Psychedelics in Unlocking the Unconscious: From Cancer to Addiction - Gabor Mate

Complex unconscious psychological stresses underlie and contribute to all chronic medical conditions, from cancer and addiction to depression and multiple sclerosis. Therapy that is assisted by psychedelics, in the right context and with the right support, can bring these dynamics to the surface and thus help a person liberate themselves from their influence. Special focus will be given to the speaker's experience in treating addictions and other stress-related conditions, both with aboriginal people and in non-indigenous contemporary healing circles. This work has been done under the guidance of indigenous Peruvian shamans and their Western apprentices.

Jerónimo M.M.'s insight:

Well worth a listen

The Three Sources Of Truth « The Sacred Science

The Three Sources Of Truth « The Sacred Science | ayahuasca | Scoop.it

I have a special video interview to share today that we filmed on a high jungle plateau in the Peruvian Amazon. But first, a little backstory.

Twenty two years ago, Dr. Jacques Mabit, a clinically trained physician from France opened up Takiwasi, a remote healing facility that specializes in treating drug addicts via natural medicines from the Amazon Rain Forest. Employing a variety of shamans from the surrounding region, the hybrid healing center has made quite a name for itself. Takiwasi boasts a 70% success rate in fully rehabilitating cocaine and heroin addicts who are willing to undergo the full 3 month treatment period.

"Ayahuasca is penetrating American society, and its highly successful people, way more than any other psychedelic," says Rick Doblin, the head of MAPS, the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies, a nonprofit research association based in Santa Cruz, California. "The number of people who have had incredible experiences with ayahuasca, if they could all surface in the public sphere at the same time, it would be absolutely astonishing."

This article focuses on the legal history of Santo Daime (SD) though other lineages also have international profiles, the most widespread being the União de Vegetal (UDV).  After bubbling and brewing away for millennia in the Amazon, ayahuasca began seeping out through the foliage at the turn of the 20th century. This powerful visionary tea was adopted by rubber tapper communities in what is now the Brazil-Bolivia-Peru borderland, and various sects emerged, including Santo Daime. A syncretic mix of Catholicism, Spiritualism, and indigenous shamanism, it spread to the rest of Brazil in the 80s, and today there are groups dotted around Latin American, Europe, and the US, as well as in Japan, India, Israel, and other places[i]
