Discussion with John Folak Aka ‘The Traveling Nobody’

Our discussion centres around things falling apart so that they can be recreated in a better way – the concept of rebirth playing out in our lives and in the integrative process. Instead of looking at depression as an illness, we explore the idea of seeing depression and other difficult states as an indicator or signal telling us that change is needed and underway. Depression is often a natural reaction to unhealthy experiences and events coming to a head. We talk about the integration process as becoming who we are and living authentically. We discuss practical situations we have encountered in our work life and how we applied what we learned with medicines to these experiences both in work interviews, in the workspace and ultimately choosing careers that reflect who we are and lend themselves to living an authentic life. We talk about the importance of allowing that inner voice and knowing to drive our experience rather than outside influences which have led us in directions that don’t always serve us well.

We discuss how we learn lessons along the way and become comfortable with ‘making mistakes’. We relate stories that illustrate how humour can assist us through these challenging learning experiences – a form of ‘educational entertainment’. We talk about the value of open curiosity and how everything that happens in life is a response to our intentions and where we’re at. Ultimately, being in a state of love is what will help us to manifest more positive experiences in our lives.

Discussion with Jonathan Dickinson of Ceiba Ibogaine

Jonathan and Rebecca discuss different approaches to psychedelics: clinical, traditional and the many variations of these practices. Jonathan voices concerns about clinical set and setting and the implications of this with respect to the clinical approach to psychedelics and plant medicines. We talk about the idea of having a relationship with the medicines and how this concept may not be adopted by everyone. We agree that we’re all just finding our way with these phenomenal medicines and that one size does not fit all. We talk about how the DSM identifies mental conditions/illness decided based on a collection of symptoms, how this is now being questioned and how psychedelic medicines open us up to seeing these states and conditions differently and most importantly, what contributes to these unhealthy states. We talk about how psychedelics are often the beginning of us understanding ourselves better and how our life experiences and the way we live in the world has brought us to these unhealthy states of being. Instead of a miracle cure, although these experiences are truly magical, miraculous and transformative in many ways, they are often the beginning of a transformation that takes work that can last the rest of one’s life. We discuss the tremendous value of psychedelic experiences that not only offer individually transformative opportunities but also offer us different perspectives & changes in our worldview that may change the way that we approach our lives which is transforming our collective way of being for the better.

Discussion with Tanya Lynn of Sistership Circle

In honour of International Women's Day, Tanya and Rebecca discuss the rise of the divine feminine as a healing and growing experience for both men and women as we all have both qualities and have favoured the masculine over the feminine to our own detriment. We discuss stepping into our power and approaching this time of social discord as an opportunity for us to learn and grow into a place where we can accept if not embrace everyone’s unique points of view as the medicines teach us to appreciate our uniqueness. We talk about how children embody such wonderful divine masculine and divine feminine qualities and represent an opportunity to cultivate a greater balance of these qualities within our society.

Discussion with Sami Scebba

Sami and I talk about learning through our experiences post Ayahuasca and situations that arise at times (such as covid) to give us the opportunity to create better states of being. We talk about constructs and the flexible nature of reality. Sami talks about connecting with a spiritual presence. He shares a story about seeing a future, very powerful version of himself in a hypnosis journey – the healer within and the fact that becoming that person is the journey he is on. We discuss the responsive nature of these experiences and of reality itself. Themes: acceptance - letting go – surrender – resistance – personal power – value – listening - patience – changing limiting beliefs.

Discussion with Greg Lake of entheoconnect.com

Greg shares how before plant medicines, he struggled with addictions then discovered psilocybin and through this, he began to heal and journey with other medicines including Ayahuasca. He talks about how Bufo and Ayahuasca inspired him to create an online platform called entheoconnect.com for all entheogen explorers to connect and interact safely in an atmosphere that reflects the spirit of the medicines. We talked about the challenges in general after medicine experiences coming into the social fray and how much more difficult it is these days. We talk about responding to the social divisions, conflict and chaos by applying the lessons we learn through medicines and how this is an opportunity for us to start to interact with one another in healthier ways despite our differences. We talk about the wisdom of focusing on and remembering the many more things we have in common – our common goals of health, peace, love, happiness and freedom. Although we might have different ideas as to how to achieve/maintain these states, we look forward to exploring ways to create new opportunities together. We talk about the importance of being and remaining open. It's not only the underlying common gift that Ayahuasca offers us but it may also be the key to achieving all of our common goals even though we may do it in different ways. Greg welcomes assistance with this new online social platform project, which he and his partner plan to launch in March of this year. On this platform, there will be opportunities to participate in scientific studies surrounding medicines/psychedelics and there will be a variety of integration coaches, tools and modalities to explore.

