    Default The Ayahuasca Experience

    "All negative thoughts, shamans believe, are dark spirits speaking to us, trying to scare us into reacting; the spirits then feed on our reactivity, growing stronger and more formidable until they finally rule over us. This is how, Hamilton suggests, addictions and psychological disorders develop in people."

    Very cool article Div6.

    Shamans of the Amazon...by Australian filmmaker Dean Jeffries.

    An amazing documentary detailing the Ayahuasca experience and its long and short term effects, oil companies, the war on drugs, current governments, etc., etc.

    My wife and I are saving money and preparing ourselves in other ways for a trip to South America to partake in the ceremony.

    I would desperately love to have the Ayahuasca experience, ideally somewhere other than near the Amazon and mosquitos, though. I'd love to get the brew and then head off into the redwoods in Marin County.

    I saw some Ayahuasca in the Shamanic healers shop in Brighton a couple of years ago. Apparently it tastes like s--t. But it wouldn't be advisable to take it in a city unsupervised. Mathew Delooze of One Ball Radio went to Bahia, Brazil to take it and he has written about his experience on the One Ball Radio Web Site.

    Stuart Wilde leads ayahuasca workshops in Ecuador, I've seen it mentioned on his website. I think David Icke did as well; he describes his experience of taking the plant extract in "Tales from the Time Loop."

    Lightbulb Serpent and the Rainbow

    The Serpent and the Rainbow is a 1985 book by Wade Davis investigating the process of making zombies via ethnobotanical poisons and the poisoning of Clairvius Narcisse in Haiti. It was made into a horror film in 1988 which was very loosely based on the book.
