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.

The Lord of Ayahuasca - Don Solón Tello - November 1998

Solón Tello Lozano was born in Nauta on November 16, 1918. Ayahuasquero master who for more than 60 years dedicated himself to this practice. His first teacher was Daniel Soplin. Don Solón traveled by river to the interior of the Amazon to undertake learning “dietas” that lasted 8 to 10 days every two years. He was one of the main promoters of Amazonian Traditional Medicine in Peru between 1980 and 2000. He could call the attention of people for the humble and effective practice in the healing work he carried out in the city of Iquitos. His well-known and good medical practice led him to be summoned several times by the Takiwasi Center to serve ayahuasca and other plants. He had the patience to teach his medicine with his leisurely pace, transmitting his ikaros and those taught to him by his teachers. He passed away in 2010 at 92 years of age.
