FIRE FIGHTER CYCLE
The Huichol tribe live in a sacred place where one can experience a true Shaman. They are only a small tribe of approximately 35,000 living in central western Mexico near Ixtlan in the Sierra Madre Mountains. They believe in what I believe is we are part of the universe it creates and controls our destiny. They are said to be the last tribe in North America to have maintained their pre-Columbian traditions. Their shamans and healers practice today as they have for generations. In part, their survival is due to the focus of their traditions, as well as their remote mountainous territory. I chose these Shamans as The Huichol say we are created from the elements of the natural world- fire, air, water and earth. Because of this, each of us is a miniature universe, a mirror of both the natural and the spiritual worlds. All the knowledge and secrets of these two worlds are inside of us and everything is perfectly arranged. Shamanism teaches us to tap into that arrangement, to understand and to live in harmony with the natural and spiritual worlds.
The best place to meet a Shaman is on top of a mountain you climbed.
