“Jend“, “Jendar“, “Jendan” are three way to call a specific object of a Shamanic subculture called Uramai. It’s origin is from Eastern Europe and it happened to survive through history even if it’s legacy hasn’t been transmitted like all the major shamanic traditions everybody know (and maybe that’s why I wanted to learn this instead of any other thing you can learn from weird shamanic schools).
I realized it exists in Ibiza while hosting Tibetan Monks in one of my friends Ayurvedic Center. The monk wasn’t really as old as a master can appear in common imagination, we had only a few years of difference. I was working with my Shamanic Sunsets and Group Meditations while the monks where in a “Gira” (an official visit) making consultations, events and blessings.
Tibetan Monks are quite famous for their wisdom and they like the strange Featherless Shaman giving his clients the option of experimenting spiritual awareness without the heavy (and usually quite useful to people taking money from it) burden of “belief”. When I was explaining to him the The Invisible Ghost Experience we began to share ideas and in the end we came to the agreement the he would have taught me how to create a Jendar and give me one I still treasure today asking me in return to improve my manual skills to be able to create my own and then get back to him. And now, finally, with woodcarving I reached the point where I can begin forging these artifacts keeping in my mind the wonderful teaching this monk gave to me.
Jendar isn’t a magical object or a ritual tool, it’s an Art and a Craft used though a Shamanic Channeling magnifying lens and applied to an unique meaning to be merged into something that has to be kept away from the world. It’s a spiritually and symbolically charged artifact whose function is specific and usually requires months to create. It’s not like anything you can buy in a shop, or something you can create for yourself only. Jendar’s purpose is to consolidate a deep spiritual meaning into an artifact, bringing a secret to material plane, and a technique so little people in the world know about that this is the first time in three years I ever talked about it and only because finally I can begin to create them.
Being a Jendist, or Jendarist is not something you can learn in a weekend, a month or six months, or by reading books, it’s a 3 year legacy so serious that I can only call myself a beginner after all this time. My first Jendars and the only ones that I will make public for now as they were created partially imbued with these purpose are they are “Dragòn del Cielo y Dragòn de la Tierra” (which I will post in a few days).
This section and all the Jendars created from now on will be password protected as I will only give access to trustful people that could understand the essence of this art and that could not mistake it with cheap magick, or some noob and simple minded traps.
I will be available of creating Jendars from today, so if you want to contact me and ask for the password just write to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be happy to answer you.
In the meantime as I’m so happy I finally completed my formation accept the idea of a shamanic blessing to your day if you shared with me this post and this moment of joy and celebration. 🙂
