Sacred Medicine Ceremonies
Throughout history, aboriginal people have discovered a great healing power in plants. Whether it be for physical, mental or spiritual ailments, Mother Earth is a living and powerful pharmacy.
The sacraments that we share are the San Pedro or Aguacoya (originally from the mountain) medicine as well as Ayahuasca or Yage (originally from the jungle.) Although science has examined the active components and named it, mescaline or DMT, we respectively believe that it’s important to clarify that these medicines are not drugs, nor should they be used recreationally. With that said, they carry out a profound process of structural changes in the ways we perceive ourselves, and all who surround us.
These (medicines) contain the power of the sacred spirit of the plant, which offer healing and knowledge to those who take it in a sacred way (this way being, ceremonial, honoring and recognizing its presence.)
In recent times, the sacred altars, which have been guarded by Indigenous people, have began to rise.
There are many places and people who say they know these ancestral practices, and truth be said there are many people who do, but there are also those who take advantage of these medicines to fool and profit from others.
We work on the foundation with respect to the family, this means that we live and act according to the conviction of the power and importance of the presence of women within our family circle. Honoring her sacred feminine energy, and taking care of this energy with respect to her integrity: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
The ceremony takes place with all of us joined together in a circle around the fire, or laid down in hammocks, depending on the medicine, which we honor according to the traditional and sacred way, passed down by the grandparents of the ancestral communities. We honor the memory and legacy which comes from several native communities throughout the Americas (North and South.)
The ceremony occurs during the night or day depending on the medicine and its healing purpose, and takes 12 hours.
Those who participate should bring with them a personal purpose, to open the doors of healing in a sacred space.
For this reason, it´s mandatory to make a personal consultation previously, so you can better clarify your doubts and give in to the healing process with confidence and certainty. Also, so you can have a more clear purpose to why you are here.
We offer kind of ceremonies:
GROUP CEREMONIES: These are previously fixed and have a maximum capacity of 15 people.
PRIVATE CEREMONIES: These are scheduled by the person or couple who wants to have a more intimate and personal encounter, and thus work in depth topics of a private nature.
We offer one or two sacred medicine ceremonies per week. If you are interested please contact us to set up a consultation with Dr. Johnathan Flores (Medical doctor specialized in Ancestral Medicine)
Temazcal (Sweat Lodge)
Originally, this traditional ceremony was practiced by the Native People of Central America and Mesoamerica, and it is considered to be the most ancient ceremony on earth.
The sweat lodge invites us to reconnect with our own essence by healing and freeing our minds from bindings of the past.
Upon entering the sweat lodge, we enter Mother Earth´s womb, later coming out clean and renewed. This is the reason for why it is considered to be the ceremony of rebirth.
At the same time the participants can relive memories of being in their mother´s womb. And through this way, recognize the origin of their traumas to heal them from the root.
The ceremony consists of four rounds, each round marked by the entering of red-hot volcanic stones into the pit or “inipi”. The cleaning process is begun thanks to the steam that comes from the contact of the water poured on the stones. Also in this ceremony every element is aligned with the energetic diagram of the cardinal points: air, water, fire, earth.
The entire process is led by a medicine man, or shaman, who guides and supports each and every one of the participants.
