About the event
OUR PRAYER FOR THIS CEREMONY RETREAT:
Through this work we are continually confronted with our own imperfections and humbled by the awareness of our own divinity.
This medicine is a powerful & sacred tool: it illuminates our inner being and gives us perspective into the many layers of our subconscious. This, in turn, can have positive, life-changing effects on our habitual patterns and beliefs. Beyond the reorientation of these outdated patterns is the gift of building connections that support the continuous unfolding and deepening of our inner knowing.
We are learning that there is no limit to the growth that any one soul can experience in a lifetime. Yet it takes digging deep and a willingness to recognize our conditioned patterns to step into that liminal space of infinite growth.
We have found that the profound nature of this work is best served by an environment where everyone feels comfortable enough to be truly vulnerable with one another.
For this reason, we do a thorough screening process to ensure a safe container for all participants.
We strive for our maloca to remain open to anyone looking for a safe, non-judgemental place to face themselves and bring their best self forward.

ABOUT KIBI KAYA HEALING + OUR MISSION:
In Shipibo, the language of our indigenous teachers in the Peruvian Amazon, "kibi" means "towards," and "kaya" is "soul" or "spirit."
Our mission at Kibi Kaya Healing is to serve as a bridge for Spirit. For when we come together to sit and pray, we support each other in a journey of inner transformation that takes root at the very core of our being.
Robin (Mananxawe) and Alicia (Ani Kaya) offer ceremonies in the traditional Shipibo way - sitting in the dark - which allows for deep, personal reflection and healing.
Robin is a direct apprentice of Papa Gilberto Mahua, of the Mahua family, widely considered to be one of the most renowned healing lineages of the Ucayali region of Amazonian Peru. Through his extensive training and his many plant dietas, Robin serves as a channel for Spirit and the plants. He chants traditional Shipibo icaros that help to purify the body, release blockages and restore balance.
Robin is supported in ceremony by his wife Alicia, a seer and intuitive guide. What often happens in ceremony is that people come up against their most primal fears and core wounding. With her compassion and deep understanding of spirit, Alicia is able to see these wounds and help our patients navigate through them.
For this upcoming weekend of prayer, Robin and Alicia are very honored to co-facilitate once again with their dear friend and ally, Tara Medico. Tara is a master healer and a channel for Spirit whose chants and guitar songs are channeled directly from Source.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THIS WEEKEND:
In traditional Shipibo ceremonies we sit in the dark for the first half of the night, as the darkness helps us to activate our vision and allows for the spirits of the plants to enter the room and to sing through us.
Robin will open the ceremony with longer cleaning chants that purify the space and help prepare us for the individual healing chants that each participant will receive. Then Tara and Robin will alternate between sharing medicine songs and Icaros or healing chants. Alicia will be available to anyone needing more personalized support or spiritual council.
After this work is complete, the facilitators will light the candles and offer drum and guitar songs, and play other instruments. As is customary in our tradition, participants are encouraged to share their own songs or music during this time if they wish.
We will round out each night with a serving of hapé, a type of Brazilian tobacco that is administered through the nose and that helps to ground and integrate the ceremonial experience.
ICHIBIRES IRAKE & MANY BLESSINGS!!
ROBIN & ALICIA
