Shaman & Ayahuasca: Journeys to Sacred Realms
Shamans have been using Ayahuasca– a psychoactive plant-based brew–for thousands of years, because they believe the vivid visions it induces can help heal physical, psychological and emotional blocks. Shot on location in jungles and river towns of South America, this program from filmmaker Michael Wiese discusses Ayahuasca’s history, healing properties, transformational aspects and modern-day uses. Includes the last filmed interview with visionary painter and former shaman Pablo Amaringo, plus the music of Peruvian recording artist Artur Menas Salas. 73 minutes.
