Broadcast on May 11, 2023
With don Oscar Miro-Quesada
Hosted by Joe Tafur, MD

In this dialogue, don Oscar Miro-Quesada will focus on how Peruvian folk healers' ancestral use of plant sacraments is a ritual means of awakening psychedelic states of consciousness conducive to whole-person healing and soul maturation in the lives of all recipients.

In this session, you’ll discover:

  • The healing relationship between soul and body mediated by psychedelic realms of awareness within northern Peruvian folk healing
  • How psychedelic visions assist folk healers in diagnosing and treating Enfermedades de Da’o (Illnesses of Harm) and Enfermedades de Dios (Illnesses of God) supported by ritual
  • A transformational encounter with nature-based Andean deities known to offer trustworthy guidance in the shamanic use of psychedelics for spiritual growth
