Psychological healing and Ayahuasca, Benifits of Ayahuasca, The future of Ayahuasca
Ayahuasca is a powerful healing tool and we hope to help her to heal the world. This page supports a young man from the Shipibo Tribe who is the future of Ayahuasca, combining his knowledge of his culture with Western Psychology.
Psychological & Shamanic Fusion
I am proud and deeply humbled to introduce you to Ronin Soi (Nils) who is a 16 year old member of the Shipibo Tribe. Never in my life have i been so struck and spellbound by the words, wisdom and heart of such a young person. This young man is a tribute to what we can be when we live a life in harmony with nature and away from all the chaos and noise. Every word he spoke was one of truth and a depth of understanding about the world, life and human nature that far surpassed the clarity with which I have heard many adults speak within the Western world.
I want to support and know Nils better because he is the next generation of Shipibo and whilst many of his friends are spellbound by the smart phone access to Facebook, he is keen to keep his culture alive. He has rallied his friends to make a band and practice the ancestral rhythms of the tribal past. On my last day there they all arrived to play me off, Nils in his traditional cusma (ceremonial gown). Never have I been so moved, the rhythms struck at my core and were the living heart beat of the jungle and i could feel Ayahuasca dancing within me, through me and around me.
Nils is proud of his culture and keen to share. Recently he has made a short film with some French film makers which inadvertently showed him his future. Keen to show all elements of the tribe, Nils drank Ayahuasca for the first time on film. This, he said “changed his life forever” . Nils has a sharp mind and has always had an interest in human psychology and a desire to study in this field.
After sitting with Ayahuasca it was very clear to him that his path was indeed to study Psychology to better understand the Western Mind and that he would then be in the unique position to open a healing centre within the Jungle that combines an understanding of Western Psychology and his root of Shamanic Tribal Practices.
We are all currently waiting for his acceptance onto his Psychology course, of which their is fierce competition, as in Western Universities for places. In my heart, there is no doubt that he will be accepted and we fully intend to be with him every step of the way and through Shakruna Clothing and Community based projects find the financial support he will need to make his dream a reality.
