Plant Medicine Wachuma Ceremony
We have the honor to invite you to a Wachuma ceremony with Grandmother Wachuma/ San Pedro. This Wachuma Ceremony has us feeling very grateful to share a sacred ceremony with Grandmother, humbled by her healing and teachings, connection with inner and outer landscapes and her grounding energies.
The Wachuma cactus (Trichocereus pachanoi), also known as Huachuma or San Pedro, has perhaps the longest history of use of any plant medicines in South America. Its ceremonial use dates back almost 3,500 years and its traditions continue today. The cactus contains a number of alkaloids, including mescaline, which is also a key visionary component in Peyote, the cactus medicine long-used by Native Americans in the Native American Church.
Wachuma is a “high vibration” plant energy, the experience of which, after consumption, moves through three stages. In the first stage Wachuma focuses on cleaning the stomach and digestive system; in the second stage it focuses on clearing the physical body, muscular & nervous systems, and circulatory system; and, in the third stage Wachuma focuses on clearing the energetic body and the spiritual body.
