PRODUCTS WE LIKE
We are often asked which products we like. For your convenience, we have listed some of the products we know and like, from brands we trust.
In the world of plants, some are used for sacred and ceremonial purposes, to explore the spirit world. The use of these plants derives from native cultures, whose members have traditionally sought access to the supra-normal through the ingestion of the plants and their preparations.
Natural aphrodisiacs can revitalize sexual performance and pleasure, promote sex drive and endurance, and enhance sex life and satisfaction for both men and women. They're safe, have no side effects, and they work. As a noted expert, Chris is often quoted on the subject.
An adaptogen is a botanical that greatly improves your body's ability to adapt to stress, whether it's a hectic schedule, heat or cold, noise, high altitudes or any number of other stressors. This elite class of herbs impart strength, energy, stamina, endurance, and improve mental clarity.
We love Cocoa! After water, cocoa is the single healthiest substance you can put in your mouth. Did you know that Cocoa is a Medicinal Plant, a Sacred plant, a Hot Plant, and a Psychoactive Plant?
Natural Pain Relief
Got Pain? You can relieve pain and do so naturally and safely. Natural, plant-based remedies are the most widely employed medicines on earth, more than over-the-counter and prescription drugs.
Some plants simply loom larger than others, and do more for more people. In this section we identify plants that are of especially high health value, and give you more information on those plants and their uses.
Yoga, Shamanism & The Five Tibetans
Chris Kilham’s unique voice is a result of forty-one years of daily yoga practice, eighteen years of working with the shamans of South America, and regular daily practice of The Five Tibetans. The lines between yoga and shamanism are blurry at best. Any deep involvement with yoga also includes the knowledge and use of medicinal plants. Just as yoga travels, so does the use of beneficial plants from all around the globe, including the Amazon.
The shamans shown here on this web site are and have been part of my own journey of discovery.
Yoga & Meditation
Chris has been a long-time speaker and presenter on yoga and meditation, at venues across the USA.
The Five Tibetans
Visit our book page for information about the new edition of Chris’ popular yoga classic. Namaste.

Witchi Tia To
Recently, Chris made one of his appearances on The Dr Oz Show. The producers asked him to chant as part of a longevity program and he chose Jim Pepper's Witchi Tia To to sing on air. After the show aired, requests poured in from all directions. What are the words to the song? Where can I get that tune? Witchi Tia To struck a chord with The Dr Oz Show viewers. Realizing that there was an opportunity to provide people with a fresh new version of Witchi Tia To, we got together with the members of Blue Streak to record the song. We offer this version of Witchi Tia To with great joy and pleasure. We hope this song will inspire you as it inspires us.
