Dream Tea Ceremony with Itzhak Beery Presented by Housing Works
December 11 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm EST$45.00
Challenge your inner shamanic warrior, your sense of space, time and direction as you step in into the magic of dreamtime. Join us to honor the Amazonian Guayusa dream-tea spirit with a special traditional ceremony where we sip the sacred tea and then go into a deep meditative silence –in complete darkness– to encounter and communicate with our spirit guides to enable us to bring new visions and awareness for our lives. As it happens in indigenous cultures around the world, we will gather in a dark cave to explore the shamanic power of darkness, perception and the unknown, to engage in a practice that allows the six senses to magnify the connection to the unseen world and built in intuition.
Please bring your own yoga mat. And if you’d like, your own eye mask and meditation pillow for comfort.
Itzhak Beery, the author of The Gift of Shamanism, bridges the indigenous shamanic traditions his teachers entrusted in him with a contemporary shamanic approach relevant to our modern life. Born in Israel he is a New York-based practitioner who conducts shamanic healing ceremonies, and teaches seminars internationally and co-lead trips to Ecuador and Brazil’s Amazon. Itzhak apprenticed intensively and initiated by don Jose Joaquin Diaz Pineda an Ecuadorian Quechua Yachak from Iluman, into his family tradition and into the Sacred 24 Yachaks Circle of Imbabura. He was also initiated by Shoré a North Amazonian Pagé in Brazil. He studied with and assisted Ipupiara Makunaiman, a Brazilian Amazonian Pagé from the Uru-eu-wau-wau tribe for 12 years until his passing, and with his wife Cliecha, Peruvian Curandera, and also with other indigenous and contemporary elders and shamans from around the world.
