Lane Wilcken: is one of the few traditional Mambabatok, or tattoo practitioners who ritually applies the tattoo in its traditional context using only the ancient hand tools accompanied by prayers/chants and offerings. He the author of “Filipino Tattoos Ancient to Modern” -and- “The Forgotten Children of Maui: Filipino Myths, Tattoos, and Rituals of a Demigod” He is also a contributing author to “Back from the Crocodile’s Belly: Philippine Babaylan Studies and the Struggle for Indigenous Memory.”
Lane was born from a native Ilokana mother from the both Ilocos regions in the Philippines and an American father of English and Scandinavian descent. Lane’s maternal family was well acquainted in the traditional spiritual practices of the Philippines, his grandmother was a mangngilut (midwife and shamanic healer). His great-great grandmother was a mangnganito or spirit medium. His grandfather understood the oral traditions & practices of the past. At an early age Lane was interested in mythology & other cultural practices which are the foundation of indigenous Filipino tattooing and spirituality.
Lane has been researching the indigenous past of the Philippines and the Pacific Islands for more than two decades. More recently he has been studying about the indigenous traditions of Scandinavia. His interest in cultural tattooing was borne out of a desire to strengthen and reunite others symbolically and spiritually with their estranged ancestors. Lane has given presentations and lectures on the tattooing and other cultural traditions of the Philippines at several universities and private forums.
His audience has included social clubs, university professors, students, and scholars. “Tattooing represents the cumulative understanding of our indigenous world view. I believe that when we understand the depth of wisdom and spirituality associated with our tattooing, many of the destructive flaws in our cultural psyche caused by modernization can be healed. We will be able to accept the past, forgive the mistakes of others and move forward in united strength with our ancestors and posterity.”

After the book signing, from 9pm to 12am, we will transition to a guayusa tea ceremony and vision quest led by Itzhak. Challenge your inner shamanic warrior, your sense of space, time and direction as you step in into the magic of dreamtime. Join us to honor the Amazonian Guayusa dream-tea spirit with a special traditional ceremony where we sip the sacred tea and then go into a deep meditative silence –in complete darkness– to encounter and communicate with our spirit guides to enable us to bring new visions and awareness for our lives. As it happens in indigenous cultures around the world, we will gather in a dark cave (really a Manhattan loft with eye masks!) to explore the shamanic power of darkness, perception and the unknown, to engage in a practice that allows the six senses to magnify the connection to the unseen world and built in intuition.
More about the Book:
Beery shares his experiences with ayahuasca rituals in the Amazon and explains his shamanic way of “seeing” to diagnose spiritual, emotional, and physical ailments via candle readings and remote viewing. Explaining how we are always surrounded by spirits, he recounts helping people communicate with loved ones who have passed on and shares powerful stories of soul retrieval during shamanic journeys to other worlds.
Through his true stories of visions that manifested in reality, Beery reveals that we are all shamans. By igniting our natural intuition and developing trust for our inner powers, we can each connect to the oneness of nature where all knowledge is found.
The Gift of Shamanism: Visionary Power, Ayahuasca Dreams, and Journeys to the Other Realms, has been described as “A beautifully crafted and inspiring work,” by Alberto Villoldo.
ITZHAK BEERY is an internationally recognized shamanic healer and teacher. He is the author of The Gift of Shamanism: Visionary Power, Ayahuasca Dreams, and Journeys to the Other Realms. He was initiated into the Circle of 24 Yachaks by his Quechua teacher in Ecuador and by Amazonian Kanamari Pag'e. He has also trained intensively with other elders from South and North America. The founder of ShamanPortal.org and cofounder of the New York Shamanic Circle, he is on the faculty of New York Open Center. His work has been featured in the New York Times, films, TV, and webinars. Itzhak's next book Shamanic Transformations: True Stories of the Moment of Awakening- Anthology, will be published in September 2015.

A few weeks ago I had the privilege of giving Carla Torres her first traditional handtapped batek reflecting her Visayan and Ilocano heritage. She mentioned recently that her batek felt like it has always been there. Indeed it has, for her ancestors have always been a part of her. The batek simply expressed it on her body. 《《《《《《♢》》》》》》
(The placement of the design is Visayan and the motifs encompass both of her Ilocano and Visayan of descent.)
