Ayahuasca Punku Yatray
Ayahuaska Punku Yatray, or the „Ayahuaska Gate to Knowledge” in Quechua, is a Transpersonal Shamanism Research Project for the investigation of modified states of consciousness using sacred plants of the Peruvian Amazonia. The ceremonial setting opens the doorway to spirituality and self awareness.
Our project is centered in the use of the Ayahuaska, recognized by native tradition as a „teacher plant”. The ritual context combines indigenous shamanism with eastern philosophy. The medicine Ayahuaska has enormous potential, facilitating ancestral healing and self discovering, far beyond the frontiers of conventional treatment.
Our interest is focused on the expanded states of consciousness reached during the experience of the Ayahuaska and the healing process that can be achieved within this experience. The experience brings about the possibility of personal growth. The capacity of Ayahuaska to cleanse psychological and emotional blockages allow us to see clearly the psychosomatic causes of illness and reach more elevated states of consciousness.
Ayahuasca ceremonies are provided in the traditional style. A dose of Ayahuaska medicine is given with prayers and tobacco smoke at about 9pm or 10pm at night, the lights are turned off, and everyone lies down to wait for the effect to start. Once the effect has started, the Curandero sings Ikaros (medicine songs). These songs come directly from the plant spirits he has with him, according to the needs of the people in the ceremony. The effect of Ayahuaska varies from one ceremony to the next, but often it involves clearing emotional issues, sometimes physically by vomiting into a bucket, or seeing visions of the plant spirits which come to help, or visions of other things, or reaching understandings about life issues and so on. After about 4-5 hours the effect diminishes, and then it is possible to sleep until the morning.
I am a co-founder of the O.N.G Remenau, organization dealing with environmental protection and natural medicine from the Amazonian Rainforest.
The Ayahuaska Punku Yatray team and the MASTERS CURANDEROS FROM THE CITY OF PUCALLPA – PERU (map) has done extensive research in traditional Ayahuaska shamanism practices. In the Ayahuaska Workshops (Dietar), we offer a stimulating, responsible and safe experience based on the Ritual Ceremony of Ayahuaska.
The workshop is for those who are looking for an authentic way to pursue their personal quest. During the workshops, we will have Ayahuaska sessions in a sacred ritual context for profound self exploration and personal integration.
