“When we first encountered the Wistin Origins website I just knew, immediately and in my heart, that this was the place and the people through which we wanted to have our second meeting with the Mother Vine. My husband and I went to the Amazon last year for our first sacred ceremonies and after our return we searched the internet for places in Europe. But that wasn't easy! Either the offers on hand were just off somehow, both people and cost-wise, and if there is something one needs to be extremely cautious about and research well- it's where one decides to uncover ones heart, soul and spirit...
A dear friend, our facilitator from last year in Peru, told us that her friends Henna & Richard were establishing a place in Andalucía, and lo and behold! This was it. She said that their ceremonies were beautiful and full of love, and so they truly are. When encountering Mother Ayahuasca you have to do the work yourself and it can be very hard and challenge you to the max. These extraordinary shamans may be European and to us, to me, they excelled at the same level of dedication and love as the ones we were blessed to have in the rainforest. I would say that their European roots just added in the most positive way to our having deep and intimate sessions with both Kambo, Grandfather Tobacco and The Mother Vine.
Their Icaros... their songs, their music... oh dear Universe, we were so lucky! Their icaros, their medicine, their healing abilities are as profound as their dedication. I will never forget those voices and their divine nature- when Henna sang in Finnish it could break your heart wide open...
Their Kambo sessions really rocked my old stuff, and getting to meet the strength and grandfatherly power of Tobacco was a gift. Richard’s strength and power matches Henna’s to perfection, their voices carrying the joy of angels and the wisdom of having suffered. All this made me feel safe and so well taken care of.
The gorgeous place itself with sweet and breathtaking views over the ancient Andalusian landscape, with the moon and stars at night and the life-giving sun during the day. Before the Tobacco ceremony we drove to a magical mountain area, El Torcal, which was a great and inspiring medicine in itself. The fresh, nutritious and delicious dieta food Henna made was ‘just what the doctor ordered' and our conversations full of super interesting information, hilariousness and supportive personal sharing :)
Topping it off, on the last day when integrating all the teachings and lessons received in each and every ceremony was the thing to do, we went to a lake, turquoise and so sweet and fresh and started to land, softly. The porridge that morning, breaking the dieta, was too good to be true!
We will be back. I treasure the love and connection with our new friends and blessed shaman healers. I can recommend Wistin Origins to any searching soul who is ready to take responsibility and a great leap into new territories of the heart and soul!”
