Not all illicit drugs are used for pleasurable recreational purposes. Some substances hold great promise in helping to heal conditions like addiction, dysphoria, and other mental and physical health ailments. Ayahuasca is one such substance. This brew made from a combination of leaves and vines from specific plants found in South America is offered at a number of shamanic retreat centers for those seeking healing and catharsis through the reprocessing of trauma and past issues that may be interfering with present-day life functioning.
Seth Fitzgerald from The Drug Classroom and your host and counselor Glen Marshall provide a look down the rabbit-hole and walk-through of the Ayahuasca experience as well as what to consider in regards to best practices and safe decision-making when seeking and using this very powerful psychedelic.
