What Is Ayahuasca?

The wise teacher vine Ayahuasca (Banisteriopsis Caapi),

a plant known for it´s ancient knowledge, comes from the Amazon forest,

where she grows in preparation for helping every one of us.

They focus the spirits of the forest the inner world, earth, sky

and other stars. This has been used by Amazonian peoples

and cultures for thousands of years

to cleanse and heal the mind, body and soul, while preparing

and increasing positive energy.

The teacher ayahuasca is a very sacred plant,

if you want to learn from it, you should be in peace, faith, peace and balance,

she opens the door to find their inner world and the universe.

How Is Ayahuasca Prepared?


The Ayahuasca plant (Banisteriopsis Caapi) is best

when  harvested during the afternoon.  We humbly ask permssion before

harvesting the Ayahuasca. The plant is cooked in water with

the leaves of the Challypanga plant (Diploterys cabrerana).

The medicine remains at a high heat for 3 to 4 hours,

until we have a high concentration and then the vines

and leaves are removed from the brew.

The remaining medicine is left on a low heat for 30 minutes more

and thereafter is ready for the ceremony.
