Quito EC

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’’


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, focusing my energy and my attention in the things that are important to me.

Music has been an essential part of my life since I can remember. When I was living in Ecuador, I was on a path to becoming a professional musician, recording two albums in a genre that combined psychedelic progressive metal rock.


However, my journey took me to a new land and a new life, and I began to explore music in a more profound and healing way.


In November 2012, I released my first medicine music album called "SONIC WIND", which made it clear to me that from that point on I wanted to play music to elevate the vibration of those who listen to it, helping them to open their hearts and be present in the moment.


Music is not just a passion for me; it is a means of expression, healing, and connection with others.

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.


Also in November of 2012, I assumed my role as a teacher and 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 and I had the opportunity to facilitate many amazing workshops and hold sacred space for both individuals and groups in Ecuador and Canada.


It has been an honor to share my knowledge and wisdom with those who have come seeking guidance, healing, and connection with their higher selves. Each experience has been unique and has allowed me to witness the profound transformation that can occur when one opens themselves up to the spiritual realm.

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' or Andean priest and received the degree of Pampamisayuq' integrating this amazing knowledge to my medicine bundle.

school of Shamanic Arts was born!

The VisionaryTRiBE is a unique and innovative platform that offers shamanic training and self-empowerment programs to individuals and communities.

At VisionaryTRiBE, our mission is to contribute to the manifestation of the Galactic Indigenous Consciousness through education and creating a community of conscious individuals who share this vision. 


We believe that by sharing the ancient wisdom of indigenous cultures and integrating it with modern knowledge, we can contribute to the expansion of human consciousness and create a world where people prioritize the wellbeing of themselves and the collective. 


Our ultimate prayer is for the future generations to inherit a world that is in balance, harmony, and respect for all beings and the Earth. 

Through our teachings and community, we strive to inspire individuals to become agents of positive change in their communities and in the world.

In March 21, 2023 my shamanic mentoring program started with the first group.

The Chakana Quest is a metaphysical time-space created for the cultivation of your spiritual, mental, emotional and biological aspects of your being" and it's dedicated for the development and interpretation of ancient shamanic teachings that will lead you to a harmonious balanced life, in your own way!

The journey includes weekly virtual training and teachings shared in an oral traditions style, sacred ceremonies, mystical encounters, and challenging physical experiences that aim to help participants release limiting beliefs and connect with their inner power. Throughout the quest, participants are guided by experienced teachers and shamans who share their knowledge of Andean culture and help them navigate the challenges of the journey.


The Chakana Quest is a deeply transformational experience that invites participants to rediscover their connection with nature, expand their consciousness, and awaken their inner potential. 

Would you be interested in CONSCIOUSLY TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE for the better?

This School of Shamanic Arts has the main goal to offer a spiritual warrior's training for self-empowerment and collective development.


The VisionaryTRiBE is the manifestation of a Vision that I received back in 2004 while I was doing my first Vision Quest.

Ever since this awareness, I had the opportunity to meet and connect with many indigenous elders and wisdom keepers from South, Central and North America; from whom I received powerful teachings and initiations as a Medicine Man who lives and preserves the original teachings from Mother Earth. 

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

As a result of these amazing experiences living my sacred vision, I made it my purpose to leave a legacy that contributes to the rebirth of humanity and the transformational process of each individual who seeks for my help. To co-create together,  the most beautiful world we know is possible.

These are the 3 main goals that are the pillars of my sacred vision.

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

  2. To be known as 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 Kancha. 


These are self-sustainable retreat centers + temples for the development and practice of these ways of consciousness.


It's also my family's home where we co-create with YOU a 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 & Willka, 

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.

My Offerings
and sacred expressions of my being

"Every gift that I've been cultivating my whole life".


All my life I have been inspired to create art and now I use it for the creation of different magick elements and tools that can be used to assist different shamanic processes.



The Heart Map Experience is my life's mission when it comes to contributing to the co-creation of a more harmonic, inspiring dream for the individual and the collective.



Music is my prayer and the way I express my being from the center of my heart.



Currently, I have a few different modalities of energy/shamanic work that I can offer to your service.

These journeys include master plants and also intercultural experiences, learning from traditional indigenous wisdom keepers.


This is just the beginning of our magical co-creation
