Vector: Google Alerts (Ayahuasca)

Who: John David Balla

Snippet:
As the jungle leg of the journey neared, ayahuasca became a constant topic among my colleagues. Soon I would have the opportunity to drink the "vine of the dead" with three ayahuasqeros (jungle shaman) in yet another sacred nighttime ceremony. But unlike the spiritual work I had done thus far, which invoked powerful symbolism through ritual, ayahuasca was a serious psychotropic potion that, among other things, purports to cure many ailments, impart knowledge and visions, even allow people to experience death or turn into jungle animals (shape shifting). Some also claim to travel through time and space by merely having the desire to do so while under the supernatural influence of ayahuasca. Others claim the magical elixir to be a thousand times more potent than LSD, but of course, simply impossible. Did I mention that you have to puke?Yes, but the jungle shamans prefer to use the more dignified term, "purge."
