Xochitl Ashe

Xochitl (So-chil) Kusikuy Ashe has been a teacher and guide in one-and-one mentorships, workshops, and ceremonies both in the US and internationally for the last 27 years. At 16 years old, she became the first female in five generations of men to be initiated into the healing traditions of her Peruvian ancestral lineage. She is a Medicine Woman in the Peruvian Andean tradition and has worked with sacred plant medicines since the time of her initiation. For the past 23 years, she apprenticed under her godfather, a Mazatec Medicine Man of the ancient tradition of healing with the "Nti-si tho," "Santitos," or psilocybin mushrooms.

​​She is a professionally trained herbalist and IFS Therapy practitioner (Internal Family Systems) and specializes in the ceremonial use of cacao and psilocybin mushrooms. In her practice, Xochitl focuses on the healing of generational trauma and the ways in which that trauma impairs our ability to thrive, create wealth, and have a positive impact on the world.

​​​Xochitl is the founder of Magical Medicine Journeys, an Indigenous women-owned retreat company that offers legal Mazatec psilocybin mushroom retreats in Mexico. Her mission is to honor the traditional Indigenous knowledge and ceremony of sacred plant medicine and provide the most authentic and powerful life-changing experiences.

She is faculty at Esalen Institute, the Microdosing Institute, and the Shift Network.

Xochitl (So-chil) Ashe is a trained herbalist with deep indigenous roots. Initiated at the age of sixteen in her Peruvian healing traditions, she has been a conduit for sacred medicines and herbs for twenty years. She works with transformational cacao and mushroom ceremonies in Mexico, especially attending to generational trauma.
