Four Visions began with the vision of building opportunity, sharing culture, and spreading a little more love in the World. Together, we have opened new doors connecting the Western Mind with Amazonian Soul Medicine.
We are honored to source high quality made in prayer medicines for our community. We are committed to being your ally, acting as a bridge to over 15 amazonian tribes, sharing their traditions with you. We operate in a beyond fair trade model, where 50% of the proceeds of your purchase goes directly to the tribes, artisans, and healers that we partner with. On top of this, we donate 10% of profits to our partner nonprofit, Movement for Amazonian Growth & Indigenous Cultures (Magic Fund) or other Amazonian organizations with missions that are aligned with our values.
Each tool we bring to the market is handcrafted or wild harvested in sacred prayer and love. You are receiving spiritual medicine, tools and art you can rely on. Our artisans weave, make, mold and craft while holding the prayers of their traditions; as taught to them by their ancestors.
Welcome to our worldwide Four Visions Market Tribe. A small, family run initiative blessed by Indigenous elders and backed by dozens of Indigenous communities throughout the Amazon.
We are committed to bridging your front door with the Amazonian spiritual tools your path requires. Together, we are building a thriving economy for indigenous communities and a flourishing future for our children and wisdom keepers.
The elders and indigenous artists who we work with have repeatedly made it clear that the time has come to help bring the medicines out of the jungle. We believe that we have arrived at a time in humanity’s evolution when the healing traditions of the Indigenous people are exactly what we as humanity need to evolve and heal and to be able to live in greater love & harmony with all beings & with our Earth Mother. Thank you so much for joining us on this journey. May the Love of Your Creator Always Shine Upon you.

Shipibo Weavers of Pucallpa: Florencia, Robertina, Lucila, & Lydia
We are honored to partner with four Shipibo weavers, two grandmothers and two daughters. Florencia, Lucila, Robertina, & Lydia, along with their families, are guardians of the millennia old traditions of the Shipibo Weaving Cultures. They are keepers of the ancestral weavings & the icaros (or prayer chants) of their culture, which they embed into each of their tapestries in tremendous devotion to the plants.
For the Amazonian Wisdom Cultures, weaving is considered a pillar in the spiritual path. A pillar in the sense that it is a pathway to God. Through the art of weaving, Grandmothers pass on to their granddaughters (and sometimes their grandsons) the mysteries of the web of life, and the ancient art of utilizing the force of Creation to crystallize prayers into reality.

Vivian Vanessa & Taller Aluna
Vivian Vanesa Garcia is the visionary behind Taller Aluna and the head of our feather fan arts collective. After living 5 years in the Sierra Nevada of Santa Marta and working with the Kogi, Arsarian and Kankuamo communities, drastic and very synchronistic changes transformed her life. In feather art she found the path of the northern tradition through the chichimeca warrior dance and the Native American Church ceremonies, which opened her memory of her yagé initiations at 16 years of age. Giving thanks to the Grandmothers and Grandfathers, she has walked the red road since 2001, hand in hand with the dance of the sun, the teepee, the the inipi (sweat lodge) and the vision quest ceremonies where she has received from her teachers some knowledge about weaving and art with feathers. Through research and empirical exploration through personal experiences, Vanesa creates art made in prayer. She created Taller Aluna Collective in 2006 where she teaches & manages a collective of about 5 other women, the majority of them young mother weavers. Taler Aluna produces our mambé spoons & jars, earrings, & of course, our feather fans.
