This is an affiliation with the Shamanism Without Borders program as run by the Society for Shamanic Practice. This is a recorded ceremony of a Shamanism Without Borders call that we have completed in the past. If you’re interested in viewing the archives, click below.
This is an online ceremonial event dedicated towards the Amazon rainforest. A lot of atrocities have been happening in South America, and it is bringing to light the awareness of how much we need to be protecting and advocating for our environment.
Join us for an hour of prayer as we lead us through a drum guided healing ceremony to help us connect with the rainforest within ourselves. Captivated by some of the stories of the chaos, deforestation, dam breaks, and taking of indigenous lands – there was a strong need for action. When Journeying to the Spirits of the Land to ask for what they needed in support, the mighty Amazon Rainforest stepped forward and asked for the humans to remember how to breathe.
It has been estimated that the deforestation of the Amazon Rainforest has slowed in recent years, but 20% of the rainforest has been cleared within the past 30 years. Thats 770,000km, which is larger then the state of Texas. Within the rainforest live the people who still caretake and live in partnership with the land. There are beautiful medicines that have yet to be uncovered. Which means that there are beautiful medicines we have not uncovered within ourselves as individuals.
In a shamanic cosmology, there is a common belief that stretches across a vast majority of First Nations people’s. The belief that we are all one. If we do harm to another person or being, we harm ourselves. The rainforest is helping us to reconnect to the parts of ourselves we have destroyed. We will release grief, and make room in our lungs for us to breathe deeply again.
