Journey with one of the Amazon's most beautiful healing plant medicines
We gather together at the beginning of 2021 for a journey into the heart with Bobinsana. We revitalize through plant medicine, we clarify our intentions for the year and we deepen into our unique paths.
The 5 week journey will be a preparation and integration of a 2-week "soft" dieta - which is a modified version of the Amazonian plant dieta. These dietas are the traditional way in which healers learn the healing properties of the plants - by ingesting decoctions of the plants and communicating with the plant spirits. The "softer" version of this can be done safely from your own home. We eat a simple cleansing diet, limit our interactions with the outside world to our minimal responsibilities, and create energetic space to welcome and invite in the Master Teacher Plant - Bobinsana.
What is Bobinsana?
Bobinsana (calliandra angustifolia) grows near streams and rivers in the Amazon. It's easily recognizable do to it's unusual bright pink flowers. It is known as a Master Teacher Plant by the indigenous tribes of the Amazon. She is often referred to as Sirenita Bobinsana, and brings the feminine energy of the water to open and heal the heart. She is a powerful, yet gentle teacher that supports the awakening and healing of the heart - through processing grief, loss, heartbreak and other emotions. She guides us out of a rigid everyday mental state of awareness into an awareness of emotional and subtle energies. She calms the mind and helps us release over-thinking and stress. She is a great teacher of compassion, love, and empathy.
Physically, she stimulates and reinforces the nervous system, purifies and detoxifies the blood, strengthens body functions - including helping regulate heart pressure, and eases body pain and tiredness. Indigenous tribes use a tincture of bobinsana for treating rheumatism, arthritis, colds, uterine disorders, and edema (water retention). They also grate the bark into baths to increase resistance to sickness (cold and chills).
Disclaimer: Please research and consult your doctor if you have medical conditions or are taking medications. Ideally, during dieta, no medications are consumed. Bobinsana is traditionally used as a contraceptive in Peru. While there is no research to confirm this, those currently seeking to get pregnant are advised against taking this plant.
