How Many Ayahuasca Drinkers Are There in Brazil?

As a Brazilian ayahuasca scholar, I am frequently asked about the number of ayahuasca drinkers in my country. This is a tricky question, since reasonably accurate answers are elusive. Apart from the União do Vegetal, or UDV, a Brazilian ayahuasca religion with chapters in a few other countries, there seems to be no other local religious group that could provide an exact number of their members. The UDV is acknowledged as the largest Brazilian ayahuasca religion. If a religion is understood as an organized religious group with central headquarters, this information is probably correct. With the lack of unequivocal information, scholars

Crossing Continents - Ayahuasca: Fear and Healing in the Amazon - BBC Sounds

Crossing Continents - Ayahuasca: Fear and Healing in the Amazon - BBC Sounds | Ayahuasca News | Scoop.it
Growing numbers of tourists are travelling to the Peruvian Amazon to drink ayahuasca, a traditional plant medicine said to bring about a higher state of consciousness. Foreigners come looking for spiritual enlightenment or help with mental health problems like trauma, depression, and addiction.

But not everyone is happy about Peru’s booming ayahuasca tourism industry. A group of indigenous healers are fighting back against what they see as the exploitation and appropriation of their cultural heritage by foreigners - who run most of the ayahuasca retreats popular with tourists. This coming together of cultures has thrown up another serious problem too: vulnerable women being sexually abused while under the influence of charismatic healers and this powerful psychedelic.

Yagé is Our Life - Documentary - YouTube

Yagé is Our Life is a documentary film captured in the Putumayo region of Colombia. For centuries the Indigenous peoples of the Amazon have been using yagé (sometimes known as ayahuasca) for the health, social cohesion and spiritual guidance of their communities. Yagé is rich in the potent psychedelic substance DMT and for these indigenous groups it is sacred, allowing them access to ancient wisdom and the spirits of nature. In their ceremonies, the taitas or traditional doctors use yagé to treat their patients for physical and emotional illnesses and as a guide for making decisions.


The communities are now facing many new threats to their traditional way of life. Primarily, the commercialisation of their yagé medicine and foreign pressures exerted on their homelands by industrialised civilisation. This film gives indigenous leaders from the region a platform to discuss these issues and the importance of yagé as a living tradition in their communities.


Winner of the Respect Human Rights Film Festival, 2017.


En Español:

Yagé es Nuestra Vida es una película documental filmado en la región de Putumayo en Colombia. Durante siglos, los pueblos indígenas de la Amazonía han estado utilizando el yagé (a veces conocido como ayahuasca) para la salud, la cohesión social y la guía espiritual de sus comunidades. Yagé es rico en la potente sustancia psicodélica DMT y para estos grupos indígenas es sagrado, lo que les permite acceder a la sabiduría ancestral y a los espíritus de la naturaleza. En sus ceremonias, las taitas o los médicos tradicionales usan el yagé para tratar a sus pacientes por enfermedades físicas y emocionales y como guía para tomar decisiones.

Las comunidades ahora enfrentan muchas amenazas nuevas a su forma de vida tradicional. Principalmente, la comercialización de su medicina yagé y las presiones extranjeras ejercidas en sus países de origen por la civilización industrializada. Esta película ofrece a los líderes indígenas de la región una plataforma para discutir estos temas y la importancia del yagé como una tradición viva en sus comunidades.

Ganador del 'Respect Human Rights Film Festival', 2017, la película se estrenará en YouTube el sábado 21 de diciembre de 2019.

Frontiers | The Impact of Ayahuasca on Suicidality: Results From a Randomized Controlled Trial | Pharmacology

Suicide is a major public health problem. Given increasing suicide rates and limitations surrounding current interventions, there is an urgent need for innovative interventions for suicidality. Although ayahuasca has been shown to target mental health concerns associated with suicidality (i.e., depression and hopelessness), research has not yet explored the impact of ayahuasca on suicidality. Therefore, we conducted secondary analyses of a randomized placebo-controlled trial in which individuals with treatment-resistant depression were administered one dose of ayahuasca (n = 14) or placebo (n = 15). Suicidality was assessed by a trained psychiatrist at baseline, as well as 1 day, 2 days, and 7 days after the intervention. A fixed-effects linear mixed model, as well as between and within-groups Cohen's d effect sizes were used to examine changes in suicidality. Controlling for baseline suicidality, we found a significant effect for time (p p = .088). At all time points, we found medium between-group effect sizes (i.e., ayahuasca vs. placebo; day 1 Cohen’s d = 0.58; day 2 d = 0.56; day 7 d = 0.67), as well as large within-group (ayahuasca; day 1 Cohen's d = 1.33; day 2 d = 1.42; day 7 d = 1.19) effect sizes, for decreases in suicidality. Conclusions: This research is the first to explore the impact of ayahuasca on suicidality. The findings suggest that ayahuasca may show potential as an intervention for suicidality. We highlight important limitations of the study, potentia

Atossa Soltani & Manari Ushigua | Protegiendo el corazón del mundo

El río Amazonas es el más grande del planeta, con un caudal mayor al de los 6 siguientes mayores ríos del mundo combinados. Ese enorme caudal de agua representa solamente el 40% de toda el agua de la Amazonía: el resto la manejan las plantas. Un solo árbol amazónico evapora unos 1.000 litros de agua diarios a la atmósfera, y en toda la selva amazónica se cree que hay cerca de 400.000 millones de árboles.

Esa gigantesca cantidad de agua evaporada es la que forma las colosales corrientes de humedad atmosférica que hacen llover por todo el planeta. El Amazonas literalmente bombea la lluvia para que llegue a todo el mundo.

Por eso, la selva amazónica no solo hace la función de los pulmones del planeta: también es su corazón, bombeando el agua, la sangre de Gaia, a todo el resto del organismo planetario del que somos parte… y estamos destruyendo.

Atossa Soltani es la directora de estrategia global de la Sacred Headwaters Initiative, una iniciativa de Amazon Watch para proteger una de las zonas más importantes y críticas de la amazonía. Manari Ushigua es el líder espiritual de los Sapara, el pueblo nativo ecuatoriano que vive y protege esa zona del Amazonas desde tiempos inmemoriales.
