liberation in kali yuga

The benevolence of Kali is truly sublime. To understand it will make you cry tears of joy and gratitude at her feet. Far from any intent to save humanity, this terrific goddess offers liberation from the human condition itself. That, and only that, is what liberation means in Kali Yuga. Her Game subsumes all others because with every hand you win, there is no one left to play.

edenic states azores

Within of all of exists latently the capacity to sustainably experience ecstatic states of connection and knowing. In fact this ability is encoded into our DNA blueprint, which is waiting to be read to its full potential. This fact is borne out by recent scientific research and human experience as well as the ancient mythology and the inner knowing that so many of us tune into. Paradise on earth is more than just a garden of beauty, it is about a state of mind that can see and respond to that beauty, that can be informed and ecstatically guided by it on a moment by moment level, a paradisiacal sense of connection, an Edenic state.

On this retreat your teachers are Holly Paige who will focus on entheagenic nutrition and earth connection and Gwyneth Robbins who will share her deep knowledge and experience of plant communication and crystal healing.

About Sao Miguel, Azores
Known as the 'Green Island', Sao Miguel is the largest of the lovely nine islands of the Azores, Europe's remotest outpost. Formed from the upper sections of volcanoes, these islands were pristine and uninhabited until the 15th century and remain one of the most unspoilt areas on the planet. Modern conveniences such as electricity did not arrive until about forty years ago, there is no industry to speak of apart from cheese production; this is a place to regenerate in the wonders of nature. A rich variety of landscapes and microclimates exists on the islands. Within a tropical/subtropical climate influenced by high pressure atmospheric conditions and the Gulf Stream. On this island you can see the stunning natural beauty of the volcanic crater Sete Cidades and the waterfall Caldeira Velha.

rite of passage

Ibogaine takes the human who journeys with it into a  deep revelatory experience, a review of life situations including traumas, with the necessary detachment to process them.  Its addiction healing powers were first discovered in the industrialised world accidentally and serendipitously in 1962  by New Yorker Howard Lotsof, who is featured in this documentary.  He was addicted to heroin at the time, took a dose of ibogaine (estimated to be about 500 mg) for fun then realised he had lost interest in drugs and had a new life path.

Ibogaine has been traditionally extracted from the bark of the iboga plant by the Bwiti people in Gabon.  Nowadays there are alternative ways of producing it too.

It is the only known effective treatment for several addictions.  Perhaps because it offers a true rite of initiation; the experience and connection that is being truly sought. The way it, within hours, relieves withdrawal symptoms and addiction is becoming widely known.  It is important to take initiatory doses of ibogaine in safe conditions (there are treatment centres around the world) and also move forward afterwards into a new phase of life because that is what is really being sought in a rite of passage.
