INTROSPECTION AND HEALING
AWARENESS AND KNOWLEDGE
Since prehistoric times the human being, in his quest for knowledge and the expansion of consciousness, has used sacred or entheogenic plants. Our Mother Earth has put these plants in different places throughout the world. Latin America is home to several, but two that hold particular use in our ceremonies.
The Peyote (Lophophora williamsii) is a cactus native to Mexico and the southern part of the United States. It is used by different indigenous nations of these regions; Huicholes, Tarahumaras, Mexicas, Navajos and Lakotas, to name a few. It is their sacred plant that governs their spiritual lives. They also use it traditionally as a vaccine and to fight different diseases.
The Ayahuasca (Banisteriopsis caapi) is a native liana, a type of climbing vine from the Amazon used by different tribes and indigenous nations of the South - namely in Ecuador, Brazil, Colombia, Peru, Bolivia and other countries in South America. For these indigenous peoples, Ayahuasca is the most sacred and venerated of all their medicines because it is what teaches them to live well, to fight different diseases and serves as the vaccine for children and adults.
With the guidance of our teachers, we have raised and rescued this millennial indigenous wisdom to assist and help our people.
In our ceremonies we take these medicinal Sacraments safely and with great respect, always with a well-defined purpose.
The purpose always revolves around health, well-being, healing, awakening, knowledge, responsibility with oneself, and other intentions meant to uplift the self or the collective in order to serve the greater good.
This does not mean that if we take these medicinal plants, all of our problems will be solved.Rather, this medicine helps us take responsibility for ourselves so that we can make the necessary adjustments in our lives.
