Born in Israel and left the conventional path at a young age to pursue a higher state of existence, Vismay has lived and studied in India for 6 years before meeting the great plant teacher Ayahuasca and moving to Brazil to go deep into the medicine world. \After 6 years of study, the call arrived to share the knowledge and magic and since 2006 Vismay has been facilitating ceremonies around the world, creating the Sound of Light global circle. With over 20 years, 1000 ceremonies worth of experience and a passion for the sacred healing sound, Vismay bridges the Synergy between the Shaman and the Yogi, where the fire of the soul meets the astral realms.
Vismay and Nicole were then called to start serving the medicine in Israel in 2006, hosting over a hundred ceremonies. Together they decided to bring their family, studies, vision and service back to the jungle; where Ayahuasca calls its home. In 2009 they moved with their children to the forest of Costa Rica and with the help of many, a medicine community was established. They continue to grow and cook the medicine plants, practicing Karma Yoga and following the path of human development.
