The Nature of Ayahuasca (documentary)


The Nature of Ayahuasca documentary
(The Tranquil Eye, April 2, 2020) A documentary exploring the use of ayahuasca as a holistic medicine.

Ayahausca is a traditional plant medicine from the Amazon jungle used to treat a variety of physical and psychological illnesses and conditions -- including chronic clinical depression.

This film explores the use of the ayahausca as a holistic medicine, challenging stigmas around its use and helping people become more conscious and ethical consumers of the plant if that's the path they choose. 

This documentary does not cover everything one needs to be aware of if one is considering work with ayahuasca. Do research.
