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.

Ayahuasca centers - retreat guru

Ayahuasca centers - retreat guru | ayahuasca | Scoop.it

Safety precautions: It is very important to make sure that you are choosing a friendly and safe environment or retreat center with a genuine shaman or healer. It is not advisable to drink Ayahuasca alone, under the guidance of someone without experience, or (needless to say!) with someone who might have harmful intentions. Unfortunately, there are people who use Ayahuasca to exploit other people for power, money or sex. And, I almost forgot, don’t expect to enjoy the taste of Ayahuasca -- it is very bitter!

Jerónimo M.M.'s insight:

Ayahuasca + fitness center.  Together.  I've been thinking now for some time that since we don't really have a place for shamanism in our culture, we'll probably force it into whatever existing niche we can find, at first I thought it'd be "alternative medicines" but lately I am thinking it will be the "Wellness Industry."

Contributions of medicinal plants to the Gross National Happiness in Bhutan

The medicinal plants and the associated Bhutanese traditional medicine (BTM) are protected by the country’s constitution and receive both government support and acceptance by the wider public. More than 1000 medicinal plants are described in the BTM but currently collects only 300 species for daily formulations of BTM. These medicinal plants have been one of the drivers of the ‘Gross National Happiness (GNH)’ and biodiscovery projects in Bhutan. However, no review covering the systematic evaluations of the contributions of medicinal plants and the BTM to the GNH and biodiscovery exist till date.

Back in the 50's there were legitimate medical experiments with LSD but psychedelic drugs in the labs were side-swiped by their use on the street. And as a growing counter-culture dropped acid, governments picked up restrictions making research almost impossible. Until now.
