Matt tells the story of how ayahuasca was first discovered. Preparation for an ayahuasca experience, beginning with the diet and what prescription medicines to avoid before the journey.

"Ayahuasca doesn’t hide anything. . . . It can amplify perceptions, but it can also amplify fears or shadow aspects of yourself, the dark you’ve been avoiding. Ayahuasca has an intelligence to it that seeks out your fear and exploits it, and it’s a wonderful teaching tool."
