Can Ancestral Medicines Heal Humanity?

The Condor Eagle Prophecy is an ancient prophecy with different tellings among different indigenous communities in the Americas. The prophecy, speaks of a time more than 500 years ago when cultural flourishing and trade existed between two vast civilizations - the Eagle people of the North and the Condor people of the South.  

From an archetypal perspective, the Eagle represents the mind; it carries a masculine energy that seeks, to discover and invent. The Condor represents the heart; it carries a feminine energy that seeks connection with the earth. 

The prophecy states that a great division would emerge, leading to a 500-year cycle of violence that would shatter the union of the Condor and Eagle. Some say this coincides with the colonial conquest of the Americas that severed the cultural flourishing between the indigenous nations of North and South America. Other interpretations state that in this time of darkness, the Eagle people would become so powerful they would nearly drive the Condor people out of existence.

But after this spiritual winter, it is prophesied that a new 500-year “Pachakuti,” would arise, heralding a great spiritual springtime of purification and rejuvenation, where the Eagle and the Condor peoples would reunite once more.

In this new era, all of humanity would experience an awakening in consciousness and be presented with an opportunity to usher in a time of reconciliation, collective healing, and unity…. If we choose to claim it.

The Time is Now!

We Are in the Midst of a Psychedelic Revival

Ancestral medicines are expanding around the world and sacred ceremonies are the primary vehicle through which non-indigenous people are experiencing psychedelic healing. Huni Kuin, Yawanawá, and Shipibo chants are sung in circles as far-flung as California, Spain, Israel, and Thailand. The entheogenic church movement is gaining velocity as more spiritual communities claim protection under RFRA (the Religious Freedom Restoration Act).

The Legal Psychedelic Sector is Taking Root.

It’s estimated that now over 5.5 million adults in the US use psychedelics, more than any time in modern history.

  • MDMA is expected to receive FDA approval as a treatment for PTSD within the next year.
  • Australia has reclassified MDMA and psilocybin, allowing authorized psychiatrists to prescribe these medicines.
  • In Oregon, over 20 legal psilocybin service centers and 200 licensed facilitators are now in business
  • In a landmark victory, the Church of the Eagle and the Condor became the first non-Christian church in the US to gain the legal right to import and share ayahuasca as its sacrament.

While the Western world gets ready for legal psychedelics within a medical framework, with therapists, clinicians, and medical professionals the first in line to legally administer psychedelic therapies…

…seizures of ancestral medicines continue to rise, along with arrests of indigenous wisdom keepers found carrying their sacrament, as well as raids on entheogenic religious practitioners practicing their faith.

Join the Plant Spirit Summit as we examine the essential role that indigenous medicines play in the Psychedelic Renaissance, and get ready to explore the union of psychedelic therapy and ancestral wisdom for humanity’s collective liberation.

Isn’t “shaman” and “shamanism” technically from Siberia?

A shaman can be defined as an earth-centered community guide and healer who travels between worlds to gather and transmit information that helps individuals and the community.

While the origin of the word “shaman” is believed to come from the Tungus Evenki language of North Asia, whose word “saman” means (very roughly) holder of knowledge. The term “shamanism” was first applied by Western anthropologists as outside observers of the ancient religion of the Turks and Mongols, as well as those of the neighbouring Tungusic and Samoyedic-speaking peoples.

Upon observing more religious traditions across the world, some Western anthropologists began to also use the term in a very broad sense. It was used to describe unrelated magico-religious practices found within the ethnic religions of other parts of Asia, Africa, Australasia, and even completely unrelated parts of the Americas, as they believed these practices to be similar to one another.

Mircea Eliade, Romanian historian and leading interpreter of religious experience, writes "A first definition of this complex phenomenon, and perhaps the least hazardous, will be: shamanism = 'technique of religious ecstasy'."

While it may seem impossible to define such a broad range of phenomena experienced by a pantheon of distinct spiritual and religious practices under a single word derived from North Asian culture, and some argue, to do so is “cultural appropriation”...

The truth is, from a linguistic perspective, language often follows and evolves based on commonly accepted understanding of what a word means by its users. So while the word curanderismo is more accurate when describing ayahuasca shamanism, and pajelança is more accurate in describing shamanism on the other side of the border in Brazil, in the English language the word “ayahuasca shamanism” dominates keyword searches for this phenomenon.

And so it is that “shaman” and “shamanism” have become the accepted, most commonly used words that describe the ancient practice that involves a practitioner reaching altered states of consciousness in order to perceive and interact with a spirit world and channel these transcendental energies into this world in order to affect real change.

A “shaman” is a person regarded as having access to, and influence in the world of benevolent and malevolent spirits. A shaman acts as an intermediary between the natural and supernatural worlds, using magic to cure illness, foretell the future, control spiritual and elemental forces, and affect outcomes in the physical world. Typically such people enter a trance state during a ritual, and practice divination and healing.

Why are only “a portion” of your proceeds going to support indigenous causes?

EntheoNation is a small, privately funded social enterprise that generates revenue from the sale of products and services, that then must cover the cost of operations, software, faculty payroll, web development, graphic design, program administration, and everything that goes towards excellent delivery of our customer and client experience as our primary fiduciary responsibility. 

We operate under the principles of sacred commerce, supporting the livelihoods of our psychedelic community collaborators and indigenous partners, in the spirit of profound service and as a labor of love. We are not a 501(c)3 charitable organization that delivers social programs for free, while financially supported by wealthy private donors or foundation grants. Neither are we funded by venture capital investment or cannabis cash. But we do our very best to find ways to support indigenous communities and projects as company resources allow.

Is it cultural appropriation to sell digital content about indigenous wisdom and medicine?

This is not an event based on indigenous teachings. This Summit is a practical orientation guide to contemporary medicine culture and presents a general overview of core shamanic concepts found across numerous cultures.

This program does not offer any indigenous spiritual teachings that are considered to be secret or restricted knowledge reserved for people initiated into a specific lineage.  

This program does present different cultures and spiritual traditions so that if students wish to receive indigenous teachings directly, they will be better oriented towards connecting with a lineage and teachers.

All experts featured in this program have shared their knowledge freely. The indigenous who are featured in this event have granted us permission for their knowledge to be shared in the program.

Is the commercialization of plant medicines exploitative of indigenous people?

The commodification of plants and the expansion of their commerce beyond their native regions has been a practice as old as human civilization. Coffee, cinnamon, potatoes, ginseng, tobacco, sage, and reishi mushrooms were all once “indigenous”.

Many plant medicines, like ayahuasca, have been “commercialized” for a long time already. Like doctors of today, in the Upper Amazon, shamans and healers have always received payment for healing services, whether in cash, food, or traded labor, like helping out with the harvest.

These sacred plant medicines were long administered as part of a holistic health care system, by shamans and healers who received some form of exchange for their services.

Shouldn’t sacred plant medicines be free?

While indeed the plants growing in Nature ARE free, it takes a lot of time, energy and expertise to find them, extract them, then make them into medicine. It also takes considerable time, energy, and expense to lead an all-night ceremony. Typically this labor isn’t free.

Most of the people who believe that “sacred plant medicine should be free” are Westerners who confuse plant medicine shamanism with Eastern spiritual traditions, where spiritual services were conducted for free for the community, and the community regularly tithed the monastery cash and harvest on a monthly basis, allowing monks and nuns to focus entirely on spiritual practices.

To expect indigenous people and native Amazonians to do all of this without pay, is not so different from the colonialism that once made the indigenous slaves of the conquistadors.

We expect to be paid for our work. We pay doctors in the West. Why shouldn’t plant medicine healers and shamans be paid well also?
