Lorna Liana

Deep in the heart of the Brazilian Amazon, Lorna "Liana" Li discovered her purpose and her divine calling while drinking visionary plant medicines with indigenous shamans. She was given a mission:

“To leverage emerging technologies to preserve indigenous traditions, so that ancient wisdom can benefit the modern world, and technology can empower indigenous people.”

In pursuit of this mission, Lorna became a new media strategist to sustainable brands, social ventures and visionary entrepreneurs, helping them attract their tribe and ignite a movement around their mission-driven businesses. Through podcasting, video blogging and social media, she shares the stories of both indigenous people and the world’s foremost experts in psychedelic science, modern shamanism, and consciousness research to inspire each and every one of us to explore the depths of our minds, spirits, planet…and evolve.

She has spent the past 20 years exploring shamanism, spirituality, and expanded states of consciousness through meditation, breathwork, and visionary medicines. She spent 3 years in a Tibetan meditation center, participated in 100+ ayahuasca ceremonies, and spends extended time in the restricted areas of the Brazilian Amazon as a guest of indigenous tribes.

Lorna created this course to address a growing concern around the use of visionary plant medicines, especially by Western participants. Traditional indigenous societies engaged in practices to prepare for and integrate experiences with psychoactive plant medicines, within a framework of support by the community, shamans, and elders.

With the explosion of interest in the West, coupled with inadequate preparation and integration, there is an alarming phenomenon of Westerners emerging from shamanic experiences worse than when they started.
