"Manifesting your Creative Self Expression
Being embodied within the fullest essence of your creativity to Taylor Eyewalker, is being in the flow of Prosperity. She believe that when you are tapped into an unobstructed creative self expression, you are available to manifest your dreams, experience true sovereignty through self awareness and the interconnectedness of it all.
Taylor is bringing to Costa Mesa her sacred work with the Phyllomedusa BiColor Kambo Frog. Together we will join in group ceremony in a contained, safe and respectful space to work with this medicine individually and collectively.
What is Kambo?
Kambo is the secretion from a common treat frog found in large swaths of the Amazon forest that contains a combination of bioactive peptides. When applied to a secondary layer of epidermis, the peptides are quickly absorbed through the lymphatic system and act to activate the natural healing processes of your own body by triggering a release of built up toxins through a physical purge.
The use of Kambo differs amongst tribes but the main indigenous uses revolve around lifting Panema – an indigenous name for dark or negative energy/ bad luck. It is said that when 'panema' is warded away, the path to overcoming obstacles is revealed and life flows more naturally. It was also commonly used for Hunting Magic – they believe it increases their speed and energy during hunting and that it makes the hunter invisible by temporarily eliminating their human odor. They can run faster, longer and eat and sleep less for a period of time. There are many ways they use it medicinally too, including: malaria, snake bites, fevers, infections, fertility problems, to cleanse, detox and strengthen the mind and body, to increase energy, sexual attraction and stamina and to reduce pain.
Outside of the forest, Kambo has been the subject of more than two decades of medical research. As with venoms from snakes and scorpions, researchers believe that Kambo will open up a new world of treatments for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Chronic Pain, Cancer, HIV, Herpes, Parkinson’s Disease, MS, Alzheimer’s, Depression, Blood Pressure and Thyroid Issues, Hepatitis, Diabetes, Rheumatism, Lyme’s Disease, Arthritis, Addictions, Emotional Trauma and much, much more.
Kambo is one of the strongest natural anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, antimicrobial and anesthetic substances found in the world and one of the strongest, natural ways to strengthen the immune system. It is 30-40 times stronger than morphine in its pain-killing properties. It also detoxes the liver and the intestines so it’s a powerful cleanser. Immediate and short-term effects include enhanced mood, alertness, clarity, focus, energy and increased resistance to stress, tiredness, hunger and thirst. The mind becomes still, you feel lighter and everything becomes easier to manage. In the longer term, Kambo empowers the immune system, rousing the body’s defense systems to their natural functions so that existing health problems are improved or resolved and future ones are less likely to occur. In spiritual terms, Kambo works in a mystical fashion as a light that opens the way, helping us to overcome obstacles and release blockages on an emotional level. It clears our energy field and realigns the chakras enabling us to break subconscious thought forms negative patterns in order to live with more neutrality and positive mind, making more elevated actions and decisions. Deeper work with Kambo over a longer period of time has been shown to transform subconscious patterns and belief systems as well as clear ancestral karmic blocks that stop a person from fulfilling their unique destiny.
Each person that participates in the ceremony will receive personalized attention, meaning the whole group is not receiving Kambo at one time. Every person is staggered so that Taylor may consult with each person to find out how best to support them and the points recommended to work on during the ceremony. Taylor specializes in meridian and auricular point treatments and often uses chakra treatments for her clients as well. By her own personal experience she has found that working deeper within these esoteric and energetic forms of healing targets all systems of the body She is also open and available to give the client a basic and traditional treatment (for women inner right ankle, for men outer right shoulder) if they so choose.
During this ceremony we will work with the focused intention of Manifesting your own unique creative self expression. Taylor will guide you during circle in order to develop your own clear manifestations of what that looks like. Please plan to spend your morning and afternoon with us in sacred space. No one leaves the container before our ceremony is complete. Please bring a journal and pen to write with as you may want to work on personal intentions or write about your process.
Kambo does have a few contraindications:
you cannot receive kambo if you have had serious heart conditions and cannot do cardiovascular exercise, are prescribed medication for low blood pressure, have had a stroke or brain hemorrhage, have had an aneurysm or blood clots, have mental health issues aside from depression, anxiety or PTSD, are currently undergoing chemotherapy or radiotherapy, are prescribed immune suppressants for organ transplant, have Addison's disease, have current and severe epilepsy, are recovering from a major surgery, are under 18, are pregnant or breastfeeding a child under 6 months, are using melatonin or serotonin supplements (must be off for 2 weeks prior).
All treatments will be administered by Taylor EyeWalker, who is based out of LA. She is a Kundalini Yoga Teacher, Trainer, Creator of The UNCOIL Method, Shamanic Healer and Artist. She was trained by leading Kambo expert and IAKP founder Karen Uma Kanya Darke (who draws upon the experience of over 12000 Kambo treatments over the decades) and is now a fully qualified practitioner and proud member of the IAKP (International Association of Kambo Practitioners). Her strength is precise intuition and she uses the knowledge of several traditions in her work, using Indigenous methods, Meridians, Chakras, Marma Points, TCM and Auricular forms of Kambo therapy where appropriate. In most cases she detects where the energy blockages are and guides her clients towards releasing those.
Her circles are fully held in a sacred space, nurturing and sensitive to individual needs and include Kambo medicine songs, drums and rattles and supportive shamanic practices.
There will be time to discuss further, ask questions and set intentions at the beginning of the ceremony. If you have specific health problems then you may wish to discuss these privately beforehand, If you have serious health issues then you may benefit from more intensive treatments.
In some traditions, Kambo is also taken as a vaccine and is administered as 3 treatments over one moon cycle (29.5 days). The famous vacina da floresta. The most effective way to take Kambo when you’re doing it for the first time seems to be taking the medicine 3 days in a row as resistance drops and you go deeper and deeper each time as your body and mind are already in release mode. If that’s not possible, 3 times in a moon cycle is the way to go. Then you can refresh once a month, every few months or once a year depending on your health status and needs.
Before you sign up, please read the contraindications list. Approaching the workshop you will receive a waiver stating you are fully aware of the contraindications of Kambo and are not experiencing any of these. You will also receive your day of Kambo prep sheet so that you are fully prepped for our ceremony. Taylor is looking forward to supporting you on this journey.
