Healing & Tinctures Books & Poems Wands & Crafts Art as Therapy Reiki Training ABOUT KUBI MAY ​ As a little girl I was always in awe of the magic buzzing beneath the very tapestry of existence and spent a lot of my time out in nature, making potions from crushed herbs & flowers (and calling it play). I was lucky to have a father who could point me in the right direction to learn about spirituality and we had a huge collection of esoteric books in our home for me to sneak off with and study, as soon as I was old enough to read. Still, I was a restless and rebellious teen, and soon quit college to save up, break free and see the world. My global travels humbled me and taught me how magic and ritual had manifested in different indigenous cultures worldwide. I came back home after a couple of years, thankfully a more mature and grounded individual and made the decision to serve the path of the great spirit. I began my journey by training to become a Reiki healer (and eventually teacher), with a mission to bring as much healing, light and joy to this planet as possible. By my twenties, I had a PGCE qualification as a secondary school art teacher and had finished my University Degree; a BA Honours in Creative Therapies where I focused my dissertation on the healing power of Creative Ritual and art in Psychotherapy. Following this, I worked for 5 years as a Creative therapy practitioner as part of an Intensive intervention Team for Children in Social Care, whilst also founding and managing London's Activist Art group 'The People's Tribe' to try and promote positive change in society with creativity (and of course, rebellion!) As I approached my thirties, I began to delve deep into my own shadow work and healing, which lead me to explore the healing potential of plant medicines, shamanic rituals and developed a love of tincture making. One summer, I left the city and challenged myself to set off at sunset for a lone overnight pilgrimage, where I walked 12 hours through the night, singing songs to the stars. I arrived at sunrise on the mystical lands of Glastonbury for the first time, where I began my training in Shamanism.... and never left! ​I'm lucky to live a harmonious and gentle life here upon the mystical lands of Avalon; the heart chakra of the world and Celtic homeland of the Druids. It's on this sacred motherland, where I forage and make flower tincture medicines from the earth and sculpt personalised wands from the fallen branches of the ancient orchards. More than anything, I love to compassionately and playfully hold space for others walking the sacred path of initiation or undertaking healing/ shadow work. (We're at a very interesting moment in history where nothing is more important than this!) I do this using therapy, ritual, ceremony and creativity to help alchemise and empower individuals to step into the highest version of themselves and it brings me so much joy to see the light returning, one by one, to the beautiful tribe we know as the human race. Let's rise together and remember who we really are as we make the journey back home to ourselves! I look forward to walking this sacred path alongside you :) To read more about my offerings, workshops, retreats and handmade crafts please explore this website or to check out my reviews, click here . ​ CONTACT KUBI MAY For all general questions, bookings, podcasts, interviews, collaborations etc please text me on: 07986460011 (for the fastest response). ​ For everything else please email me at: kubimay@gmail.com ​ Subscribe and join the Tribe for free to get exclusive updates about my Esoteric Retreats (for Tribe members only) Your Email: Join The Tribe Thanks for subscribing!

  • Plant Medicine Ceremony | kubimay

    The Vine with a Soul Micro-dosing & Ceremony Looking for a natural, legal and gentle way to support your mental health or deepen your connection to spirit, without doing an intense trip? I'm honoured to be able to hold a group initiation ceremony in Glastonbury once a month, for those who want to explore working with the spirit of Ayahuasca in a micro-dose extract - Banisteriopsis Caapi (the legal part of Ayahuasca and the part believed to carry the actual soul essence or spirit of Ayahuasca)... We'll begin the ceremony in a gorgeous candle lit space within the Glastonbury Goddess House (though the ceremony is for both men and women despite its name of course!) Here, we'll come together to make our alter- an indoor nature mandala- which is a beautiful offering to show our gratitude and give something back to mother Earth. You'll have a chance to ask questions and be given advice about what you can expect when you begin working with the extract. Following this, we'll each pick an Oracle card, set healing intentions as part of a talking stick share and cast anything we wish to let go of to the fire as part of a healing ritual. Finally, I'll be offering a guided shamanic drum journey with sung light codes and a meditation to connect us with the spirit of this sacred plant medicine. You’ll then receive a bottle of 3 months worth (10 ml) of Banisteriopsis Caapi extract/ B.Caapi to take home for therapeutic micro dosing purposes, where you'll begin walking the path with the spirit of this magical Earth Mother. Having started this as a group, you’ll all be invited to come back for a free integration ceremony 3 months later to share your reflections and any wisdom gleaned, closing your healing journey all together. ​ WHAT ARE THE HEALTH BENEFITS? Health studies and reports have suggested that B. Caapi can promote wellbeing and feelings of calm inner peace, improve levels of empathy, relieve anxiety and depression, and even improves motor symptoms and problems found in Parkinson’s disease. Studies on rats have found that it also decreased inflammation and helped to promote stem cell repair and neurogenesis in the brain. Other people have reported sleeping better, improved awareness, focus and presence. Though it's important to note, (as with many plant medicines) that this extract is not FDA approved for any medicinal, cosmetic, dietary, or supplemental use, nor approved to cure or prevent any diseases. ​ ​ ​ HOW WILL I FEEL? Of course, everyone is a unique individual and so everyone will have their own unique experiences whilst journeying with Caapi. Many people report feeling a greater sense of gratitude and connection to nature, appreciation for the beauty of life, and a better connection to the loving presence of spirit. You may find that you have a lot of useful realisations about yourself and can look at things