Hi Spirit Seekers,
In the tapestry of spiritual traditions, shamanism stands out for its deep-rooted practices that bridge the physical and spiritual realms. Among these practices, psychopomp work—derived from the Greek words "psycho" (soul) and "pompos" (guide)—is one of the most profound.
At its essence, psychopomp work involves guiding the souls of the deceased to the afterlife, ensuring a smooth transition and healing for both the departed and the living left behind. Shamans, as soul guides, undertake this sacred responsibility with utmost reverence. It's believed that some souls become lost or trapped due to trauma, unfinished business, or sudden death. The shaman, equipped with ancestral knowledge and aided by spirit allies, endeavors to help these souls find their way to the afterlife.
But Psychopomp isn't merely a ritual for the dead. For the living, engaging in psychopomp practices can bring solace, closure, and understanding, mending the tears in the fabric of grief. It's a testament to the interconnectedness of all things—a reminder that even in death, there's a continuity of the spirit.
In today's world, where many feel detached from spiritual traditions, shamanic psychopomp work stands as a beacon of hope and healing. It serves as a bridge between worlds, illuminating the eternal dance of birth, life, death, and rebirth.
In our upcoming ShamanPortal Wisdom Webinar, Itzhak Beery - Founder of ShamanPortal, Author and Shamanic Teacher - will take the participants on a deep dive into the twilight zone and help them to engage with Psychopomp work. This webinar is not for beginners, a good knowledge of Shamanic Journeying is required. For further information please click on the image below.

|Join me in our next refresh class. We will delve deeper in the art of ancient shamanic palm reading. Yes. Many believe it is only the domain of gypsies. However numerous cultures use it extensively. I learned from the Kichwa, and the Tsachila, and from the most amazing Richard Unger;-)|

|The Yachak–Shaman, also known as the "Birdman" in the Kichwa tradition of the High Andes of Ecuador, holds spiritual beliefs that they serve as intermediaries between the earthly and etheric worlds. In shamanic cultures, birds are known as messengers bridging the human and spiritual realms, bringing essential knowledge otherwise cannot be obtained, from the spirit allies, for healing. The Yachak wears a crown of colorful feathers during ceremonies and has the ability to shapeshift, connecting with birds for their guidance and protection. Join our two-day webinar to discover your ability to shapeshift into the Andes condor, connect with spirit and bring useful information for yourself and others.|

(For all Europeans- In English with Italian translation). In a world that can feel chaotic and disheartening, many of us are left wondering what is going on and where humanity stands. The ancient Andean prophecy of the Condor and the Eagle might offer us a hopeful perspective, reminding us that our world is going through a period of conscious realignment. The prophecy describes a time when the Condor, the symbol of South American indigenous wisdom and Earth-honoring living, and the Eagle, the symbol of Western industrial society, will fly together in harmony, peace, and cooperation. It symbolizes the sacred balance between the masculine, logical technology of the West and the heart-centered, intuitive spiritual connection with nature.

|Arley Payaguaje is only 24. So far, he has researched, seeded, planted, cultivated, and distributed over 10,000 Amazonian fruit-bearing trees to his Siekopai community around the Aguarico River territory. All grown on the fertile land surrounding his family's modest stilts wooden house. Encouraged, he plans on seeding and planting 15,000 more while researching ways to improve harvest production and even bring back native trees and heirloom seeds from other communities and Peru, their ancestral land.|
Reforesting the Amazon with native fruit-bearing trees supports both sustainable economic development and the preservation of the forest's biodiversity. Supporting my Siekopai-Secoya friend Arley's project (see below) helps protect the Amazon and its ecosystem from the destructive impact of big corporations, and give them a chance of survival.
