We offer to take part in the ceremony with Amazon medicine kambô as preparation for the holotropic breathwork- details below.
Holotropic Breathwork™ is an self-experiencing method of personal development. It is created from shamanic traditions and modern depth and transpersonal psychology. The method is based on focusing on a simple breathing technique in combination with evocative music in a safe and supporting environment. This setting enables experiences of unusual and expanded states of consciouness through which we can get deeper understanding of our psyche. We might face and transform roots of emotionally challenging situations in our daily lives and and psychosomatic troubles. We can get in contact with the transpersonal level of our psyche and with our own inner healing capacities.
The holotropic breathwork seminar will begin with a preparatory circle on Thursday evening from 20:00, on Friday and Saturday there will be four breathing processes - twice as actively breathing, twice as so-called sitting, there will be a wide space for the accompanying program, art therapy expression of experience, sharing and integration of experience. On Sunday we will end between 12:00 - 13:00.
The four-day seminar format offers space and time for a deep journey and integration of experience. The environment of the family hotel in rural style at a quiet place in a beautiful natural environment, offers support in the journey from the outside world to our inner landscapes, to the depths of our soul and beyond. We recommend to all who want to meet with themselves and the method of Holotropic Breathwork® really intensively.
Price of the seminar: lectureship 3.250 CZK (125 EURO), first breathers 3.500 CZK (135 EURO), food and housing 2.850 CZK (110 EURO) - full board
SACRED MEDICINE FROM THE AMAZON
Kambô treatment is a traditional healing method, used by many tribes of the upper Amazon rainforest for millennia. The skin secretion of the giant monkey tree frog (lat. Phyllomedusa bicolor) is introduced through skin into the lymphatic system, where it builds up its cleansing and holistic healing effects. Kambô is one of the most powerful natural ways to strengthen the human immune system and to release toxins from body. The frog connects us to our heart and our inner wisdom. It can bring awareness to causes of our emotional conflicts and can show us our destructive thinking- and behavior- patterns. When we work regularly with kambô medicine, our blockages will be systematically removed. It supports us in finding balance and connects us to the natural flow of life.
APPLICATION AND EFFECTS
Kambô is administered by indigenous tribes mainly:
• before hunting (to increase speed and endurance)
• as medical drug (against inflammation, infections, yellow fever, Malaria, snake bites, ...)
• to remove "Panema" (a word that describes a series of negative situations and emotions. Under Panema, you experience “bad luck”. Negative thoughts and sadness spread, and life seems to be against you. It feels like being surrounded by a dark cloud.)
In the mid-eighties, the first scientific laboratory tests of the kambô secretion were carried out by the Italian pharmacologist Vittorio Erspamer (the discoverer of the neurotransmitter serotonin). He succeeded in identifying some of the peptides wich are responsible for the positive effects on human organism. Since then, several pharmaceutical companies have been trying to reveal the secret of the frog. Intensive research has already been undertaken to isolate and synthesize individual peptides. There are now over 70 patents on kambô-based ingredients. Peptides are becoming increasingly important in the medical field, due to their high specificity and biological activity. Unlike other pharmaceutical ingredients, they can penetrate deeper into the tissues and their metabolic degradation products are usually non-toxic. Characteristics of the peptides contained in kambô cover a wide range of possible applications: Treatment of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease, inflammation, depression, migraine, lyme disease, rheumatism, circulatory disorders, vascular insufficiency, organ diseases, skin diseases, problems with fertility in women and men, AIDS, hepatitis, cancer, etc. Although it seems that kambô may be a panacea, it is necessary to point out that kambô does not work for everyone in the same way. The result of a treatment can vary greatly from person to person. The effect may vary each time and also depends on the treatment interval and integration. Points of application -"gates" - will remain visible Although many people report extremely positive changes after the first treatment, it is generally seen that deeper and deeper levels are being treated as kambô is repeatedly administered over a period of time. Kambô is often referred as "frog poison", but no toxic substance has been be detected in the secretion of the giant monkey tree frog so far. Kambô contains no psychedelic components and does not cause hallucinations.
When we work with kambô , it's not like we're in an exclusively passive attitude, as we may be used to as a patient treated with conventional medicine. Rather, we can positively influence the process and a successful integration. A deep introspection into the need behind the desire to experience kambô brings us into contact with deeper levels in ourselves and prepares us for the ceremony in a supportive way. We can increase the synergetic effects when we meet kambô with an open attitude, when we allow ourselves to let go and to be carried through the process with trust.
• Do not to eat solid food (or soups and smoothies) for 10 hours beforehand. Drink only water or light herbal teas without sweeteners.
• On the days (2-3) before treatment, eat only light and fresh food. Avoid Industrially processed products, sugar and fat.
• Do not drink excessive amounts of liquid prior to the kambô treatment.
• Do not consume alcohol or other substances for at least 24-48 hours before or after the kambô treatment.
We will start with an introductory talk. Then we focus on your intention for this kambô treatment. Two liters of water needs to be drunk then. In the most cases between 3 and five small (about 3-4 mm in diameter) gates will be burned with a glowing piece of vine on the skin of the upper arm. Most people describe this process as not, or little painful, because only the uppermost skin layer is affected. Then the kambô secretion, shaped into small globules, is applied to these gates and enters the lymphatic system from where it can unfold its effect. For initial treatments, only a single gate is wetted with Kambô at the begin, and the reaction will be
awaited. Afterward the secretion is applied to the remaining gates to get the full effect. The following cleaning process begins immediately and is usually accompanied by a heat wave that flows through the upper body into the head. After that, nausea sets in and the body's toxins will be purged out with the previously drunk water. Purification can take place on the physical - as well as on the emotional and the energetic level. In
addition to purging, tremors and heavy sweating is shown very often, sometimes the body wants to empty through the intestine. It may be that intense emotions such as grief, aggression or joyful feelings come up. Kambô acts very quickly and intensely. The unpleasant phase is usually over after 20-40 minutes. When the purging is complete, you will recover immediately. The kambô secretion is then washed off the skin with a wet paper towel and the affected areas are treated with "Sangre de Drago", the sap of the dragon's blood tree. It covers the gates with a latex-like film and supports wound healing. The healing time of gates depends on skin type and -color. Many people feel the need to rest then. After this approximately half-hour rest you feel revitalized and relaxed. Sometimes the positive effect of kambô is immediately felt, usually the full effect unfolds in the next days. It is advisable not to have any schedules after the session as in some cases one may like to have time for for a while.
