Restrictions on drinking Ayahuasca or Wachuma
Who should not take Ayahuasca
Pregnant women, individuals with heart problems, epileptics; children younger than 14 years are forbidden to take Ayahuasca. As an alternative, the Ancient Inca ceremonies (Reading of coca leaves, flowering bath, massage, etc) can be offered.
The participants can take photos and film at any moment, however the assistant might ask to put all the electronic devices on silent mode in order to not disturb the ceremony as it requires a certain level of concentration from the participants’ side and total focus from the Ayahuasca Shaman.
The Community of Shamans of Peru is the association of the Shamans of the Amazon and the Andes and is a formal, responsible and serious organization that teaches and practices original ancient techniques. Our Shamans are descendants of the original tribal Inca Healers. Their knowledge was transmitted from generation to generation, keeping the secrets and techniques of their ancestors, and performing skillful healings through the centuries. One should be careful with Ayahuasca as it is not a game, it may even lead to death. Therefore it is highly recommended to follow the diet and choose a trustworthy organization, as well as an experienced Shaman Master. A Master is one who can lead the ceremony, protect you from evil spirits, and induce harmonious visions with the help of the ritual songs. The community of Shamans dedicates this center to God and the Pachamama (Mother Earth), by guiding people into the understanding of suffering, happiness and love.
