Awakening The Cosmic Serpent: Shamanism And Plant Teachers In This Transformative Time


This course
gives you the tools you need to integrate the shamanic knowledge
offered by teacher plants into your life, so you can fully embrace the
change called for by this time of global transformation.  Indigenous
wisdom about plant medicine can open the path to deep personal healing
and a profound understanding of the universe, and for many people this
ancient knowledge is transforming modern life.


the Western World, people increasingly participate in indigenous
shamanic ceremonies using psychedelic plants to open a path to deep
personal insights and high spiritual truths. These plants — including
mushrooms, peyote, ayahuasca, and salvia divinorum — are revered by
ancient tribal societies as potent teachers capable of healing the body,
expanding the mind, and strengthening community.


What can
modern people can learn from indigenous cultures about the use of
psychoactive plants and the modification of consciousness?

What can be
learned directly from these plants — which can be powerful and tricky
teachers — and how can we incorporate these lessons into our daily

In what ways
do indigenous people benefit from the Western interest in shamanism,
and what new cultural bridges are being built through the spread of
indigenous spiritual practices?


The renowned
anthropologist Jeremy Narby has explored these questions for over two
decades. In his much-admired books, including The Cosmic Serpant and
Shamans Through Time, Jeremy has shared his wisdom and insights. For
the first time, in this special video teleseminar series, he will
pursue these questions through two exclusive online lectures, and
one-on-one discussions with four of the world’s leading experts on the
shamanic use of mind-altering plants: Stanislav Grof, Wade Davis, Kat
Harrison and Luis Eduardo Luna.


You will be
part of this unique online event — unlike any in the history of
consciousness studies -· watching the live video stream and asking your
questions directly to these inspirational pioneers.


6 calls, starts January 23

It’s a series
of live online video courses we call the Evolver Intensives, which
we’re producing with the Prophets Conferences. The first course, hosted
by Jeremy Narby, is titled “Awakening the Cosmic Serpent: Shamanism
and Plant Teachers in the Transformative Time.” For the course, Jeremy
will give 2 lectures, and also conduct 4 one-to-one discussions with
guests Stan Grof, Wade Davis, Kat Harrison, and Luis Eduardo Luna. All
this takes place using a real-time, interactive video technology easily
accessible to anyone with a laptop and a broadband connection. If you
can see YouTube videos, you can take part in an Evolver Intensives
seminar. It starts on Jan 23 and runs on 6 consecutive Sundays at 4pm

The Traditional Wisdom Diet and Herbal with Brad Teasdale


Part 1 / Winter:

This workshop
is the 1st of a four-part series which explores the traditional wisdom
and practice of living in deeper harmony and alignment with nature. In a
small group setting we explore a new approach to health and diet
through the synthesis of traditional teachings from: indigenous North
& South America, China, and ancient Europe.  Each
meeting of this 4 part series coincides with the cardinal points of the
calendar (the winter solstice, spring equinox, summer solstice, and
autumnal equinox). We discuss the elemental, physiological &
energetic correspondences of each season and explore specific diets,
herbal remedies, and grounding practices that resonate with the time of
year. Seasonal foods, herbal cleanses, and local medicinal plants are
discussed in depth. Each participant is encouraged to share their own
wisdom and experience with the group. For those who wish to go deeper – a
private program of herbal cleanses & bodywork sessions are also
available to further integrate the teaching and healing of the season.

Please join us for the next meeting of the Church of Craft.   The
season is upon us! And despite my best snarky intentions, I am
starting to feel the jingle bells. Maybe you have decided to knit a
scarf for every member of your family, maybe you are honing your

to contribute to or volunteer for, or maybe you are anticipating
spending time with/away from your family, and all that can mean.
Wherever your spirit is, it will benefit from some dedicated crafting
in community time. So bring your needles, your recipe file, your plans
for the future, and any family or friends who happen to be in town!  It
is true, the sewing machines mostly work! The labs come equipped with
your basics: scissors, tape, pens, thread, but I encourage you to bring
supplies that you want to work with in addition to what is there. More
about the labs at:  Etsy
is all about encouraging people to make stuff, just like us, so we get
to have this special event craft-on every month, where access to all
of their goodies is totally free. If you like it there you can go back
and craft Monday evenings!  Our meeting will be the usual
casual drop in affair, come any time, bring anyone, bring anything you
are working on or come & just check out what everyone else is up
to. Snacks are welcome.  Can’t make the weekday meetings?
We have a Sunday meeting too at the awesome SpaceCraft in Williamsburg!

A Winter Solstice Shamanic Celebration


With Itzhak
Beery and the NY Shamanic Circle…This evening we will celebrate one of
the most powerful moments in the annual cycle: the night after which
the days slowly begin to lengthen. As our ancient ancestors all around
the globe did before us, we will honor the rebirth of Tata Inti (Father
Sun) from the depth of the longest, darkest nights. We will
commemorate this shortest day and longest night in recognition of our
own struggle to overcome our shadows, fears and inner darkness to
mirror within ourselves the triumphant return of the light that will
empower our Spirit. Join us in a sacred shamanic fire ceremony,
drumming, music, songs and movements.  Note: Bring a
rattle, drum and candle. No previous shamanic experience necessary. The
actual time for winter solstice is at 6:38pm.  Itzhak
Beery is a NYC-based shamanic healer who conducts shamanic workshops in
the U.S., Israel and Hawaii. He trained intensively with the
Ecuadorian Quechua, Shuar, Uru-eu-wau-wau and other South American
indigenous shamans, and is a co-founder of the NY Shamanic Circle. 


Note: Bring a
rattle, drum and candle. No previous shamanic experience necessary.
The actual time for winter solstice is at 6:38pm.

It was the
day before Thanksgiving. Winkel & Balktick stood under the

they removed their shoes and belts and hoped that their nail clippers
would not be discovered, they wondered, “What happened to the glamour,
excitement and joy of air travel?”  Upon returning to
Brooklyn, they convened a meeting of the jet-settingest artists,
performers, DJ and bands from the borough and beyond. They pow-wowed
with the investors, attorneys and regulators. The runways were clear and
all systems were ready for takeoff.  On New Year’s Eve,
W&B Airlines will debut its 45,000+ square foot terminal of love in a
warehouse in Sunset Park’s Industry City Airport. The W&B
Terminal’s debonair Frequent Flyer Lounge & Cabaret, Kings County

Nature as Wisdom: A Rainforest Plant Medicine Council Gathering

Jan 7-17, 2011 and Jan 19-29, 2011


This January,
join Reality Sandwich editorial director Daniel Pinchbeck for a
special 10-day retreat in Costa Rican rainforest with the elders of the
Secoya tribe. Daniel writes, “Almost a decade ago, I first went down to
the Amazon in Ecuador to visit the Secoya, a tribe of seven hundred
who maintain an ancient lineage of shamanic practice. I wrote about the
journey at length in my book Breaking Open the Head. It was truly one
of the most amazing times of my life, and I still feel grateful that I
had an opportunity to apprentice with the Secoya shamans, elders in
their 60s and 70s who are wise, giggling jungle wizards, and true


“Because the
Secoya’s homeland is under threat by the oil companies, my friend, the
ethnobotanist Jonathan Miller Weisberger, is bringing the elder shamans
of the tribe to his extraordinary lodge in Costa Rica, Guaria de Osa,
for two ten-day plant medicine retreats. Guaria de Osa is a wildlife
paradise with chattering monkeys in the trees, sea turtles spawning on
the beach, whales breaching, lizards skittering, and so on. It is an
ideal place to hold ceremonial space.”
