Ayahuasca and the realm of spirits

visions art psychedelic
We came across a very interesting article on the use and effects of ayahuasca, the sacred brew that’s prepared by shamans in the Amazon, and served in centers of the Santo Daime religion throughout the world. Ayahuasca can also be made at home, for example by preparing one of the Spirit Elixer packs. 

An excerpt from the article, about the active component DMT (dimethyl-tryptamine):

DMT’s consciousness-altering experience has been sampled by William Burroughs, Allen Ginsburg, Terence McKenna and Timothy Leary. They all attest to DMT’s potent launching of the subject into a sometimes frightening plane of reality. But they all agree it is a powerful psychoactive experience. The “trip” itself seems (in a distillation of several accounts) to break down into specific stages
