This Is My HeartQuest

I was born in the city of the Kitu-Kara [the sacred place of the centred sun], a beautiful place very close to the equator and land of the mighty condor.

 

"Growing up in this city of over 2 million people I learned about the negative effects of being disconnected from the natural world, this was the trigger for the awakening of my spirit and the beginning of my journey of rediscovering "what is meaning of being a human living on this beautiful Mother Earth".

"Visions are meant to be manifested,

otherwise, they remain just as dreams’’

MY JOURNEY

At 24,

I travelled by bus to Chile from Ecuador for 5 days, to do my first vision-quest in the traditional indigenous way which consists of going on a mountain for 4 days and 4 nights, remaining in one spot, fasting and praying for a vision.

At 25,

I got married, then moved to Canada in 2005 and decided to establish my home and grow my roots; and two years later I became a dad at 27.

At 29,

during a very magical experience around the sacred fire in a peyote ceremony, I received the spiritual name of "Soniko Waira" which means "the sound of the wind". "Something that not many people know about me is that the name my parents gave me was Sebastian Alban. I used to call myself that way until one of the most powerful initiations I experienced along my Journey, second only to the birth of my first son".

At 30,

my marriage ended and this was the tipping point and catalyst for my own transformation to assume my mission. It was hard, but this experience taught me so many things about myself and about the negative programs that were running my subconscious being at the time.

At 31,

I decided that I wanted to live closer to nature to learn from the first peoples and caretakers of the land, it was then that the traditional chief, descendant of an ancient indigenous tribe called the Sin’ixt and his family opened their home to me, they lent me a tipi and hosted me in their land for a couple of years. There I learned how to live a simple but very fulfilling life.

The year after, at 32

two of my mentors saw the value in a tool that I created to help myself to keep my focus on my path. It was literally a map based on the core teachings of indigenous cosmovision, combined with very powerful mind techniques.

They encouraged me to start sharing this tool with my community, and so I did.

In November of 2012, I offered my first Heart Map Workshop in Nelson BC.

 

The Heart Map is a spiritual tool designed to facilitate a visionary process of self discovery.

In 2013,

I created THE HEART MAP EXPERIENCE website

 

Later, in 2019,

I created and launched my first Virtual Retreat called "The Power of a Seed". This is a practical online experience that will help you map out your sacred vision and plant the seeds for a harmonic holistic life.

If you are ready to co-create a better future for yourself, your family and the world, then I am ready to assist you!

"I will help you connect with the heart-vision that will guide you to your purpose, gaining confidence in your gifts and turning them into a creative force for your life"

For the past decade, I have been offering Heart Map workshops and personal shamanic training, as well as inspirational talks about "the power of a seed", at many different venues and in music festivals in BC, Canada and Quito, Ecuador. 

 

I played and assisted musically in numerous medicine ceremonies and produced and played in a variety of Medicine Music concerts in Canada and Ecuador.

One of my favorite offerings is the Cacao Medicine Music Workshop that is a 4-week virtual experience but also love to hold regular Cacao circles and to play medicine-music at my home-town, in Nelson BC and everywhere I'm invited to.

In 2020,

The whole world went into a massive transformation after a global pandemic, but in magical synchronicity I got myself into one the most powerful shamanic trainings yet.

Right in time, I attracted into my experience the Inca wisdom of the Q'eros through the KAWSAYPACHA School, the first virtual school of oral tradition of its kind, created by Nicolas Pauccar Calcina for the interpretation, development and practice of the Andean Cosmovision to contextualized these teachings into the modern worldviews and contemporary culture.

After two years of training, I became a Hampiq' and received the degree of Misayuq' or Andean priest integrating this amazing knowledge to my medicine bundle.

school of visionary arts and shamanism was born!

This School has the goal to offer a spiritual warrior's path for self-mastery, personal-empowerment and collective development - manifesting the Vision that I received back in 2004 when I was doing my first Vision Quest.

Ever since the awareness of my sacred vision, I had the opportunity to meet and connect with many indigenous elders and wisdom keepers from South, Central and North America and from whom I received powerful teachings, being initiated into the wisdom path as a medicine man who lives and preserves the original teachings from Mother Earth. 

These experiences inspired me to develop my medicine and create a methodology to be able to mentor, teach and train the future generations of magicians wanting to cultivate these Sacred Shamanic Arts.

As a result, I made it my purpose to leave a legacy that contributes to the transformational process of each individual who seeks my help, so we may co-create the most beautiful world we know is possible.

These are the 3 main goals that'll help me measure the success of my  vision.

  1. To create and stablish the first International School of Visionary Arts and Shamanism, dedicated to manifest the Galactic Indigenous Consciousness on Pachamama.

  2. To be known a world-class Indigenous Visionary Artist / Mentor / Teacher - contributing to the expansion of human potential.

  3. To be the caretaker of two large extensions of land, one in Canada and the other in Ecuador, to create the Q'ori Cancha.  A self-sustainable retreat center+temple for the development and practice of these ways of consciousness- building a home for my family and co-creating with YOU, beautiful gathering spaces for our tribe.

This is my story.

For the past couple of decades,

I have been an apprentice of traditional indigenous wisdom-keepers,

learning from different ceremonial ways about energy work with master plants like Peyote, Wachuma, Ayahuasca, Psilosibyn Mushrooms, Yopo & Huilka, 

to understand the magical processes in which healing and transformation can take place, with the purpose to expand my ability to be of service to my fellow human family.

I am a guardian, protector of the Sacred Space of the Heart dedicated to our Spiritual Development and the expansion of human consciousness.
