Sacred wisdom medicine plants
The role of yagé as a trans-dimensional energy portal is illustrated by a plethora of accounts from the elders of today and yesterday. Visionary plant medicine in its ceremonial context is a portal to unseen realms, one that was made known in order to help the temporal maintain its connection to the eternal. Master yagé drinkers have received sacred plants in visions so that they may confirm their communion with the celestial immortals and refresh their varieties. They then plant them near their homes. Species obtained from the realms of divine spirits include Yagé/Ayahuasca (Banisteriopsis caapi), an heirloom variety called SëñoYage “Yellow Yage”, and Yage-ocó (Diplopterys cabrerana) an heirloom variety called Yají, originally from the Wambiza tribe.
