The Modern Shaman Mystery School

A Global Online Gathering of Shamans

Profound Healing, Authentic Power, Divine Purpose, & Awakened Prosperity

Through Visionary Medicine, Shamanic Tools & Ancient Indigenous Wisdom

Brought To You By

Are You a Modern Shaman?

Are you someone who regularly accesses expanded states of consciousness in order to gain knowledge & insight, communicate with spirits, or journey in multi-dimensional realms, so that you can receive guidance, optimize your potential and affect real change in your life, as well as in the world?

Shamanism is the oldest spiritual tradition on Earth, a path of direct revelation that is indigenous to many regions of the world, and wide-ranging in cultural expression. In some parts of the world, shamanic practices are closely tied with honoring the spirits of the Earth, seasons, and elements. In other places, shamanism can appear like an organized religion, with codes of conduct, belief in higher powers, and a complex pantheon of deities who are worshiped through elaborate rituals.

This resurgence of interest in ancient ways, coupled with the proliferation of visionary medicines beyond their native geographic regions and traditional, cultural uses, is presenting a unique opportunity to humanity to rapidly awaken and evolve.

Never before are record numbers of people accessing so quickly the exalted states of consciousness that were once the closely guarded secrets of esoteric mystery schools, unlocked after years and decades of rigorous spiritual training.

However, there are many, many risks that can arise in this wild west world where cultures, medicines, beliefs, practices, and techniques are being mixed and mashed into unique expressions of neo-shamanism.

Inexperienced, unscrupulous shamans and facilitators, dangerous mixing of medicine, unexpected intuitive openings, extraordinary sense perceptions into multi-dimensional reality and intrusive paranormal experiences are some of the things that one can encounter in the world of modern shamanism.

Navigate the World of Modern Shamanism Safely

The mission of the Modern Shaman Mystery School is to advocate for the safe and responsible use of medicines, and provide practical shamanic tools to navigate visionary states of consciousness and multi-dimensional reality, while living in a complex, modern, industrialized world.

And to direct you to the true message of visionary experiences, which are an invitation for you to heal your shadow, discover your own soul’s purpose, claim your unique gifts, and become a visionary agent of change yourself, if you choose to heed the calling.

A New Approach to Soul Retrieval

Shamanism, Racism & Cultural Appropriation in a Multicultural World

The worldwide expansion of sacred plant medicine ceremonies beyond their cultural boundaries has been coined a “global shamanic revival”. Increasing numbers of Westerners are traveling to the Amazon, Central America, and Africa to participate in tribal ceremonies, initiations and festivals. This heightened interest in indigenous culture has fueled an indigenous cultural renaissance in the Amazon and elsewhere.

At the forefront of this “Global Shamanic Revival” are Western teachers of shamanism, facilitators of plant medicine ceremonies, and neoshamans. Western participants in these events don feathers and face paint, often applied by the indigenous themselves. Yet underneath this fascination with indigenous culture, the roots of racism, colonialism and cultural appropriation persist. How can Western ceremony facilitators offer and be compensated for their services, without perpetuating colonialism. How can Western practitioners of shamanism embrace indigenous culture, without appropriating it? How can those who walk the path of plant medicine shamanism do so in right relation to the people who are the cultural guardians of these medicine traditions?

Sex, Sacred Medicine & the Psychedelic Patriarchy

Sexual assault and misconduct among shamans has long plagued the plant medicine shamanism community, resulting in prolonged physical and emotional trauma for ceremony participants, rather than healing. But is it “wrong” for a shaman to sleep with a ceremony participant? When do accepted cultural behaviors transgress into sexual addiction and predation? And is it all okay if the participant indeed wants to have sex with the shaman?

Beyond the misconduct of individual shamans & medicine facilitators, how is it possible to address pervasive sexist attitudes in the greater culture? From the Amazon basin to the Psychedelic community, how can men and women address patriarchy and sexual predation in a way where male leaders hold themselves accountable and experience appropriate and meaningful consequences for misconduct, in a way that doesn’t perpetuate victim-shaming or professional pariah-hood for women who speak out?

Leaders in the psychedelic & shamanic community discuss the Importance of a code of ethics in ceremony spaces.

About Your Host

Deep in the heart of the Brazilian Amazon, Lorna Liana discovered her purpose and her divine calling while drinking visionary plant medicines with indigenous shamans. She was given a mission:

“To leverage emerging technologies to preserve indigenous traditions, so that ancient wisdom can benefit the modern world, and technology can empower indigenous people.”

In pursuit of this mission, Lorna became a new media strategist to sustainable brands, social ventures and visionary entrepreneurs, helping them attract their tribe and ignite a movement around their mission-driven businesses. Through podcasting, video blogging and social media, she shares the stories of both indigenous people and the world’s foremost experts in psychedelic science, modern shamanism, and consciousness research to inspire each and every one of us to explore the depths of our minds, spirits, planet…and evolve.

For the past 4 years Lorna has built her business as a digital nomad, living in Thailand, Bali, Mexico, Brazil, Costa Rica, Hawaii, and Spain. She helps intuitives become visionary leaders, and visionary leaders inspire a movement.

About The Artist

Anderson Debernardi was born on the 12th of June ,1968 in Orellana (Distrito de Vargas Guerra) a small town near Ucayali river in the Peruvian Amazon rainforest . When he was 5 years old his family moved to Iquitos. A particularly gifted student during primary and secondary school, Andy won many local art competitions.

Andy was one of founding students of the Usko-Ayar Amazonian School of Painting which was established in 1988 in the city of Pucallpa by Pablo Amaringo and Luis Eduardo Luna. He held key roles in the project as the financial administrator as well as one of the main teachers. In 1992 he was invited along with Pablo Amaringo and two other members of the Usko-Ayar School to Tampere, Finland. In 1995 Andy painted a large 20 square meters mural for the South American Building of the Helsinki Zoo. Andy was later commissioned to paint 16 murals in the South American and African building over the course of 5 years. This work has been presented many times in Finland, where Andy is a very well-known artist. Along with numerous exhibitions in Peru, in cultural institutions and diplomatic circles, his work has also been shown in the United States. He has also participated in different editions of the Noche de Arte en Lima organized by USAFIS. His international activity is quite well known in Washington, Wyoming (Cheyenne), Colorado (Denver), Japan, England, Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Colombia.
