    AYAHUASCA CEREMONY
     
    From the depths of the Amazon, the Ayahuasca is part of Peruvian Amazonian traditions; An ancient medicine, an ancient ritual that is capable of producing knowledge and healing for those who participate in it. An encounter with Ayahuasca, is without fear of exaggeration, the most enriching experience you have in life, is the re-initialization as a living being in this world.
     
    Its meaning in Quechua translates as "The Rope of the Spirits" since in the worldview of native peoples, the liana or vine of ayahuasca is the rope that allows the spirit to leave the body without it dying. Ayahuasca is part of traditional Amazonian medicine and its use points to self-healing, since the indigenous tribes consider that the origin of the diseases lies in spiritual imbalance.

    What is ayahuasca?
    Ayahuasca is part of the so-called master plants, it is a teacher known as "mother" because as a mother, she is hard with her teaching but she does it with love and for your good. Ayahuasca is a millennial concoction ritually used by shamans, healers or Ayahuasca masters of the Amazonian ethnic groups (Shipibo, Matshiguenka, Yine, among others) for more than five thousand years, as a way to obtain the expansion of consciousness.

     

    The ayahuasca concoction is prepared from the decoction of two Amazonian plants (pharmacologically active):

     

    The Ayahuasca vine (Banisteriopsis caapi) and the shrub called Chacruna (Psychotria viridis), which are crushed and cooked in boiling water for up to 16 hours. DMT (diemetryltryptamine) is a tryptamine alkaloid, which is responsible for dreams in the phase of unconscious rest, it is also responsible for lucid dreams. The body is said to only release DMT at birth and at death. There are two stages that are worth underlining of this experience, the imminent and tangible one, that happens during the seven hours after taking it, that is, that awakening and dying at the same time. The later is the one of the work of every day after taking it.

     

    A MILLENNIAL RITE CONSECRATED BY SHAMANES
    Ayahuasca has been the answer to healing and spiritual life in the great Amazon basin since time immemorial, the shamans of the Amazonian ethnic groups are in charge of performing these ceremonies and thus achieve knowledge of wisdom and healing.

     

    The first step to face this experience is to be willing and perceptive that the teaching will come from another side. Teaching begins before the night of the ceremony and medicine continues indefinitely in time. The previous teaching begins with the changes in eating habits (it is better to stick to the guidelines if you want to avoid a bad time with the plant in the ceremony). Some shamans will ask to do a month of previous diet, and others a week; but the common goal of the diet is to purify your body and that the physical shock of taking Ayahuasca is not so stormy. The concoction purges and cleanses you, so the more contaminated your body is, the more it will feel the jolt of the purge.

     

    The diet is basically the following: do not eat red meat and the last two days it is suggested to avoid the intake of derivatives of any animal, do not eat processed foods, or irritants such as spicy or coffee, no alcohol, no recreational or pharmaceutical drugs, no dairy , no sex, rest the three days before the ceremony and maintain the diet the three days after for best results.

     

    All those who take ayahuasca go with a purpose; Your intention may be to discover ways in the present, open doors to travel other future paths, overcome past trauma, overcome addictions, unwanted behaviors or have a spiritual experience among other things. Although it is not specific, they all carry a change of habit by the hand, whether it is going to be the catalyst for greater learning or that it is only a side effect.

     

    The ritual begins when the shaman enters the ceremonial center, while the participants sit on the ground in a circle. A ceremony that can last 7 hours in which the shaman is the figure in charge of attending those attending the ceremony. The shaman sets his table, takes out his instruments, and instructs on the ceremony. When to ask for another dose of the medicine, keep silent and do not disturb the other participants as it is a very strong personal experience; soon it happens to take the concoction, it is the decisive moment, there is no turning back.

     

    Ayahuasca has the consistency of a sour-tasting juice; Little by little, the participants began to connect to another dimension. The transformation is silent to the rhythm of different instruments and icaros (ritual songs that invoke the spirit of Pachamama), the soul of each one is present in a mystical experience of connection with the universe. The ceremony goes on, the icaros guide and the sound of vomiting echoes. One by one, everyone will start to vomit, feeling an alien sensation that was taking over you, the darkness is deeper, soon you feel its energy deposit on you. An important part of the experience is the control it offers. The shaman approaches, one by one, to do a clean. Ayahuasca teaches a lesson in humility, of being just a microscopic being in the universal scheme. It is a rebirth, it is pushing the capacities of the brain to the limits. Finishing the ceremony in the blink of an eye, just like hitting, that's how you land. You come back exhausted, it's like having run a spiritual marathon; however physically you are like new and you could go to do a triathlon.

     

    Probably ayahuasca is not for everyone, you have to be willing to delve into the depths of your unconscious and have a powerful and long spiritual experience. But when you go fearless and willing. It is a life changing experience. Ayahuasca does not give you what you want, but what you need, it strengthens your existential intelligence. You become time and space, you die and are reborn, you are not afraid of death, you have a desire for life.

     

    CULTURAL HERITAGE OF THE PERUVIAN NATION
    In Peru, the traditional knowledge and uses of this plant were declared Cultural Heritage of the Nation, stressing that its effects are contrary to those produced by hallucinogens. The effects of its consumption constitute the entrance to the spiritual world and its secrets. A traditional Amazonian medicine has been structured around ritual. Its use and its results are necessary for all members of Amazonian societies ", they conclude (National Institute of Culture).
