Have you yearned to discover how to live a healthy and prosperous life during times of strife and imbalance? Do you know how to detect, and protect yourself from, negative energies? Join Itzhak Beery, a leading shamanic teacher, healer, speaker, community activist and author, for a week dedicated to exploring the shamanic worldview and cosmology while learning shamanic healing concepts and methods.
This workshop will explore journeying for knowledge and visions into the unseen spirit world. For over 21 years, Itzhak apprenticed with two powerful teachers from two indigenous tribes — the Ure-e-wau-wau (People of the Stars) and Andean Quechua traditions. Itzhak bridges the spiritual and practical wisdom entrusted to him by his indigenous teachers with a powerful contemporary approach relevant to our stressful and unbalanced modern times.
Supported and enriched by the healing and sacred space of the Feathered Pipe Ranch, your time with Itzhak will help you incorporate shamanism into your daily practice and blend it with your existing repertoire of healing practices. The serene, nature-drenched Big Sky setting — and the nutritious, healthy, and delicious meals that Feathered Pipe is famous for — offer an ideal setting for all your senses to make it easy to drop fully and comfortably into your shamanic studies experience.
This very special week will include:
— Nature walks
— Yara & Tupana: teaching of the rainforest Gods
— Andes cosmology
— Tacuma needles: a unique Amazonian healing and diagnostic technique to stimulate and activate the nervous system
— Candle and egg reading: a traditional Andes diagnostic technique for healing
— Akuras diagnostics: techniques to locate entities
— Protection techniques
— Amazonian moral stories & teachings
— Fire ceremony
— Herbal bath cleansing ceremony
— Sunrise movement to invigorate the body and reconnect to Mother Earth and Father Sun.
— Songs and dances of the Amazon and Andes
Your time with Itzhak may also optionally incorporate a guayusa dream tea ceremony at a beautiful cave located north of the Feathered Pipe Ranch a cave. No previous experience of journeying into non-ordinary states is required.
VACATION TIP: Extend your time in peace and beauty while savoring Western hospitality by exploring the great West’s national park treasures either before or after your Feathered Pipe experience with Itzhak. Glacier National Park is a scenic 3.5 hour drive north and west of the Ranch, while Yellowstone is just a 4.5 hours drive south and east of the Ranch through some of the prettiest Western territory you’ll ever see.
