What is Ayahuasca?

Ayahuasca is a sacred and powerful plant sacrament, traditionally used for centuries by indigenous communities in the Amazon basin of South America. It is renowned for its ability to facilitate spiritual exploration, healing, and a deep connection with nature. Typically, Ayahuasca is prepared as a brew made from the Ayahuasca vine (Banisteriopsis caapi) and the leaves of the Chacruna plant (Psychotria viridis). This profound sacrament teaches respect for life and the natural world while fostering spiritual healing and self-discovery.
