The Reality of Truth – Plant Medicine Documentary

there's a story in the Bible about God providing mana from heaven food to sustain the Israelites while they're wandering in a wilderness but it never said specifically what it was what was this mana from heaven when I asked that question I had no idea how much my life was about to change the first miracle that Jesus was reported at done was turning water into wine at a wedding the story goes that they ran out of wine and Jesus put a portion of the mana into the water that they boiled as tea he told the waiters to pass it out as wine so I call up Deepak and I said Deepak I gotta talk to you I go I just found some stuff in the Bible that's not making any sense I think I found some psychedelics in there I think there's meditation like what do you think and he's quiet on the phone and I was like Deepak are you there and he's like yeah he said where'd you where'd you find this exactly like send me what you're talking to me about what do you want to do Deepak what should we do about this you wanted to write something up and Deepak was like this is too important like why don't we have a conversation about this could part of the religious experience have to do with plant sacraments in detox tradition the mystery plant soma was used to bring people to communion with God would have been that the hymns of the Rig Veda would actually sell to this blood which had no seeds that had no flowers that was really much service there's a scene in the movie Noah starring Russell Crowe where he has a dream that he's underwater with animals floating past he wakes up knowing that God wants him to do something but he doesn't know what he goes and sits with the wise man in the cave played by Anthony Hopkins who gives him some psychedelic team he drinks it and has a detailed vision of exactly what God wants him to do first of all that's a possibility secondly why does our brain have receptors to these things what because we are part of the same nature you know we're not separate from nature science is based on a subject object split on the separation that is artificial me and the universe when in fact I'm also part of the universe form so the same electrical storms that create thunder and lightning in the sky create synaptic firings in my brain which creates thought we have part of a wholeness and what the religious experience is to experience that wholeness what is enlightenment but being one with the source so whilst they gave people what I wouldn't even call altered state of consciousness I wouldn't call them illumination they have people break out of the everyday loose illumination of separation into the reality of clothes and whether they did it through wine or murder or oral care doesn't even make any sense how could these ancient plants that connect you to God be somehow taken out could these plants be the ancient wisdom that we need for our modern problems what we call today everyday reality which we take for normal okay there's what they're warming this question exactly 50% of the world lives on less than $2 a day the environment is totally screwed up and we say this is normal yeah it's like articulate and it's psychotic because we have created it what do you think it would take to break through that boundary at this point mean here we are in this 21st century this of a buzz will bring everybody down at hurroo and enlighten the puts a little bit but in this rigid Amen okay the Deepak Chopra just tell me to go down to Peru and drink ayahuasca tea one of the most powerful psychedelics known to man filled these by with Deepak had recommended I bumped into our friend Jerry who had generously loaned us his beach house for the interview I was curious what he thought about what Deepak said I didn't realize at the time but Jerry's world was spinning out of control despite having sold his company for almost a hundred million dollars Jerry was abusing drugs drinking a lot of alcohol his family was in shambles and he was basically trying to kill himself slowly more than I realized deep Hox words were really sinking in at this point you might be wondering who this zappy guy is let me tell you a little bit about myself I'd done everything society told me to do go to school get a job make a bunch of money fall in love start a family I was living the American dream I bought beer comm for $80,000 a few months later I sold it for seven million dollars Here I am starring in my own Super Bowl ad life was becoming very surreal even though I had it all my conversation with Deepak made it clear that there were other experiences that I needed to have the value that I place on the experience is more important to me so I always felt like I'd rather have a passport full of stamps than a house of a certain type it occurred to me that like most people I've been searching for happiness outside of myself and I was having the realization that I might never be truly happy unless I went inside my own mind to look for some answers Albert Einstein famously said you can't fix a problem with the same consciousness or thinking that got you into the situation what this meant to me was that if I wanted to solve a problem in my life where we as a society wanted to solve some of the big problems we have like violent eco destruction addiction depression we needed to change our collective consciousness could society use some of these ancient techniques for its modern problems I was inspired by people came before me that seemingly had it all but chose to take the risk of going inside their own mind these people were what I would call Psychonauts sailors of the mind and I saw that these people were going inside their minds and exploring inside their minds as part of what they wound up doing and I thought wow I have to do that I figured before I got too extreme and sat with a shaman I should go out and talk to some of detox friends about our so-called reality only identify with the realm of three dimensions if you only identify with the realm of the body if you only identify with the mortal circumstance of the mortal experience then to that extent you are at the effect of those circumstances save is standing on the conviction standing on the knowledge