The new, non-profit Tequihua Foundation hosts its first public shamanic
ritual in Southern California on August 5, 2005. The ritual, entitled
Via Sinistrae, uses the ambient electronic music of Trip Tech and
speech by Central American Shaman Koyote to activate creativity and
transform the awareness of participants.
The creative force, known as Kundalini in the East, can induce higher
states of consciousness when properly stimulated. Via Sinistrae may
well be the only ritual available to the Southern California public
that works intentionally with the creative force.
The Tequihua Foundation, a 501(c)(4) educational non-profit, offers Via
Sinistrae as part of its special mission: to revitalize indigenous
Toltec culture, not by preserving its external forms, but by invoking
in contemporary participants the same feelings and atmosphere produced
by the ancient ceremonies. "To do that, we use modern forms and
technologies," explains Shaman Koyote. "Very few do what we are doing."
Koyote, originally from El Salvador, received transmission of the
Toltec lineage from a distinguished Shaman in Mexico. In addition to
possessing Shamanic knowledge, Koyote is an experienced practitioner of
both the Western esoteric tradition and the "fourth way" schools
derived from the Russian mystic Gurdjieff. Trip Tech member and Toltec
Shaman Kyron composes, performs and produced electronica under the
label Black Note Music and is currently enjoying heavy rotation on
Join us on our maiden voyage Via Sinistrae in Riverside. This public
ritual has been an annual event in San Francisco for the past three
years. Public response has brought the event to the Inland Empire for
the first time and will return every other month.
Come and dance the dance of the eternal creative force!
