"Sacerdote Católico explica ritual de hongos mágicos". PARTE 2 de 3: Los Sabios. - YouTube

Parte 2: Los Sabios.

Pero los sabios, que generalmente no les manejan español, incluso manejan pocos elementos de la Iglesia. Su diálogo es más con sus seres sobrenaturales, propios. Las veladas de ellos es precisamente llegar a ese encuentro con Dios. Ellos llaman el culmen del rito llegar a la mesa sagrada. Llegar a la mesa, le dicen "yamixale chjota títjon", la mesa de la riqueza. Pero la mesa de las riquezas dicen donde Dios va a repartir sus dones, donde Dios te va a dar la luz verdadera, donde te va a mostrar tu camino.

No en todos los ritos se llega. En algunos se queda uno en la etapa de purificación, en otros en la etapa de curación, cuando hay enfermedades o algo, pero ya llegar a la mesa sagrada, pocas veces. Pero siempre la meta es esa, yo voy a entablar ese diálogo con Dios.

Un verdadero sabio, nunca abandona a medio viaje a su paciente. Lo va acompañando, se hace el viaje. A veces van lejísimos, y luego regresan. Hasta que lo trae de regreso a donde está, se termina el rito.

Y mucha gente de la que está aquí, pues les dan los hongos, les rezan, les cantan y los dejan. ¿Tienes problemas? Pues ahí tú resuélvelos. No hay ese diálogo de decir bueno ¿qué ves? ¿qué sientes?, ¿cómo estás?, cuando la gente empieza a perderse, porque a veces encuentra uno cosas muy bonitas, se ve muy bonito. Y el sabio, el verdadero sabio te dice: "No espérate, tú no veniste a ver florecitas, tú no veniste a ver colores, tú no veniste a cantar. ¿A qué veniste? ¿Qué es lo que quieres resolver? Pues ve y búscalo. No te quedes aquí en lo bonito. Busca tu problema, resuélvelo”.

Cuando se ven cosas difíciles o oscuridad o animales o problemas, el sabio dice, “Pues aquí es el reto órale. Síguele, síguele. Vas a vencer. Reza, pídele a Dios”. Y el sabio se pone a rezar, se pone a cantar, usa el pisiete, usa lo que le dicta ahí el momento, no hay, una liturgia estructurada, sino el sabio va leyendo ahorita qué tengo que hacer, para ayudar a superar los problemas. Es realmente un caminar con la persona con la que estás atendiendo. Y hasta donde se llegue y luego, hay que regresar. El sabio nunca deja a medio camino, sino tiene que ayudar a regresar.

Yo veo en eso una gran diferencia ¿no? Una cosa es venir a Huautla y decir: “Pues quiero ver qué se siente con los honguitos o que...”. Pero ya otra cosa es meterse realmente en un proceso de búsqueda, de encuentro, de la sabiduría de Dios. Y eso difícilmente se va a encontrar aquí en Huautla. Aquí en Huautla, los más conocidos no son recomendables para un proceso de conocimiento del pueblo.

Y mucha gente hace ritos, pero lo hacen en familia. Casi todos los Mazatecos hacen sus ritos, pero los hacen en familia. Se reúnen entre ellos, y se ayudan. Entonces yo creo que hay una diferencia muy grande ¿no? Dedicarse nada más a atender al que llega por curiosidad o por ver, y la otra, la gente que está metida con su pueblo, que está ayudándole a su pueblo. Y es muy interesante aquí en Huautla, en esta región yo he visto un despertar de la vocación de sabio. En jóvenes, y muy jóvenes, a veces de 18, de 20 de 22 años, ya sienten ese llamado a realizar esta vocación.

