‘Sound, Patterning and Resonance’ a talk by Tanya Harris, June 23 @ 3 pm

The Shipibo people are an ancient tribe who live in the Amazon rainforest in Peru. They still practice their spiritual customs and traditions after thousands of years. In the last forty years, there has been a continual rise in people’s interest in tradi- tional indigenous cultures that engage with the unseen forces of nature and altered states of consciousness. ‘ Look deep into nature then you will understand everything better’ – Einstein.

In the Amazon, hunters can smell urine at forty paces and tell you what species left it behind. The taxonomy of Amazonian shamans is remarkable when they begin to characterize and systematize creation. They can consistently distinguish different plants at great distance. You ask a shaman what the foundation of their taxonomy is and they say, ‘Well, the plants talk to us’. To our rational mind, it is nonsense to think that plants can talk. Yet, it is only nonsense because it does not fit in our paradigm. When we consider the possibility that different society’s belief systems create different levels of perceptions but also different realities, what does that say to you?

Sulmira is a Shipibo shaman, whose name means grounded bright shining light. It is custom for Shipibo people to ingest thousands of different plants, flowers and trees that induces an altered state of consciousness. Ayahausca is an entheogen and master plant in Shipibo culture. They have the intention to connect with the spirit of each plant while living in isolation for 2-6 months and eating a very simple diet. Sulmira spoke to me about a plant called Marosa, which taught her about love and protection. This plant has a feminine vibration, she continues. ‘Each plant has a different personality just like people. People will receive differ- ent messages from each plant depending on how they get on.’

Shipibo shamans receive healing songs or ‘icaros’ from the plants while there are in a trance after ingesting the plant. They use these songs as healing tools in aya-hausca ceremonies. Icaros are then translated into geometric colourful tapestries, which embody the healing messages of the icaros.

Nothing is really solid. Everything is connected; we are constantly moving within a vibrational matrix. There is consciousness in all living things. Consciousness communicates continuously by vibrations of electromagnetic frequencies. Earth is alive and holds the knowledge that we seek, our state of consciousness affects what Earth reveals.

To Fight Alongside Friends – a talk by Gerry Harrison June 3rd @ 7:30

Charlie May Family image    Charlie May Image
Charlie May is Gerry’s great- or grand-uncle, whose war diaries were discovered in an attic. These are now published as TO FIGHT ALONGSIDE FRIENDS in hardback and paperback by Harper Collins, and have received great reviews. Charlie was killed on the first day of the Battle of the Somme, the centenary of which will take place on 1 July.

Gerry Harrison was born in India and grew up in England and Ireland. His formative years were spent in London during the “Swinging 60s”, where he was first an actor and then chose a career in the TV and Film industry. It was as a producer he started to write, published at first in newspapers and magazines.

He and his wife came to Clare in 2007, enjoying the tranquillity here compared to the pace of London. With a long ambition to run a bookshop he opened Banner Books in Ennistymon, and is now delighted to see Jessie Lendennie’s Salmon Publishing at the same premises in Parliament Street.

Gerry has written one previous book, about postwar Irish emigration to London, called ”The Scattering”, which was published in 2004, and is now completing a biography.
