Amazonian Shamanism

Kurikindi is a Kichwa Amazonian Shaman. He was born in the rainforests of Ecuador and into to an ancient line of shamanic families. Kurikindi has over 36 years of experience. Since very young he was immersed in the shamanic way of life. He feels that growing up in his atmosphere was a great privilege and an honour. His family travelled long distances and to other countries in South America to spend time with shamans from other cultures and nationalities to learn and share knowledge and experiences. Kurikindi had the unique opportunity to learn from, and work a long side both male and female shamans as both of his parents, grandparents and great grandparents were practicing shaman. Kurikindi´s life changed dramatically when he was 12 years old. He had to save the life of a powerful and well known Shaman, his father. After this and although still very young, he was recognized as an adult practicing shaman. Until then, he had only been an apprentice. At 46 years old, still young by most shamanic standards, he finds himself here in the UK, ready to talk, to teach, to learn and to listen. Kurkindi will be sharing his wisdom and messages from the Amazon He will tell us how the cosmology of his people, the Kichwa, gives a framework to understanding his unique form of shamanic healing and how he works with energy, ikaros (plant songs) and sacred plants for healing. Ikaros are an integral part of the healing process and have a very deep and important meaning. Using the icaro means 'charging' an object or potion with the power of the shaman, conferring upon it a specific property to be transmitted to the recipient, be it purification, protection or healing.

College of Psychic Studies
HOST:
College of Psychic Studies - The College was founded in 1884 by a group of eminent scholars and scientists. Its purpose was to facilitate formal investigation into the psychic and mediumistic phenomena that were such a topic of debate in the Victorian era. With great courage, this group of distinguished people, some notable in science, others from within the ranks of the Anglican clergy, defied the prevailing canons of respectability in order to proclaim to a world of increasing materialism that human personality survives bodily death and that this is capable of demonstration.
