This is great. They’ve put into words most of what I felt too. No bullshit in here. The feeling of oneness, the presence of the intelligence of the plant inside, the divine feminine mother – Gaya, the loving joy… I’ve learned a lot from Her, as Gabor Mate said, and I long to hear the icaros again…
“Ayahuasca was fine seeing what people treated each other as long as they killed each other. But when they started killing plants, Ayahuasca said “This is not correct!” and the peculiarity of the teacher plants, and we know that there are more than one, but Ayahuasca is the one we know best, tobacco is another. But these are the plants who were given the job of dealing with us. And I bet that they didn’t ask for it. I have this imagining of the congress of the plants that said “Somebody has to talk to humans. Who’s gonna do it?” “I’m not gonna do it.”, “I’m not gonna do it”, “Who’s gonna do it?”, “I don’t wanna touch them.” “
“We’re not doing this for fun…”
I love this guy ! (Actually both, but now the emphasis is on the interviewee… 🙂 )
This interview was recommended to me by Meda a few months ago and now was the perfect moment to watch it.
He calls himself a “people whisperer”, practices Inner Engineering by Sadhguru, had had and organizes retreats with Ayahuasca, had a tremulous life, fought personal addictions and is a leading expert in depression and addictions.
Guys, meet Gabor Maté!

Atat descrierile samanilor San Pedro, cat si cele ale ayahuasceros despre modurile lor de lucru cu leacurile-plante si aliatii care le sunt parteneri spirituali si de vindecare ne arata o perspectiva foarte blanda, lirica si plina de suflet asupra lumii. Din aceste marturii incepe sa se nasca o imagine foarte diferita de imaginile pe care le vedem in ziare si in documentarele de televiziune, care ne fac sa credem ca halucinogenele de orice fel sunt rele si trebuie interzise.

Fie ca dieta e pentru a vindeca trupul, spiritul sau este parte a unei ucenicii, ceea ce o face sa functioneze este buna intentie catre ea, precum si intentia de a face legatura cu spiritul plantei. Cand spiritul il accepta pe cel care tine dieta, iar el are vointa, spiritul ii va darui energie. Calea spre cunoastere se deschide, iar vindecarea poate avea loc Continue reading Shaman – Spiritul plantelor II
Mainstream religion is a defense mechanism against religious experience. Most religion is Spirit co-opted and made safe by ego for ego. No real sacrifice or transformation is required. Continue reading Sacred Vine of Spirits
