Join the New York Shamanic Circle at Jivamukti Yoga School for a special New Year Visioning Ceremony on the auspicious, longest night of the year- the Winter Solstice. On this sacred night, we will cleanse old energies no longer needed, bring in the light of our souls to guide us during the dark cold days of Winter and welcome back Taita Inti, Father Sun with prayers.

The traditional Guayusa ceremony is a vision quest that challenges your inner warrior, and your sense of space, time and direction, as you step into the mystery of Dreamtime. We will be singing, chanting moving and weaving a powerful vision for the world, community and our own individual future.

Guayusa–is not hallucinating–it is similar to yerba maté, is a medicinal plant that contains caffeine without the rough edges, and it’s filled with healthy antioxidants. It also has theobromine, found in chocolate, and L-theanine, found in green tea. You will feel fully alive. Guayusa activates the brain, not allowing it to go deep into theta/delta states (below the level of the conscious mind), which allows you to “see” your visions.
