What we're about

A welcoming community of open-minded people with different backgrounds who have an interest in inner exploration. Our discussion topics tend to center around shamanic techniques , plant medicine, expansion of consciousness and spirituality. We are interested in growing as human beings by integrating our spiritual experiences into our lifestyles and sharing our knowledge with each other.

The topics of conversation at meetings are our experiences with traditional visionary medicines and sacramental use of entheogens. As well as things that tie into these ideas:

  • Techniques and methods of trance and inner-exploration: entheogens, drumming, chanting, prayer, breathwork, trance, fasting, lucid dreaming.

    Sweat Lodge, Medicine Wheel, Nature Based Spirituality

    Entheogens as a catalyst for revelation and inspiration in Art and Music.

    Exploration of Human and Cosmic Consciousness

    Energy work and healing: Spiritual Herbalism, Acupuncture, Qigong, etc

    Experiences of Ego Death, Gnosis, Mystic Union, Samadhi, etc.
    Camping, Hiking, Lodging, Traveling.

    Work of such luminaries as: Hofmann, Schultes, Shulgin, Hancock, Grof and so much more.

Please recognize the laws concerning some of the plants that have entheogenic uses. We do not condone illegal activities during meetups. Don't join just to find a "hookup". If that is your sole purpose for joining, you will be removed from the group.

This group was started to create an exchange of information, and opportunities for its diverse members to share new ideas and come to their own conclusions. Please remain open-minded, and respectful of other members' opinions and experiences.

I'm pleased to see the growing interest in this topic, and I hope that this group will facilitate more connections between philosophers, artists, healers, and all those who are intrigued by the idea of such a community. This is a very exciting time!

Kambo Ceremony and Workshop

Issaquah (private home)

RSVP WITH TRAVIS DIRECTLY, NOT THROUGH THIS MEETUP - [masked]

Kambo is a powerful medicine from the Amazon - the skin secretion of the Giant Monkey Tree Frog phyllomedusa bicolor. This secretion is applied directly into the lymphatic system via burn gates in the epidermis using traditional methods used by tribal people for thousands of years.

Treatments involve a deep physical and energetic cleansing of the body that can be used to treat a number of conditions ranging from depression, physical illness, CFS, auto-immune, migraines, laziness, chronic pain, infections or toxins, Parkinsons, Alzheimers, cancer, diabetes, viral infections and other issues. It is especially helpful for getting through big blockages, resistance or creating big breakthroughs. This is an especially good time of the year to work with kambo as it helps strengthen the immune system before flu and cold season and can also help greatly with seasonal depression (SAD).

The ceremony will be conducted by Travis Bodick.. Travis is trained in safe and effective treatments of Kambo. All of our medicine is sourced locally from the Matses tribe in Peru helping support their way of life.

Our first concern with kambo is always safety - and when proper safety precautions are observed this medicine is extremely safe. Because of our concern for your safety we do have a list of contraindications as well as a list of cautions:

Contraindications:
• Pregnant or breast feeding mothers with babies under one year
• Stroke, aneurysm, brain hemorrhage, blood clots
• Serious heart conditions, including surgeries or an enlarged heart
• Extremely low blood pressure that is controlled by medication
• Recent surgery or serious wounds, externally or internally not fully healed
• History of serious head injury resulting in blood on the brain
• History of rupture or injury of the esophagus
• Chemotherapy or radiation treatments 4weeks prior or 6months following
• Recent user of diuretics or immunosuppressant medications
• History of serious mental health conditions, except for depression
• Cognitive disorders preventing the understanding of kambo

Cautions:
• Severe eating disorders
• Menstrual flow OK, but will increase for 24-36 hours
• Alcohol or recreational drugs within 24 hours
• Certain herbal or nootropic (smart drug) supplements
• Asthma OK, but must have an inhaler present
• Diabetes OK, but fasting exceptions made if required
• If you have any major acute or chronic mental or physical illness please consult with practitioner

This workshop will have a limit of 4 participants because I want to give everyone lots of personal attention during their treatment. We will be doing introductory treatments of 3-6 points of kambo. 3 points is often perfect for your first experience as it is strong enough for a complete effect and benefits but not overwhelming - this teaches you to work with kambo in the best way so that the next treatment you can go deeper if you wish.

