In Talleres - Workshops
Mazatec Testimonial After a chance meeting with Mario and a brief conversation about the workshop in the Mazatec Sierra I was committed to the level of trust and surrender required to truly experience the power of the work, not only of the mushrooms from this sacred place, but also the observations, words of wisdom, insight, and experience of Mario himself. Although the retreat largely focuses on the Mazatec’s traditional use of the psychedelic mushrooms that are scattered along the landscape and sweat lodge or temezcal ceremonies, mine began with a bang. Inhaling a dose of Bufo (5Meo-DMT), propelled me on my guided tour to the centre of the universe, a peak into the otherside, where the realisation that we are everything and nothing, where reality is morphed into a flash of transcendent shimmering white beauty, a place where peace remains for eternity. Over the following 6 days there were 3 mushrooms ceremonies and 2 temezcal sweat lodges. The insights and learnings about myself, reality and how to live a good life that I gained in this short time will shape the rest of my life, I am sure of it. A truly magical learning experience. To be invited into the homes of the indigenous family, eat their food, sleep in their home and participate in sacred mushroom ceremonies, with their mushrooms and under their guidance is a privilege I find hard to believe actually happened. The work being done by Mario, the host Mazatec family, the mountain and the mushrooms during this retreat is life changing. It is impossible to put into words the value this experience will have on my life. I foresee myself thinking about this experience when I’m laying on my death bed looking through the chamber of memories, if I do not implement the lessons I learned on this mountain for the rest of my life I will die disappointed in myself.

Hello friends! Brotherly greetings! We just arrived home after the journey to the Mazatec Sierra So as promised, here is the update. We had not gone to the Sierra since last year when we visited Julia, to our farewell. Since then, the entire grieving process and the closeness we kept with the family was by phone or text. Doña Julia was the head of the family almost in every possible way. Many times Mazatecs operate in a matriarch frame, this was the case of this family since Julia's husband died decades ago. Julia's loss is big and left a huge empty space, and still, family members don't know exactly how to fill it. Julia passed only last December. Obviously, they are still grieving. Yet they are standing up, they are active, challenged, and still a bit confused, they keep alive their good mood and good humor despite the sadness they live. They all say: "We are learning to live again" The majority are young people, some teens, children, and recently arrived babies. The biggest son of Julia, Fausto, and his wife just received a baby two weeks ago. A girl, Fausto is considering to name her "Julia" To honor his mother. The Ceremonies It was very interesting to see how all related to the sacred plants and ceremonies are such an important aspect of their culture that it is not affected by whatever is going on in everyday life, not even grieving... All their work and attention around sacred plants, ceremonies, and healing is profound, special, and important, you can feel their actions with their minds in silence... Sacred plants, a magical place outside of the everyday world. The ceremony went smoothly, the participants had a very good and transcendental experience and found things they were looking for. We have planed a near visit Basically, because we know they are now struggling, and need support, the pandemic did arrive at the sierra, basically, every business closed, many went broke, and almost everyone is jobless now, but still needing resources to live. Such is what we now saw. Our visit to their home provides them with work to earn very needed resources for the house, family, and animals. The days we visit them every family member has a job and they all team up smoothly, they do it very well. It's an honor to be received at home and be taken care of with such care. In the Mazatec Sierra 35 years ago Hermelinda (The mother of Julieta) taught me that "One hand washes the other hand" because one hand alone cannot fully wash. Meaning they give us something we don't have, and we give them something they don't have. ...two hands help each other, both benefit, both win, both clean both bettered... Would you come with us next August? The Mazatec Sierra has since ever been a territory of magic, healing, lucidity, and consciousness thanks to its extraordinary people and their profound Sacred Plants. A place to transcend, grow, find, detach, forgive, clean, find... This time your visit would have an additional layer of beauty, providing the family with work and resources to have it easier at this moment.
