Huachuma is a cactus from the Andes Mountains, also known as “Medicine of The Four Winds”. It was also baptized as Saint Peter by a priest at the time of European colonization, as it is believed that this plant offers the keys that open the doors of heaven.
We will review the health benefits of this natural medicine and use it to facilitate our connection with the Apus (energies of the mountains), to increase our state of presence, attention and concentration, and thereby enjoy the best and only time of our lives: the present moment

Psychoactive mushrooms have been used in religious ceremonies around the world for millennia. In Algeria and Spain, for example, pictograms more than 6,000 years old found on murals and rock paintings, illustrate various mushrooms of these species native to the region.
Modern research on psychoactive mushrooms reveals that most participants perceive mystical experiences with benefits that last for months and bring increase in life satisfaction and a sense of deep well-being with high personal significance.
The ceremonial consumption of this sacred species is focused on discovering, understanding, and strengthening our instincts and, thus, harnessing and incorporating the intelligence that they possess in our daily lives.

Santa María is our favorite name for the plant species known as Cannabis or Marijuana, as this power plant has been used in religious, shamanic or spiritual contexts for over 2,500 years from the Pamir Mountains in Central and Southeast Asia, to the Indian subcontinent during the Vedic period of 1500-2000 BC. This plant has also influenced Greek mythology, which has described it as a powerful remedy for anguish and pain.
From a scientific perspective, medical research is supporting the use of cannabis to ameliorate many symptoms and diseases.
During our program “Santa Maria: Universal Panacea” we explain the importance of its medicinal and ritual use within a healthy rhythm, a safe context, setting the right intention, and combining its use with creativity, meditation, physical practices, visualization, mantra recitation, prayers, reading mystical poetry, forest bathing or ceremonies around the Sacred Fire.

The presence of cocoa in human civilizations is quite ancient, and given its tremendous importance, in the days of the Mayans and the Aztecs it was used as currency of exchange.
Cocoa is a gentle and loving plant that supports you and subtly invites you to browse and investigate your emotions.
During our cocoa programs, we learn about its history, religious, spiritual benefits, nutritional value and, together, we combine its wisdom with ancient and modern practices for healing and self-growth.
Peyote is a small medicinal cactus native to northwestern Mexico, that has been associated with the strength of the desert, especially the Sierra Madre Occidental, the Chihuahuan desert and the southwestern United States.
The oldest evidence of Peyote consumption was found in Rio Grande, Texas, with specimens dating between 3780 and 3660 BC, indicating a consumption that goes back more than 5000 years, by the natives of North America, for ritual and medicinal use; promoting spirituality and the cure of various inflammatory and painful conditions. In Mexico, Peyote is guarded by the Huichol people who wander through the desert and travel the Wirikuta path, which is linked to the sacred spirit of this powerful plant.
In the same way, during our “Blue Dear Hikuri” program of pilgrimage through the deserts, we are guided by the ancestral Nagual and Tonal knowledge to obtain improvement of our emotional states, greater physical resistance, strength and healing.
