"Why Shamanism Now?" with Christina Pratt
Healing in the Amazon with Roman Hanis: Part One
The Amazonian rainforest is home to a system of healing and plant medicines as vast, intricate, and effective as Chinese Medicine or Western naturopathy. Our guest, medicine man, Roman Hanis, is committed to the integration of this ancient wisdom into practical application in our modern world. Through Paititi Institute and its team of shamans, permaculture specialists, and practitioners of other healing arts Roman is building intercultural bridges for the healing on physical, emotional and spiritual levels of all people from all cultures and from all spiritual traditions and walks of life. Join us this week and host and shaman, Christina Pratt, speak with Roman how with holistic models of education, consciousness transformation and indigenous sacred plant medicine we help support the formation and existence of intentional communities who seek the social and environmental lifestyle development supported by spiritual evolution and maturation on both collective and individual levels.
This week's guest:
After finding a cure for a terminal, genetic illness in 2002 in the healing forms of the rainforest, Roman Hanis spent the next ten years working with indigenous Peruvian cultures in the Amazonian rainforest, learning the ancient healing ways while seeking possibilities for creating ecological sources of sustenance for local populations and working to preserve the rainforest and its spiritual heritage of sacred medicinal plants. Roman looks forward to eradicating suffering in the world and its cause - ignorance - by promoting education on the possibilities of more sustainable, harmonious relationships with nature, and to simultaneously create supportive, self-sustaining and nurturing communities.
Roman is a certified Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practitioner in Peru. He is also a practitioner of the Eastern spiritual disciplines of Tibetan breathwork and meditation, QiGong, Yoga, Shaolin physical therapy and Toltec practices as well as the perspective of these disciplines from Jungian psychology. In 2004, Roman was pledged as a healer-curandero by the Whitoto tribe and has served the international community as a medicine man ever since. He has also practiced physical trauma rehabilitation, medical massage therapy and Eastern bodywork. With these tools and concentrated efforts, he has been able to help numerous individuals overcome many health issues and pathologies on physical, mental and spiritual levels.
