Purgahuasca, preparation and intake - November 1998

The ceremony "Datem umaja imutai waimaktasa" or purgahuasca, in Spanish, is one of the therapeutic procedures of the Awajún culture that since November 1998 ha been included as a practice within the therapeutic protocol of the Takiwasi Center, thanks to the teachings provided by the Awajún master healer Don Walter Cuñachi. Purgahuasca is a little concentrated ayahuasca preparation that is taken as in a purging session. In the Awajún tradition the purgahuasca session was a practice of initiation, so that through this means 14 years old boys could discover their vocation and know which path to follow in their adult lives.
