Machi (Mapuche Shaman) playing the Kultrún (Sacred Drum), Chile

Joan Halifax writes of this picture: "A female machi (shaman) has ascended her rewe or notched pole.  The pole has steps, and the machi climbs to the seventh level to complete her skyward journey.  She plays a frame drum that assists her in her climb up the World Tree.  In the Mapuche region of Chile, the hallucinogens Anadenathera, Datura, and Brugmancia were used during shamanic seances."

Machi with her kultrún (sacred drum painted with the Directions and stars) seated next to a rewé, which is both a pillar of ancestral spirits and a ladder into other worlds. Among the Mapuche of Chile, women predominate as medicine people.
