Shamanic Ayahuasca Workshops

Featured in National Geographic Adventure Magazine, on the National Geographic Channel and in The New York Times

A shamanic workshop at Blue Morpho is designed to help participants achieve personal and spiritual transformation through Amazonian shamanism, mystical exploration, and personal experience. Our workshops incorporate the traditional use of the sacred visionary plant medicine ayahuasca in conjunction with universal spirituality and modern disciplines of shamanism. We focus on bridging the gap between Western cultures and these ancient practices to offer an experience that truly impacts the entirety of your life.

Ceremonies and workshop activities address all aspects of your being as a single, holistic expression. The experience both generates and supports total life transformation and improvement. Ayahuasca is immersed in a longstanding Amazonian tradition of plant-based healing and medicine practice. As part of Blue Morpho's unique approach, the practices of Amazonian shamanism are wielded to support you on your journey towards living a life filled with more love, beauty, joy and compassion. Where healing is just the beginning, this is an experience that transforms the entirety of who you are.

Your Shamanic Journey of Personal Transformation

The focus of our work is on your transformation and evolution. Ayahuasca medicine is a very powerful modality for creating spaces where this evolution can take place. Our job on this journey is to 100% support and guide your process the whole way through. Everyone comes to Blue Morpho and to ayahuasca with a unique set of reasons and intentions. Our shamanic workshops are created to help facilitate and bring resolution to your reasons for embarking on this journey. Incorporating a number of shamanic and transformational tools, together we explore the mystical reality of shamanism, spirit, self, plant medicine, consciousness, transformation, and ultimately your life.

Shamanic Activities at Blue Morpho

Traditional Ayahuasca Ceremonies: Led by Master Shaman Don Alberto Torres Davila and the Blue Morpho Shamans. Experience the mystery and transformational power of sacred traditional rituals and plant medicines. The ayahuasca ceremony will help you release, purge, purify and learn through direct personal experience of Spirit, medicine and universal wisdom.

Discussion and Identification of Medicinal Plants: Learn about the amazing properties of the indigenous flora. The Amazon is home to thousands of medicinal plants used by the locals to cure many illnesses ranging from headaches to cancer. As part of the ayahuasca cooking process, we will learn about the medicinal plants that go into the ayahuasca brew.

Personal Shamanic Healing: Each person receives the shamanic attention they need, both in and out of ceremony. We perform personal healing sessions (called venteadas) for each guest and also offer one-on-one time with the shamans throughout the week. Help and support are available to you the entire workshop.

Shamanic Journey and Skill Practice: As part of the ayahuasca ceremonies, explore shamanic journeying into the spirit world to connect with spirit guides, plant spirits, guardian angels, and power animals. Learn how to work with spirits in everyday life to harness their healing and teaching power, turning ordinary life into something magical. You can also take part in our video courses during the day to learn shamanic skills that can be applied both in and out of ceremony.

Discussion of Universal Spirituality: Universal spiritual understanding brings resolution to psychological, emotional and spiritual challenges. As you awaken to your universal truth, the very understanding of your universe is redefined. These discussions and realizations help you to gain deeper knowledge of the powerful energetic changes you are experiencing.

Soul Retrievals: A traditional shamanic technique that reconnects lost or separated spirit parts. It restores the balance of the subtle energetic body (spirit) as past traumas are released and the separated parts are healed and returned home, replenishing the soul and life forces. Soul retrievals are performed during ayahuasca ceremonies.

Shamanic Dieting: On select workshops, shamanic dietas are offered. Traditionally used as the means of apprenticing in the jungle, a shamanic dieta can help provide deep personal healing, learning, and profound life transformation. Click here to learn more about the shamanic dieta.

Integration Practices: Explore a variety of integration practices to enhance not only your time on the workshop, but to support your continued learning and evolving at home.
