SACRED FIRE WISDOM TALK
Erika will present a talk focused on Indigenous wisdom, traditions and ceremonies of the Americas, sacred altars, ancestral lineage, toxic thoughts and energies and healing practices. We will discuss the origins of dis-ease in our physical, mental/emotional and spiritual bodies, and the power of intention & prayer as you receive simple healing exercises. You will be reminded that you are your greatest healer, doctor and medicine.
TOBACCO MASTER PLANT TEACHER – TALK & CEREMONY
An additional short talk focused on sacred master plant medicines, and specifically the plant of the tobacco Nicotiana Rustica (Mapacho) is also a part of our time together. Native to the Americas along with its sister plant medicines of ayahuasca, peyote and San Pedro, tobacco has been cultivated there for 5,000 to 8,000 years.
Tobacco is one of the most powerful sacred plant medicines in existence, which is also why it is also the most abused in the planet. This is why the tobacco plant should only be used with healing intention, and with deep prayer and respect for this sacred plant spirit.
This talk will be followed by a sacred liquid tobacco ceremony in the South American tradition, where participants are given the opportunity to work directly with the tobacco medicine in a sacred manner for your healing. This ceremony will offer you the opportunity to cleanse, heal, remove and release any blockages, old unhealthy patterns, memories and traumas, as well as any discordant & destructive energies.
The tobacco plant offers clarity, balance and grounding as it helps to re-align your body, mind & spirit, and assists in clearing and strengthening your connection to your highest authentic self.
This ceremony is offered to complement the talk, but you can decide whether or not to participate once you have heard the talk and ceremony instructions. This is a relatively short ceremony, and you will be fine to drive and travel shortly afterwards.
For those who are non-smokers, it will be ingested through the nasal passages in liquid form, and for those who have quit smoking, as well as everyone else, you are reminded that this is your opportunity to work with the sacred tobacco in a sacred manner.
It Is not recommended for those with a active sinus infection, pregnancy, and/or a serious allergy to tobacco, or any other plants in the nightshade family, such as eggplant, tomato, potato and peppers. This does not necessarily mean you cannot participate, but we suggest you talk to Erika beforehand.
This offers the opportunity to cleanse, heal, remove and release any blockages, discordant and destructive energies.
This is an incredibly intimate ceremony, please email Alex@themandrake.com for further details and to reserve your place.
