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


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


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


What can modern people can learn from indigenouscultures about the use of psychoactive plants and the modification ofconsciousness?


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


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


The renowned anthropologist Jeremy Narby hasexplored these questions for over two decades. In his much-admired books, includingThe Cosmic Serpant and Shamans Through Time, Jeremy has shared his wisdom andinsights. For the first time, in this special video teleseminar series, he willpursue these questions through two exclusive online lectures, and one-on-onediscussions with four of the world's leading experts on the shamanic use ofmind-altering plants: Stanislav Grof, Wade Davis, Kat Harrison and Luis EduardoLuna.


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


6 calls, starts January 23

It's a series of live online video courses we callthe Evolver Intensives, which we're producing with the Prophets Conferences. Thefirst course, hosted by Jeremy Narby, is titled "Awakening the CosmicSerpent: Shamanism and Plant Teachers in the Transformative Time." For thecourse, Jeremy will give 2 lectures, and also conduct 4 one-to-one discussionswith guests Stan Grof, Wade Davis, Kat Harrison, and Luis Eduardo Luna. Allthis takes place using a real-time, interactive video technology easilyaccessible to anyone with a laptop and a broadband connection.

This January, join Reality Sandwich editorialdirector Daniel Pinchbeck for a special 10-day retreat in Costa Ricanrainforest with the elders of the Secoya tribe. Daniel writes, “Almost a decadeago, I first went down to the Amazon in Ecuador to visit the Secoya, a tribe ofseven hundred who maintain an ancient lineage of shamanic practice. I wroteabout the journey at length in my book Breaking Open the Head. It was truly oneof the most amazing times of my life, and I still feel grateful that I had anopportunity to apprentice with the Secoya shamans, elders in their 60s and 70swho are wise, giggling jungle wizards, and true maestros.


“Because the Secoya's homeland is under threat bythe oil companies, my friend, the ethnobotanist Jonathan Miller Weisberger, isbringing the elder shamans of the tribe to his extraordinary lodge in CostaRica, Guaria de Osa, for two ten-day plant medicine retreats. Guaria de Osa isa wildlife paradise with chattering monkeys in the trees, sea turtles spawningon the beach, whales breaching, lizards skittering, and so on. It is an idealplace to hold ceremonial space.”
