Mateo Kingman: tierra, rap y ayahuasca en la Amazonía

Mateo Kingman: tierra, rap y ayahuasca en la Amazonía | Ayahuasca News | Scoop.it

P: ¿Cómo ha influido la cultura chamánica en su música?
R: Yo trabajo con las plantas amazónicas desde los 17 años por iniciativa de mis papás. Creemos que desarrollan un proceso de distintas tonalidades, especialmente físicas, y ayudan a la prevención de enfermedades. La ayahuasca, por ejemplo, trabaja en el sistema digestivo y la sangre, y te ayuda a mantenerlo limpio y te previene de enfermar. De todas formas, también te permite entrar en un proceso espiritual y psicológico.
P: Que sus padres le dieran ayahuasca podría ser interpretado por muchos como una irresponsabilidad, como que se le está dando droga a un hijo
R: Las plantas han estado clasificadas dentro del mundo de las drogas pero creo que es ignorancia y desconocimiento.

A Deep History of Tobacco in Lowland South America

A Deep History of Tobacco in Lowland South America | Ayahuasca News | Scoop.it

This chapter traces the origins of tobacco use and its variation in Lowland South America. It begins by examining new evidence on the origins of several species in the genus Nicotiana and follows their dispersal across South America. It then mines the archaeological and ethnographic records to explore variation in indigenous tobacco consumption and the cultural materials associated with it. The second half of the chapter describes tobacco’s rise as a valuable commodity during the colonial period, providing observations made by visiting scholars and scientists. Turning attention to present-day rural communities of Brazilian Amazonia, an examination is provided of tobacco production on anthropogenic soils characteristic of archaeological sites, thus linking contemporary tobacco cultivation to the extended history of Amerindian settlement and horticultural practice. By synthesizing archaeological and botanical findings while also examining human societies’ consumptive and productive relationships to tobacco through time, this chapter seeks to illuminate the deep history of tobacco.

Magic Mushrooms, Tourism, and the Erasure of Mazatec Culture - SSDP | Ayahuasca News | Scoop.it
Though there previously existed plenty of healers, scientists like the Wasson’s and the tourist community took advantage of the hospitality of curandera María Sabina and turned her into a spectacle, or celebrity. Many profited off of her name while the true purpose of the mushroom rituals, to heal, was distorted into “finding god” by Westerners who did not respect the culture.

11 de julho, aniversário do marinheiro de luz Edilsom Fernandes da Silva, presidente da Barquinha de Ji-Paraná, Rondônia | | Jornal Grande Bahia – JGB | Ayahuasca News | Scoop.it
Edilsom Fernandes e Juarez Bomfim na AYA2016 Corria o mês de junho de 1989. O jovem Edilsom Fernandes da Silva (Fernando) chegara a Rio Branco – Acre, com o intuito de conhecer a igreja ayahuasqueira da Barquinha, presidida pelo sr. Manuel Hipólito de Araújo (10.06.1921 – 17.08.2000). Ele já conhecia a luz da hoasca, porém, seria a primeira vez que provaria do Santo Daime. Fernando era então — e continua sendo — um buscador espiritual. Por herança paterna e vocação pessoal. Filiado desde 1981 ao Círculo Esotérico da Comunhão do Pensamento (CECP), filiou-se depois a AMORC (Antiga e Mística Ordem Rosacruz) e a Ordem do Graal na Terra. E continua ainda hoje a ser um eterno estudante das ordens ocultistas existentes no Mundo Terra. Ele foi muito bem recebido pela comunidade religiosa daquele centro espírita, Casa de Jesus e da Virgem Maria, tomou o Daime oferecido pelo sr. Antonio Lopes da Silva (26.06.1921 — 09.11.2008), e sentou para esperar o início dos trabalhos. É cantado o salmo