and the conviction there's something way bigger going on here what we see is only a small portion of the total reality see we have three states waking dreaming and sleep but beyond that there is a state with it's neither of this dream but it is a restful alertness but Dawn's depleted there's nowhere where we escape from being energy so we're always energy what we see as it looks physical material is actually the reflection of light photons of light that hit our energy and bounce back so we're reflecting light but we're reflecting it as a force field a tornado of energy if we can stand within the unreal world an ultimate unreal that appears real that seems limited by the laws of time and space and yet have faith in the realm beyond that literally invokes that realm in to be it seemed like what everyone was saying is reality's just a concept I needed to have the direct experience of going inside could ancient wisdom have included plants and meditation I was excited to learn that a lot of celebrities people like Jerry Seinfeld Martin Scorsese were doing this meditation for a long time and recently people like Oprah Winfrey and dr. oz and Katy Perry had taken up the meditation and it seemed to be making them even more creative I wanted to see if some of this ancient wisdom could help me to tap into my creativity in the 1960s a funny little man named Maharishi Mahesh Yogi came out of the Himalayas to the United States and he wound up teaching his transcendental meditation technique to the Beatles and the rest is history today there are more than seven million people worldwide doing Transcendental Meditation what I like about the TM technique is that there's no dogma attached to it it's really just a simple technique of silently repeating a mantra to yourself which causes you to transcend into your quieted mind to subtler and subtler states of consciousness until a point that you reach a place called universal consciousness endless field of energy that connects all of us we're all knowledge is contained and where everything is manifested from when the Maharishi passed away in 2007 he put John Hagelin in charge as a quantum physicist and a meditator he had successfully used quantum theory to support maharishis model of creative intelligence being at the center of all creation waking consciousness is all about being aware of something this that this concept that person transcending is leaving all that behind to isolate and experience the self itself it's blissful it's not the end of the story ten twenty minutes of that is enough the idea is to come back into activity and increasingly integrate and stabilize the experience of inner reality inner silence along with outer reality masculine life really gets to be interesting mine has two aspects to it it's the brain this which is very concrete you can measure it you can touch it but it's interacting with this field of consciousness and what they come together is our individual self individual personality and that's what most people think they are I'm 5 foot 11 I have this education and this part in society of this amount of money but it's not fundamentally who you are and to know that you need to have the experience of them and that's where meditation experience comes in but found that square root or 1% in some cities here and there and there and it does create positivity in the atmosphere in the tendencies of the people what excited me about this was that if we wanted to change global consciousness we only needed a critical mass of people tapped in when I found in the Bible verses that said be still and know that I'm God the kingdom of heaven is within that's what the meditators are saying it's so obvious is right there the Bible is saying meditate these days religious affiliation is shrinking I needed to go speak to some of the religious leaders and top scholars of our time about whether meditation was once part of religion when it comes to religious leaders there's no one more high profile than Joel Osteen I wanted to ask Joel what he thought the manna from heaven was how always talked it was like bread mushroom or something I'd like it it was mushrooms I sustain them and Wow I did not expect that Bible descriptions from Moses and Jesus sound more like mushrooms than bread in fact every other miracle that Jesus is reported have done was after they drank the mushroom tea st. Mark's Basilica in Venice Italy here's all the disciples is Jesus giant mushrooms behind all very cool yeah so uh that she is over here with this giant mushroom behind of granted Jesus but the giant mushroom then I wanted to talk to some people we've been there done that I probably had as much psychedelics as anyone alive when you fall away for a minute something happens that's actually the beginning and now you have to relearn the world just like you were a baby what I found max ayahuasca very special number one is it's the only mind-altering substance that needs more than one substance and the other track that is interesting is that both of these substances the Mao which is Hamelin or tetrahedra Hama law or the DMT both of these substances are produced in every mammalian nervous system so there are substances that our body produces filemaker foster Gamble's documentary thrive shattered many of the myths that we've been presented by regular society that keep us slaves to our so-called reality so it seems to be a natural inclination to alter our consciousness somewhat and i think one of the reasons for that is when we alter our consciousness we can see our daily consciousness in a new way and it shifts tends to raise and expand our daily consciousness and to me that's the point and if we can use substances whether it's broccoli or ayahuasca or you know c sharp major to give us a glimpse of what's possible for human beings and specifically what's next for me what am i ready for when my consciousness separated from my body it changed the paradigm entirely i realized aha there's something more than this meat vehicle that we have and that one realization set me off writing all night furiously until the dawn and it just really whole philosophy and from that point on I've been on a journey of experiential spirituality finding