The 14-day Jaguar Odyssey is a full-on spiritual immersion in Dawn of Eden’s modern-day resurrection of the ancient shamanic arts. Participants experience four transformational Ayahuasca ceremonies facilitated by the Jaguar-Shamans in the unique-throughout-the-world Jaguar Temple of Transformation.
“Every ceremony is a divinely orchestrated dance with mystical agents of healing and transformation.”
—Dan Reynolds, Jaguar-Shaman, Dawn of Eden
Time is earmarked in every Odyssey for dialogue with the Jaguar-Shamans. They are reservoirs of knowledge regarding their contemporary resurrection of ancient shamanic arts. The Egyptian deities bestowed their blessings along with special “gifts and abilities” for these shamans to revive the vestiges of time-honored ‘old-school’ shamanism.. Dan and Denis serve as between-world mediators of a high-order—ambassadors of the divine in a holy undertaking. Their deified human/spirit collaboration is known as The Dawn of Eden Project, and they are honored to impart their comprehension of this celestially-inspired initiative.
Monday: [Arrival Day] Participants are picked up at the Iquitos airport upon arrival of their morning flight and transported to our center. After check in, participants receive a tour of the sanctuary. Refreshments are served before lunch during a welcome orientation held in the Jaguar Temple of Transformation. Participants typically rest in their rooms, prior to our evening meal to recover from their International flight.
Tuesday: [Ceremony Day] An overview of the Jaguar-Odyssey’s ceremonial protocols will follow breakfast. After lunch, the Jaguar-Shamans will conduct private intake-interviews. Participants are encouraged to share their personal intentions and goals regarding the Odyssey. Later in the afternoon, room rest will be encouraged in preparation for the evening ceremony. This is an excellent time for meditation and/or yoga for those so inclined, and a nap prior to ceremony is ideal. Participants gather in the Jaguar Temple of Transformation one hour prior to ceremony.
Wednesday: [Rest & Integration Day] Participants will meet following breakfast to discuss the opening ceremony. The Jaguar-Shamans will provide insights, and participants are free to share their personal experiences. After lunch, we visit the Dawn on the Amazon Cafe to savor their fabulous fruit juices and appreciate their scenic overlook of the river. After returning to the center most participants will prefer to retire to their rooms shortly after dinner to accelerate their rest and recovery process.
Thursday: [Rest & Integration Day] Following breakfast, interested parties may dialogue with the Jaguar-Shamans. An outing is planned after lunch to visit the Belén Market—a bustling open-air market that sells everything under the sun. A highlight the Pasaje Paquito— a vendor-isle—which features jungle medicines, exotic plant remedies, and an endless variety of tonics and elixirs for healing, rejuvenating, and energizing the body [we don’t recommend items sold for consumption).
Friday: [Ceremony Day] Following breakfast, interested parties may dialogue with the Jaguar-Shamans. Room rest is again encouraged following lunch in preparation for the evening ceremony. Participants gather in the Jaguar Temple of Transformation one hour prior to ceremony.
Saturday: [Rest & Integration Day] Participants will meet following breakfast to discuss the second ceremony. Today, lunch will take place outside the center at the Dawn on the Amazon Cafe. This fun outing allows participants another opportunity to explore the Boulevard along with the Plaza de Armas, and surrounding area.
Sunday: [Rest & Integration Day] A super rest day. Following breakfast, interested parties may dialogue with the Jaguar-Shamans. After lunch, participants have free time to spend as they prefer in and around the center. Some might enjoy a walk to the nearby Plaza de Munich. Others may prefer to visit Dawn of Eden’s Internet café next to the center. Still others may prefer some additional “alone” time to rest in their rooms, etc.
Second Monday: [Rest & Integration Day] Today’s laid-back itinerary includes a relaxing 20-minute river boat excursion to the nearby village of Padre Cocha to visit the Pilpintuwasi Butterfly Farm. This conservation and breeding center for Amazonian butterflies (including the Blue Morpho) is also a rescue center and animal orphanage for a number of exotic animals.
Second Tuesday: [Ceremony Day] Following breakfast, interested parties may dialogue with the Jaguar-Shamans. After lunch, many will enjoy conversation with other participants throughout the afternoon with an eye toward allowing themselves some rest time in preparation for the Odyssey’s third ceremony. Participants will gather in the Jaguar Temple of Transformation one hour prior to ceremony.
Second Wednesday: [Rest & Integration Day] Participants will meet following breakfast to discuss what transpired in the third ceremony. Rest and recovery are on the agenda. Consequently, after lunch we’ll pursue another relaxing afternoon relishing Amazon fruit juices; this time at La Casa Fitzcarraldo. This off-the-beaten-track venue features a charming jungle-garden atmosphere and an extraordinary tree-house of colossal proportions (there’s a pool if you care to bring a swim suit).
Second Thursday: [Rest & Integration Day] Following breakfast, interested parties may dialogue with the Jaguar-Shamans. An outing is scheduled after lunch to a rainforest zoo called Quistacocha. The zoo features many animals indigenous to the Amazon Basin: alligators, dolphins, tapirs, pumas, jaguars, monkeys, anacondas and other snakes, along with macaws and various other birds native to the Amazon. The Quistacocha complex includes a lake, and a beach called Tunchi Playa [bring a swim suit if you like].
Second Friday: [Ceremony Day] The Jaguar-Odyssey is in the home stretch. Following breakfast, interested parties may dialogue with the Jaguar-Shamans. As usual, following lunch, rest is recommended prior to ceremony. Participants gather in the Jaguar Temple of Transformation one hour prior to the Odyssey’s closing ceremony.
Second Saturday: [Rest & Integration Day] An integration meeting will follow breakfast to discuss what transpired in the fourth (and closing) ceremony of the Jaguar-Odyssey. A celebratory “Odyssey Graduation” lunch will take place at the Dawn on the Amazon Cafe today, and participants will enjoy one final dinner together at the Dawn of Eden center.
Second Sunday: [Departure Day] Participants will be transported to the Iquitos airport after breakfast (or breakfast and lunch) depending upon their flight’s departure time.
