Explore the Indigenous pathway of using sacred mushrooms to connect to the power, wisdom, and deep transformative healing of your “well ancestors.”
Experience the liberation that comes from understanding and healing — through mushroom microdosing and ritual ceremony — the hidden influences of personal blocks that may arise from ancestral wounds that are ready to be transmuted into blessings.
Healing yourself isn’t just about your current actions, choices, and experiences. Indigenous wisdom tells us that your ancestral lineage is a hidden factor that plays a significant role in your overall wellness, influencing every aspect of your life, including your health, relationships, and even financial prosperity.
Yet, conventional approaches to healing rarely acknowledge this crucial connection. This invisible link in your healing chain could be the very thing that’s keeping you stuck in some aspect of your life.
Fifth-generation Peruvian medicine carrier Xochitl Ashe invites you to experience the combined power of ancestral healing and sacred mushrooms to guide you through the ancient and transformative journey of releasing these hidden burdens.
Using time-honored practices passed down through her lineages, Xochitl will guide you in understanding how ancestral burdens impact your present and how to release them using the ancient wisdom of sacred mushrooms, facilitating a ripple of healing that extends through seven generations — past and future.
The potential of psilocybin mushrooms transcends and includes the physical and psychological realms when engaged within an Indigenous ceremonial context.
Indigenous cultures leverage these fungi for healing, spiritual growth, and community bonding. In a ceremonial setting, consuming mushrooms is infused with intention and reverence, offering a holistic path towards healing and self-discovery. This approach respects the rich historical, cultural, and spiritual significance of psilocybin mushrooms, promoting personal and ancestral healing.
Psilocybin is generating a great deal of scientific excitement now for its therapeutic potential and its stimulation of neuron growth and connectivity. This has been shown to have transformative mental health benefits, alleviating disorders such as depression, anxiety, and PTSD.
Microdosing is the subtle, yet transformative consumption of sub-perceptual amounts of psilocybin mushrooms. Users report benefits such as enhanced creativity, improved focus, heightened emotional awareness, and improved mood, all contributing to personal growth and an improved quality of life. Emerging research also suggests that microdosing could stimulate neurogenesis — the development of new brain cells.
During this sacred journey, you’ll:
- Unearth deep-seated ancestral traumas that are influencing your current struggles in key areas, such as relationships, health, and finances
- Understand how to harness the transformative power of microdosing — coupled with Indigenous traditions, to foster deep healing and personal growth, as well as enhanced cognition, creativity, and wellness, inviting novel insights and opportunities
- Discover the wisdom of sacred mushrooms, and how these “plantcestors” have been used for centuries to heal burdens passed down through generations
- Engage with your ancestral lineage, unlocking the power of your genetic memory and stepping into your highest potential
- Experience the liberating power of releasing ancestral burdens, and witness the transformation in your life as you align with your true purpose
- Learn to cultivate a deep, spiritual relationship with your plant allies, enhancing your connection to the natural world and the wisdom it holds
- Explore the integral role ancestral healing plays in personal growth and healing intergenerational traumas, illuminating a path to a brighter future
- Craft an ancestral altar, fostering a daily touchpoint with your roots and ancestral wisdom, through an ongoing experiential process throughout the course

- Identify the 3 types of ancestral trauma — personal, cultural, and collective — and their influence on your healing journey
- Incorporate the transformative concept of ceremony into your daily life — providing a healing and growth framework to last your lifetime
- And much more...
Over the course of seven weeks, Xochitl will guide you through the wisdom of Indigenous healing practices and the profound insights gained from sacred mushrooms. You’ll connect with your roots... understand the protocols of microdosing... address your ancestral traumas... develop meaningful relationships with plant allies... harness the power of community... and integrate these profound lessons into your daily life.

This course offers you the opportunity to walk a different path — one that honors the wisdom of our ancestors, celebrates your connection with the natural world, and facilitates deep, lasting healing.

The subtle, yet powerful practice of microdosing mushrooms, intertwined with Indigenous healing traditions, can provide a gateway to this profound personal growth and liberation.

About Xochitl Kusikuy Ashe
Xochitl Kusikuy Ashe has been a teacher and guide in one-on-one mentorships, workshops, and ceremonies both internationally and in the U.S. for the past 27 years. At the age of 16, she became the first female in five generations of men to be initiated into the healing traditions of her Peruvian ancestral lineage. She is a medicine woman in the Peruvian Andean tradition and has worked with sacred plant medicines since the time of her initiation.
For the past 23 years, she has apprenticed under her godfather, a Mazatec medicine man of the ancient tradition of healing with the nti-si tho, santitos, or psilocybin mushrooms. She is a professionally trained herbalist, an internal family systems (IFS) therapy practitioner, and a specialist in the ceremonial use of cacao and psilocybin mushrooms. In her practice, Xochitl focuses on healing generational trauma, and the ways in which that trauma impairs our ability to thrive, create wealth, and have a positive impact on the world.
The founder of Magical Medicine Journeys, an Indigenous women-owned retreat company that offers legal Mazatec psilocybin mushroom retreats in Mexico, Xochitl’s mission is to honor the traditional Indigenous knowledge and ceremony of sacred plant medicine while providing authentic and powerful life-changing experiences. She is also faculty at Esalen Institute and Microdosing Institute.
