plant medicine

Invitation to travel to the Huni Kuin tribe in Brazil state of Acre 2020


HUni Kuin

Anaconda Movement is happy to present an amazing opportunity to experience authentic plant medicine from deep within the Amazon jungle. We bring to you Ayahuasca or, as the Huni Kuin tribe calls it, Nixi-pae. They call themselves the Huni Kuin meaning the “true humans” or “people with known customs.” “Aya” means spirit and “huasca” means vine. This combination of two or more plants helps you to connect to the spirit molecule. Join us for a transformative ceremony in Guatemala, offering a beautiful natural setting and a guided, intended experience.

After years of experience taking and working with this medicine, I have come to realize that the work prior to the ceremony is instrumental in gaining information and wisdom from Ayahuasca (also known as the grandmother). It is important to understand that this is not a drug. Through the act of drinking this plant, you intend to heal, evolve, and free yourself from self-imposed limitations and psychological programming.

Tuwe comes from deep within the rainforest of the Amazon. It takes him 5 days to reach “civilization”. He will make this voyage to bring this beautiful experience to you. He wants you to experience Ayahuasca in a proper traditional setting, in the sacred site of Lake Atitlan. His voyage is a long expedition, and he makes it happily so he can share with you his medicine, his guidance, and his music from the forest. Tuwe offers Rapé and Sangana prior to Ayahuasca. This combination offers a very deep connection to the plant medicine and prepares you for the visions and spiritual journey on which you will embark.

As the ceremony concludes, the following morning at sunrise, we will join in a circle to share the night, our visions, and our experience. Afterward, fruits and drinks will be provided, All are welcome to stay and receive Kambo. This is separate from the plant medicine, and is available upon request. You may spend the afternoon in the area or shuttle back to Antigua or the city. Lodging in the area for the following night can also be provided upon request.

Ayahuasca Ceremony Preparation – The Long List

Ideally, you want to prepare yourself as best you can for your encounter with the Madre. Like a yogi in preparation to go into a meditation retreat, you want to begin purifying your body by eliminating certain foods and drugs from your system at least 2-4 weeks prior to ceremony. For certain prescription drugs, including SSRIs, the abstinence period will be even longer.

A good rule of thumb is to eat organic, whole foods and go blandly cooked vegan.
