After a year of intensive work, I’m delighted to announce my new “Shamanic Journey” oracle!   Description: “Embark on a mysterious journey to discover the shamanic traditions of South America! Connect to these ancient cultures and rituals with this beautifully illustrated 52-card oracle. Call upon the spirits of Teacher Plants for ...
  • Learning to love againLearning to love again
    (This article was first published in the Spring 2021 issue of Well Being Magazine) I recently had a client in consultation who was suffering from many emotional problems. Victim of repeated abuse in her childhood, she had then attracted to her partners who perpetuated these toxic and dominating relationships. Obviously, these patterns reflected a belief system that she had acquired at an early age and had strengthened over time. A few years earlier, this client had made a shamanic journey that had left a deep ...
  • The age of responsibilityThe age of responsibility
    (This article was first published in the December 2020 issue of Sacred Hoop Magazine) To say that we are living in complicated times is an understatement. The period we are going through, filled with chaos and uncertainty, presents us with many challenges. In facing this great unknown, emotions such as fear, anger and despair can easily overwhelm us. Today I would like to share with you a perspective that was delivered to me during my shamanic work in Peru with visionary plants, such as ...
  • Understanding the role of our totem animalsUnderstanding the role of our totem animals
    Reconnecting to our totem animals In shamanism, the concept of totem animals is central to many traditions. Indeed, shamans regularly commune with animal spirits: when they want to harness their power or strength, when they seek advice or vision, or when they call upon their medicine. Today, totem animals are much better known to the general public, and everyone is able to make their own connection with the animal world. One can thus receive a visit from an animal spirit, whether it is during a ...
  • Connect with animal spirits with the Spirit Animal oracle deckConnect with animal spirits with the Spirit Animal oracle deck
    Shamanism is now a subject that generates a lot of interest among those who wish to approach life from a more authentic angle. Actually, there is not just one shamanism, but a multitude of traditions, scattered all over the world. There are, however, some common points in these different approaches: in addition to various techniques for connecting to altered states of consciousness, the celebration of Mother Nature is a recurring element in all shamanic rituals. The importance of plant and animal energies is ...
  • Mapacho / Rapé icaro for calming and grounding energiesMapacho / Rapé icaro for calming and grounding energies
      In the Amazon tradition, when an apprentice follows the path of the curandero (“healer”), he follows diets that allow him to connect with the spirits of the plants. In this moment of deep communion and meditation, in total isolation, he can then receive icaros, healing songs taught directly to him by the plants he is dieting. Today I would like to share with you a personal icaro, which I received during my shamanic practice. This icaro is a prayer to the spirit of Tobacco ...
  • Desperately seeking shaman…Desperately seeking shaman...
    More and more people are becoming interested in shamanism, especially the Amazonian tradition, involving the use of visionary plants such as Ayahuasca. Indeed, this medicine has seen an incredible boom in recent years. Ayahuasca-related tourism has developed at a pace that seems almost out of control, and retreat centers are sprouting up like mushrooms in South America. In the Iquitos region alone, in the Amazon basin, there may currently be up to 70 centers offering this kind of service. This popularity does not seem ...
  • Léa and ILéa and I
      As a follow-up to my last article about our relationship to illness, I recently came across a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Entitled “Lea and I”, it tells the story of two very close friends who decide to travel to South America in search of a cure. Indeed, the central character of the documentary is Léa Moret, a nice young woman of Belgian origin living in the United States, who suffers from cystic fibrosis. Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disease mainly affecting the lungs. ...
  • Death as a counselorDeath as a counselor
    For many years, Diego Palma was an emblematic figure of the Sacred Valley, in the region of Cuzco, Peru. He allowed countless people to benefit from Ayahuasca, a plant used by shamans to cure both physical and spiritual ailments. Over time, his activity has grown to unexpected proportions, and the small town of Pisac has become a Mecca for anyone who wants to experience this powerful and mysterious medicine. I met Diego during a retreat in the Amazon jungle in 2009. It is an ...
