New Tales from the Spirit Vine
Following last year's successful event, we are pleased to present the 3rd annual Ayahuasca Monologues with five new visionary stories about the renowned sacred brew of the Amazon. For centuries, shamans have drunk this powerful concoction to heal illness, obtain mystical insights, contact spirit guides, and explore magical worlds. Hear of experiences both miraculous and terrifying when Westerners access ayahuasca's incredible gifts.
Opening Icaros (medicine songs) by Manuel Rufino, an ayahuasquero and healer from Native American traditions.
Introduction by Daniel Pinchbeck, author of “2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl" and editorial director of Evolver.
