AGDER SANCHEZ PALACIOS
This is a Mexican, ancestral ceremony from the Mazatec people based in the state of Oaxaca. Maria Sabina, the famous healer who brought magic mushrooms to the west in the 1950’s and ’60, came from this lineage. This ancestral ceremony works with psilocybin to promote healing and connection with the divine through techniques such as songs, prayers, and most of all, silence as a place of connecting with deep layers of the Soul. The medicine carriers curate a ceremony that allows them to commune with ancestors spirits and deities, sing, heal and pray. The ceremony takes place in doors at night to deeply connect with ourselves.
