There’s a fascinating sub-culture springing up all over the world full of earnest psychic adventurers, working with this powerful medicine called Ayahuasca from the Amazon. It’s a plant that’s brewed into a syrupy liquid that takes its users on an eight hour journey into the depths of their insecurities, shadows and secret glory. It’s not at all a party drug. Rather, many are seeking it out as a way of taking a serious look at themselves and what they might be missing out on. It’s an interesting time in history for this plant to be gaining a large following. We are obviously out of sync with nature, and this is one way some people are trying to reconnect.
