Hello, I am Silvana Zamara, a Peruvian born Medicine Woman, Mama, Reiki Master, Shamanic Practitioner, Channel & Medium, and Energy Medicine Specialist living in Southern California. Since a very young age I was one of those children who could see beyond what we traditionally see and could hear all sorts of "spirits." I was always very intrigued by my indigenous roots and loved everything natural. I began studying alternative healing at just 19 years old as I was fascinated by natural ways of healing and knew I had a gift of some sort but at the same time wanted to heal years of childhood and adolescent mental health issues. Traditional counseling didn't work for me, and I refused to start a life depending on pharmaceuticals for depression, insomnia, anxiety and panic attack disorder that I had developed. So I began studying massage, aromatherapy, herbalism and art in my early 20s, and in my late 20s and early 30s studied reiki, yoga, holistic nutrition, expressive arts therapy and shamanism. Lots of shamanism. In California and in my country of Peru.
As I dove deep into the world of shamanism and indigenous Peruvian healing (my native country's ancestral healing traditions,) I began to feel much healing and release from some childhood trauma and overall anxiety. However, after my daughter was born in 2016, I had a deep, intense spiritual experience for a total of 4 months and all my suppressed memories of childhood sexual trauma came to the surface. These were terrifying memories I had dissociated from but were the culprits of years of mental health issues. At the same time as the resurfacing of these painful memories, I was going through some major life changes. I was a mess and I needed help. I intuitively knew that everything I had studied had led me to that point, to burst, or to what mystical traditions call a Shamanic Awakening or Death. It is when you die of everything you thought you were and are reborn to the real you.
While these experiences were immensely healing, I was still very shaken to have my world turn upside down. I will never forget the day a friend suggested I smoke some "weed." And so I did. Cannabis, and later on CBD, helped me sleep, function, and easily access my inner world for continuous healing. It also helped me cope with intense changes and brought people to my life that were incredibly knowledgeable about Cannabis Medicine. My life truly did change, and continues to do so in inexplicable, sometimes hard, but beautiful ways. The Cannabis family of plants helped me and continues to help me heal, it helps me connect spiritually in ways I didn't think possible. It helped me open my heart to devoting my life to a path of healing...of being a healer and working from a place of truth and compassion.
I started making custom CBD products for my alternative healing clients (and still do) based out of a need I was seeing of in-home care. The reviews I was receiving were very positive and motivated me to start a small apothecary line of CBD infused products that you can now order through this website, through social media, and through selected retailers. I formulated each product with the greatest of intentions: to spread healing where ever it is needed. And if you can't come see me personally, then at least you are getting a little bottle of healing at your home. Each product is made without artificial ingredients, no names you can't pronounce, and sourcing only from the medicine nature offers. They are all soy-free, gluten-free, and 100% vegan. They are made with my indigenous training and background of working with nature: with the utmost respect for our Mother Earth and all her inhabitants.
So whether you come for a healing session, buy an apothecary product, or come to one of my ceremonies, know that this is my life's work. My mission. And I will heal all those who come my way with the tools Life has handed my way.
