May 2016 Newsletter

After experiencing a summer-like spring, gardens are flourishing, lakes are warming and we are ready to welcome the long days of summer. Everywhere we turn, we see thriving growth—as green dominates the landscape.

This outer growth often promotes inner growth, and we can feel ourselves flowering into fresh energies and insights. We tend to spend more time outside, which aligns us with our natural flow. Time spent in the forest is healing and calming. There is a wisdom in the balance. Every plant is in perfect relation to all the others.

It evokes the words of George Bernard Shaw:
“Except during the nine months before he draws his first breath, no man manages his affairs as well as a tree does.”

This is a time to get out of our own way and allow life to align us with our truth.

“We do not come into this world, we come out of it.”
—Alan Watts

The plants teach us that we are the earth, not just on the earth. Entheogenic plants are among the most powerful tools to show us this, and help us to make peace with our minds. To relax into simple existence and flow with what serves. To simply be, and realize that life is living us. Not the other way around.

Inspired by this growth, IbogaJourney would like to present a sponsorship. We will offer one free session on November 18-20.

This is an opportunity for a past journeyer to mentor in a friend, colleague or relative who cannot afford it. This sponsorship will be based on two written pieces. The first will be from a past participant, discussing the value of their experience. The second will be written by the potential sponsored party, regarding why he or she wishes to join our November group.

Both pieces must be sent in the same email and must have ‘Sponsorship,’ as the email subject. The cutoff for the sponsorship will be October 15. We will review all emails and make our decision by October 25.

We have thoroughly enjoyed relations with all our guests and are greatly looking forward to hearing back from anyone about their integration. Interest has been growing and our sessions have been filling about one month in advance.

After our November 18-20 session, we will be working from outside Canada and our next Squamish ceremony will be hosted in February 2017. We send our love to all and hope the seeds planted will reach fertile soil.
