The Night Watchman: 
Amazonian Guayusa Dream Tea Ceremony  


With Itzhak Beery 
and the Core-Members of the NY Shamanic Circle
Sunday, November 26;  from 7 – 11 pm
The location will be given to those who register only. No walks in.
Energy Exchange: $40

This is a powerful experiential intensive shamanic evening into the dimensions of Dreamtime and altered states. It is a vision quest that challenges your inner warrior, your sense of space, time and direction, as you step in into the mystery of Dreamtime.

In a special traditional ceremony, we honor the Guayusa tree spirit with chants, songs, and music. As we sip the sacred tea, we go into a deep meditative silence in darkness to encounter and communicate with our spirit guides and other spirits to enable us to bring new visions and awareness into our lives.

The Amazonian Kichwa of Ecuador believes that the Guayusa plant taught human beings how to dream. It is also called “The Night Watchman” as it sharpens the hunter’s instincts keep focused energy and has night vision and awareness. Kichwa families drink gourds of Guayusa around the communal fire from dawn till sunrise as a way to create a tribal bond and rejuvenate their spirit and bodies. During this time, they share their night’s dreams as the shaman interprets them so they can plan the day’s course of action. This is also the time when the elders teach the youth about ancestral myths, hunting practices, and social ethics.

Guayusa, similarly to yerba maté, is a medicinal plant that contains caffeine without the ragged edges and it’s filled with healthy antioxidants. It also has theobromine, found in chocolate, and L-theanine, found in green tea. You will feel fully alive. It is not hallucinating; it simply activates the brain, not allowing it to go deep into theta/delta states (below the level of the conscious mind), which allows you to “see” your vision.

Ipupiara (Sweet WaterPink Dolphin) was an anthropologist, environmentalist, healer, and teacher. He was born into the Ure-wau-wau (People of the Stars) tribe of northern Brazil (which no longer survived) and was their last shaman.  He was a co-founder of Dream Change with John Perkins, The Native Cultural Alliance, and Eco Global Journey organizations which are dedicated to the preservation and sharing of native cultures and wisdom.
Ipupiara (Dr. Bernardo D. Peixoto) had a vast knowledge of the Amazonian languages and shamanic wisdom ways. He put this intimate knowledge of the ecosystem, plants, and animals to use by sharing it with the children at the National Zoo at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington DC.  He also had wonderful stories, he was generous in sharing them with all of us and it is my mission to keep his legacy and spirit alive.
For 12 years I was fortunate to learned, and assist my brother, mentor and friend Ipupiara Makunaiman during the many teachings and healing ceremonies he performed in New York City on behalf of the NY Shamanic Circle’s community, on the many trips I took with him to his home in Taruma Eco Center at the Rio Negro, Brazil, and workshops we taught together.
