Gray G – U.S.A.

I will be forever grateful for the time I spent at Dreamglade. Stace and Drew are two of the most loving teachers I have ever met, and I consider them friends. I could go on for days about the visions I witnessed, but what i’d rather do instead is say how I have been able to incorporate the lessons I learned from ayahausca and the facilitators at Dreamglade. Aya taught me that I can do anything so long as I incrementally stack the odds in life in my favor. Yes, i’ve struggled since coming back to american society, but what i’ve noticed is that since the slate has been cleaned everything is now on a system of trial and error. Hardships occur, but my intuition doesn’t reside in a frozen prison anymore. I hear what it has to say and mostly listen to it. Sometimes the ego gets a win or two, but I now know and feel my higher self beckoning me at every turn.

Drew uses a simple yet wonderful analogy of shining your light as you would a flashlight on a dark corner that has yet to reveal it’s contents and how life has so many uncertainties, but so long as we’re rooted in ourselves, we too can enact our beings as a flashlight of sorts so that we can intuitively traverse obstacles and note the splendors the universe provides to us.

Stace lends himself in a way that promotes independence. I was always intrigued by his demeanor, because he isn’t incredibly transparent. I quickly learned to listen to what he had to say, because ultimately he would throw the ball back into my court, but do it in such a way that I was able to critically think about what I was wrestling with and how I could meditate on it from within rather than outsourcing for answers or affirmation. Needless to say, our conversations were some of the best and have helped me to realize I am my own rock.

Estella.. oh Estella. A mighty and powerful woman. A bit stoic at times, and then you’d catch a half smile occasionally and maybe a full on laugh on occasion if you were lucky 🙂 Her icaros are beautiful. She steers the course of the session and infuses so much love and positivity into the process. Shit does get real in that maloka sometimes. Know this. Estella will chew the bad up, spit it into oblivion, puff a mapacho, and do it all over again. She is a loving, kind, resilient curandero who will go to battle for you.

I have a lot of work to do, but what’s different now is I have a love for the process that will take me where I need to go.

Namaste, my friends, my family.
