Chili pepper dieta, Vision Quest and Sundance.
Hi everyone, here are some news since I last wrote here in February. I hope you are doing well and the virus isn’t treating you too bad.
If you want to hear and discuss with me I will be on Clubhouse tomorrow Saturday at 10am PT, 1pm ET and 18h Paris.
I also just launched a podcast (available on Apple Podcasts, Anchor) that goes with my smaller newsletter where I share more frequently, yawa.news. I also share the podcast in <10min videos on my Instagram @loic.
I spent 1.5 months with the Yawanawa tribe in Brazil where I did the “Iuchi” dieta. I was isolated in a small hut remote from the village in the forest with very little food based on plants only and a high daily dose of red chili peppers. The month long experience was unforgettable. I learned a lot as always but this time was very special as I stayed mostly by myself learning with the animals and plants. What I received was so strong and full of teachings that I did not share much about it yet, I am still processing.
I am now preparing for my third vision quest, 4 days in a cave (a “Cenote”) with Maya teachers who got also trained with the Lakota tribe of South Dakota. In May I will stay 4 days in the jungle with no food, no water, nothing else than a few clothes in a space smaller than my body in length and little or no sleep. It is called a vision quest as the explosive cocktail of no-water fasting with no sleep gets you access to spiritual mind states impossible to see otherwise. It is a very intense meditation.
After these 4 days and a one day break I will enter my first “Sundance” on a Maya pyramid. The invitation came as I helped at my second “Moondance” where many women dance to the moon (you could watch this rare video of Abuela Ursula Ketzalocelotl in conversation with Magdalena Sartori).
