The search for Lisu and Lasu tribes is still going. We get deeper and higher into the mountains. Crossing a road we find a weird sign. You see a geometrical cross with a circle and a piramide inside of it. The bottom of the cross is decorated with feathers. We don’t know what it is but we follow it….
We arrive before a wooden building. It’s surrounded by a garden filled with flowers and plants. There is again a board. It says that you can get healing with sound, acupuncture and some other treatment. Lead by curiosity we go inside. The room smells like some herbs in a pharmacy. Than a woman comes and greets us. We are confused, because she has a white skin. So probably a Farang and not a local Kontai. And yea that’s true. The lady is from Germany.
The woman says that she left her home country, because she had some problems with other pharmacies and therapists. ‘I had my own ideas and methods that are working. But they didn’t like it and tried to suppress me. Because of their own interests of earning money by the other terms. ‘I didn’t like that so I moved to Thailand. To this hideout to find peace and harmony. So I can give the people here a healing treatment. I will show you around.’ So we follow the shaman.
We meet her chillroom, where she makes bracelets and hangs out with her Tiger. (A really nice cat.) Than we walk out of the room to an outdoor hut. She says that’s the meditation room. We see a lot of stones, gems and crystals and also a lot of other ‘magical’ stuff. She let us try some crystals and says that every stone is alive and has his own energy that you can feel when you hold it. I feel something. Something like a beating heart in my hand. But probably it’s my own pulse or something else… She says that she needs to go to finish the treatment to a patient. ‘You can stay here to meditate and enjoy the place if you want.’ So we do.
Meditating and trying out the stones and crystals we are still sceptic about the whole stone is alive thing. But we stay open for it and enjoy our stay. On the other hand we have some time to rest and reflect on our life. When she comes back it’s dark already. I ask her what kind of treatment would be good if you want to ‘find your pure self.’ She says immediately: Ayahuasca. It’s kind of a drug that resets your mind to be open for everything. You can program your mind again. But she says that it’s dangerous when you want to try it alone. ‘You need some good assistent of a shaman.’ We thank her. Say goodbye. And go on the road again.
