Itinerary
Rediscover your SELF

"What is the Self? The Self is your bridge to the universe... Like the sun at the center of our solar system, the Self provides you with light, heat, and stability. The capital “S” is there to remind you that this is not the same “self” that appears at the top of your check book; this is not your finite personality. The Self is what connects you with eternity."

 

-from Austin Hill Shaw's The Shoreline of Wonder: On Being Creative

What people are saying...

...about Austin Hill Shaw

Often times people say, "Years from now I will look back on this and ..." That was my experience with Austin. Austin and I connected when I was struggling both with professional and personal struggles...His experiential approach was not only engaging but also effective in getting me to actually "Feel" instead of intellectualize the issues in my life - something I desperately needed.

Vinay G.

New York, New York

Austin emanates compassion, acceptance and a deep desire to help heal. He is an amazing listener and his presence and patience are gifts in themselves. I was able to let my guard down, be vulnerable and experience breakthroughs in just the first session. Austin was a lifeline when I desperately needed one, going above and beyond to help me.

Rosalyn F.

Berkeley, California

I am a professional advertising photographer, and an artist at heart and unleashing my full creative potential is very scary. Austin helped me process deep internal negative thought patterns in a physical way. A process that had me in tears!!! Seeing my insecurities as unresolved past trauma and feeling the freedom to create has been invaluable!

...about Epiphany Shaw

The depth and impact of her work didn't seem obvious at first because it was fun and interesting and I was expecting something heavy and intense. She is a practitioner who far surpasses someone who has solely learned a set of skills. Epiphany is able to truly empathize and her passion and connection for her work far surpass a skill.

John B.

San Rafael, California

There are no word to describe what Epiphany does and how she does it.  I went from having the weight of the world on my shoulders to having perspective! She focuses only on YOU, she never waivers, and the light that she shines is captivating, and if you are having a hard time finding YOUR light, she helps you find it.  She did for me.

Sarah G.

El Granada, California

After my first session I came out a different person than when I went in, the positive impact of one session with Epiphany was better than years of any other therapy I had tried in the past.

...about Javier Regueiro

It was very important for my first experiences with these plant medicines to work with someone who could bridge the ancient wisdom with the modern world. Javier went above and beyond to make sure that each participant in our workshop of 11 people were getting everything we needed as we progressed through our 10 days of intense healing work. I had an incredible experience here and would highly recommend him if are looking to experience the plant medicines with a gifted modern day shaman.

Noah

New York

Javier is a great person with no comparison, I can tell for true. He always knows how to approach people with his charisma, love and compassion. I thank him everyday for the opportunity is has shown me over the years, the learning and the love within myself. The ceremonies with him and Ayahuasca and San Pedro have changed my life.

Katya

Italy

I have known him on the medicine path for almost ten years and would recommend him as a leader of these ceremonies. In addition he is caring and willing to help people both in the ceremony and if they have questions after. I have participated in ceremonies with many other people who lead them, both indigenous leaders in the Amazon, and others. Javier’s ceremonies for me are among the very best.

“People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances with our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.”
