After the battle of Kuruksetra, India, five Pandavas, all brothers, came to the lake to rest. After waking up, the oldest Yudishtir, came to understand that all his brothers have died from drinking water from the lake. At that moment he heard the voice from the sky, telling him: “Your brothers are dead, but I can bring them back to life if you... read more

Once upon the time, legend says, the chief of the village, took a walk deep into the Amazonian rainforest. On the shores of Ucayali River, he stumbled upon a tall tree and was astonished at the transformation that was happening in front of his eys. The birds purched on the tree’s branches would turn into fish and dive deep in the water.

It was late at night, at the end of our fifth ayahuasca ceremony. In all ceremonies, Maestra Juana would sit in front of each individual in our group and sing the icaro just for that one person ... or rather – she would channel the vision into sound. They say that ayahuasca, or the spirit of this sacred plant, opens the Onanya’s (aka shaman,... read more

Nine days have passed since hurricane Maria, category four, hit our little enchanting island of Puerto Rico. As strange is it sounds, I have felt absence of fear all this time. Before, while preparing for it, and during its 17 hours of howling winds. I feel stable, quiet and patient, the qualities not so characteristic of my temper. More or less,... read more

There is a child inside each one of us that believes in miracles. That child hopes and wishes for one miracle every night when looking up towards the sky - the magical space filled with infinite number of stars, thinking which one he wants to visit in the dreams of tonight. Some of us, despite of the age, secretly still belive in farytales, gnomes... read more

After some time, years, maybe even lifetimes, of exploration of one’s own consciousness, heart and soul, one comes to the nameless place inside him/herself. This actually is not a place, neither a person, or a thing, nor the moment in time. It is something nameless, simultaneously fullness and emptiness…life that is not lived, experience which did... read more

the last year seems to be spilling out in this new, 2017. The fruits of different choices, personal and collective, are ripening and manifesting now in January. Therefore, these days yet don’t really seem like a new beginning, at least to me, but rather as the end of ends.

Apparently, one of the most logical and most simple things in this world is to love the self. In order to optimally function and supply all organs with nutrients and oxygen via blood, the first thing heart has to do is to give that same blood to itself.

Not too long ago, at the times when our grandparents were children, it was not so unusual and rare for every village to have one healer. Those healers were usually women, who received the knowledge, verbally and experientially, from their mothers and grandmothers.

Deeply gray, heavy, thick clouds are slowly moving over my head. Lying down on the sand, I watch the bird, high in the sky, brushing the clouds with its wings. It is cruising, first in a circle, than in a curvy manner, as it is finding its way towards where it wants to go. I wonder if it knows at all where it is going, I wonder if that is at all... read more
