Is Ayahuasca a medicine or a drug?
Ayahuasca has been used as a highly respected medicine in the Amazon for a very long time. We work with it with respect to the healing traditions from which it sprouted. Recreational drugs are generally substances that bring short term pleasure or relief but in the long term they provide no value and often cause more harm than good. True medicine brings long term healing while the experience itself can be at times very difficult, blissful at other times, and everything in between. Ayahuasca is a true medicine when worked with in a conscious and responsible way. Santuario Huishtin is not a “tripping center,” we engage with plant medicines with one intention only: healing.
