Through intentional daily practices, authentic conversations and ceremonies, the essence of who you really are will be revealed.
SACRED HUACHUMA (SAN PEDRO)
Huachuma, a cactus also known as San Pedro, has long been used by indigenous people in Peru to “unlock the gates of heaven.” This cactus works to heal your body, spirit and mind.
Huachuma meets you where you are at, while offering a profound, transformative experience in the form of deep insight and connection to yourself, nature and the universe.
The sacred cactus allows you to release anything that doesn’t serve you including baggage from this or previous lifetimes. With its gentle guidance you will find the answers that are already inside of you.
