|January 22, 2024 Newsletter Update
Be an Agent of Change!
As we enter 2024, we face critical challenges that threaten our existence – political, social, and environmental crises. It's time to seek new ways of living and healing, and I've found inspiration in the indigenous wisdom of the Amazon and Andes. These communities, standing bravely against global threats, offer us a powerful message: we need to transform the way we live, not just for ourselves, but for the planet.
I invite you to join me in learning from their rich traditions and practices. Their wisdom is not just ancient lore; it's a crucial key to our collective future. Together, we can honor their knowledge and integrate it into our lives for the betterment of our families, communities, and the world.
Let's embrace 2024 as a year of personal growth and global healing, guided by the timeless teachings of those who have long cherished and protected our Earth.

הכשרה שמאנית למטפלים ומרפאים

|Shamanic palm reading is an ancient practice that interprets the lines, skin condition, texture and colour of the palms as well as the shape and length of the fingers and nails. It reveals much about our life purpose and key personality traits. Discover the art in this 3-part online workshop.
Those who understand the essentials of shamanic palm reading can gain important insights for themselves, and can also guide others on their path of self-knowledge and healing. It is one of the most important diagnostic and counselling techniques that the shamans of the Andes use to help their clients navigate emotional difficulties and decision-making.
|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.
|To the Kichwa tribe of the High Andes, the Birdman is a powerful healer, mediating between heaven and earth. Their vibrant feather crown connects them with the ethereal energy of the birds. You'll soar in the flight path of the Birdman in this in-person weekend workshop with renowned shaman Itzhak Beery.
|Learn how to embrace their mystical and physical essences in your daily life. In this highly experiential workshop, we'll explore our reconnection with these ancient mythological forces through sound, dance, and movement aided by shamanic visioning. This experience aims to empower you to awaken the masculine and feminine energies within you, fostering harmony. Enhance your creativity and zest for life.
|Join Itzhak Beery to learn shamanic diagnostic and healing practices for mind, body, and soul in this intensive two-part livestream workshop.
During the two classes of this workshop, we will be working with spirit guides for shamanic healing of emotional, physical, and spiritual maladies.

At Amaroo Sanctuary in Mindo’s Cloud Forest, Ecuador
Shaman Portal warmly invites you on a journey filled with spiritual, mystical, and healing experiences in the breathtaking Andes of Ecuador.

|In the tradition of shamanic wisdom sharing, let me share with you a few true stories; I promise they are all authentic, although I do not use real names or locations. They are a touching reminder of the clash between different perspectives and the importance of holding judgment and jealousy… and instead holding respect, and acceptance of the traditions and beliefs of others. My journey is no different. Since 1995 it has taught me invaluable lessons about humility, acceptance, cultural sensitivity and the poisons of the ‘rightness right’ (those who pursue rightness), especially when it comes to the academic world and written traditions which is often another colonialist superior mindset of thinking and behaving that can often come with an attitude of moral superiority and an air of grander virtue.
|I've engaged with indigenous peoples in many countries since 1995, some of whom have initiated me into their traditions. Sharing their wisdom with students worldwide, I was stunned by some who claim that Jews aren't indigenous and are labeled as white European impostors and colonialists.
|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.
