Maestro Hamilton Souther - The Journey Of A Shaman In Peru

Maestro Shaman Hamilton Souther is the founder of the Blue Morpho Ayahausca and Shamanism Center in Peru. Hamilton spent over a decade living in the rainforests of Peru studying the way of the shaman. He’s the founder of Blue Morpho Tours, an Ayahuasca-based Peruvian retreat organization, and his new endeavor, the U.S.-based White Morpho. Over the last 12 years, he has guided thousands of participants into shamanic states of consciousness and has transformed shamanism into an accessible spiritual modality for westerners. Within that development, Hamilton has been able to heal westerners of depression, anxiety, drug addiction, and PTSD. His ceremonies also help people find their deepest purposes and goals in life.

Lance Essihos

As an experienced veteran with adversity, Lance has faced some of life's most difficult challenges. Grinding his way through the hockey ranks to traveling the world as a bartender. Through his personal battle with drugs and alcohol for well over a decade, the tragic loss of his brother to suicide followed by the great loss of his father to cancer only a year later, Lance realized he had hit rock bottom. In the darkest of days, he made a promise to himself that he would create a new life, one that would make an impact and inspire the masses, leaving the world in a better place than he found it. Lance has made it his mission to facilitate the message of positive change through adversity and encourage people to see the light through the darkness of life's worst moments.
