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.

Pilgrimage to the Light? On the Threshold of a Dream: Sacred Plants, Passionate Dedication to Ideals and Healing by Richard Yensen

Pilgrimage to the Light? On the Threshold of a Dream: Sacred Plants, Passionate Dedication to Ideals and Healing by Richard Yensen | ayahuasca | Scoop.it

"The desire to incorporate ancient healing practices with sacred plants into modern medicine has been a central passion of my career as a clinician and psychedelic researcher for over forty years. During that time Mexico has offered me friendship, collegiality,adventure and wonder. At times I have felt when visiting first Nations in Mexico like I was stepping back into ancient times. The wonder and honor of knowing Maria Sabina, Don Ricardo, Niuweme and other healers and shamans has transformed my outlook on the practice of psychedelic medicine."

Jerónimo M.M.'s insight:

Absolutely fascinating read, never been a big fan of Castaneda, but the description of Salvador Roquet's pioneering work in psychedelic therapy is well worth it.  Hard to believe what was happening in Mexico more than 40 years ago.

Rant by Angel White Eyes

Rant by Angel White Eyes | ayahuasca | Scoop.it

It angers me when I see the media portraying us as these sad broken down people. I believe we’re anything but. Sure there’s alcoholism here, but so does everywhere else. They only focus on the alcoholism. Why does White Clay, Nebraska have to be shown anytime someone is talking about Pine Ridge?

I want to show the world what I see when I look at Pine Ridge. I see that we have one of the most beautiful and unique cultures. Our people are so proud. Our elders are filled with history that they love talking about. We know when to laugh and how to laugh. I cherish and love all these things about Pine Ridge.

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."
