AYAHUASCA AND THE WEB OF LIFE
Speaker: Rachel Harris
There’s growing evidence that ayahuasca has a rich potential for therapeutic healing. This presentation is based on data collected in North America including self-reports of 81 people and interviews with an additional fifty. It was found that after drinking this potent tea, people reported: greater self-acceptance, improved mood, increased feelings of love and compassion in interpersonal relationships, reduced alcohol intake, and improved health behaviors. Questions remain, however, about how these changes happen and how they can be integrated. Also who is authorized to serve this powerful medicine and what does an authentic apprenticeship involve?
