As many of you know, I am writing this from the Peruvian Amazon
where I will be until the end of August. The 2nd Annual
Conference on Indigenous Healing has just finished, and it has been
10 days of learning, growth, meeting healers from around the world,
and working with and getting to know wonderful indigenous shamans
from Peru, Ecuador and Peru.
People came from North America, Mexico, New Zealand, Australia, Many
countries in Europe, Israel, and even one shaman from Lapland, far
above the arctic circle. It was there where the word Shaman probably
originated. Now it has spread to throughout virtually every
continent on the planet as the term for healers who, while
respecting the ways of modern medicine, follow the old ways of
healing with natural medicines, prayer, music, song, and spirit.
To us of the so-called civilized world, their actions and techniques
may appear primitive and superstitious. Yet many are master healers,
able to take people through levels of healing so deep that seemingly
incurable diseases can be healed as if by magic. Translating
their technology and understanding how this occurs is the work of
psychology, biochemistry, botany, neurochemistry, spirituality, and more.
For example, the beautiful tree frog above has been used as a
medicine in the Amazon basin for thousands of years. The
Medusa tree frog secrets a liquid from glands on it's back when it's
under stress. This "sweat" as the Matis Tribe call
it here, contains more biologically active
alkaloids than anything else known to science. It's being studied
in the United States by the
National Institute of Health as a possible treatment for cancer,
heart disease, and many other conditions. And it's just one of
tens of thousands of substances from this remarkable area.
