Title : The accompaniment of the native sages to the urban societies of our era. Punctual contributions for physical, energetic and mental healing
The current capitalist economic model has fostered a circle between health and disease, which derives from current food, the exploitation of people by the capitalist system of production, as well as the exploitation of wild ecosystems from which they extract natural goods, collectives available. These diseases at the planetary, ecosistemic and living species levels, including humans, have been identified by the wise natives of the world as a condition that has to be solved. For this reason, the registry of procedures and elements of healing within the ritual has been made through ethnographic techniques such as participant observation in meetings of spiritual leaders in Mexico and South America, as well as in healing ceremonies with 37 wise men of the American continent in different times. And for 14 years the mobility of these native authorities, doctors and traditional healers was also recorded, to serve the non-indigenous, mestizo and urban populations; populations with whom they share elements of healing through ancestral herbalism, corporal therapies and psychological and spiritual accompaniment during rituals. The aspects that are distinguished are based on commonality, good living and respect for nature with its biotic and abiotic components, as well as the balance and retribution to the natural ecosystems that are used, either in the productive systems themselves as are the producers of handicrafts, the agricultural communities, the fishing communities of the coast and the hunter societies. Among the elements used in ritual and healing processes are the use of plants, animals and minerals, which collectively and individually generate medicine. In this sense, the meaning of “medicine” also encompasses the invocations, petitions, thanks, the words and visions of the wise, where ceremonial songs, fasts, retreats in solitude to the mountain, dances and offerings stand out. It should be noted that, in this process of knowledge transmission, the mestizo community has been healed and has been incorporated into the healing process after years of accompaniment and learning with the native sages still present in our times.
