Hikuri Ceremonies

In the traditional Wixarika ceremony, we sit up all night around Tatewari, the Grandfather Fire, and talk with him, while we listen to the songs of the Marakame and eating Hikuri. This helps us to awake self-knowledge and find clear answers to face our reality. Therefore the main purpose of this ceremony is to heal our body, mind and spirit, and to give thanks to our Mother Earth and our Father Sun for giving us strength to walk the path of life in grace and harmony. The Peyote grows in northern and central area of Mexico, and in parts of America’s extreme southwest. Native people have been ingesting peyote as a part of their spiritual ceremonies for thousands of years.

Every year, the Wixarika people make a pilgrimage to the sacred desert of Wirikuta to collect the Hikuri (peyote cactus), central to their religious rituals, as a desire to return to where life originated and heal oneself.

In this sacred journey, the Marakames travel 250 miles and assume roles of gods along the trail that they take by foot. Upon arrival in Wirikuta, the hunt begins and the first cactus that is found is shared among everyone. Then, they harvest enough Hikuri for the year.

After the work is done, they eat enough Hikuri to have visions. Because of the visions and effects of the plant, the Marakame is able to speak to the gods and ensure the regeneration of the Wixarika soul.


Cacao is a fruit native to tropical climates and the Amazon Basin of Central and South America. The fruits are pods, and when opened, has a creamy white seed. The seeds are dried and roasted to form raw cacao. Cacao is the unprocessed version of chocolate. It was not only revered by the Aztec, Incans and Mayans, but used as a currency as well. In Aztec culture, cacao was more precious than gold itself. The first discovery of cacao was found in Ancient Olmec pots dating to around 1500 B.C with traces of theobromine, a chemical compound active in cacao.

Theobromine means ‘food of the gods’, and was traditionally only used by priests in special rituals, and drunk by kings and queens.

Cacao was commonly used in rituals by the Aztec, Inca, and Maya. They each have their own traditions, and the Mayans passed it onto the Aztecs, having cultivated cacao as early as 600 BC. Ceremonial cacao is pure, unprocessed, to maximize health benefits. When cacao is processed and the butter removed, it turns into ‘cocoa powder’.

Ceremonial grade cacao is 100% raw, sugar free, and unprocessed. It has an extremely bitter taste, and can be blended with a mixture of water, herbs and spices. The Mayans traditionally added chilis to their cacao, while the Aztecs enjoyed it whipped into a froth and served without anything. You can experiment with cacao and add a number of herbs; lavender, honey, cardamom, cinnamon, coconut milk, etc.

The primary compound of cacao is theobromine, which stimulates blood circulation, opening the heart. Users experience vasodilation, increased energy, stamina, and an overall sense of well being. Cacao is a wonderful alternative to caffeine as well.

What is Kambo?

Kambo is the secretion of the green giant monkey tree frog, scientifically known as Phyllomedusa Bicolor. Traditionally, it is used by many tribes in the Amazon Rainforest of Peru and Brazil notably; Yawanawa, Katukina, Kaxinawa and Matses (Mayoruna). It is considered a medicine in the jungle, known as ‘Vacina de la Floresta’. It may be used in conjunction with rape and sananga.

Legend of Kambo-

There are many legends amongst the tribes that all speak of a spirit from the forest bringing the frog to a Paje (shaman). The most well known legend is from the Kaxinawa Tribe. One day there came an illness into the village that was unlike any illness the Paje had seen before. He tried various types of treatments, to no avail. How could he heal his people? He retreated into the jungle in isolation on a dieta. After drinking Ayahuasca, he asked the spirit of the plant how he would be able to heal his people. The spirit of the forest appeared to him, carrying with her a frog. She showed him how to find the frog, collect its secretion, and use it to cure illness. He became known as Paje Kampu. After his death, the tribes continued to carry on this tradition of healing with kambo.


Traditionally Kambo is used to clear panema, otherwise known as negative energy that causes sickness and ill fortune. Amazon warriors would use kambo to make themselves stronger before going hunting, increase stamina, heightened awareness and senses, focus, and strengthen the immune system.