with a whole new and wiser perspective. It can be a good time for setting new habits or inspiring you to start a new chapter of your life/ helping you to move on. Those who might have previously been feeling lost, may suddenly realise they know which way they want to go. For many, B. Caapi also brings them more earthy grounding and yet also more joy and energy, more zest for life. Though it isn't hallucinogenic, some people experience vivid dreams full of meaningful symbolism too whilst taking B.Caapi. ​ IS IT SAFE TO DRIVE AFTER THE CEREMONY? ​ The physical effects of B.Caapi are so discrete that it should be fine to operate machinery and drive without any concerns. However, it's always best to err on the side of caution for your first few days taking the extract to see how your body responds, and so I would advise that you walk to/from the ceremony or take a bus. ​ ​ ​ HOW DOES IT COMPARE TO A FULL AYAHUASCA EXPERIENCE? While some people might enjoy the 6 hour visual blast off into the 12 dimensions that a DMT based Ayahuasca ceremony invokes, for many others that might not be their cup of tea! In fact, the idea of losing control like that might be terrifying for some. Instead, micro-dosing with B. Caapi offers the same healing realisations and mental health break throughs but gradually and without any of the visuals or physical purges. Some people feel a slight and very subtle energetic or positive mood shift about 15 minutes after taking the drops, but nothing significant enough to change the way they function normal day to day tasks. Despite having very subtle effects physically, many people find the overall depth of emotional healing is just as significant compared to the big ceremonies they've sat through with DMT based Ayahuasca. In many ways, microdosing B.Caapi gives us an opportunity to truly invite the Spirit of Ayahuasca to walk gently alongside us on our healing journey for a prolonged period of time, instead of a quick, intense, 6 hour trip. Thus, we give ourselves more time to slow the process down and to really listen and process what she has to teach us. ​ WHAT ACTUALLY IS CAAPI? Banisteriopsis Caapi is a large tropical vine which grows in South America. It's known among the indigenous peoples of the Amazon rainforest as 'the vine with a soul', a sacred plant teacher and is believed to hold the spirit of Ayahuasca within it. The major components in Banisteriopsis caapi are B-carboline alkaloids (such as Harmine, harmaline, and tetrahydroharmin), which are alkaloids with MAOI type properties. Banisteriopsis caapi is also rich in antioxidants, proanthocyanidins, epicatechin and procyanidin B2. ​ IS IT LEGAL IN THE UK? ​ Although B. Caapi is 50% of the brew which makes up Ayahuasca (which is a hallucinogenic brew made from two plants mixed together), it does not include the other illegal plant (Psychotria Viridis) which is banned due to its psychoactive composition (DMT). Because B.Caapi is classed as a non psychoactive substance, it is classed as legal in the UK as long as it's taken by itself. ​ HOW IS IT MADE AND SOURCED? ​ The plant extract you'll receive is 100% B.Caapi and sourced from the Peruvian region of the Amazon rainforest by the safe keepers of the jungle, who monitor the harvest and make sure new vines are planted to maintain the plant species. The vine is harvested on the full moon then prayed over and blessed by the plant gatherers. The harvest is then sent to California where the drops are made from the vine with a distilled water extraction method and bottled as a plant extract liquid. Finally, they are sent to me here in Glastonbury. ​ ​ ​ HOW DO I TAKE THE EXTRACT? The way we're working with the plant kingdom is forever changing and as the demand for healing with plant medicine increases, so should our approach to work mindfully with our plant allies. For this reason, I deeply advocate micro dosing instead of consuming large amounts. It's believed that the spirit behind each plant will work with us just as powerfully when invited into the body, even when consumed in extreme moderation. In many ways it feels like a more respectful (and sustainable) approach to working with such sacred plants . For this reason, the dose i'll be recommending for you is 3 drops per day (0.16ml) in the morning followed by a short meditation. This is to be taken under the tongue, 5 days a week (with a 2 day break) for 3 months. It's believed the mind takes 3 months to re-wire and form new brain pathways, beliefs and habits, which works perfectly in alignment with the course of micro-dosing this extract. It can also be really helpful to keep a dream diary and journal any thoughts / realisations which arise during this time. ​ ​ IS THERE ANYONE WHO SHOULDN'T HAVE CAAPI? ​ Only adults over the age of 18 should be taking this extract. Banisteriopsis caapi is a natural MAO inhibitor and should not be taken while taking or while coming off from any MAO or SSR inhibitors, antidepressants, anti-anxiety, anti-psychotic, sleeping medications, any supplements or herbs that contain MAOIs or SSRIs. Blood pressure medications should also be avoided when micro-dosing Banisteriopsis Caapi since it can lower blood pressure. Please always exercise caution and consult your doctor before you use this plant extract. Additionally, please avoid caffeine, alcohol, drugs and meat (ideally) when working with this (or indeed any) sacred plant extract. This extract should not be taken by anyone breastfeeding or pregnant. Please consult your doctor before taking if you have allergies or if you or someone in your family has a mental health diagnosis / personality disorder. ​ ​ HOW MUCH DOES IT COST? ​ Tickets are £57 per person and include... ​ - Your Initiation Ceremony , which starts at 6pm on your chosen date and ends between 8 and 8.30pm. ​ - Your 10 ml bottle / 3 month supply of Banisteriopsis Caapi extract. ​ - Your Closing / Integration Ceremony in 3 months time (see available dates- integration ceremonies start at 8.30pm on the same day as the Initiation Ceremonies and end by 10pm. You don't need to book in for this one). ​ ​ WHAT CEREMONY DATES ARE AVAILABLE? All initiation ceremonies are 6pm-8/8.30pm and are held at the Goddess House. ​ Tues July 26th Tues August 30th Tues Sept 27th Tues Oct 25th Tues Nov 29th Tues Dec 20th ​ ​ HOW DO I BOOK? ​ If you feel called to join a Caapi ceremony, tickets can be found here. ​ Please note: By purchasing a ticket, you are agreeing that you have read and understood all of the information above and take full liability over your health and wellbeing.
