Join Itzhak Beery at the College in a powerful shamanic evening to explore the dimensions of dreamtime and altered states with ceremonial Guayusa tea. This in-person event takes you on a magnificent vision quest that challenges your sense of space, time, and direction as you enter the night mystery.

In this in-person evening at the College, we honour the Guayusa tree's spirit with chants, songs and music. As we sip the sacred tea, we enter a deep meditative silence. We will encounter and communicate with our spirit guides and other spirits, enabling us to bring new visions and awareness into our lives.

The Amazonian Kichwa of Ecuador believe that the Guayusa plant taught humans how to dream. It is also called 'The Night Watchman' as it sharpens the hunter's instincts, keeps focused energy, and has night vision and awareness. Kichwa families drink gourds of Guayusa around the communal fire from dawn until sunrise to create a tribal bond and rejuvenate their spirits and bodies. During this time, they share their night's dreams as the shaman interprets them so they can plan the day's course of action. This is also when the elders teach the youth about ancestral myths, hunting practices, and social ethics.

Guayusa, similar to yerba maté or green tea, is a medicinal plant that contains caffeine (although without the jittery edges) and is filled with healthy antioxidants. It also has theobromine, found in chocolate, and L-theanine, found in green tea. After drinking Guayusa, you will feel fully alive. 

This evening's experience is not hallucinating; it simply activates the brain, allowing it to go deep into theta/delta states (below the level of the conscious mind), which will enable you to 'see' your vision.
