I went through a three-year shamanic initiation process working intensely with medicinal plants and spirit teachers. The liana Ayahuasca and luminescent tree Noya Rao are my main teachers and guides of the plant realm. I have also worked with and this way experienced healing through the jungle plants Chullachaqui, Bobinsana, Marosa and cactus Huwachuma. Thus, I relate my experience the most with Peruvian shamanic traditions.
I have transmissions of Medicine Buddha and Green Tara as an anchor to my Buddhist teaching lineage and a blessing to have met the H.H. the 14th Dalai Lama in person as well as H.E. Chöden Rinpoché who enabled me to walk my path freely into the new discoveries, away from the vows once taken.
But beside it all I was lucky to have met now a very dear friend, teacher back then when I was twenty years old, who enabled me to self-heal heavy physical ailments, opened me up for the energy healing work and its appliance through physical touch. For his presence in my life I am eternally grateful.
Otherwise I consider myself to be self taught as I am eager to soak in any valuable, resonating, truth to me speaking information in my day to day life. This way I continuously grow and evolve my practices from knowledge that finds its way to me, as well as from experiences and appliance of the treasures I've already gathered.
Rao Noma – it is the name that shamanic teacher received for me in the beginning of my tree-year initiation period.
