Shamanic practice holds that living in accordance with nature is medicine, and that people are capable of receiving wisdom,
healing and knowledge through working in symbiotic relationship with the earth, plants and trees. In keeping with this tradition, the Curanderos of the Amazon have a long history of using ayahuasca in ceremonial practice; in the Andes Mountains of South America, the priests use San Pedro, and in
Mexico and the Southwestern United States, shamanic practice often centers around the use of peyote and psilocybin mushrooms.
Here in Hawai’i, we find it healing and significant to partake of the ancient, psychotropic plant teachers of Hawaii and the Pacific Islands in their original habitat -- in the middle of the world’s largest ocean, the ocean named after "Peace."
Although our brew is comparable to ayahuasca, the plants we use are gentler and less physical. Our ceremonies are not to imitate those of Peru; rather, they are a unique, ceremonial opportunity for people to experience and celebrate the Master Plant teachers of Hawaii and this part of the world -- in the native locale in which the plants have been breathing, growing, rooting, propagating, and contributing to indigenous rituals and ceremonies for over a thousand years.