the answers myself and the plants have been the greatest teachers in that quest many times there's a huge benefit with one experience because it really gets to the core of what's been happening so it's almost like you know ten years of therapy and seven hours Kundalini Yoga icon her MOOC teaches many celebrities how to journey inside using the Kundalini technique she had her own experience with mind-altering energies I do not regret anything I've ever done you know people say I just drugs it was so what I got you here forget it I've met other people that I wish they had because I feel they can't go through the barrier they can't go into that sixth dimension however you want to look at it it's going to be the unknown and you have a choice fear or faith you know space that you're going to come out alright the lessons are going to be valuable and that the medicine will guide you or fear fear that something else is going to happen it's going to be the unknown either way so might as well choose fate there are times in life where through different means and God works in mysterious ways we're shown the mountaintop it's like through grace it's like the hand of God lifts us up and just shows us the mountain I owe a definite debt of gratitude to my experience with various substances I can't endorse it unless you're at a certain air base in a certain environment there's certain true healing because it can learn have it just like Alice didn't they are powerful transformational tools and have to be respected and if you approach them with enough humility respect I can't leave you behind again people are afraid that when they go down there and do these medicines they're going to lose the things that they love the most about themselves and that's just this common fear you know you get someone who loves their career not what if I go down and I tells me I want to be a yoga introduction like it's not going to do that man and if it does you're going to be even happier about the fact that it did there's an opportunity to use psychotropic drugs which will open up that mind and show you my God who you really are I'm fascinated by it I'm interested in it I I believe we'll have real utility somewhere I just too soon for me as a somebody that's trained and you know certain what if do no harm help you know I really really be clear about what you're doing we're not clear yet whatever it takes whether you do the drug or whether you do the meditation exercises or whatever wait I don't really care there's no doubt in my mind that the first indication the first formal use for hallucinogens will be at end of life because it's clear what I'm reading and seeing in the research is that it includes our ability to be connected with something and feel okay about the dying process God knows we need help with that in this country the traditional psychological model of the traditional medical model it usually takes years and years and years of therapy and years of intervention in working with a team of experts to get even just a little progress in someone's life what I've seen in the analogy I give is it's ten to twenty years of psychotherapy often in one to two plant medicine sessions there is a relationship to plant medicine when it is entered through the door of the traditions that brings people more to a sacred recognition of their life their past I think the word drug is really has a lot of negative connotations I can't think of you know maybe it was something some drug actually cure someone it's medicine yeah I haven't heard of people doing up there as I've seen people go before I took the final leap I needed to hear it from a psychedelic badass that person is ROM Dobbs his real name was Richard Alpert born to an affluent New England family he attended Harvard and after graduation began as a researcher at the University it was the 1960s and LSD had just been discovered the government was studying its effect on individuals and enemy combatants while a researcher at Harvard Alpert and professor Timothy Leary started to run experiments on students with psilocybin mushrooms and LSD both of which were legal at the time the results were nothing short of miraculous users were reporting that they were having life-changing experiences including a study that showed that 60% of alcoholics that were given one dose of psilocybin mushrooms in the right setting setting were never alcoholics again how could everybody not know about this discourage with the West he headed to India his guru named him Ram Dass and when he came back to the United States and published his book be here now he was followed around by massive groups of young people if anybody has the right intent could wanted to go to their own spiritual inside the psychedelics are wonderful clever wonderful would you recommend that somebody yes looking yes so seekers should go find a shaman a door and go down and go that was it I was going to gather up a group of friends who wanted to take the risk and go deep into our minds as humanly possible things you just seem to be following in place you know it feels like it's guys it feels like it's meant to be so for me I'm just letting it go you know I just assumed every miracle that is going to happen is about tap and then I should just kind of enjoy it and let it happen I have chosen to work with the Meza which is medicine bundle meditations which worlds counseling and working with ancestral medicines such as watch Ummah or some bedrock which our ancestral medicines that have been used for over 5,000 years in the Andes of Peru by pre-incan cultures who are masters of accessing dimensions of consciousness that are so deep that we often don't access now I feel like it doesn't matter where in the world you go it's like you'll always find you know you're kind and when it comes to spirituality I and I respect anything that or anyone who kind of walks respecting the planet loving nature and opening their heart to you know the universe and love itself as long as that's the main priority behind your religion or your you know ceremonial spiritual beliefs and you know I'm down with you I've got a few intense some are very personal if I'm going to try and bring back to my family and loved ones