645: Hamilton Souther, part 1: Living Among the Matsés in the Peruvian Amazon
This Sustainable Life
Suggest to people in our culture that we consider not growing the GDP nonstop and most react with fear at what they see as the inevitability of recession leading to depression leading to the tax base declining, infrastructure crumbling, hospitals closing, mothers dying in childbirth, thirty become old age, and reverting to the Stone Age.Yet there remain many cultures that don't buy into our culture at all. Despite our culture invading their lands, what many of us consider the pinnacle of human culture, they choose theirs, and not out of ignorance. They know our culture.If our culture is so great, with electric vehicles, fruit flown overnight around the world, and iPhones, why do they resist it?If we believe we have so much, why do we keep taking their land?Hamilton lived among the Matsés in the Peruvian Amazon for 4.5 years. He shares how he arrived there, how they took him in and trained him to be a shaman, and what differences and similarities he saw there compared to here. We talked a bit about ayahuasca, but as I see one of our greatest challenges is to learn to live sustainably, and electric vehicles move don't help, I was more interested in what I and we can learn from people who still leave things better than they found them.Hamilton shares about how they live and the interface with a westerner who lived with them not as a tourist. I found his experience and education fascinating and accessible. Expect more episodes with Hamilton to come. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

Aubrey Marcus Podcast
A prerequisite for shamanic healing is having the ability to create a protected space in which the healing can take place. Maestro Hamilton Souther is a veteran ayahuasquero who has spent decades in the amazon training these specific set of skills. Skills that include both healing and defending the healing space from dissonant or malicious energies. In today’s podcast, we talk about the nature of consciousness, and the imperative of having protective skills when working in depth with plant medicines.

Episode 125: A Hero’s Journey Into Shamanism, Following Our Hearts & Becoming The Creators Of Our Reality (feat. Hamilton Souther)
I imagine that everyone tuning into this episode can relate to the notion that for many of us, we seemingly have many passions that might not feel as though they are connected, yet as we continue to move through our lives, the connections between them begin to become clearer. I know this has been my experience in being interested in psychology, spirituality, plant medicines & health for most of my life & it wasn’t until I began Highly Optimized that I began to see the through line between each of them. Todays guest on the show is a man who shares in this notion of having many passions that may not seem to fit together if you looked at each of them independently, however, actually fit together incredibly well when you look at them all from the unionized perspective that we will be diving in to today in this episode. I first found out about this individual when I discovered his work in shamanism, specifically with Ayahuasca & Cannabis, & was blown away at how many synchronicities we shared specifically in the ways in which we spoke about Cannabis & along with his work as a renowned master shaman, he is also a visionary leader, speaker & author who is the founder of Blue Morpho and Co-Founder of FullStock, LiquidEarth and Landslide. For the immense amount of people who have benefitted as a result of his immense wisdom in these areas, it is clear that he is a pioneer in Amazonian Shamanism, Web3 and NFTs who is linking these realms together in a way that I have yet to come across anywhere else in my travels.Show Notes:(3:25) How Hamilton first got into his field(s) of study.(6:44) Using NFT’s to support creators and creatives. (10:31) Creativity is the SOURCE.(18:05) Creating cannabis shamanism.

Episode 74: Exploring Shamanism & The Path Of A Maestro (feat. Hamilton Souther)
This One Time On Psychedelics
With the ever growing popularity within the plant medicine & psychedelic space, it is imperative that we as individuals who are looking to connect with these medicines do so with the proper guidance & protection. The same way that if you are looking to become a doctor, you must go through an immense amount of schooling & training to ensure you are fit for that service, the same goes within these spaces & I feel it is more important than ever that we ensure that we are learning from these wise elders in the traditions that have been passed down surrounding these medicines for thousands of years to ensure we are safe & protected in these realms. Stopping by the show today to share his immense amount of knowledge, wisdom & experience with each of you today is a man who I not only admire & respect deeply, but is also someone who I feel is bridging the gap between the worlds of plant medicines, psychedelics & spirituality with the world we live in each day. For me, this is something that shows me someone is not only extremely advanced in these realms, but also that they are grounded & able to meet people where they’re at in order for them to feel safe in these spaces & receive maximum benefit from these experiences after they have concluded through integration practices. He is a master shaman & the founder of “Blue Morpho” which is a center dedicated to providing safe, professional plant medicine retreats consisting primarily of Ayahuasca experiences. In addition, he is also a visionary leader, speaker & author & is the co founder of “Fullstock”, “Landslide” & “Liquidearth” & in this episode, we will be exploring his intro to becoming a shaman, what being a shaman has taught him about life, what some of his most profound experiences within the medicine space have been & whatever else the divine wills into action in this incredible heart flow we are embarking upon today.Show Notes:(3:19) How Hamilton first got into plant medicine.(7:18) Near death experiences and what it can teach you.(12:24) Some advice when it comes to shamanism.(16:22) Check out FreedomBuilderz.com! (18:29) Ryan’s advice for men.(20:59) Remembering and honoring our past.(24:40) Opening up to the cosmic yes.(41:14) Getting the call to train and how that process goes.(57:54) Where you can reach Hamilton.(59:04) Hamilton’s final piece of advice for the listeners!Join the Highly Optimized Ceremony Circle on Facebook! https://www.highlyoptimized.me This episode was produced by Mazel Tov Media in Quincy, Massachusetts.

These are unbelievably serious and profound plants that have literally shaped human consciousness over thousands of years and there's a fundamental reason in the Amazon that the true practitioners of the lineages of medicine go through 10 to 15 or even 20 years of apprenticeship. - Hamilton Souther Get 15% off your CURED Nutrition order with the code WELLNESSFORCE ---> Get The Morning 21 System: A simple and powerful 21 minute system designed to give you more energy to let go of old weight and live life well.
