This is an exceptional and vitally necessary ceremony, a night full of prayers of forgiveness, love, hope and healing for our beloved SachaMama, Mother Amazon Jungle. This is your chance take part and help.
Sharing all of her wisdom, respect and love, Mama Selmira will perform an impressive prayer ceremony in her ancestral Amazonian Shipibo language. She will thank her beloved home, the natural paradise of her ancestors, who taught her all the secrets of this wonderful and great medicinal garden, which has been being destroyed for hundreds of years. And now it is burning! It’s the home of animals, birds, trees and natives who cannot understand the reasons for the destruction.
Now it is time for us to do something significant, something valuable for ourselves, for our children, our families and most especially for our great home. Our PachaMama – Mother Earth, with all of her rivers, seas, lakes, mountains, valleys, canyons, deserts, snows, rains, winds, animals, birds, fishes, and all the living things we share our daily lives with. Our great SachaMama – Madre Amazon Jungle, who feeds us, sustains and regulates us energetically.
Mama Selmira wants to invite everyone, all families and their children to join us in a powerful night of ceremony and prayers that can help to change our lives and heal our precious SachaMama.
We invite each participant to bring small natural branches and natural flowers to this ceremony (please try to avoid buying them. If possible take a walk and find them or maybe you have them already from a previous time you have spent in nature). Mama Selmira will put branches and flowers together in a basket to make an offering and will invite each participant to add their own flowers into the basket at the end, along with their deepest prayers of forgiveness and healing to SachaMama. During this ceremony Mama Selmira will sing her sacred Ikaros or Songs of Healing. At the end we will sing, dance and celebrate as children of the great PachaMama – Mother Earth.
Free Ceremony from 19:00 to 21:00:
We walk barefoot in order to feel the freshness of the Amazonian sacred land.
We breathe deeply in order to fill our lungs with pure Amazonian oxygen.
We bathe in the most powerful healing waters of our planet in the Amazon.
We nourish ourselves with the best fruits and we warm our bodies with the millions of trees in this enormous medicine garden… The Amazon.
We should always say thank you to SachaMama, Mother Selva, Mother Earth.
It’s always time to thank Sacha Mama – Mother Selva, Mother Earth
