About Nixiwaka

Nixiwaka (59) is a South African-born facilitator, currently living in Costa Rica. He has twenty-five years of experience with ceremonies in various contexts, influenced mainly by his experiences with African, Brasilian, and Native American shamanism. Combining his experience with these traditions he creates a strong group focus in the ceremony and the opportunity for the creative expression of newness, invoked by dedication, innovation, empathy, and respect for the ceremonial origins.

The practice of ‘Communal shamanism‘ is central to the structure of Nixiwakas medicine circle. Searching beyond the boundaries of the known and keeping shamanism ‘in the moment’, within the expanding universe.

“I dedicate myself to the service of humanity as a practitioner of the art and science of Natural and Integrated Medicine. I continue to show honor and respect to those that came before me, and will continue to grow and preserve this knowledge to the best of my ability. Through education and practice, I will inform patients and the world at large of the value of taking charge of their own health. Through precept, lecture, and example, I will assist and encourage others to strengthen their health, reduce risks for disease and preserve the health of our planet for ourselves, our families, and future generations.

According to my best ability and judgment, I will use methods of treatment that follow the principles of Natural and Integrated medicine: First of all, do no harm. To act in cooperation with the Healing Power of Nature. To address the fundamental causes of disease. To heal the whole person through individualized treatment. To teach the principles of healthy living and preventative medicine.

I will abstain from voluntary acts of injustice and corruption. I will keep confidential whatever I am privileged to witness, whether professionally or privately that should not be divulged. With my whole heart, I pledge to remain true to this oath.”
