FEITIO: THE MAKING OF SANTO DAIME

Many consider the making the sacrament -- the Santo Daime -- to be the most integrated and profound spiritual work of the tradition.

Every step in the process is ritualized, beginning as the women collect and wash the Rainha leaves

and the men gather and clean the Jagube vine.

Then the polarities -- men and women, macracá and mallet, leaf and vine, water and fire -- are brought together in the work of producing the holy sacrament.

The videos tell the story best.

Hi Lou,

Thanks for collecting these videos. I am building a resource list for ayahuasca education and I have added a link to this page under Ayahuasca Videos.

Take care, Michael
