Our philosophy for ceremony

No one person will heal you. We do not claim to be healers or miracle workers, but we do believe these medicines can heal you; it ultimately comes down to you though.

We believe every single person is their own teacher and their own master. Having a teacher can always help you, but ultimately you are responsible for yourself, your emotions, your peace, your salvation. No one can do that for you. Anyone who claims that is lying to you.

At Mate de Luz, we give everyone the tools they need. We give people a meditation technique and we offer medicines. In this way each person consciously works to heal themselves, and we are there to give guidance and help.

Do we believe you need to take these medicines to find peace or salvation? Absolutely not. But they can absolutely get you on the path or help you along it.

My personal belief is that enlightenment or salvation can only be achieved through consciousness and meditation/prayer. The problem is these take practice and patience, two things most people aren’t willing to do. It’s especially hard if you’ve never experienced anything spiritual, or felt the benefit of meditation/prayer.

What these plants do (generally speaking; it’s different for everyone) is speed up that initial process. They have you feel and sometimes see things that do not fit in with rationality. They show you what is possible if you live a conscious and spiritual life. It’s like getting a taste of divinity so that you know what you’re working towards through these practices. After having experienced it, it is much easier to have patience and practice meditation because you realize how beautiful and amazing the results can be.

Ultimately, you still need to put in the work, but what we here at Mate de Luz want EVERYONE to understand is that you do not have to be dependent on a teacher, master, plant or practice. You have everything you need and all the answers of the universe within you, you just need to learn how to access it.

And THAT is the message we hope we can share.
