I just returned home from the Amazon jungle’s of Peru. I went there with Michael Sonn to stay with the Shipibo Indians in their village. Michael brings interested people to this remote location for the purpose of doing personal visionary work with the plant medicine called “Ayahuasca”. His company Amazon Medicinals provided a safe and memorable experience for the group.

Michael is considered a Shaman or Onaya by the Shipibo people and has spent over a decade learning this ancient body of healing knowledge. Michael’s maestro or teachers led our ceremonies during our visit, however, Michael was asked several times by his teachers to offer his knowledge and healing ikaros ( healing plant songs ) to our group during the night.

Ayahuasca cleans out the system of all toxins, and while it may seem unpleasant to vomit, it is an accepted part of the ceremony and healing. The beginning of a ceremony is often an unsettling time, as people purge themselves physically, and transition from one dimension to another along their spiritual pathways.

After several ceremonies a noticeable shift occurred within the group. Our faces softened as well as our attitudes. Our hearts opened and the essence of the Divine began to work it’s magic within each person. After a ceremony the healing can begin as a subtle experience, gentle and long lasting, deeply profound and insightful for each individual. I returned home very grateful more balanced and ready to embrace the next phase of my life with the happiness and joy that has been woven into my heart, mind, body and spirit by this sacred plant teacher.

Thank you Michael for doing this sacred work.

He who lives the inner life knows that death is truly his resting-room. To him, death is anything but extinction. It is a meaningful departure. When our consciousness is divinely transformed, the necessity of death will not arise at all. To transform life, we need Peace, Light, Bliss and Power. We cry for these divine qualities. They cry for our aspiration. They are equally anxious to grant us everlasting life. But until our body, vital, mind, heart and soul aspire together, the divine Power, Light, Bliss and Peace cannot possess us.
