San Pedro Medicine & Astrology Shamanic Workshop - February 7, 2017
- Blue Morpho San Pedro (Huachuma) Center at Willka T'ika Lodge
- Urubamba, Cusco, Peru
- Feb 7, 2017 - Feb 12, 2017 (6 days)
The focus of Blue Morpho’s San Pedro workshops are on your personal and spiritual transformation and evolution. The medicine spaces we create and journey to together are very powerful and an effective means for creating lasting change, experiencing evolutionary learning, and receiving shamanic healing in a setting of support, love and harmony. San Pedro opens the gateways to discovery and wholeness so that, in conjunction with 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.
A History of San Pedro
San Pedro, also known as Huachuma, is a sacred cactus native to Peru and one of the main healing plants of the Andean mountain and coastal traditions. Its use dates back several thousands of years and has been associated with a variety of Peru’s mystical cultures of antiquity. Healing and shamanic methods oriented around Huachuma’s capacity as a sacred teacher plant have perpetuated in the region continuously, even as external influence from the Colonial period has taken root.
The ceremonial practices and traditions incorporating Huachuma that we see today exemplify the strength and capacity of the local shamanism to evolve and adapt to new environments and foreign influences as it maintains its place as a powerful healing tool and agent of transformation in today’s global shamanic climate.
Blue Morpho’s San Pedro workshops are designed to harness this capacity of change to engender deep personal and spiritual transformation. We combine our 13+ years of shamanic distinction in traditional methods with our innovative and effective approach enlisting modern shamanic disciplines and universal spiritual wisdom to create powerful ceremonial spaces of healing, change, transformation, exploration and learning. The visionary cactus Huachuma brings a potent addition to Blue Morpho’s sacred plant work, adding depth, dimension, tradition and new medicine forms to offer you a genuine space to grow and blossom into who you truly are.
The medicine of this sacred plant has an elegant balance of power and grace, compassion joined by stern lessons, with a softness yet endurance that continues to persist, even days after the ceremonies conclude. The medicine space is totally engrossing yet not overwhelming. With a simultaneous earthy, grounding quality matched with a cosmic, elevating refinement, this sacred cactus is an incredible tool for exploring the meeting point of your humanity and divinity, body and spirit.
The Astrology of Relationships
This transformational journey unites the time-tested wisdom of Astrology with the ancient Andean medicine of San Pedro to create a unique experience of personal evolution, transformation and illumination.
Myriad cultures around the world have for thousands of years recognized and harnessed the connection between the movements of the heavenly bodies — Sun, Moon and planets — and their own lives on Earth. They have used this knowledge and wisdom as an aid to a clearer understanding of their lives, environments, and themselves. In this tour, held in one of the great power centers of the Incan world, you will be guided on a journey of self-knowledge, cosmic exploration, and transformation by a master shaman and a professional astrologer. The focus of this week is on the Astrology of Relationships. We will look at how to identify key themes around relationships in your own natal chart, including which signs you are best suited to. We will also discuss how to compare two people’s charts in order to determine the level of compatibility, as well as the causes of friction / tension and how best these can be resolved. Many example charts will be used throughout the workshop to show how the astrology works in practice.
The workshop will include daily astrological discussions, as well as 4 San Pedro ceremonies guided by Malcolm Rossiter, which will focus particularly on helping us to improve our relationships and deepen the connection with our loved ones.
No prior knowledge of astrology is required.