Factors affecting the use of medicinal plants by migrants from rural areas of Brazilian Northeast after moving to a metropolitan region in Southeast of Brazil | Journal of Ethnobiology and Ethnomed... | Ayahuasca News | Scoop.it
Ethnopharmacological studies about migrants reveal a dynamic process of knowledge and use of medicinal plants. In this study, we sought to elucidate quantitative and qualitatively the main factors influencing the use of medicinal plants by migrants from rural areas to an urban region in Brazil with traces of remnant natural vegetation. Seven Northeastern individuals who migrated to the Southeastern Region of Brazil (Bororé Peninsula, in the city of São Paulo) were selected to participate in semi-structured interviews regarding the use of medicinal plants throughout their lives, and indicated an inhabitant in their hometown that would be able to accompany the field collections in each area. Socioeconomic, educational, family structure, and use of Western medicine data were provided during interviews with the individuals from their hometowns. Plant samples cited by the interviewees were collected both at the current place of residence and in their hometowns. The participants cited 131 plants and 315 recipes, being the main indications related to the gastrointestinal system, respiratory problems, and pain and inflammatory processes. We observed that most plant uses were maintained after migration. Higher percentages of maintenances and incorporations in plant uses occurred to exotic species, while replacements happen mainly to native plants. The introduction of new species into the migrants’ therapeutics occurred mainly by observations of organoleptic similarities between the substituted plant and the incorporated species, conversations with neighbors, and contact with the television and print media. In addition, the public health system allowed the interviewees access to prophylactic drugs, leading to the discontinuation of certain recipes used in endemic diseases. Migrants were exposed to information about new plants and their uses, new diseases, and socioeconomic and cultural differences that impacted their use of medicinal plants. Although migration to a more developed city facilitated access to public health and education, on the other hand, it made access to fresh medicinal plants difficult, causing some medicinal plants to be replaced or ceased to be used.

Thank you for visiting our Protect Juristac website. This site was developed by the Amah Mutsun Tribal Band. Our Tribe is comprised of the descendants of the indigenous peoples taken to missions San Juan Bautista and Santa Cruz on the central coast of California.

The true history of California Indians has never been told. For thousands of years and hundreds of generations our ancestors lived, raised their families and took care of the environment of our territory so it provided for our finned, winged, four-legged and leafed kin. They held Ceremonies at Juristac and throughout our traditional tribal territory to keep our lands sacred and to pray and give thanks to Creator for all that has been given to the the Amah Mutsun.

De tempos em tempos, surge uma onda de otimismo, quase sempre frustrada, acerca da possibilidade de uso de compostos psicodélicos para tratar problemas de saúde mental. Extraída de plantas ou sintetizada em laboratório, essas substâncias costumam alterar a percepção da realidade e as emoções e causar uma sensação de bem-estar, além de poderem provocar episódios de ansiedade com menor frequência. A disseminação de seu uso recreativo nos anos 1960 pelos movimentos de contracultura levou as autoridades sanitárias a proibir o acesso a esses compostos em muitos países – alguns permitem o uso restrito em pesquisas. A onda atual de entusiasmo…

"Sacerdote Católico explica ritual de hongos mágicos"

La postura de la Iglesia hacia los honguitos, aquí en la Sierra, ha ido tomando cada día más, una búsqueda de la verdad del Mazateco, la verdad de la fe del mazateco. Cómo es su forma de expresarse, de conocer, de adorar, de entender a Dios, para que esa forma también pueda enriquecer a la misma Iglesia, a todas las otras Iglesias. Que no sean cosas raras que hacen en la Sierra, sino que es parte de una espiritualidad que puede dar mucha riqueza a la Iglesia y al mundo.

Para dialogar con ellos sobre su sabiduría, sobre su fe, su moral, sus costumbres, y tratar de ir poniendo las bases de los que sería una verdadera Iglesia autóctona, la Iglesia Mazateca, sin estar separada de la Iglesia Católica, pero tampoco decir, bueno somos Iglesia Romana, no, tenemos que ser Iglesia Mazateca, algún día lo tenemos que lograr, para ser files a Cristo, tenemos que ser Iglesia Mazateca y en eso tiene que entrar todo lo que es el Mazateco.
