Discussion with Dr. Vedant Arun of Nirvanic Naturals

Dr. Vedant Arun & Rebecca Hayden discuss our relationship with personal power and how that unfolds in our lives. Vedant shares his story of how Ayahusca created a specific path for him to pursue work with a unique healing molecule called C60. During his journey of creating an organization that offers C60, Vedant was able to work through a lot of personal barriers relating to personal power and money. Ayahuasca often sends us on challenging missions that move us outside of our comfort zone but help us to integrate lessons and grow personally and we benefit as a result. Vedant’s story is an excellent example of this and he shares the insights he gained along the way, the tools that presented themselves to help him and the many confirmations he received which continued to provide inspiration and validation. We also discuss our experiences of telepathy and Vedant shares about some of his scientific work around this phenomenon. This work will prove that our thoughts have impact on others and the world around us. It’s fascinating work that impacts all of us on levels we’re not even aware of most of the time. This kind of work has the capacity to change our experience and our world enormously.

Discussion with Carlos Tanner of the Ayahuasca Foundation

On this episode we discuss relationships & acknowledging different perspectives. We talk about raising kids while learning from the medicines, growing with our kids and sharing our beliefs in spirits and other entities based on our lived experiences. We discuss our relationships with plant medicines and how personal and real they are. We discuss ‘giving up’ suffering – habits, illnesses, beliefs that don’t serve us and identifying the reasons we hang onto them – the ‘payoffs’. We venture into the topic of trauma in the body and how Western medicine compartmentalizes treatment of illnesses. We delve into how powerful the mind is in creating our reality, how we can dismantle these constructs – choose not to believe - and how this impacts our experience with plant medicines.

Discussion with Jonathan Glazer about the #ThankYouPlantMedicine campaign

Rebecca Hayden & Jonathan Glazer discuss coming out of the entheogenic closet and telling our stories to de-stigmatize plant medicine experiences and healing modalities. We discuss the #ThankYouPlantMedicine campaign designed to not only encourage and support people who want to tell their stories but also to inspire openness and acceptance of these transformational stories that have brought about such healing, insight and growth. Join us to learn more about this campaign and the kinds of things that have already come out of it and our plans and resources to encourage people to ‘come out’ with their own stories on 2/20/2020.

Discussion with Lynette Allen

Lynette Allen and Rebecca Hayden talk about the feminine rising, Ayahuasca’s role in this and the unique opportunity for women and men to bond in a deep way through Ayahuasca. We share experiences in the workplace and discuss the positive changes we’re seeing in both men and women due to women’s changing roles. We talk about a more men friendly type of feminism and the great opportunities men have to be their best selves as a result of women becoming more open and authentic in their lives. We discuss the difference between the self-discovery and self-healing of Ayahuasca as contrasted by the self-medicating that happens with street drugs. We also explore the issue of shamanic transformations that occur with Ayahuasca, people becoming medicine practitioners and the attitudes surrounding that, the renaissance of this way of life from our shared origins and the emergence of the 21st century medicine women.

Discussion with Mitch Schultz, Director of The Spirit Molecule & Producer of From Shock to Awe

Our discussion is mostly about the transformative process of Ayahuasca and the things we discover about the mind and thoughts and how they impact our reality. We discuss trauma and how it affects people and the ultimate example of war veterans working through their trauma post-Ayahuasca. We touch on subjects like the atmosphere of the mind and its impact on ourselves & others. We talk about the experience of the openness and closeness we feel towards others immediately after plant medicines - which is a natural state that's under the layers we are healing - and how this openness helps us break down social barriers. We explore the importance of seeking our purpose and discovering our inner super hero.

Discussion with Luis Luna of the Wasiwaska Research Center

Luis and I discuss Ayahuasca and our view of reality. Our discussion is at times philosophical and leads into the topic of animistic beliefs both historical and present day representations of this understanding that all things are in some way alive. We use the example of tribes that believe in shape-shifting and extraordinary possibilities of physical transformations and how our early beliefs in life play a role in our reality. Although most of us in the Western world are discouraged from believing in these possibilities, we see representations of this in modern day movies such as Spiderman and Batman and our earliest exposure to these concepts through fairy tales or what we know to be folk tales which reflect a our rich, varied and shared cultural and spiritual history. We talk about how Ayahuasca is playing a role in our relationship with our environment and our evolution.

She talks about the immense physical healing and benefits she received and the things she discovered about how connected we all are to our environment and each other. Her stories reveal that during ceremonies, she had shared visions with others and at times knew what they needed in their process. We talk about the power of our thoughts and intentions, appearing in others' dreams and impacting others telepathically.

Interview with Amar Sahota

Amar shares his story about how he came to the decision to go to Peru with his family to experience Ayahuasca. He talks about the lessons he learned and the experiences had had in each of his ceremonies. We discuss the prevalent themes of self-love, focus on self rather than others, societal programming, our own resistance to growth and the surprising power of love as the ultimate remedy. We talk about using love in dealing with darker elements and the pitfalls of reacting in kind to so-called ‘bad guys’. Amar explains how his relationship with Cannabis and his eating habits have changed for the better post Ayahuasca. Damien Zielinski shares his own views about the intangible mysterious experiences that occur within ceremony and the intrinsic value of this magic that we may never fully comprehend.

Discussion with Kerry Moran

Kerry shares her Ayahuasca experience which began with the revelation of her own childhood sexual trauma. We talk about challenging and difficult Ayahuasca experiences that leave people feeling traumatized and the integration that follows sometimes involving identifying emotions and trauma in the body. Other topics that come up are: attachment to negative energies & ancestral healing. We also talk about using dreams to help us address everyday issues and as an important and valuable integrative tool. We both emphasize the value and need for making time to integrate after an Ayahuasca experience.
