Terrence Howard, Lindsay Lohan and Jim Carrey all have imbibed a tea from the Amazon (rain forest, not company) that also has made its way onscreen ('Wanderlust,' 'While We're Young'). Now, a critical mass of L.A.'s urban hippies are gathering in groups and projectile vomiting (and worse) on their way to enlightenment.

by Stephanie Marohn The Shamanic View of Mental Illness In the shamanic view, mental illness signals “the birth of a healer,” explains Malidoma Patrice Somé. Thus, mental disorders are spiritual emergencies, spiritual crises, and need to be regarded as such to aid the healer in being born. What those in the West view as mental Read More
It is no surprise that the corporate, pharmaceutical industry is obsessed with profit. Shoveling selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) into the mouths of people suffering from depression on a daily basis is one of the most lucrative things they can do. If you can get a person hooked on your drug for life, that's a lot of profit, and, so, that is what they have been doing. Money, sickeningly, still speaks. In a world of abundance and technologies like vertical gardens, ever increasingly cheap solar energy and 3D-printable houses, we should be well on our way to supplying every human with food, water, clothing and shelter as a basic human right, though in order to wake people up and make this happen, they'll need to get off the zombie-drugs. Enter: psychedelic medicine. It's not something you get hooked on. It's not even something you take often, but people constantly report a single or double use changing their lives, many of which are able to kick anti-depressants after the prolific experience that accompanies it. So, why are they illegal? Well, if everyone had an awakening while using psilocyben or LSD in a controlled setting, faced their fears and overcame their demons, there would be no need for anti-depressants, and corporations that profit from pill pushing know this. They send their money to corrupt US officials that keep them scheduled as a dangerous and illegal substance even though there is immense (and continuing) evidence for their blossoming healing power. In this excerpt from the Joe Rogan Experience, Dennis McKenna explains the corruption that is keeping people from seeing the light that is psychoactive and psychedelic drugs as medicine.
“Death Is Not The End come with a much needed reissue of Mushroom Ceremony of the Mazatec Indians of Mexico. Recorded on the night of July 21/22, 1956 by V.P. & R. Gordon Wasson, these are rough and ready field recordings featuring the voice of Maria Sabina (1894-1985)…
“…a Mexican curandera who would perform healing vigils known as veladas in Huautla de Jimenez, Oaxaca where all participants would ingest psilocybin mushrooms (Maria’s holy children), as a
Healings, mantras, sacrifices, coupled with several other rituals form a very intense and powerful cultural practice known as as Shamanism. Cradled in between India and China lies Nepal that is home to more than sixty different ethnic groups and one of the places where this belief continues to exist and even thrive. Until the late 1950s, when Nepal’s borders were opened to the West, this land was a huge mystery to outsiders and even today, the rich culture and heritage of this country leave many spellbound, and that’s where the small town of Sayrubesi becomes omnipresent.
Located around 13 kilometres from the Chinese border, Sayrubesi exudes many of the features that have come to demarcate small towns. Filled with hotels, ATMs, buses, and convenience shops, built nearly entirely for the tourists, it’s become popular owing its position as the starting point to the Gosaikunda and Latang treks. An area steeped in tradition, it is also where culture and rituals intertwine with each other. While you might find practitioners of these rituals across the country, Sayrubesi is considered to be the the spiritual hub for the Jhankris.
Polish Photographer Martushka Fromeast had the opportunity to witness the various rituals of the community—a privilege not granted to many— such as healings, exorcisms, mythic visions and pujas to remove obstacles that may occur in one’s life. Her series, I Am Not Scared Of The Night is a powerful representation of the importance of the Bompo rituals in the everyday lives of the villagers.
Based on an animistic belief that respects Mother Earth and all living beings, the Nepali shamanism is a spiritual practice that has coexisted over millennia with varying cultures, systems of government, and organized religious practice. While Hinduism, Animism and Buddhism are the major religions practiced in Nepal, the majority of people turn to the Dhami/Jhankri/ Bompos for help, regardless of their religion. Popularly known as shamans, the jhankris are mediators with the sacred world. Nepalese believe that spirits and people walk the same paths and that shamanistic rituals are integral not only for the individual body, but for society as a whole.The role of Jhankri is to re-establish the harmony between all things visible and invisible in order to preserve the ecology of the land. The Shamans are not just healers, but also story-tellers, dancers, musicians and artists. It is believed that they acquire their numerous talents by the help of their personal helping spirits, ancestral deities, elemental spirits and guides.
One might question the relevance and authenticity of shamanism in the modern world, but its long standing position in cultural history simply cannot be denied. It is a belief system that holds an understanding of the bond we share with our natural surroundings. It is shrouded with misconceptions and stereotypes but speaks volumes about spirituality in a manner that touches a part of every one of us on some level or the other. It is this duality that comes together as one in Formeast’s portraits of the same–perhaps a small but necessary step into a world of beliefs that are still important to so many today.
Article by Carolina Dowell Co-Creator of Tree of Light Retreats Over the last year I have, on several occasions, read Ayahuasca forum posts or articles by people who either seem to have very minimal experience with this sacred medicine, or haven't worked…
Founded in 1986, the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit research and educational organization that develops medical, legal, and cultural contexts for people to benefit from the careful uses of psychedelics and marijuana.MAPS furthers its mission by: Developing psychedelics and marijuana into prescription medicines; Training therapists and working to establish a network of treatment centers; Supporting scientific research into spirituality, creativity, and neuroscience; and educating the public honestly about the risks and benefits of psychedelics and marijuana.
In one of the great tragedies of our age, indigenous traditions, stories, cultures and knowledge are winking out across the world. Whole languages and mythologies are vanishing, and in some cases even entire indigenous groups are falling into extinction. This is what makes the news that a tribe in the Amazon have created a 500-page encyclopedia of their traditional medicine all the more remarkable.
