About Ayahuasca Talks
Why do we want to hear plant medicine stories? For the same reason that everyone wanted to hear about the experiences of the first astronauts who explored the cosmos. We’re exploring our consciousness and this is something that touches everyone. Did everyone who followed the stories of astronauts plan to venture out into space? Not necessarily but people were moved by these stories that sparked their imaginations. Plant medicine stories do this and so much more. Many of us learn a great deal about ourselves from these unique experiences and those who listen to these stories often learn about themselves too. These stories have the capacity to open us up and to move us deeply. Are we discussing drugs? When we hear the word ‘drugs’ most of us think of something harmful and addictive. When I hear the word ‘drugs’ I think of the pharmaceuticals that I was dependent upon for years and I remember how hard it was for me to get them out of my life. I think of how plant medicines inspired me to do just that and helped so many others to improve their lives in profound ways. On Ayahuasca Talks, we're not telling stories about drugs – these are stories about us – about humanity. These stories are about accessing a higher form of consciousness that gives us perspective, inspires wonder and helps many of us improve our relationships with ourselves and others and to address issues such as depression, addiction, PTSD & anxiety by helping us to heal the emotional wounds underlying these issues that affect so many of us today.
Ayahuasca Talks is hosted by Rebecca Hayden who has written about her own experiences with Ayahuasca here: www.rebeccahayden.com
Rebecca continues to learn from these experiences and shares these insights on the podcast, in her writing and through private hypnosis sessions that help people continue the work that they begin with Ayahuasca and other plant medicines. Visit her website to learn more.
