Itzhak Beery

Use shamanic healing to enter the invisible world.

Many of us, because of cultural intimidation, trauma, and abuse learn to shut down our internal fire. We learn to settle for mediocrity, depression, and sadness.

In this workshop, we will ignite the Sacred Nina, the spark of creativity, passion, and joy in our lives.

What is Nina?

Nina in Quechua, the Inca language, is the Sacred Fire that resides in the lower part of our body. It is the furnace that burns inside ourselves and is associated with creativity, vitality, life-giving energy, internal power, passion, and sexual energy.

There is no word for sex, in Quechua. Two people who engage in the act of sharing the Nina are merging the two most powerful life forces of the universal energy, those of Tata Inti (Father Sun), and that of Pachamama (Mother Earth) magma core, in a dance of creation.

The Workshop

In this evening we will celebrate the power of the Sacred Nina. Using indigenous shamanic techniques we will journey to connect with Nina’s spirit and power individually and in pairs.

We will be giving offerings and sacrifices to Nina in a fire ceremony (using a candle). Through movement and dance, we will shake ourselves from obstacles and integrate Nina’s power into our bodies and lives again.

You will get in touch with your dark side by igniting Nina, the spark that resides in your own body and soul.

We will uncover and remember the light within us.

We will celebrate joy and happiness with a release from darkness into the magic of light.

You will learn to:

  • Through shamanic journeying with power animals and other entities we will connect with Nina’s spirit and power, working individually, in pairs, and as a community.
  • There will be offerings and sacrifices to Nina in fire ceremonies.
  • We will learn through candle readings to diagnose Nina’s presence in our partner’s body and learn healing techniques.
  • With movement, dance and chants we will shake ourselves from our own obstacles and integrate Nina’s power into our bodies and lives again.
  • We will face our dark side by igniting Nina and gain a spiritual vision for our lives.
  • Come join us to meet your Nina and live life with passion.
