Part 4 of 4; Mestizo Medicine Man

We attended a curandero ceremony, a healing ritual with Inca roots. The mestizo medicine man laid a variety of objects: seeds, starfish, animal crackers, powders, about 20 different things and coca leaves on white paper and said some words throughout asking for the energy of the sacred mountains and Mother Earth. We were each given 3 coca leaves to blow on 3 times and to place around the offering. All was tied into a package, and the medicine man came to each of us as 3 blew on it 3 times and he blessed us. The package was placed on a fire with other words offered from the medicine man.