We will begin by covering some basics about kambo and Amazonian curanderismo. After this one participant at a time will receive a treatment - each treatment will likely last 20-30 minutes. With this smaller amount of kambo most people will purge still, but it is possible you may not purge. There will be a good cleansing and connection with the medicine. Even a smaller treatment like this can be challenging and powerful - this is a serious medicine with powerful healing capabilities and people who show up ready to embrace the medicine will get the most out of the ceremony. The ceremony will also offer optional treatments with Rapé.

RSVP VIA THIS PAGE WILL NOT RESERVE YOUR SPACE IN CEREMONY. To make sure you are able to attend the ceremony please contact Travis directly at [masked] . It is helpful if you can also include your intention for working with kambo and any health issues you may have - being totally honest about your health and any medications you may be on is vitally important for your safety in the ceremony. Kambo is safe when used correctly but there are a few situations where kambo may be contraindicated or need special care.

When you contact me we will go over basic details about the ceremony and I will give you preparation information. Your place in the ceremony will be reserved with a $30 deposit (through paypal or check or in person). Ceremonies are $120 each (or 3 for $320). People who do 3 rounds within a moon cycle (28 days) sometimes report the deepest benefits. Ceremony will start at 10am and go until we finish - usually around 2pm.

Please contact me with any questions.

Plant Spirit Medicine Discussion Group

Victrola Coffee and Art.

This group is for anyone who wants to meet in Seattle to talk about Plant based medicines, plant based spirituality, shamanism, and entheogens. The plant world is full of wisdom, personality and healing for the whole world to benefit from, if we only listen to their spirits!

Anyone with an interest in Ayahuasca, San Pedro, Peyote, Amanita mushrooms, Psilocybin mushrooms, Datura, Iboga - let's talk! Anyone interested in spiritual herbalism, dieta, sacred plants, healing with entheogens - let's talk! Anyone interested in making medicine? Anyone interested in traveling to locations like the Andes or Amazon to work with medicine? Me too - let's talk!

This group includes experienced and beginners interested in plant medicines and spirituality who can all share our different experiences and ideas. There are so many ways to work with plants, and so many different plants to work with! As for myself - I have been working with plant medicines for about 15+ years, and I spend time every year in Peru working with plant medicines under the watchful guidance of local healers (I also host retreats to Peru to work with medicine). I perform my own ceremonies, and attend ceremonies with more experienced healers, so if you want to create your own ceremony, attend a guided ceremony locally, or travel to Peru for ceremony, and can probably share some helpful information! I love to share my experience and also love to learn from others, so I know this group will be lots of fun!

We will meet at Victrola Coffee on 15th in the Capital Hill area. Street parking is free but sometimes tricky to find a spot. We have the back room reserved from 5-7pm.

Hope to see you there!

Stream of Miracles Peru Retreat!

Cusco

8 days of transformation in Cusco, Peru with an optional 2 day extension to Machu Picchu!

We are lucky to have the perfect location and best shamans around for this journey. We will stay at a private retreat next to the Temple of the Moon just outside Cusco which gives us easy access to the city of Cusco as well as all the mystical temples surrounding the city. San Pedro ceremonies will be hosted by Lesley Myburgh (also known as "La Gringa" - 30+ years experience) and Ayahuasca ceremonies will be hosted by Kush and Erika (50+ years experience). After many years traveling Peru these are the best and most caring healers we have found, so you are in for a treat!

We offer 2 San Pedro ceremonies, 2 Ayahuasca ceremonies, and also additional special ceremonies with the Q'ero tribe who are considered the most traditional culture still in Peru. There will also be workshops on local mysticism and spirituality as well as some free time to explore Cusco and experience the culture firsthand. We believe in sustainable tourism so we will also take you to see the local animal sancturary where our visit can support them rehabilitating poached endangered animals (that also happen to be the sacred animals of Peru like the puma and condor!). There is also an option to visit the 'Crystal City" Machu Picchu!
