Shipibo Elder – Donna Juanita comes to Butterfly Circles

3-4-5 december 2018

“I still remember my grandmother singing and soothing me when I was a child with her beautiful healing Ikaros. Now as a Mother and Grandmother myself I feel happy and proud to be able to continue to share these healings with my children and grandchildren using the same beautiful Ikaros”.

“In the hands of women there is tenderness, there is strength, there is love,
there is the great medicine, which she receives through the blessing of
Sacha Mama, our Mother Jungle, who nightly teaches us the healing Ikaros”

When she was a child Doña Juanita was chosen to take part in the ceremonies and to learn from the ancient, wise Shipibo-Conibo healers, a native group from the Amazon Rainforest of Peru. This extraordinary group are named ‘the astral travelers’. Since their first encounters with civilization, they have shared with the world their mysterious and sacred geometric designs. They paint them onto their faces, their bodies, their vessels and also on their clothing.

A true spiritual art that can only be visioned by the Spiritual Masters during intense ceremonies. It allows everyone who receives and uses it to enter into a deep spiritual journey, an indispensable purifying process for the increase of our life energy.

Doña Juanita will leave her medicine garden in the Amazon for the first time ever to make a journey through Europe. She will share all the ceremonies and healings that she performs with great tenderness through her loving Ikaros, her curative songs, which she learned as a child. She will also hold womens circles, a sacred time to create the traditional Shipibo-Konibo paintings, (the mysterious, sacred geometric lines, designs and forms that are received during her ceremonies.

According to the Shipibo-Conibo Masters (Amazon native group) the impurity of our Astral Body can directly influence our traumas, and this is reflected in our character, feelings, emotions and actions and can often lead to a negative chain of fear, feelings of rejection, guilt, anger and especially to dis-ease (it’s no coincidence they are called diseases).

In this Ceremonial Workshop Doña Juanita will share her extraordinary teachings on the purification of the Astral Body. It will be a day filled with healing through her Ikaros (sacred songs). She will also paint the faces and bodies of the participants, using a natural paint which has been used by the Amazonian natives for thousands of years and which allows us to enter a wonderful state of harmonious spiritual restoration both with nature and with the universe that surrounds us. This is a non-permanent, temporary ‘paint’. There will be also a time where participants will be part of individual and group cleansing dances under the guidance of the ceremonial songs of Doña Juanita.
