Αt a glance What is this about? Would you like to awaken and strengthen your desire to Live fully, rather than to be alive? Body Dearmoring can be a valuable help here. Video → Body Armor is a result from painful, restrictive or intimidating experiences, where we contract on a physical and cellular level as well as in our psyche. As these contractions cumulate, they start to form bands of armor inside the tissue of the body.Within these bands of armor, we hold patterns of fear, withdrawal and avoidance, most often leading to a sensation of inadequacy and unnaturalness. Armor restricts the free flowing of our life force, it impacts our health, vitality and sexuality, creates stress and blocks our access to our higher self and our evolution: Evolution is based on expansion; armor keeps us in a constant state of contraction. Body Dearmoring also known as Shamanic Dearmoring is a deeply holistic and transformative process for body and soul, which only requires two weeks (!) of your time. What are the Benefits of Body Dearmoring, when the armor is gone?

Origins of the Knowledge and the Ceremony On the American continent (South and North), the tradition of Twisted Hairs goes back thousands of years. At the time of the Central American high cultures, the so-called “rattlesnake school” existed as a forerunner of the Twisted Hairs Society, which had its ceremonial centres mainly in Mexico, Guatemala and Peru (today, several ruined cities still bear witness to the culture of that time).The Twisted Hair were and are shamans, men and women, who in addition to the traditional knowledge of their own traditions and cultures, also integrated knowledge from other societies, which they acquired in their travels across the continent. Thus, they tested the practical knowledge and wove it into a school of enlightenment of their own that has existed in an unbroken lineage for many centuries. Like other schools of power, the Twisted Hairs decided in the late 1970s to open their knowledge to a larger collective. This ceremonial path, which since then is also accessible to us, is on the one hand a school of awakening to oneself and to life, and on the other hand a path of human reintegration into nature and the cosmos. The knowledge of this universal alchemy, of which we are a part of, invites for personal ceremonial development and deeper shamanic experiences. The apprentice on this path not only seeks self-awareness, but uses mental and ceremonial knowledge to change into higher alignment with him/herself and the universe. The experience of larger spaces ultimately allows one to truly develop and live one’s potential in connection with the greater. In the Twisted Hairs tradition, knowledge is preserved and imparted in the form of wheels and keys. This cyclical and non-linear thinking allows deep access to the understanding of larger connections within as well as outside of space and time, and invites us to experience the wheel of life in a new way: there is no beginning and no end, only the form of energy and our points of view change. Birth and death are just two stations on the wheel of life, which turns and changes forever. Energy is eternal and indestructible, but the forms energy can take are subject to certain laws. Knowing different wheels allows us, in addition to understanding broader spaces, to live, grow and stay in the flow of life according to natural laws and energy changes. In the Body DeArmoring Retreat, besides experiencing the ancient ceremony of Dearmoring, you will learn many teachings from the tradition of the Twisted Hairs, as well as experience and enjoy various powerful ceremonies that allow profound changes in our being.
