    I agree, the older I get the more angry I become at the school system. Everything that is important is not even studied. Schools are a joke (for the most part)!

    Yes, the best movie simulation of an entheogenic or psychedelic trip I have ever seen.... from the French/ Mexican Peyote Western, "Renegade" aka "Blueberry".
    So in fact it was really a rendition of a peyote trip in northern Mexico. But hey, there's not a lot of difference, especially when facilitated by a tribal shaman.

    Thanks for clarifying that Rebus7 (except for the french/mexican part ???)
    I didn't know the film or context.
    The abundance of serpent symbolism seems to suggest Aya.

    It's really worth getting a copy of the DVD. The story line is good. The scenery in northern Mexico is stunning, and the soundtrack is brilliant, especially the long cello/ guitar duo on the closing credits.

    Each of the substances has it's own characteristics. Or, as might be said differently, each takes a person to a different range of chambers. LSD. ALD-52, mescaline, psilocibin, psilocin, DMT, DMT-MAOI (ayahuasca), Ketamine are all distinctly different in a variety of ways. It is certainly easy enough to make an ayahuasca type of potion. All the ingrediants are easily available. The locally brewed ayahuasca often has a variety of ingrediants that affects the flavor, both literally and effectively. The one caution is that any MAOI can cause death when taken with any of many other prescription and OTC drugs are in the system including opioids, antihistamines, stimulents and others. This also includes foods such as aged cheeses, cured meats and other such items if I rwemember correctly. I am experienced with all of the listed items but some much more so than others. I also did combinations of some things including hashoil.

    Most were also very enhancing of alchemical sex providing massively extraordinary experiences.

    The guide in these experiences is quite important and influences to a sizable extent where the journey goes and how it procedes.

    Got back from the temple about two weeks ago...just got round to sorting out a few pic’s and vid’s

    The whole experience was amazing and I think Dev has covered most of it.

    I have a whole bunch of Pic’s but they are like holiday snaps so I won’t bore you with the majority.
    Click on the pics to enlarge.

    I don’t think there has been a pic of the Ayahuasca itself so below you can see a cross section of the
    Ayahuasca Vine.



    The Meastras/os took us for a walk in the jungle to show us some of the plants they create the
    medicines from. They said that a plant will have some characteristic of what it can be used for.

    For example below is a grass that grows in tufts and they say it looks like clumps of hair and so a
    medicine is made from this which is purported to make hair grow strong.



    Can you guess the next one?



    If you guessed it as a jungle Viagra you’d be right.

    I have put in a few vid clips to give an Idea of what the temple grounds are like. These were taken
    on an ordinary camera so the quality is a bit rough and they may take a while to download...still...

    On the morning of the second day we had to partake in what they call a ‘Vomitivo’ this consists of
    drinking a plant medicine and then as much water as you can until...well see for yourself.

    Half of us did this while the other half were steamed under blankets...this was swapped over for the
    next morning so everyone gets a go. This was the start of the cleansing process.

    The Maloka is the main building where
    everything happens. Here you can see it set up ready for the evening ceremony...the bowls are not just for show.

    Here is a trip from the Dining Room to the Maloka.

    Here is another from the Maloka to the Dam via the Toilets.
    The Dam is collecting water from a small stream that runs through the temple grounds.

    The reason the toilets are included is that they somehow become somewhat of a sacred place
    during the ceremonies.

    The accommodation was in the form of Tambos , huts on stilts with palm leaf roofs.

    Here is a clip from the Dining Room to my Tambo.

    The weather was great although it is a rain forest and so here is what it is like when it rains.

    Some call the Ayahuasca ceremonies La Purga (The Purge) and it is certainly all that. You purge
    by vomit, sweat, number twos , tears without crying and unexplainable yawns...you have to hear
    them. When you come out the other side you feel so clean you don’t want to eat...well you do because
    you’re starving but it seems a shame to mess it up. I lost two stone(14 lbs) about 6.4kgs...I’ve put a
    little back on but kept most of it off; sticking to the diet, sort of.

    Its the most amazing experience and should be missed by none...

    Thanks... you covered some I missed... like the yawns. I am still sorting my experience out... and as you know difficult to explain in words.

    Still the sceptic mind informs me that it is all in my brain and only enhanced by this "drug", but unlike other altered states caused by other substances ayahuasca does differ in that it doesn't only feel and look real; but is.

    Don’t let the delusion of reality confuse you regarding the reality of the illusion.

    Also cool you went... most of the time people just say they will - but you did, when we talked about it. As it is rare I'd thought I'd point it out!

    Found an Ayahuasca retreat here in the UK...was mind boggling. Four days three ceremonies. Just carried on from the temple in Peru...nothing changed but wow! some really good revelations.

    Thanks for the introduction to this Dev, it's opened my mind to so much more.

    Namaste
