Ayahuasca is known to cause pretty serious vomiting and sometimes even diarrhea afterwards. Simply not eating for a few days would reduce the severity of this quite a bit. That seems like a good explanation for the practice all by itself. Fasting for ceremony ingesting plant medicines is only really necessary for that day, and even then most people will eat in the morning, and then just nothin

yes, it's awful, to the point of being almost unusable. I'm waiting anything from 10-25 seconds for a page to load and sometimes it takes 30-40 seconds before timing out. I could barely login to comment on this post. it needs fixing!

Hi Karen, I quickly read your reply last night, it was late when I got in. What you said about your dream is uncanny, what you described is a very typical ayahuasca vision. I'll reply in more detail this evening when I'm home from work. many thanks, Kev

Hi brucenyc1, I would imagine that the Druids of NW Europe used the psilocybin containing mushrooms Psilocybe semilanceata to enter altered /trance states of mind, generally known as liberty caps or magic mushrooms. I don't think mistletoe contains any psychoactive ingredients, I always thought it was more associated with fertility. Kev

Hi Karen, yes I forgot to mention that article earlier, glad you found it. It was from there I decided to contact Blue Morpho myself. I met Kira during my second visit in 2008 we participated in the same ceremonies. An amazingly brave person she drinks a full cup each time despite all the sufferring she puts up with. It really does take serious guts and will power to go that deep time after time.

I also meant to add that I've not yet tried smoking DMT, I expect I will one day when the time is right. I've smoked salvia divinorum a few times but find it very fast, unpredictable and difficult to make sense of. Kev

Hi Graham, I'm the opposite to you, psilocybin mushrooms affect me very easily and the effects come on with a rapid surge. Three and a half grammes between three people is plenty for me, not sure roughly how many that amounts to but I took some last summer at home on my own, counted up to about 30 and there were still quite a lot left so gave up. Put them on the scales and they weighed about t

Hi Graham, I haven't read any of those which you mention so will be sure to take a look at them, thanks for the recommendations. I've had my eye on Inner paths to Outer Space for a while now and actually changed my order from that to Psychotopic mind when I last purchsed so it's now next on the list unless something else creeps in first. I first came across aya whilst reading One River, Wade Dav

Hi Graham, Finished the book yesterday evening, I've thoroughly enjoyed reading it and am looking forward to the next in the series. This has made me realise how much I enjoy reading a good book and hopefully I'm now back into it after quite a long time of not really reading much at all. I will try and pen together a review for Amazon.co.uk in the next few days. I'm also going back to Iquitos

Hi Michael, you may find this article interesting. It has been posted before, not sure if you've already read it or not. the crux of the article is…. Abstract A speculative hypothesis is presented according to which the ancient Israelite religion was associated with the use of entheogens (mind-altering plants used in sacramental contexts). The hypothesis is based on a new look at texts of t

While I've not quite finished reading it yet, about ¾ through at the moment I thought I'd chip in and say what a fantastic book this is proving to be. Without saying too much so as to spoil it for others the pace is flat out, so much keeps happening all of the time you never know what is coming up next and when it does it’s always a surprise… this book isn't predictable. It’s had me close to tear

People have become so used to having their spirituality just given to them, or dictated, or indoctrinated, that they have failed to realize that ALL world religions stem from SOME dude's Transcendental Experience. And YOU can have one too. yup, true words. After drinking aya myself a few times and reading the artcile linked below Im convinced this is the case.

Amazon.co.uk Review Lying unnoticed in many museums around the world are large numbers of ancient artefacts fashioned out of rock crystal or glass; lenticular in shape, they are habitually described by archaeologists and cataloguers as decorative in purpose; in short, as costume jewellery.

Is this an alternative for someone who can't get the opportunity to drink ayahuasca? Not really, they're both quite different from one another, although saying that I've never chewed salvia leaves which is supposed to allow the effects to come on much slower and last for longer. For me ayahuasca is far more captivating than salvia. I guess the only alternative to ayahuasca would be to ingest dm

indiana, I've been to Blue Morpho twice now, I highly recommend them. It may be expensive but you couldn't be in safer hands. They will feed you, look after you, be there for you if you need anything. You get to go out and see the plants being collected and you will help to make the ayahuasca that you drink.

The sense that something latent was 'turned on' was undeniable and immediate. Mark, I can definitely say that my experiences with ayahuasca have 'woken something up in me that was asleep' Kev

Hi Slawek, Ok, I have to get a taxi to the airport in half an hour so for now I´ll copy in what I posted to Luke Hancock yesterday.... Well I'm back from Blue Morpho and currently killing time in Iquitos before my flight back to Lima and then back to the UK. I had a great time, all be it with some tricky and uncomfortable moments along the way, the ceremonies were all bursting with energy and e

Perfect timing, I'm sat here in Iquitos, Peru after spending a stint in the jungle drinking ayahuasca with a great bunch of people. What a time I had, it's a hard place to be at times but a wonderous, wonderous gracious gift, and it's all fresh in my mind so looking forward to discussions. keep well, Kev

hi, mmm.... I read that book too, and also one on the same subject by Ralph Ellis - Jesus Last of the Pharaohs. If I remember correctly - (I have actually managed to lose two copies of this believe it or not, and have not yet bought a third!) Please correct me if I am wrong here... Ahmed also says that King David was actually Thutmoses III or was it IV, and that there were two David's ? I sup
