Leading with cosmic consciousness.

Spiritual retreats at Modern Ancient Sanctuary in Iquitos, Peru

It's crucial to recognize that indigenous peoples primarily use sacred medicine for spiritual and cultural purposes. Those who embark on a journey of healing, personal growth, and spirituality can deeply benefit from the transformational journey. 

Shamans and ancient cultures used sacred medicine in traditional settings, considering them benevolent entities and master teachers. We too must approach sacred medicine with reverence and honor for the wisdom and healing offered.


Experiences with sacred medicine can provide a pure and unmistakable connection to divine love, which can serve as a catalyst for healing on many levels, often through physical purging of trauma and dis-ease.


However, using sacred medicine as a temporary high or a substitute for recreational drugs may lead to confusion, depression, or psychological issues. Uneducated or unprepared individuals may struggle to cope with the profound self-reflection that sacred medicine experiences can evoke and may resist embracing the change and emotional currents that accompany such growth.

Therefore, those who approach the medicine with sincere curiosity and attraction will benefit from understanding its ancient roots. Respect for the beliefs and traditions of the indigenous cultures, that inherently view it as a spiritual practice, can positively impact the experience and integration of the journey.

The term "sacred" is used to describe the medicine because it can transport individuals into a dimension beyond their known reality when consumed.


Sacred medicine can induce visions and altered states of consciousness without containing the harmful chemicals present in recreational drugs such as cocaine and heroin.


Recreational substances offer only temporary highs, and their usage can lead to detrimental effects such as damaging serotonin and brain cells, causing unhealthy addictions, depression, dependency, and a host of other adverse consequences that are well-documented in contemporary times.

In contrast, sacred medicine is an excellent way to address addictions and much more. It is a natural product that is not synthesized with harmful chemicals in a laboratory.

Countless blessings from Mother Nature.

Ayahuasca retreat at Modern Ancient Sanctuary in iquitos, Peru

We use various plants and gifts from mother nature to cleanse spaces and people. One example is 'Mapacho' which is pure tobacco. The smoke from Mapacho is used to cleanse ceremonial space and non-loving energies. For example, a headache may quickly disappear with a simple smoke blowing (not smoking) exercise using a pure Mapacho cigarette. Palo Santo is a spiritual wood with an exquisite smell. We use this holy wood for cleansing and bringing in positive energies.
