How to prepare Bobinsana?
Bobinsana powder tea is made by taking 5g per serving worth of bark powder and boiling it for 10-15 minutes. This is how it is prepared when being used in shamanic plant dietas if it is not going to be consumed as a paste or a tincture.
In our Bobinsana guide, we have a section dedicated on how to prepare bobinsana paste, honey, tincture and tea.
What is a Bobinsana Dieta?
Bobinsana might be the #1 most famous and loved of all the Amazon master plant teachers that are used in shamanic dietas. She is world famous and people travel to the Amazon just to communicate with her in her natural environment.
A Bobinsana Dieta in the absolute most traditional sense involves the participant (in the jungle) going into a little hut or yurt in isolation. They see nobody and participate in no worldly activities, and cannot consume any media including books. There is to be no internet, radio, TV etc. Every day, a shaman who is facilitating the dieta will come visit the participant and give them a daily dose of fresh bobinsana paste or tea and bland generic food like unsalted cassava. The participant will spend their extended time in isolation devoted to prayer and mediation, taking naps and baths. Sometimes a dieta will involve drinking ayahuasca with the shaman at the beginning and end of the period.
During this time, the participant is aiming to build a relationship with the “plant spirit” of Bobinsana. Every plant has a personality, and when we consume the plants their personality becomes embodied in us. For psychoactive plants that personality is very obvious, for example, smoking cannabis gets you high. That is the personality of the cannabis taking over your own personality and becoming embodied within you. You must be able to frame the thoughts that come to you under the influence as not your own, but rather those of the plant speaking through you.
For rainforest plants that are considered the master plants of the Amazon, such as Bobinsana, the voice of the plant spirit is much more subtle. Drinking Bobinsana paste on a regular day will not get you high, and likely will not even alter your mind noticeably at all. You must realize that this is because you must build up the skill of learning how to listen for the voice of the plant. By avoiding salt and all flavor and all media and mental noise you are making your mind into a blank canvas through which the Bobinsana can paint a picture of her entire being in your mind. During this period of fasting and meditation during your isolation dieta, your aim is to absorb all of her teachings into your physical being and she will permanently change the constitution of your body. Think of it like a software patch download from the internet in order to upgrade your body into gaining a deeper understanding of love and joy.
Here are a few selected quotes from Bobinsana dietas:
I was shocked. Only 2 nights into my self-guided Bobinsana dieta at home I was having dreams full of pink flowers and cute girls. It was was like every night I would go to bed and be guaranteed this fantasy love dreamscape as long as I was very strict about my daytime activities of what I would do and consume in the surface world.
