About the event

In the gentle glow of Grandfather Fire, carefully tended by fire keepers Ian and Juanita, we invite you to reset and uplift your divine energetic grid. Through the use of sacred songs and ceremonial Hapé, we'll embark on a collective journey to take care of the grief that resides in our hearts and fully embrace the beauty of life in all its myriad forms.

This ceremony is a profound opportunity to clear your energetic system. We'll engage in sacred smudges, offering our prayers to the fire, further supporting the healing and purification of our spirits. It's a night of remembrance, a chance to honor the thinning veil between our world and the next, and to welcome the loving presence and infinite support of our ancestors.

Ray and Magnus, will guide us with the powerful melodies and sacred songs they've learned from the heart of the Amazon jungle. Their harmonious voices will infuse the ceremony with the ancient wisdom of the forest, creating an enchanting and soul-stirring atmosphere that will uplift and cleanse your spirit.

Contribution: $45 (Please send your contribution upon registration to @laura-escalante via Venmo). Register promptly as space is limited.

About the Medicine: Ceremonial Rapé

Tsunu by Paka, Yawarani Village, Yawanawa

Tsunu is a potent rapé made by Paka, the son of Pai Nani, the spiritual leader of his village. This grounding medicine can help you reconnect with your body, release what you need to let go of, and offers various health benefits, including anti-inflammatory properties. Paka crafted this rapé during a recent dièta, guided by his father's wisdom.

Vashawa by Pina, Varinawa Village, Noke Kuin

Vashawa, which means "serpent" in the Noke Kuin language, is a rapé blend created by Pina Varinawa. It carries a light yet profound energy, often used by the Noke Kuin during ceremonies for its ability to provide rich visions and clear the mind. Pina's experience with Uni and Kambo, along with his deep connection to the jungle's spirits and medicines, makes this rapé truly special.

About the Facilitators:

Magnus: Originally from Norway, Magnus embarked on a spiritual journey that led him to the Brazilian Amazon, where he studied with the Yawanawa people. He immersed himself in their culture, learned to sing and play their prayers, and experienced the magic of Uni (Ayahuasca) and Rumê (rapé). Magnus continues to share the energy of the forest with humility and respect.

Rayanne: An artist, massage therapist, and musician, Rayanne has walked the medicine path for years, guided by her greatest plant teacher, Daime (Ayahuasca). Her healing journey transformed her and helped her rediscover her voice. Rayanne shares medicine songs and creates sacred spaces where people can heal and grow together.

Juanita Ayacitlali: For nine years, Juanita has walked the Red Road, tending to fires and studying with elders and medicine plants from the North and the South. She's a Vision Quester, Earth dancer, and steward on the path of the Santo Daime. Juanita brings a wealth of knowledge in nonviolent communication, social clowning, social permaculture, and more to her work.

We invite you to be a part of this night of deep healing, connection, and celebration of life. Let's embrace the ancient wisdom and the infinite love of our ancestors as we embark on this sacred journey.

Con todo el amor,


Artesan pieces alert <3

For those who have been asking me for ponchos:

Rayanne and Magnus will be bringing a beautiful selection of sacred weaves and ethically sourced alpaca ponchos from Pisac, Peru. These remarkable creations originate from a family deeply rooted in Quechua weaving traditions. The symbols woven into their ceremonial ponchos, shawls, and accessories carry profound significance, representing sacred aspects of nature and life.
