Who is this training for
This training is for those who seek healing, self empowerment and spiritual teaching. This teaching starts from the moment in which you express interest in joining it.
The shaman is a spiritual teacher, a representative from the spiritual world. He will teach you whatever it is necessary and by whatever means necessary the lessons your soul require.
This retreat is not something you buy, like a fridge from Walmart or Aldi and you dictate the terms of how things will be done during and prior to the training. The methods are mostly non conventional and lack of human logic and are purely driven by the Divine inspiration the shaman receives.
If you do not treat the shaman with respect and humbleness there is a great chance you will not get on with the shaman and you will waste an opportunity to learn and heal.
Most people suffer from anxiety and impatience, lack of love and tolerance. This does not give yo the right to rush things or demand quicker service.. Each step is a preparation for the next one, we have the tools to heal you.
The process of the healing and teaching is on a cosmic time and order, such as planets go around the Sun and the Sun goes around other bigger stars there is an order and constant movement. This takes a very long time so do not expect any instant results.
Patience, compassion, humbleness are the qualities necessary to access the spiritual world with shaman's help. If you do not posses those traits the shaman will teach you and provide you with tools to start learning.
If you don't behave according to the shaman's guidelines and instruction you will be asked to leave the retreat space without any money back.
If you are looking for a DMT experience or trying to experience something different like a parachute jump this retreat is not for you. This retreat is also not for you if you used weed / grass in the last 6 months. You need to undergo a special cleanse before you join a ceremony.
In short if you are serious, disciplined enough to follow the shamans instruction and are able with an open heart to the retreat to learn and receive whatever you are ready to receive than send us your short application.
Please apply only if you can comfortably pay for the retreat.
No discounts, nor free participation is offered.
There are of course cheaper retreats than ours, we are asking a fair price for what we offer.
We work exclusively in places and venues of special beauty and abundance and that carry a special Earth, Cosmic and Divine energies, so you can incorporate that during your stay and 'take it with you'. We also work exclusively with small groups of carefully selected serious students/participants.
Leading shaman: Thomas Aquila Bianca
To apply to participate please send a note about yourself, your spiritual practice to-date and the motivation behind doing this retreat. Also enclose a photo of yourself where your eyes are visible and/or link your facebook account.
The shaman will decide whether he is interested in inviting you to the retreat and you will have a personal interview with the shaman via skype before you join the retreat. For this interview the shaman charges $150 in advance.
After the Ceremony
After a ceremony or retreat where the teacher plants (Tobacco, Ayahuasca, San Pedro, Peyote, etc.) are used it is essential for you to set aside time to reflect on the experience.If possible, allow yourself at least 3 days to reintegrate what you have experienced into your day-to-day life. You are likely to be very sensitive and open after your journey, so be gentle with yourself. Do your best to avoid stress and create a healing, quiet space where you can get plenty of rest, good sleep, healthy food and time in nature.
