The shamans and curanderos of the Peruvian northern coast use staffs like this one, carved from the wood of a chonta palm, as implements used in connection with their healing mesas. Arranged in an upright row at the head of this ceremonial altar along with swords or long knives, these staffs hold the energy of each of the shaman’s many helpful, healing saints and spirits. These staffs are also typically used as a part of the shamanic all-night San Pedro ceremony. Insert yours directly into the earth or in a container of sand at the top edge of your mesa. Because of the handmade nature, your staff may vary slightly from the image. Hand carved in Peru.
