I am really interested to hear more of this. It sings to me in many ways.
When I was about 18 I took acid with friends in this incredible wilderness park on the West Australian coast. This dog appeared out of nowhere and he said to me that if I let him nip my hand he will take me for an adventure around the bay. I said okay. And he did bite me but not hard, just enough to pull me at first along with him. And he guided me around the beach and bay. Exquisitely beautiful. I was naked in this pristine beautiful place, me this dog and my friends. I told them that the dog had spoken to me and they laughed and told me I was just high. I have also taken psychedelics in Peru and I have known for some time the expression of sex as primal creative force of the cosmos. So Im eager for your next instalment. Thank you.
Pampariyutsi / Thank you for sharing your experience Minxen! I hope you enjoyed your walk around the bay and time in Peru with the wonderful Shipibo People. I find today it's it's all too common in Westernized societies to minimize our ability to communicate with all of life. If you watch the film, "Huicholes: The Last Peyote Guardians" you'll be able to watch clips of Mara'akames communicating with our other-than-human relatives. I hope you enjoy the next installment!
super interesting. I doubt very many of us, even in the Americas knew about these people.
Pampariyutsi / Thank you! We're uncommonly heard of, but more people are familiar with our art. If you look up "Huichol Chaquira Gourd Bowl" on an image search platform of your choice, you may recognize some of our art. If not, once you've seen it, it's hard to forget!
