‘’Visions are meant to be manifested, 
otherwise, they remain just as dreams’’
- Soniko Waira - 
I was born in the city of the Kitu-Kara [the sacred place of the centred sun],
a beautiful place very closed to the equator and land of the mighty condor.

"Growing up in this city of over 2 million people I learned about the negative effects of being disconnected from the natural world, this was the trigger for the awakening of my spirit and the beginning of my journey of discovering what it means to be a human being living on this Earth".
My Journey:

At 24, I travelled by bus to Chile from Ecuador for 5 days, to do my first vision-quest in the traditional indigenous way which consists of going on a mountain for 4 days and 4 nights, remaining in one spot, fasting and praying for a vision.

At 25, I got married, then moved to Canada in 2005 and decided to establish my home and grow my roots; and two years later I became a dad at 27.  

At 29, during a very magical experience around the sacred fire in a peyote ceremony, I received the spiritual name of "Soniko Waira" which means "the sound of the wind". "Something that not many people know about me is that the name my parents gave me was Sebastian Alban. I used to call myself that way until one of the most powerful initiations I experienced along my Journey, second only to the birth of my first son".

At 30, my marriage ended and this was the tipping point and catalyst for my own transformation to assume my mission. It was hard, but this experience taught me so many things about myself and about the negative programs that were running my subconscious being at the time.

In 2011, I decided that I wanted to live closer to nature to learn from the first peoples and caretakers of the land, it was then that the traditional chief, descendant of an ancient indigenous tribe called the Sin’ixt and his family opened their home to me, they lent me a tipi and hosted me in their land for a couple of years. There I learned how lived a very simple but very fulfilling life.

The year after, two of my mentors saw something valuable in a tool that I created to help myself keep my focus on my path. It was literally a map based on the core teachings of indigenous cosmovisions, combined with very powerful mind techniques and they encouraged me to start sharing this tool with my community, and so I did.

This is a spiritual tool designed to facilitate a visionary process, I call it the Heart Map. I did my first Heart Map Workshop in Nelson, BC in November of 2012 

If you are ready to envision how to improve the quality of life for you and your community, you can count on me to provide you with powerful transformational experiences when it comes to Vision-Quest.

I am a specialist in Vision-Quest and Self-Empowerment for Collective-Development; 
my accomplishments include:

My training:

In 2004,  I went to a sacred mountain in Chile to do my first big quest in the Condor Blancoa leadership school for personal development and modern shamanism. There I received the vision that guides my journey. 

Ever since that spiritual awakening, I have been a student of indigenous spirituality, discovering, nourishing and empowering my own medicine.

I received the guidance, mentorship and teachings of different indigenous elders and wisdom keepers from many places in the Americas; initiated on different Andean and Turtle Island lineages.

In 2011, together with my spiritual name, I was recognized as a Kokopelli or "seed-carrier" by my teachers and mentors, and by the people that I serve.

I am also a self-taught musician, sound healer and music producer.

Work History:

I have extensive experience working with master plants and traditional ceremonies and I've been a space holder and master of ceremonies since 2012. 

I have been offering Heart Map workshops and training, as well as inspirational talks about "the power of a seed", at music festivals in BC, Canada and Quito, Ecuador. 

I played and assisted musically in numerous medicine ceremonies and produced and played in a variety of Medicine Music concerts in Canada and Ecuador.

I hold regular full moon Cacao circles together with my partner at my home-town, in Nelson BC. 

I am a recording/performing-artist of medicine music, Sound healer, Motivational Speaker and a dedicated Father.

I will help you connect with the heart-vision that will guide you to your purpose, gaining confidence in your gifts and turning them into a creative force for your life. 

If you are ready to co-create a better future for yourself, your family and the world, then I can definitely help you!
