What is Ayahuasca


Ayahuasca is known as the combination of two plants Rao (“plants with being able”) Ayahuasca (Banisteriopsis caapi) and chacruna (psychodria viridis), of the Amazonia. The medicinal combination flood those who ingest it, the Shipibo-Konibo calls this Koshi, which means energy or positive force. The Koshi energy purifies the body through the soul and therefore, serves to cure physical and emotional problems.

Recently the National Institute of Culture of Peru has declared the traditional and ritual use of Ayahuasca a cultural patrimony of the nation. The Amazonian tradition of the Shipibo-Konibo people, masters and protectors of the Rao plants, teach that the Ayahuasca must be administered by a shaman, called a Onanya, during a nocturnal session in which he “travels” by the different scopes of the cosmos and chaiconibo and communicates with the protective spirits.

After years of learning, shamans acquire great experience in the communication with the spirits and meraya, which means “the one who becomes the jaguar”. The jaguar is associated with the eternal beings of the solar fire called the Inka, who populate the celestial sphere of the cosmos Shipibo - Konibo
