Tigresa (the “tigress”); and Reyna D’Assia, daughter of the famed religious instructor G. I. Gurdjieff. different vital wisewomen on Jodorowsky’s religious course contain María Sabina, the priestess of the sacred mushrooms; the healer Pachita; and the Chilean singer Violeta Parra. the lessons of those girls enabled him to discard the emotional armor that used to be hindering his development at the direction of non secular information and enlightenment.
