Bolivia Gives Legal Rights To The Earth

Bolivia Gives Legal Rights To The Earth | Shamanism in the 21st Century | Scoop.it

Bolivia is to become the first country in the world to give nature comprehensive legal rights in an effort to halt climate change and the exploitation of the natural world.  Once fully approved, the legislation will provide the Earth with rights to: life and regeneration; biodiversity and freedom from genetic modification; pure water; clean air; naturally balanced systems; restoration from the effects of human activity; and freedom from contamination.  The legislation is based on broader principles of living in harmony with the Earth and prioritising the “collective good.”

On the Origins of Ayahuasca | Singing to the Plants

On the Origins of Ayahuasca | Singing to the Plants | Shamanism in the 21st Century | Scoop.it

The ayahuasca drink is made from the stem of the ayahuasca vine, Banisteriopsis caapi. Sometimes, but rarely, the drink is made from the ayahuasca vine alone; almost invariably other plants are added. These additional ingredients are most often the leaves of any of three compañeros, companion plants—the shrub chacruna, Psychotria viridis; the closely related shrub sameruca, Psychotria carthaginensis; and a vine variously called ocoyagé, chalipanga, chagraponga, and huambisa, Diplopterys cabrerana.
