In 2000 I traveled to Nepal under the tutelage of Larry Peters as part of my studies in shamanic healing. There I met and learned from Aama Bompo. I was blessed to observe this gifted healer in many large and small moments. Formidable as she was in ceremony, I was most impressed by her humility and strength as she patiently worked through the crowds of people, often numbering 100, that gathered at her home each morning. She treated the poorest of the poor as well as the Royal Family of Nepal with equal dedication and respect. It is not necessary to ascribe to or understand the fascinating and complex lineage of her Tamang tradition to benefit from her extraordinary healing gifts.

Aama will be here in Santa Cruz on Tuesday, November 9 and Wednesday, November 10. Rather than make a formal presentation, Aama has graciously offered to perform healings much as she does in her home in Nepal.  This creates a unique opportunity to receive healing and learn more about how shamanic healing happens in Nepal and many other areas of the world. See Details Below.

Aama Bompo has gained international attention as part of the Council of the 13 Indigenous Grandmothers which is, a global alliance of prayer, education and healing for our Mother Earth and all its inhabitants. Born Buddhi Maya Lama but known as Aama Bombo (Mother Shaman), Aama was born in the remote village of Melong, Nepal, 65 years ago. Her father was a renowned local shaman. Despite early indications that she had inherited her father’s shamanic gifts it wasn’t until after his death that his spirits and other gods and spirits started visiting and teaching her to be a shaman, against the prevailing cultural values of Tamang society. Today, Aama has achieved great renown in Nepal.  Patients come to visit her from around the country, as well as from India and Tibet.

When: Tuesday, November 9, Public healing session – 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.  Suggested donation $20.00

Wednesday, November 10, 8:00 a.m. to noon -BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.