Discussion with Tim Sae Koo of 1Heart Accelerator

Tim and I take stock of this year and its challenges and how we can use many of the things we've learned through Ayahuasca to meet these challenges. We discuss the inspiring possibilities that exist in this time of transition or incubation. We talk about how we're sharing a global experience and how some of the events we're seeing in the world reflect issues we need to work on personally and how we can grow through it. We bring the concept of creating our own reality into the discussion to help us gain perspective and to help us consider how we can use this time to reinvent ourselves in a more authentic, loving and empowering way. Tim brings his years of entrepreneurial experience into the discussion and shares his vision of how we can approach business in a way that serves us all. We talk about regarding this global situation as a massive wake up opportunity. We also discuss the divisions we're seeing as an opportunity for us to work on accepting and respecting everyone's unique reality as well as reminding ourselves of the important underlying universal commonalities and the deep reality of love underlying all of it.

Discussion with Rachael Phillips of AyahuascaMicrodosing.com

Rachael shares how she found Ayahuasca after a shocking discovery and break up of her marriage followed by self-abusive behaviour. Eventually Rachael began to trust her own intuition and decided to participate in Ayahuasca ceremonies during which she felt divine unconditional love. She continued to pursue ceremonies in Peru and Ayahuasca ultimately called her to offer the Ayahuasca vine as a microdosing option. Rachael discusses her integrative journey with this supportive microdosing practice. We discuss the integrative concepts of surrender, being aware of resistance, coming to terms with the love underlying a lot of relationships that may be difficult on the surface and the importance of being aware of victim consciousness. We also talk about the power of intentions and using tools such as microdosing to continue that relationship with Ayahuasca which supports us in our daily lives.

Discussion with Jeremiah Josey of the Thorium Network

Jeremiah shares about his experience with a dark entity who took over his body during ceremony and taught him about how he created the groundwork for allowing darker energies in. Part of the education of this allowing of darker energies to take over involved passively watching darker or violent movies. We discuss this and our role in allowing darker energies into our experience and how to change that. We talk about the empowering nature of moving from passive involvement with these elements to conscious awareness and decisions based on this awareness. I share what Ayahuasca taught me about the relationship we have with darkness ('the beast within'), how it reveals itself and the importance of responding with love. We talk about the power of love and the possibilities that exist on this planet as a result of this powerful resource.

Discussion with Catherine Adunni Mother Jaguar

Catherine shares a powerful story of how she discovered her higher self - the divine within – after she attempted suicide. Later, she discovering Ayahuasca and we discuss the kinds of lessons she learned about the importance of focusing within and self love as a means of healing sexual trauma, anger and improving her life experience. We discuss the how powerful our words and thoughts are, how our inner experience reflects outwards and how innerwork can change this outer experience for the better.

Discussion with Nathaniel Perl of Curious Chimps Podcast

Rebecca Hayden and Nathaniel Perl discuss fear and anger among other topics related to integrating Ayahuasca experiences. We discuss our religious introduction to spirituality and the important questions we had at a young age which were never addressed by our religious community but were ultimately addressed by Ayahuasca. We talk about the openness and innocence of children and how important that is and how we are trying to return to that state with the help of Ayahuasca. Nathaniel shares two key experiences that provide insights on the diversity and variety of spiritual paths as well as the temptation of going into fear versus taking a different path into the unknown that will lead to where we really want to go. The alien discussion comes up again along with more insights around emotions and entities that seem to not be emotional. We also talk about our attachments to pain and unhealthy emotions.
