TALK TITLE: Mestizo and Indigenous Ayahuasca Shamanism

Regardless of the mixed ethnicities prevalent throughout the Peruvian Amazon, the prehistoric traditions and indigenous wisdom held and practiced by those who have been raised to live and survive in the jungle have not changed. In the Peruvian Amazon, the primary shamanic practice, whether it be with the indigenous Shipibo Indians or mestizos, is centered around the Ayahuasca Vine, which is referred to as the "Mother of the Plants". In both mestizo and Shipibo traditions, "Mother Ayahuasca" works with a multitude of other teacher plants, each with their own unique healing properties. This lecture will explore the healing plants and shamanic healing practices prevalent throughout that part of the Amazon and how it applies to modern day spiritual seekers.


Matt (Mateo) Pallamary is an award winning writer, musician, and sound healer who has been studying shamanism all of his life and incorporates shamanic practices into his daily life as well as into his writing and teaching. His historical novel of first contact between shamans and Jesuits in 18th century South America, titled, Land Without Evil received rave reviews along with a San Diego Book Award. It was also adapted into a stage show, the making of which was the subject of a PBS series that garnered an EMMY nomination.
