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 Ethnobotany and Ethnomycology, and sacramental use of entheogens in archaic and contemporary traditions. As well as things that tie into these ideas:

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

Yoga, Pranayama, Tantra.

Sweat Lodge, Medicine Wheel, Nature Based Spirituality

Themes of Unity, Synchronicity, and Heart-Centered 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, Reiki, Qigong, Tai Chi.

Experiences of Ego Death, Gnosis, Mystic Union, Samadhi, etc.

Astrology, Occult, Kabbalah, Tarot, etc.

Animistic, Hermetic, Yogic, Wiccan, Thelemic, Taoist Magic.

Ancient Religions, Ceremonies and Rituals, Mystical Traditions, Sacred Texts.

Incense, Herbs, Oils.

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

Private Residence in Issaquah

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. Check out our website: http://www.soulremedy.org Feel free to join our newsletter: http://www.soulremedy.org/newsletter/4592624326

Stream of Miracles Peru Retreat

Cusco

8 days of transformation in Cusco, Peru with an optional 2 day extension to Machu Picchu! This is a special retreat unlike any other! Healing with Ayahuasca, San Pedro and Rapé in deeply focused and traditional ceremonies as well as the very special treat to experience traditional ceremony with the Q'ero tribe. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity! After experiencing many different retreats and ways of working with plant medicines, we wanted to create a special experience offering many of the available perspectives and teachings of indigenous medicine. We combined styles of practice that do not conflict at all, but actually expand on and compliment each other in many powerful ways. This way you can experience how the different medicines work and how different shamans perform healing to find which way works best for you. While Ayahuasca is extremely visionary and excels at cleaning out the darker corners of our being, San Pedro fills us with light and love to transcend darkness. While some of our shamans work very hands off helping you learn to heal yourself by listening to the plants, we also work with shamans who are very hands on and show you how much can be accomplished by someone knowledgeable in channeling the spirits of nature. You get to experience multiple perspectives this way because each perspective is valuable and has something important to teach us. We use Ayahuasca made only with the vine itself (banisteriopsis caapi) and chacruna (psychotria viridis). When combined these plants are a powerful medicine that helps the drinker enter the worlds of the spirits and plants so they can find guidance and healing. This medicine offers a powerful look into your own soul to see the deepest truth of your inner being so that you can bring new perspective to your thoughts and actions and bring new healing to all parts of your being. San Pedro is known as the one who holds the Keys to Heaven. Also known by the more ancient name Wachuma, San Pedro lets you see yourself, the planet, and your life with the eyes of divinity. Often referred to as heart medicine, San Pedro will show you the true depths of your own divinity, so that you can bring forth what is within you to share with the world in the most empowered way possible. Rapé is a snuff medicine found in the Amazon made mostly from sacred jungle tobacco (mapacho) combined with other sacred plants and resins. A blow pipe is used to administer the snuff into the nose and this medicine provides deep grounding, clearer thinking and energetic cleaning. We are blessed to have the greatest guides for our journey - Lesley and her sons Mark and Simon host San Pedro with almost 30 years of experience. Lesley has an angelic presence that is so caring and loving, it is impossible not to meet San Pedro with an open heart in her garden. Kush and Erika host Ayahuasca for us with about 50 years experience - their ceremonies are like a true celebration of life and magic. He brings an abundant joy and openness to his ceremonies and his musical performances are out of this world! We also work with a family of Q'ero paqo's who train from childhood as healers and priests - the Q'ero tribe are considered to be the most traditional culture still living in Peru and are especially renowned for their healing abilities. Travis has 14 years of experience working with plant medicines and will be helping each and every ceremony run smoothly. We all have our own healing styles, but we love to work together and share the magic of nature and the plants! At the end of the 8 day retreat there is an optional add-on for those who wish to visit Machu Picchu. Contact Travis for more info at [masked]
