What is the Huachuma or San Pedro?

The sacred cactus, Huachuma (Trichocereus Pachanoi), is known as the Cactus of the Four Winds.

The modern or postcolonial name for this cactus is San Pedro, but the spirit of this master prefers the ancient name, Huachuma.

Like Ayahuasca, Huachuma is a sacred and visionary master plant widely used by shamans (healers).

However, while the spirit of Ayahuasca is feminine in nature, the spirit of Huachuma’s Grandfather is masculine.

And, while Ayahuasca focuses on inner work, Huachuma develops one’s potential for a conscious connection with nature and spirit while one interacts with the outside world.

Huachuma opens the sixth sense and awakens the inner divinity, the result is a sacred state of consciousness, an extraordinary state of expanded consciousness and divine communion.


The great teacher, personified in the spirit of Huachuma, teaches us what it is like to experience this sanctified state of being.

Initiates are given an impressive demonstration, through direct personal experience, that humans have the potential to live in communion with the divine.

Humanity is being given the opportunity to evolve into conscious co-creators with the divine.

Still, it’s up to each of us, individually, to find our own way.
