HIKURI RETREAT

with Kuauhtli Vazquez & Delfina Mun

Sacred Plant Medicine / Hikuri

Hikuri is a master that teaches and brings wisdom, and which deserves respect in its consumption. Through hikuri we know ourselves, we connect with nature and the gods. Hikuri manifests itself in the voice of the kauyumarie [deer] who tell us what to do, whom to remember and to worship. It unites us with our past, our family and our spouse. From it we learn art, songs, ceremonies, and the offerings that we must make. It has always been there to guide us, to remind us who we are, who we should always be.

Kuauhtli Vasquez

Kuauhtli’s years of involvement in the movement for human rights and activities to preserve the indigenous ways of life served as preparation for his current path bringing ceremonies around the world.

For the past 25 years, Kuauhtli has dedicated himself to conducting Mexica ceremonies of “Xochitl in Cuicatl” (Flower and Song), Native American Church tipi meetings, Temazcal (sweat lodge) and Mexica Danza, contributing to the awakening and reconnection of humanity with Mother Earth.

Kuauhtli has visited 36 countries while actively promoting the legalization and medical research of Hikuri and other entheogens.  He’s participated in panels, films, festivals and shared his music worldwide.

Delfina Mun

Delfina Mun has been in service to the indigenous movement and the plant medicines since a very young age, dedicating her life to the bridging of worlds through native ceremonies, music and visionary arts.

Delfina’s music brings together sacred chants from indigenous lineages of Abya Yala with her own medicine music compositions.

Her dedicated study of the ancestral voice is influenced by her roots from the far south in Argentina with chants of the Tehuelche Mapuche people and enhanced by her spiritual studies in the Amazon rainforest. 

She travels the world sharing through traditional ceremonies in a mission of spreading seeds of peace and love for Mother Earth, highlighting indigenous wisdom and a sacred way of living.

What is a Hikuri ceremony like?

Indigenous ceremony with sacred plants vary slightly from tribe to tribe, but the general practice is the same. Ceremonies are traditionally held at night, often in a tepee around a fire or alter. A shaman or tribal chief leads the ceremony during which the mescaline is passed around to each guest. Chanting, singing, praying, and drumming often take place during the experience. There is also quiet time for personal reflection.

What does a Hikuri experience feel like?

While under the influence of sacred plant medicine, some people report intense visual distortions or hallucinations or, less often, auditory hallucinations. Occasionally, people will vomit or experience headaches or anxiety. Many of the physical symptoms occur shortly after ingesting the substance and gradually fade into a sense of peace and calm. Some say they experience a sense of forgiveness for their sins from Peyote, the “High Spirit.”

How long the effects last depend on the potency and amount of mescaline ingested. Generally, the high peaks about two hours after ingestion and gradually wears off over the next eight to 18 hours. The ceremonies usually end with a large festival.
