About The Event
The shamanic journey is an old way of going within to receive visions, similar to a waking dream state. The messages and experiences connect us with our spirit guides and ancestors who know the way, and are there to assist us.

It helps to gently stimulate the pineal gland and calm the nervous system while nurturing the body high amounts of l-theanine and theobromin. We will drink the tea in a beautiful ceremonial way.

More about Guayusa
Guayusa is a plant from Ecuador and is sometimes called the ‘Dream Tea’. Botanically, it is related to Yerba Maté. It provides focused energy while relaxing the mind, the optimal state for seeing visions and receiving messages, similar to a waking dream state. It is safe, legal, and completely non-psychotropic, and is becoming a significant export crop providing sustainable income for traditional communities. The tea used in this ceremony comes directly from growers in Ecuador selling at roadside markets on a recent trip there. Guayusa is used casually, for energy, but ceremonial preparation brings out more strength.
Traditionally, Guayusa has been used in ceremonies for at least 2000 years. Different tribes use the tea differently, but its commonly referred to as the dream tea. This ceremony is a contemporary adaptation of traditional use. Come explore your inner landscape, relax into the dreamtime, for assistance and healing from the spirit world. Guayusa tea is also very high in antioxidants, L-theanine, and theobromin, the components that make green tea and cacao so good for the mind and body.
Drinking the tea is recommended but not required to receive the benefits of the journey. You can choose how much you want to drink. No experience required.
