Ah, confirmation from the folks at Sacred Science:
(I’ve underlined the “nut” of it.)
…This week’s piece is in response to a question that I am often asked after screenings of The Sacred Science film.
The question is: “Do I have to take a trip to the Amazon to get this type of healing?”
My best response to this, believe it or not, is that many of the techniques seen in the film can be applied in just about any town or city on the planet. With a little creativity, you don’t necessarily need to seek out a pricey jungle healing center or track down a traveling shaman in order to heal using these methods.
Below is one of the fundamental strategies that the shamans used in our film. Don’t be deceived by how simple it is!
Full Immersion In NatureOne of the most overlooked tools used in traditional jungle medicine is full immersion in nature. I’m talking about isolation in the middle of the woods, surrounded by nothing but trees, grass, rocks, and the occasional furry passerby.
What happens when we rid ourselves of all modern day distractions? Our televisions, our computers, the radio, even newspapers and books – things that certainly have value but also take focus away from ourselves.
If you’ve seen The Sacred Science, you have a good idea of just what I’m talking about. The patients we brought into the Amazon packed a ton of extra stuff including iPods, laptops, writing instruments, painting tools, you name it.. And to their dismay, each of these items was taken “for safe keeping” by the support staff upon their arrival.
You see, in this type of ancient medicine the key is to rid yourself of any outlet that you can distract yourself with, regardless of how beneficial you might think it is…
