Very nice music video for Maestro Ayahuasquero, a multimedia live performance built around the shamanic songs of Juan Flores.
Live footage (in both Spanish and translated into English) of Tata Pedro, the head of the Council of Mayan Elders Atitlan, speaking with authors Julia and Robert Roskind (Rasta Heart, The Beauty Path, The Gathering of the Healers – One Love Press) at Lake Atitlan, Guatemala in March 2007
We have to stop consuming in our culture, we have to learn to create a
culture. Don’t watch TV, don’t read magazines (or anything in the media for
that matter)..create your own roadshow. Spend some time where you are now.
If you worry about something, or someone, some external situation that has
nothing to do with you, you are giving away your power. You want to reclaim
you mind, get it out of the hands of the cultural engineers that want to
turn you into a half baked moron consuming all this trash that’s being
manufactured out of the bones of the dying world.

Adventure in the heart of the Amazon, shamanic ritual with one of the most profound substances on earth – the ayahuasca experience. The poster of the video met with a man named Scott Peterson who has been living in / travelling to Iquitos for the last 25 years. He is an anthropologist, psychologist, philosopher, ethnobotanist who has connections with many of the indegenous shamans in the region. He runs a eco-lodge where you can go experience this incredible medicine called refugio altiplano. (My mum also went to him for a retreat.) SCOTTS WEBSITE
This is the first part of an interesting interview with Jacques Mabit, the founder of Takiwasi which translates to hanting house. He says “The idea was the result of my experience as a medical doctor, when I saw how limited traditional treatments were. I met spiritual healers – Shamans – and realised they had resources unknown in the West.” He wanted to connect the spiritual healing of traditional practices with the rationalism of Western medicine.
He is very intrigued by the ritual use of a sacred plant called ayahuasca, which creates altered states of consciousness, but which he says is non-addictive. Ayahuasca gives visions in which users can engage with the underlying causes of their drug addiction. Strong physical reactions such as vomiting can also occur.

The Oyate Lakota, The Lakota Nation, were the western-most group of the Great Sioux Nation. The other 2 groups were the Nakota and Dakota. The Lakota’s were made up of many bands that formed 7 large groups. This video is based on the writings of Luther Standing Bear who lived the traditional Lakota way until age 11 in a band within Oglala group, when they were forced onto Pine Ridge Reservation.
“Blueberry” is probably the most expensive to make film in French history, and probably the most psychedelic piece of art that the film industry has managed to produce in some time. Without doubt it is the most visually stunning and realistic portrayals of psychedelic trips ever, founded on director Jan Kounen’s personal ayahuasca trips.
Native American Indian Rights | John Echohawk, Pawnee
EMBEZZLEMENT is the fraudulent appropriation by a person to his or her own use of property or money entrusted to that person’s care but owned by someone else. This is all it is – blatant theft that continues to go on day after day after day. Now, if these CRIMES were committed by anyone else – other than the US government – they’d be doing time.
John Echohawk is a Pawnee Native American and he’s also an attorney. Aside from that, he’s a hero and a leader.

Thousands of years ago the gods came down to Earth from the stars to begin a genesis. Human civilisation was formed and reached a peak with Atlantis. A dark age began and the battle of Atlantean gods paved the way for its fall. Before this fall, a secret brotherhood brought Atlantean secret teachings to Egypt. Through all civilisations, and with inspiration from extraterrestrial guards, the secret Atlantean brotherhood managed all political systems with an educational mission. Part 1 of 25 of this thrilling documentations, starts you off on a journey that shows for the first time the secret activities of a brotherhood in relation with invisible masters from Shambhala and Agharta and the secret about the hollow earth.
Preceding the catastrophe in Atlantis all nations were dispersed. A part of the Atlantean brotherhood’s secret knowledge survived in Egypt, India and Tibet. The heirs of these secret brotherhoods led mankind during the dark age, through Atlantean knowledge and through all ages. In modern times, the Freemasons, Templars and Illuminati brotherhoods were formed. After World War I the Neutemplerorden and Thule society emerged in Munich and Vienna. These were new occult sects which saw ‘satan’ in the old Freemason lodges. Under Hitler these occult sects came into power. This thrilling documentation shows for the first time the background of the Third Reich and its intellect which led to the catastrophe of World War II.
Atlantean secret knowledge tells us the legend of mankind and those souls who have to undergo cycles. With the fall of Atlantis a high civilisation cycle had ended. All prophecies and more recent Earth changes point out that modern mankind has reached the end of the next experience cycle. Up to the year 2011, the most serious Earth and climate changes, earthquakes, social and political changes have been predicted. Within this documentation the prophecies of ELIA the returned prophet and his message on the last days will be revealed as well as Christ’s return and the space Brotherhood
Millenia have passed since the high culture of Atlantis sank with a catastrophe through power abuse of some corrupt scientists. All humans of that time, who experienced the descent into the dark age, are being reincarnated today. This docu shows the return of the Atlantean light children and allows deep insight into the role of the light-workers and brotherhoods of Atlantis. It shows why some souls reincarnate today and act as environmental protectionists, therapists, artists, esoterics etc. for the healing of the earth and its inhabitants.
ANIMAL WISDOM, THE DEFINITIVE GUIDEBOOK TO THE MYTH, FOLKLORE AND MEDICINE POWER OF ANIMALS
The Archive Book Reviews.” Another one of those books that doesn’t get nearly as much credit as it deserves, this is a superb animal totem dictionary. By far one of the best books on the topic of animal magic I’ve read. Palmer’s writing style is excellent . . . overall this is a high-quality piece of work. It’s a superior reference when researching totems, and a definite change of pace from the same old stuff.”
“This helpful guidebook looks at power animals, spirit animals, totems and some of the deeper meanings that particular animals bring to our lives, whether through dreams, unusual meetings or in a Shamanic capacity.
The author explores 70 animals from the Northern Hemisphere in a variety of ways-from physical descriptions and biological characteristics to the varied cultural legends and stories told about each animal; from traditional views of the animal’s “medicine” and power to a more modern take on the gifts each animal presents.
This is yet another very handy reference, especially for those who work on deeper levels with animal guidance.”
“This book is excellent if you want to find out every thing about one certain animal – its characteristics, traits, healing powers and the myths and legends which surround it. Well written. All in all a very interesting read.”
