FLOWER THERAPY

Because they dwell on the border between seen and unseen, closer to the etheric realm of pure energy, flowers allow you to see into the heart of truth. Tune into their unique vibrations and improve your health, vitality, beauty, success, personal power, and more. Use flowers for aromatherapy, charms and rituals, herbal potions, divine alignment, and to help manifest the life conditions you desire. Spark your own transcendent experiences with these mystical beings, who can serve as therapists, healers, and emissaries of the Divine.

Flowers can bring about subtle and powerful shifts in your physical, emotional and spiritual energy field.  They can heighten your spiritual practice and open your psychic abilities.  In many of the Shamanic Traditions in Peru from the high Andes to the Amazon, baños de florales (flower baths) are an essential and important aspect of healing. These baths are often used before or after medicine journeys, to clear energy and balance the person preparing for a journey, or the benefit of returning from one.   -By Miralva Melo

MUD BATH THERAPY

Mud baths are a powerful and effective method of helping the body eliminate toxins. It assists in stimulating the lymphatic system and deeply cleansing the largest organ in our bodies, our skin. Clay used in this manner interacts directly with the body's immune system, and helps to remove the post-digestive burden placed on the major organs.  Mud baths utilize wet clay originating from hot springs, volcanic ash and saltwater, each offering unique health benefits. Containing calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, silica, copper and sodium, mud baths can be anti-inflammatory, detoxifying, and very relaxing.

Sodium is needed in the body for regulation of fluids and blood pressure, it also assists in the smooth functioning of muscles and nerves, helps maintain pH balance and hydration. 

Silica is known to help encourage hydration, cell regeneration, and connective tissue health, so why not slather it on!

FIRE CEREMONY

“A fire ceremony is a powerful Native American practice used to release unwanted energies and attachments from the past and make space for new intentions. A fire ceremony can be used to release unhappy memories, fears, negative emotions, and anything that you are holding onto that doesn’t serve your Higher Self.  By releasing these unwanted energies and old patterns into the fire, you are healing at the soul level.”

WACHUMA CEREMONY

One Andean shaman describes some of the effects of the plant: "First, a dreamy state… then great visions, a clearing of all the faculties… and then detachment, a type of visual force inclusive of the sixth sense, the telepathic state of transmitting oneself across time and matter, like a removal of thoughts to a distant dimension".

Wachuma (also known as "San Pedro" or "Huachuma") is a teacher of great compassion and understanding. It shows us how to live in balance and harmony; how to love, respect, and honor all living beings. It shows us we are children of light, by being able to perceive this light within us. Each person's experience will be unique, as we are all individual beings. Drinking Wachuma is a personal journey of discovery, of the self and the universe. 

The plant is a cactus native to the Andes Mountains of Peru and Ecuador. It has a long history of use spanning 3,000 years in traditional Andean medicine.
