Hauchuma, also known as San Pedro, is an entheogenic cactus native to the Andes Mountains in South America.
It’s been used in shamanic healing ceremonies for thousands of years.
The aboriginal name of this cactus is “Hauchuma” which got its name from the sound you hear when you cut the cactus with a machete.After the Spanish conquest, Hauchuma was renamed ‘San Pedro’, after the apostle Saint Peter. Saint Peter was a saint said to hold the keys to Heaven’s gates. This signifies that Spanish colonists were fully aware of the plants’ ability to open the doors to sacred realms.Shamans use San Pedro as a sacrament to enhance perception and connect with the spirit world. Plant medicines like San Pedro have been used around the world by indigenous people to awaken intuition, expand consciousness and assist in diagnosing illnesses.
This sacred plant is able to open the doors of perception.
It invokes deep insight into the nature of life and our connection to our ancestors.
Join us as we connect deeply in the medicine of San Pedro becoming fully present in the now.
