Manari Ushigua has been a key figure in the indigenous movement of Ecuador since 1999, raising awareness about the threat to his homeland. Manari is indigenous, forest defender, traditional healer and spiritual and political leader of the Sápara Nation in the Amazon Ecuadorian.
“We have lost our relationship with our land and life itself, but it’s not too late to turn the story around. If we begin to remember our dreams and live consciously, as one member in this network of life, the story of humanity can continue. We are currently at a crossroads, facing both climate change and a pandemic. It’s time to write the new story.” – Manari Ushigua.
Remember your dreams to find your roots and live your mission. Although the modern world doesn’t pay much attention to dreams or teaching their youth about the power of this special gift and using it as a tool to guide life, Sápara Nation in the Amazon Rainforest revolve their lives around dreams.
Through our dreams, we receive the information we need for the following days, weeks and months. Through our dreams, we will find the answers for life’s most complex challenges.
The sacred plant of tobacco -also known as Auneka- has been used for thousands of years by indigenous people such as the Sápara. The way the Sáparas take this medicine is through the nose, once the medicine is inhaled we will be guided by Manari with traditional ícaros, as he connects with the spirit of the medicine, to unify our hearts and vision for the new story being written.
The tobacco medicine invites you into a deep state of meditation which can liberate many emotions and parts of our unconscious mind.
Marta will share with us about the sacred medicine of cacao as we drink and aligning our collective intention in the ritual. This powerful and heart opener medicine comes from the Guatemalan lake Atitlán. This is the time when live music will take place: drums, guitar, hand pan and singing.
We will close the ritual by sharing in a circle what visions and emotions come up with the medicine.
In this immersive experience conducted by Manari Ushigua and Marta Salcedo we will work on the intention:
Despite the moment of great difficulty that humanity is going through, life will continue to circulate on this planet. We will align our emotions to lead life without confusion. Releasing conflict, anxiety and stress, guilt and lack of faith and security.
