Ayahuasca: Journey into Infinity
Let's journey into psychedelics ("mind making") medicines. These are not recreational substances. Set and setting are key -- mindset and place of ingestion and care while under their influence.

Have a "flight attendant" (a compassionate observer who can intervene and assist the journey) and clear flight instructions. In this way we guarantee a safe journey and a deep healing experience that is positive and medicinal.

This episode is an overview that explores the history of psychedelics. It was made as a part of a team project with Collective Evolution.

The first recorded use of psychedelics does not exist because it stretches way too far back in time. So many theories surround when and how its use began. Terrence McKenna is the pioneer of many psychedelic theories.

He was the first to bring forth the theory that early prehistoric humans found psychedelic mushrooms and began conceiving things in a new way.

Many ancient cave drawings depict almost identical images of humanoids with geometric waves shooting out of their heads and people with mushroom heads. Full video description and sources at the website: spiritsciencecentral.com.
