    Dev, what does it cost to go on one of these 'missions'?

    Edit: is there anyone that lives close to this special place where they do the shamanic experiences, that would be willing to escort me from an airport to this location? Being part of the White Supremicy Nations, makes me pretty scared to go anywhere else, because, well, the world has good reason to hate us lol

    That I cannot answer. Anything from 100 dollars to 5000 dollars + travel expenses. But the price is irrelevant. In retrospect my own initiations would be worth (to me) 10 000 dollars and I'd pay it gladly. I obviously did not pay anything even close to that... just trying to illustrate that "whatever the cost" just do it.

    It can be done cheap and be good or shit... and expensive and good and shit... it is all about where you go, who you meet etc etc.

    It is all part of the journey. Just be aware there are Sith-Shamans. You don't want to run into one of them. I am friends with many people who run retreats in style, big scale, small scale and no frills... but I never say where to go because I do not want to be responsible for anything. It is dangerous (although on paper Ayahuasca is extremely safest a substance if made correctly).

    But can be dangerous if done with the wrong people, with the wrong brew etc... so if someone wants to go to the Amazon or elsewhere then that has to be on their own terms. All I can say is if the place chosen is potentially bad. That I can divulge. There are some to stay away from.

    And I personally would not use a Gringo Shaman. But that is just me.

    Mainly @ Andro: Can anyone recommend a professional Shaman in Australia that they know and trust?

    To piggyback on what Dev is saying (and to add more), while a Shaman is certainly a must for a traditional experience, a Shaman is by no means needed to facilitate a fruitful journey. You can do this all in the comfort of your own room and learn just as much, if not more, than what you would learn by going through with a full-fledged traditional ceremony. As an experienced psychonaut myself, I do not recommend this (journeying by yourself unattended) for most people, just be aware this this option does remain, and that a trip far away to meet with a Shaman is not at all obligatory.

    I would never recommend doing it alone... unless very experienced and even then shit can go sideways.

    However a true traditional Shaman of the Amazon in regards to Ayahuasca is at least 50 % of the whole thing... it is totally awesome. They should not be weighed lightly. A really good one can do amazing work. I mean it can be powerful even without using Ayahuasca even if you have a good Ayahuasquero [Ayahuasca Shaman].

    @Dev, good to know concerning the cravings. I will patiently wait.

    "Our" Shaman does not recommend doing it without supervision of an experienced Shaman with crew. I'm just repeating what he said to me on the way to the ceremony.

    @Elixirmixer: The ceremony costed us around $25.- without transportation. Personally i would not want to miss the experience i made. And where i live for example, they do not hate the white man, they are generally very friendly and hospitable. And for the indigenous tribes, hate is something what they generally detest, as far as i can tell.

    I am talking about Colombia. But as it is with Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia or Brazil or any other part of the world, the price depends on the Shaman. Personally i would put the Shamans knowledge, skills and reputation before the price.

    Perhaps I shall do some Australian pioneering, by finding a repretable shaman, and attending some of their offered services. The idea of shamanism has always been a fond one of mine, but the idea that I can hire a well trained shaman, and that it could assist to speed my journey, is a very appealing concept indeed.

    It can be as cheap as Quarrox mentioned, because the prices I said would include food and a bed... if you do many ceremonies over many days. So yes, depends on the set-up.

    I think many ceremonies in a row is very good. There is a program I've found where you do 70 ceremonies in 90 days and you train under one of the Shamans... and you are shown how to "find" your own Icaros. This is something I have in mind to do.
