Values and Guidance
- We purchase from Tribal Artisans directly, which provides them the choice to take control of their own destinies and bypasses any imposed hierarchy.
- We honor the prices set by these Tribal Artisans and never negotiate; we consider this “fair trade.”
- We pay these Artisans ahead of time for their sacraments. There is zero risk for them and their families.
- Sacraments are made to order and are therefore energetically fresh; they carry the healing energies of the medicine maker.
- Our medicines are made directly by Pajés or under their supervision. The Pajé (or shaman) is a person who has undergone deep spiritual training, under the guidance of plants.
- We work only with Artisans who live in tribal communities and not those living “in town.”
- We research those people who respect the “old ways.” Everything they do is handmade/grown/collected and charged with strong prayers.
- The artisans we collaborate with naturally cultivate their own 'Tabaco Mói' (Nicotiana tabacum), a tradition they have maintained for centuries. Please be aware that rapé made with Sabiá tobacco utilizes mass-produced tobacco, which is less natural. This approach enables mass production and cost-cutting, making it an inferior choice for a true sacrament.
- We view the rapeh, kambo and sananga we offer as sacred instruments of healing. When approached with care and proper guidance, these sacraments unlock profound transformation in those called to work with them.
- Set the stage for optimal growth by greeting these allies respectfully as teachers, not treatments. Listen without judgement, establishing trust rooted in patience and acceptance. Surrender to each medicine’s unique wisdom, on its schedule, not yours.
- True plant spirit medicines ask us to walk their paths with humble courage. The healing manifests gently, organically - in alignment with each seeker’s readiness to receive the gifts waiting within. Our role is to steward this sacred transition in service to human awakening.
A true plant medicine offers guidance if you quiet the mind to listen. In gentle ways, it reveals how one may walk in step with its healing rhythms. Do not rush its blossoming or your own.
Stay open to direction from the medicine itself - where it wishes to take you, what it asks you to consider, when integration is right. Move through each passage at the pace it sets for you. This careful attendant patience allows the medicine’s authentic voice to come forward.
In stillness, understanding will grow of proper use, dosage, duration. More so, deeper intuition develops sensing when a period of working together is complete for now. There comes a knowing when to incorporate lessons before saying thankful farewell. For now. True plant allies depart only to circle back when the student stands ready once more to receive their gifts.
About Your Journey
The ultimate goal of any sacrament is to facilitate wholeness and self-realization. In the shamanic view, healing is a sacred process of aligning one's physical, emotional and spiritual energies to support personal liberation and empowerment.
When working with plant medicines, guidance is provided based on listening closely to the medicine, leading the individual through a transformational experience. This process is focused on reconnecting them to their inherent ability to heal. As the medicine imparts clarity, it gradually releases the person from past traumas or limiting beliefs. What emerges from this journey is a renewed sense of purpose and a deeper understanding of one's divine nature.
As healers, we walk beside others on this journey with deep respect and humility. We understand the medicines we steward are part of Creation's mysterious support for human awakening. Our mission is to be humble conduits for this ancient, sacred process of alignment, realization and actualization.
Ultimately, the goal is for each person to fully embody their gifts and medicine power. When the student is ready, the teacher appears to confirm what lies within: 'You have always been the healer you searched for outside yourself'.
