San Pedro Ceremony
-Because the change start in the inside-
San Pedro ceremonies start early in the morning , normally you don't eat the night before and you won't feel hungry during the day, if you start to feel hungry is because the effects of the medicine is starting to dissappear.
Ceremonies can be also done at night , this kind of ceremonies are more introspective, day time ceremonies help to connect with the outside reality, understanding that everything is one thing and how we affect each other, we can acces the matrix of the creation.
The shaman serves everyone the preparation, this preparation can be fresh liquid san pedro or san pedro in powder, depending where you are, in areas where is easy to grow , shamans always offer liquid san pedro.
When everybody is ready he / she opens the ceremony. Some shamans are really stricted and likes to be sit down in circles , and you can not move far from it. The other way wich I prefer better is that after open the ceremony you can choose an area in the place where you are . For this ceremony is really good to be in a open area such a big garden for example, , in the forest of near to water.
About music and singing , is different from shaman to shaman, some like to sing, others allow people to sing or play an instrument.
-Drums and a fire are part of TAITA INTI ceremonies.
