The Temple’s Vision
Our vision is to become a plant-spirit medicine based university hospital and flagship healing center embodying the new paradigm in healing, integration and expansion of consciousness.
We specialize in providing the highest-quality healing for our guests, hosting scientific research studies, blending ancient Amazonian healing traditions with progressive psychotherapy and Eastern integrative/spiritual practices and comprehensively focusing on integration and aftercare support.
At the Temple of the Way of Light, in our own small way, we are determined to halt the destruction of our planet and to break the psychological control of our societies. The vision of the Temple of the Way of Light is to provide the ultimate facility to work with ayahuasca and the plant spirits of the Amazon to effect the deepest levels of healing possible. By working with our guests, we hope to spread to the West the love, wisdom and knowledge of both the Shipibo Onanya (healers) and their plant-spirit allies, and shine a light on the root causes of illness and suffering.
We are striving to develop credibility and understanding in the West around the work with ayahuasca and plant-spirit healing in the Amazon and help this ancient practice become accepted by the mainstream as a vitally important spirit-assisted, plant based healthcare system for us all.
Guests receive an intense and accelerated spiritual, emotional, mental and physical cleanse of the dense energies that hold back their lives. We help our guests understand that the difficulties of their lives, upon release, can become catalysts for re-birth and reconnection with a higher perception.
Ayahuasca and the plant spirits help remove aggressive, intolerant and negative tendencies by working through personal traumas, emotional problems, negative patterns and programs. Our minds and hearts are slowly transformed and our work helps develop self-respect, self-worth and ultimately self-love.
