Join ERIE and co-hosts Plantando Consciencia and Floresta dos Unicornios for an evening workshop on Ayahuasca with Leopardo Yawabane from the Huni Kuin tribe of the northwestern Brazilian Amazon
CIIS Room 304 (3rd floor)Thursday July 31 from 7-10pm
The (post)modern mind is facing the coming to consciousness of the devastating consequences
industrial civilization has imparted on the ecology of the planet. Sensing this disruptive reality deep in our
hearts, people from all over the world have been drawn towards ayahuasca, the mysterious psychoactive
brew that has been used for centuries by people from the Amazon for healing, communion and divination.
But as happens with every romance during its early stages, while the enamored perception of the
other (in this case, ayahuasca) fills our hearts with joy, it also blinds us to the full nature of our partner,
heightening only the desired qualities that we project. And after the honeymoon is over, then you are left
with the work to do.
Taking advantage of the wisdom he has been endowed with, Leopardo Yawabane, born and raised
among the Huni Kuin tribe in northwestern part of the Brazilian Amazon, will join us in the company of his
partner, Brazilian anthropologist and healer Nicole Roitman, and PCC student Marcelo Schenberg, to
guide us through a grounded way of exploring the benefits of this sacred marriage between humans and the
In this workshop you will learn:
The foundations necessary for bringing back the experience into our daily lives.
How to integrate the gifts from this ancestral medicine into a framework of mind designed to function
in the modern mode alone.
Templates for applying these spiritual encounters into a cohesive personal cosmology.
The difference between occasional psychonautics and regular and ceremonial medicinal use.
How to apply the right intention for the ceremony and the concrete benefits you can get from it.
We look forward to seeing you for this amazing event
