You will need warm gear as we will be undertaking the ceremony in traditional Wixarika style and will be outside with the fire under the stars all night. It's also a very good idea to bring a skin, rug or mat to sit on, something nice and warm like a blanket, and if you have a backrest. And waterproofs! If you are staying both nights you can bring a tent to pitch.
Please bring flowers, chocolate or anything you wish to be blessed on the altar. And remember a white candle, in a glass. If you're staying both nights you will need one that will last.
To prepare for the ceremony, it's best to fast as much as possible, maybe a breakfast and some snacks, fruit etc during the day. Also for the three days before the ceremony try eat to as healthy and lightly as possible and prepare yourself mentally with your intention and focus. This is very important, as the more preparation and intention you put in, the more you will receive from the ceremony.
As part of this preparation, gather a cotton thread or string and tie a knot in it for each sexual partner you have ever had in your life (not including the current one if you are in a relationship. Try to remember their name and also some details of the encounter as you are tying the knot. Also, if there are any traumas or bad experiences you also wish to release at this time, think about these and tie another knot to represent each one. Bring your string to the ceremony as the experiences they represent will be cleansed in the sacred fire, Tatewari.
Please don't bring any alcohol or other substances on site as this can interfere with the healing process. It's often good to avoid these also for three days before and after the ceremonies.
The Marakame will also be offering healing during the day for an exchange. There will also be some beautiful jewellery and other stuff from the communities for sale so bring some spare cash if you intend to shop!
If have any other questions about the ceremony, please email.
