Xochitl Ashé: Honoring indigenous psilocybin and microdosing traditions

Xochitl Kusikuy Ashe is a Mazatec medicine woman, mentor and ceremony facilitator

Xochitl Kusikuy Ashe has been a teacher, mentor and ceremony facilitator for the last 25 years. At 16 years old she became the first female of 5 generations of men to be initiated into the healing tradition of her Peruvian ancestral lineage. For the past 24 years she apprenticed under her godfather, a Mazatec Medicine man of the ancient healing tradition with 'Santitos', or, psilocybin mushrooms.

She founded The Teona Center for ancestral plant medicine - an indigenous, women-owned retreat company that offers legal Mazatec Psilocybin Mushroom Retreats in Mexico. Xochitl is on our team as a facilitator and educator for our 6-week microdosing program, and in addition, we are grateful for her guidance in helping both our participants as well as our team learn how to honor the indigenous wisdom that has carried these plant medicines through history, so that we may continue to connect with them today.

Xochitl has kindly gifted the Microdosing Institute community $100 off the next Magical Medicine Journey retreats. To receive $100 off, make sure to select "Microdosing Institute" under "how did you hear about us" when you apply: Learn more or apply here.
