Many of you probably know ayahuasca from Ayahuasca Retreats and healing centers. However, Ayahuasca actually has been used since a very long time ago.
Indian tribes in America, especially in the Amazon, always have magic shamans who can cure illness, even predict the future. This mystery has been studied for years by scientists to find the cause.
Apparently, there is one plant that can make a person experiencing hallucinations and escorted him to the supernatural gate. This plant is a kind of vines that botanists call Banisteriopsis caapi commonly used by the shamans.
When the stem is boiled or soaked in water then mixed with other natural ingredients, the result is a hallucinogenic substance which they call Yaje or Ayahuasca which can also be called as wine for the soul. In the tradition of an alienated society in the Amazon, basic beliefs have emerged that consider Yaje’s sacred ceremony drinking. That is the origin of the use of Ayahuasca.
