Araretama Essencias Narurais Ltd., Brazil
An Educator in essence and action and an innovative consultant for these new times, Sandra Epstein has the experience and ability to implement creative solutions that establish cooperation and balance amidst diversity.
This comes from her extensive research on the biological intelligence of the Atlantic Rainforest in Brazil, a living example of cooperation with respect for differences between species. The principles and wisdom embodied by this forest are urgently needed, if humanity is to truly evolve and thrive.
Based on these principles and wisdom, where creativity, flexibility, empathy and responsibility are the vortex of a healthy society, she has developed multifaceted work and offerings. Her company, Ararȇtama, brings together her research on flowers and plants through a special line of vibrational essences and cosmetics and a range of integrative educational projects.
Rainforest Wisdom offers us a model on how to transform amidst diversity through creative cooperation
As a species, we are instinctively oriented to separate ourselves from others that are different in race and culture. The very opposite happens in the Atlantic Rainforest: plants come together and it is through their differences that they build a whole tapestry of life, weaving a complex web that supports creative survival and abundance.
In this moment in history, when the pillars of the current model of society are being deeply questioned, this forest is a legacy of wisdom. Its wisdom is present inside the Araretama vibrational essences, as well as in the Araretama educational platform.
Rainforest wisdom gave birth to Araretama education
The Araretama System, a Therapeutic and Educational Platform, brings forth Sandra Epstein’s research on the Brazilian Atlantic Rainforest. Through her studies, she developed a whole paradigm to collaborate with the creation of a new planetary culture using the biological social behaviors from plants, as an example of collaboration for humanity’s evolution.
In the past 15 years, along with the research, Sandra put together and formatted this System and prepared its programs for entrepreneurs, companies, groups of women, groups seeking self- knowledge, educational and social work groups. Its methodology contemplates the integration of our instinctive, emotional and intellectual expressions, as well as the three ecologies: we improve as an individual on a daily basis, taking care of our internal biodiversity; we refine our relations and seek good quality levels of affection, contributing somehow with the community in projects, volunteering work, and becoming role models for what we believe in.
An Intelectual part of this three ecology-methodology, as Araretama presents it, has also been incorporated by Bea Benkova, and is present in her programs at the GIFEW Institute, a platform made to converge different systems and create a new planetary culture.
Araretama educational system includes vibrational essences. Why is more effective to grow with them?
They are bio-imprints and can be understood in quantum biology and neuroscience. Inside the essences is matrix information that works with our emotions. The use of the essences is important because they help our limitations to become flexible, which is fundamental for new developments. They help to access the instinct level, which is where we concentrate our selfishness, fear to share, wish to maintain the comfort zone, because it is linked to our biological behaviour of separation and hierarchy. Araretama essences touch this dimension, and teach us to consciously choose a different instinctive model, as the Rainforest does.
Araretama essences are made from huge ancestral trees, bush flowers, bromeliads, orchids, aerial roots, lichens, and mushrooms from the Atlantic Rainforest in Brazil. They can be used to balance emotional difficulties, as well as to open up new potential and awaken talents and new perceptions for self-development. They do not present biochemical elements – despite water and alcohol to preserve the water – and can be used at any age, correctly following the instructions. They do not substitute for any doctors or medicine, and shall be used as complementary practice for the emotional dimension.
Through them, the forest teaches us to reach and understand our inner biodiversity: what happens inside us, our dichotomies, and how to handle them.
Araretama Educational System offers several original programs for personal grow and essences are always included:
Mandala Araretama – to become flexible in behavior and develop empathy;
Masters of Success – to find our talents, passion and to direct them to the right way;
Wealth Mandala – to become active and begin to build our dreams;
Wise Wo-Man – to understand and develop our 3 ecologies;
Secrets of Life – to develop our creativity
many others programs which are as a merge of ancestral and rainforest wisdom (7 subtle bodies; shamanic archetypes; the 13 clan mothers; Tantric Goddesses)
Sandra Epstein creates also Bespoke Lines of essences – Extraordinary Line for Bea Benkova coaching and mentoring programs; TREND-I – program for the company vision, its directors and employees to maintain their focus; synergy self-management model.
All different lines of essences carry inside the biological wisdom of communion from the Atlantic Rainforest of Brazil. They all maintain the same quality and the difference is that Bespoke Lines contain specific flowers and plants directed to their purpose.
What is your connection to the Institute? Why do you resonate with the intention of the Institute (GIFEW)?
The vision of the Institute truly expresses Sandra’s purpose. Being the voice of the vibration of the Brazilian Atlantic Rainforest, Sandra co-created the Institute and it’s curriculum, merging the principles and wisdom gained on her life-long journey of creativity and discovery - the journey of empathy.
Sandra lives in Brazil with her son.
