Tortuga Duguetia macrophylla, Tortuga caspi (Tor-too-ga)
Sometimes we get wrapped up with all our commitments to the outside world and we forget to connect with our inner world, where our serenity and true wisdom lies. It’s important to create balance between our inner and outer worlds to live a harmonious life, learning how to take care of our emotional and physical needs. The head medicine spirit of this tree is a giant land tortoise. The energy of the tortoise is patient, balanced and productive. Connect to this tree to learn the wisdom of the tortoise in that slowing down and being calm is more conducive to a productive and happy lifestyle. The colour associated with this essence is a light brown colour symbolising the protective nature of the tortoise shell. This colour is unifying and earthy.
Each essence has been prepared with its own medicine song, an icaro. Icaros are a form of communication between the shaman and the spirit world. The icaro is used to set the healing intention and to ask the tree for assistance. Each essence has been uniquely created by choosing certain qualities of each tree and calling forth its medicine with the icaro.

Tortuga is A M A Z I N G . Its like having Thomas Jefferson Isaac Newton and Merlin in your energy system at the same time. The pacing is so perfect. It reminds me a bit of ajos sacha but less abstract. It totally interweaves with and informs this tantric energy work i do too. But everywhere i put my consciousness, guess what was the reply?
And it surged forward. Like spreading butter to the edge of the crusts of your bread. It fills all space.
Day 1 felt mildy integrated like a voice of reason inside me. Day 2, I awoke up with an explanation of how fibonnaci sequence expands beyond the structure of the tortuga plant and to all created things and expands into other algorythms than fibonacci. As i watched this explanation, the energy moved inside me towards my relationships, interests, problems, etc and each was revealed as an expression of these algorythms. At the same time the pacing was slow like an elderly grandfather lovingly explaining these things....mind blown.
Why is no one talking about this? Its like the same vibe as the afterglow of an aya ceremony. Flowing understanding of all things on a deeply personal level. Total perfection.
