The doorway: Nierika

Journey toward the doorway this year. Shed the itch of old skin, the clouds of delusion and illusion. When you arrive, walk through the door, gradually and then suddenly.

Nierka

“There is a doorway within our minds that usually remains hidden and secret until the time of death.  The Huichol word for it is nierika.  Nierika is a cosmic portway or interface between so-called ordinary and non ordinary realities.  It is a passageway and at the same time a barrier between worlds.”

–Prem Das, “Huichol Nierikaya: Journey to the Realm of the Gods.”
