AYAHAUSCA CEREMONY IN CUSCO
Ayahuasca is used largely as a treasured sacrament. People who work with ayahuasca in traditional contexts often align themselves with the philosophies and cosmologies associated with ayahuasca shamanism, as practiced among indigenous peoples like the Shipibo etnia of the Peruvian Amazon. While non-native users know of the spiritual applications of ayahuasca, a less well-known traditional usage focuses on the medicinal properties of ayahuasca. When used for its medicinal purposes, ayahuasca affects the human consciousness for less than six hours, beginning half an hour after consumption and peaking after two hours. Ayahuasca also has cardiovascular effects, moderately increasing heart rate and diastolic blood pressure. In some cases, individuals experience significant psychological stress during the experience
