The Huachuma (San Pedro) cactus of the Northern Coast of Peru has been transforming consciousness in spiritual seekers for over 5000 years. Traditional healers from Northern Peru (called Kamasqa Curanderos) use the Huachuma cactus along with a healing altar called the Mesa. The Mesa was born from and grew alongside the wisdom teachings of the sacred cactus. The Mesa is principally a healing tool, whose alignment mirrors the cosmic order and whose artifacts carry a power inherited by the co-creative dance of the Healer, Nature and the Huachuma Cactus.This workshop will introduce participants to the fundamentals of the Kamasqa Curandero’s Mesa and will use community song to invoke the virtues and qualities that make the Mesa such a powerful healing tool. By understanding the Mesa we will come closer to the world of right relationships that these sacred plant teachers are trying to share.
