Hi,

So, you see aya ceremonies as being recommended, but not enough to go to South American yet enough to find one in the UK...

I would definitely recommend an ayahuasca ceremony to anyone that feels they may benefit from the experience. I suppose the majority of attendees undertake some prior research and have an outline idea of what’s involved. I would jump at the chance to experience ayahuasca in South America. However, it’s a financial commitment and a time commitment that I cannot really justify to myself or my family at this stage in my life. Should that ever change, I’ll be on a plane bound for Brazil. I was very fortunate to be introduced to a U.K. based retreat by a friend. These retreats are understandably very secretive. These too come at a price - albeit one that I can just about justify to myself and my wife.

May I ask this then. What would you say are the benefits you've gotten from smoking DMT alone vs in your better group experiences?

The main differences are the experiential results from the chosen route of administration (ROA). Smoking DMT is an exceptionally intense yet very short-lived experience (a few mins); whereas drinking ayahuasca in ceremony lasts for several hours. In terms of opportunities for self-awareness (at a very deep level) and self-development, ayahuasca will prove itself to be a very powerful medicine. The group dynamic is relevant in creating an overall ceremonial atmosphere but the experience remains profoundly tailored to the individual. In terms of smoking, as the article stated, I believe much of the change in me occurred through wilfully subduing my ego’s incessant appeals against smoking DMT, whenever I decided to commit to the molecule. The smoked ROA gave me much greater insight into the esoteric mechanics of these experiences and a very much greater appreciation that the typical DMT experience is one that attracts a powerful non-physical entity into one’s immediate setting - effectively giving it licence to interact with the user in a manner of ways. This became all the more appreciable in an outdoor setting.

Overall, I would say ayahuasca is by far the more beneficial to one’s health and well-being, whereas smoked DMT is an incredibly powerful tool for securing profound interaction with nature’s higher hidden denizens. Both are life-changing experiences.

Thanks for opportunity to further the discussion.
