Shamanic Healing With Ayahuasca Scott Peterson

By Viola Woolcott

Scott Peterson is the Founder and Director of the Refugio Altiplano. Scott grew up in Michigan and took his first trip to South America when he was 17 to teach English in Ecuador and travel across the continent. He studied philosophy, anthropology and literature at Calvin College, UCSC, and the University of New Mexico. He studied herbal and shamanic medicine in New Mexico, Arizona and California with the Taos, Navajo and Hopi Indians in the Native American Church. He continued his shamanic and medicine studies in Brazil, Nepal and Indonesia, and lived in Bolivia and the Peruvian Andes for eight years, working and doing research on healing and belief systems. He worked with Shipibo and coastal shamans in Peru for seven years before locating the ideal location for an exceptional healing center. He established the Refugio Altiplano in 1996.

The Refugio Altiplano combines the wisdom of 1000s of years of shamanism with the knowledge of the use of healing plants and the mother of all medicines, Ayahuasca.

The Refugio Altiplano is a natural retreat of beauty, wilderness and solitude available year-round for international guests to engage in adventure, healing, balance, and alignment.

Personal view and experience:

Having done a workshop with Scott I like to add my un-biased and honest observation that for me it was the most authentic, sophisticated, exquisitely orchestrated center of profound shamanic healing and teaching I have encountered so far in my extensive personal research. The center is located in an exclusive, natural, relaxed, beautiful setting, and surrounded by the magic of the wild world of the Amazon jungle.

Shamanism Aliens And Ayahuasca Graham Hancock

Shamanism Aliens & Ayahuasca : Graham Hancock Pt.1

This interview is HIGHLY recommended. Researcher and author Graham Hancock
presented his thesis that “supernatural” entities such as aliens and fairies
are infact transdimensional beings that humans encounter during altered
states of consciousness. The ability to shapeshift has been ascribed to both
modern aliens as well as elves and other entities reported centuries ago, he

Around 35,000 to 40,000 years ago, humans underwent a sudden change and the
emergence of cave and rock paintings are evidence of this, Hancock said, who
noted that some of their depictions were of part human/part animal forms. He
believes these represent the supernatural entities, and through altered
states (probably due to ingesting plant hallucinogens), humans learned
advanced skills from their encounters with these beings.

Nowadays, shamans frequently have such altered state communications. They
feel humanity is at a crossroads– the West has lost contact with the spirit
world, and many of the world’s woes are due to this. As part of his
experiential research, Hancock travelled to South America and took the
psychedelic brew Ayahuasca. During one such episode, he described a
confrontation with an alien being, but rather than being an
extraterrestrial, he suggested it inhabits another dimension that can only
be accessed when in an altered state.

Very interesting book:

Amazonian Attraction Medicine The Pusanga

The Western rational mind can only struggle, to ingest as an example the famed ‘love potion’ of the Amazon known as the Pusanga. In rational terms it makes no sense, how can a concoction of leaves, roots, and seeds attract a lover, or good luck to you?

Hopi Prophecy

Posted by Viola Woolcott

A beautiful video with beautiful music, I LOVE it! The video contains a prophecy about the Hopi people, that talks about us all living as one and going through great changes and destruction on Earth. It is very positive, inspiring, and rings true in my heart and soul.

The Hopi are a Native American people who primarily live on the 6,557,262 km² (2,531.773 sq mi) Hopi Reservation in north-eastern Arizona. In 2000 a census of the population counted 6,946 persons. The largest community is First Mesa, Arizona. Townsdwellers for many centuries, the Hopi village of Old Oraibi, located on Third Mesa, is the oldest continuously occupied settlement in the USA, founded about the year 1100. The Navajo reservation surrounds the Hopi the reservation.

The name Hopi, is a shortening of what these Native American people call themselves, Hopi’sinom, or “People Who Live in the Correct Way.” The catholic encyclopaedia states the name Hopi as having been derived from ‘Hopita’, which means those who are “peaceful ones.” Hopi is a concept deeply rooted in the culture’s spirituality, and its view of morality and ethics. To be Hopi is to endeavour toward this concept, which involves a state of total reverence and respect for all things, to be at peace with these things, and to live in accordance with the instructions of Maasaw, the Creator/Caretaker of Earth. The Hopi observe their traditional ceremonies for the benefit of the whole world.

A must watch video featuring Stanislav Grof, a true pioneer in the field of
psychedelics. Some excerpts below.

‘My personal belief is that psychedelics used responsibly under supervision
would be a major tool of transformation. If you do it responsibly and you
offer yourself loving support, so that you build it into the setting, then
it’s a powerful tool and really changing people in a predictable way, which
is lowering levels of aggression, increasing tolerance, increasing
compassion, and what also develops somehow quite spontaneously is tremendous
ecological awareness. You don’t have to teach people ecology and they
experience their fundamental oneness with everything. They realise that
whatever we are doing to the environment we are doing to ourselves.’

‘They open up dimensions of reality which are auto genetically real, or some
interesting radically different perspective on every day reality. This is
not a philosophical speculation, this is something that can be pragmatically
tested, and in a non-ordinary states you can have the experience of your
boundaries melting and your consciousness expanding, but it encompasses much
larger units becoming – becoming other people experiencing group
consciousness, experiencing identification with various animal species,
identification with archetypal beings, visits to archetypal domains and so

‘And there is also a very significant experience, in which you can have a
sense of becoming the divine, becoming the creative principles. There are
extremes; on one side you can have ecstatic rapture, a state of peace, of
bliss that passes all understanding – celestial, paradisial kind of states.
On the other side there could be hellish states, there could be abysmal
despair, there could be tremendous anxiety, there could be profound feelings
of guilt – there could be anything in between.’

But at the beginning of the cradle of all major religions were visionary
experiences of the prophets, saints, of the founders of the religion and
also of the early disciples
