The Temple of the Way of Light - BENA CAYA AINBOBO (A New Feminine Spirit) is a Shipibo shamanic healing centre offering intensive ayahuasca / plant spirit healing retreats with predominantly with women healers near Iquitos in Peru. We are dedicated to offering our guests the chance to benefit from the ancient healing wisdom of the Shipibo people, and to helping this unique culture to preserve its knowledge and identity in the 21st Century. We work with some of the most respected and powerful healers (Onanya) from the Shipibo tribe, many of whom have only previously worked within their communities. All our Onanya are experienced, gentle, caring, deeply dedicated to healing and embody the wisdom and sincerity of their people. We are very privileged to be working with them. Our work is rooted in the deep and profoundly powerful healing traditions of the Shipibo people and offers an ancient yet pioneering path to health, re-discovering our true nature and re-awakening to our true purpose. We firmly believe in the overwhelming benefits of the medicine Ayahuasca and the healing potential of plant spirit doctors from the Amazon Rainforest. We are not a new age movement, nor based in any religion; healing from the plants is for everyone on the planet irrelevant of race, creed, color and social or financial status. The core of our work is focused on deep healing on all levels; physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. The main pillars of our work are: Working with predominantly women healers: A unique focus on working with onanya ainbobo - indigenous women healers working within the rich and complex medical/magical tradition of the Shipibo people. These women have an incredible level of compassion and wisdom as well as an encyclopedic knowledge of the medicinal plants of the jungle. Fundamental to our work is offering ceremonies within a safe, caring and loving environment within a container of integrity. A high ratio of healers to guests: Our workshops & ceremonies are run by six or seven healers with an average group size limited to 21 people to ensure that each guest has individual and close attention throughout their healing process. Due to the unprecedented high number of healers, we have different specialists that are able to work on many different conditions and illness whilst ensuring that our guests receive a very high level of attention, professionalism and service throughout the workshop. In every one of our ceremonies our guests receive ikaros from most of the healers resulting in 30 to 40 ikaros (sound healing treatments) per workshop. This is one of the main reasons we have been able to acheive such positive results over the years. 7 ceremonies per 12 day workshop: We are passionate about our work and deeply committed to our guests healing experiences. We ensure that each guest has the opportunity to work very deeply with ayahuasca and critically to ensure that our healers & the plant doctors have sufficient time with each guest to carry out a high level of work. This level of work cannot be carried out with less ceremonies. The process is profound and we are dedicated to effecting lasting change for everyone who comes to the Temple. The workshops are an intense healing course that is structured by the plant doctors which also initiates a much longer term healing journey that continues to unfold for months / years after coming to the Temple. Focusing on social benefit rather than profit: We are a social enterprise where all financial gain is invested into the development of the Temple infrastructure and community projects through our NGO - The Arkana Alliance - which benefit local and Indigneous communities. We believe strongly that we need to "give back" to the people of the Amazon and have a long term vision / mission connected to our NGO partnering with the people of the Amazon to preserve and protect indigenous traditions, lands, identities and ancient medicinal practices that are rapidly being encroached upon by materialism and western socio-economic development policies. Community, permaculture and sustainable living: Incorporating the principles of self-sufficiency, interdependence and responsibility, since 2009 we have been implementing a permaculture program within the healing center and developing a cooperative system with the five surrounding villages for the production of food and medicinal plants for the Temple. We have also set up an integrated waste management system within the Temple and have also begun to implement waste management projects in our local villages. Our aim is to be completely self-sustained as soon as we possibly can. We also hope to build an eco-village in 2012 for people who wish to further connect with the wisdom and guidance of the plants and live sustainably from & in harmony with the forest around us.

#102: Dr. Tanya Maté | Ayahuasca Integration - Trailer Listen to the full episode here: iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/ca/podcast/vancouver-real/id923776316?mt=2 Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JAELUL1IdIY&t=214s Stitcher: http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/vancouver-real Dr. Tanya Maté is a naturopathic doctor and is the daughter-in-law of our past guest, Dr. Gabor Maté. She is currently working with a shamanic healing centre near Iquitos, Peru called The Temple of the Way of Light. Her role is the director of integration and she helps people who participate within the deep personal work, facilitated by plant medicine that is centred around Ayahuasca, integrate their experiences back into “normal” life. Tanya is deeply committed to helping people uncover whatever is at the root of their psycho-emotional or physical condition chronic, and helping them find passion, freedom, and vitality in life. Using a trauma-informed approach that has been heavily influenced by her training with her father-in-law, Dr. Gabor Maté, Tanya spends as much of her life as possible in and around the medicine.

Vancouver Real Thank you for the share! You're doing amazing things!
Braja Cole So excited to connect! I am a professional herbalist who has been working with Ayehuasca (in the dreamtime here in Canada) but in person in Latinamerica. Huge gratitude and Blessings of light!
Px Hp Magic mushrooms in Ireland are also great for this type of work but don't tell anyone like I did as you can get in trouble for helping yourself with the evidence based research that you have read about on sites like yours and MAPS and Beckley Foundation. Keep up the good work💜☮
Kristin Lamont So much respect for the work you do
Andy Zaremba I'd love to make a trip to the Temple!
Mike Brancatelli Nice!
Maria Lopez Go Tanya!!!
Ivan Anderson Just telling it as it is - brilliant!
Jennifer Trkla In the past couple of weeks I was discussing this topic, with my girlfriend of 30 years who just celebrated 10 years of marriage with her partner. She took part in this type of ceremony years ago and resides in Courtney BC on Vancouver island. She suggested this for me but due to increasing "risk," presently she doesn't know whose reputable and who isn't. I live in Kamloops BC. I've seen Dr Gabor Mate here once and he's unreal. No words to express the amount of respect I have for him. I'm interested in more information since I'm told this is likely what might finally be helpful to me and bring peace in my journey. Thank you Tanya. Any information that is relative I would appreciate.
Qarl Johnson Gabor Mate really blew it for many folks in Canada who were involved with Ayahuasca. It all had to go back underground after Maté blabbed his big mouth. Not everyone has resources to get out of Canada to participate in Aya ceremonies.
Heather Renee Adam Michalak lol this is where I'm going on my retreat in June and just came across this post, with a Gabor Mate tag!
Michael Camper what do we do in Ontario... i want to do Aya but can not afford to travel to Amazonia ( or Vancouver... )
Sophie Smith I want to try it how I do that. I'm on the sunshine coast B.C
