In this offering, we will explore the historic, traditional and cultural uses of Los Niños Santos ("the sainted children"), the mushrooms we know as psilocybin. There is documented use of this medicine by the Mayans going back 5,000 years; another ancient, potent lineage is still practiced by the Mazotec peoples of Oaxaca, Mexico. Diving into some of these practices, we will shine a light on the complicated legacy of Mazotec curandera Maria Sabina.