and try and take some of that knowledge or the glimpse of the other dimensions but are out there which I've been trying to do kind of in artificial ways I mean sometimes with my own art welcome my creativity but in other ways with less natural things and sometimes that's an anesthetic for pain or just your day-to-day life that gets you down but yeah this is something that's been calling me for a while to come and do this but it hasn't been the right moment in my life and so it's all seemed to just fall into place naturally I'm here to have sort of like a rebirth to you know tap into a place that I've I guess I've never gone so I don't know where that is I don't know what that is but hopefully it's a good thing and you know and I'll be able to get through it when you drink the medicine 50 percent of the medicines responsibility is to do all the healing all the cleansing all the awakening of the clearing all the harmonizing that it needs to do but the other 50% of taking it further of taking it deeper in always you're part of my my work in this is to make the most gentle transition possible from being very sleepy to be in fully awake really looking for just tapping into so let's go stuff upstairs so some Padua trip was was gnarly it's really insane because Freddie Puma you know the shaman that introduced this to thee to the catalyst to a spiritual journey you know which was the San Pedro the drink he so attuned that guy and I recall you know being at that at that at the top of the mountain you know at this plateau where we all you know we're just so tired from this massive you know high altitude Trek and we're finally you know getting some air and you're you're looking off at these amazing clouds that are flying right at you and you're at the precipice of this mountaintop and you know you see hundreds of feet below you and I got some enormous sorrow that I kid I was so overwhelmed with and sorrow that consumed me was something that I've been carrying for many years kind of like a but a little rebellious anger like why am I here like you know like dad you know like I didn't knock on your balls you know to come out into this you know universe kind of anger that I think that I've been holding since I was a teenager you know what I mean why is there in the Cubs why suffer why struggle well you can liberate all of that and be of higher service while being gentle on yourself I know you need your ups and downs so you can be human and enjoy life and transition because it's part of the beauty of existence is to be sad and enjoy happiness you need to know both sides but this overwhelming sadness wasn't mine didn't belong to me ever since I was a little kid it didn't belong to me not mine I'm a passenger like Iggy Pop says you know what I mean I'm here to ride this you know and and in a respectful way respect every everything that I come across and you know walk my path with love and you know say goodbye after my journey is done and he came out and he just felt his warm energy behind me and there he was well I was on a rock overlooking the the clouds that are flying towards me us crying you know and he touched my shoulder and he said it's not yours [Applause] if my trip ended today I've had you know 20 years of heavy pain lifted off of my shoulders and I'd be a happy camper without doing the ayahuasca so I'm uh you know I'm feeling I'm feeling really really really really light on my feet happy appreciative and receptive very feminine you know none such a tomboy kind of about time I step into my femininity my full intent coming down here my macro intent was to try to share with everybody in the world for that matter the fact that there's different ways to see reality and that we sort of in this moment of chaos need to take a step back everybody and you just try to see things a little differently the only way that you're supposed to fulfill your role is by being yourself that is the heightened you you attract more love and you attract more energy one of the one of my intents one of the things that I asked for was to face my fears and I realized that no I don't need to face my fears my fears are not going to go away first I have to accept myself with my fears each person have a pattern and that pattern is 50% woven by the person and 50% by the divine ayahuasca is capable of changing that whole pattern from being one person one day the next day you're completely another person I'm open to light in love and just good vibes and anything that isn't on that vibration or frequency I'm just like I don't even see you you don't exist so that's how I'm walking into this ayahuasca trip I'm just in a very receptive place I just you know I know what I'm about I know what I stand for and I know what I resonate with and you know I just I just hope to walk that path and you know whoever's walking along that path you know I hope to meet you and we can join hands and you know district together it happened for me and my ayahuasca experience when I was sitting there and I realized that I had just died as I was looking at death and experiencing death I saw how dynamic it was and how much was going on and I realized that I never needed to fear death again it was totally liberated and as I spent time in this ayahuasca experience I realized that I was sitting in a place where I could ask any question I could go into the future I could go into the past whatever I wanted to know I'm gonna ask a big question so I decided to ask why do bad things happen and immediately upon asking that I was whisked out into the edge of space back to where when your kid you go yeah but what's past space when people go oh more space and what's past that more space I was out there on that edge looking at everything in the universe basically contained like God would look at and as I'm looking at it spirit said to me you see that totally bound it's perfect and I looked at I was a WoW that's true it's totally balanced perfect if something happens over here it'll just be made up over here and as soon as I had that realization I'll suck right back in I was sitting in the room again and as I was coming out I just started a laugh I was laughing and I realized that I had just gotten the entire human cosmic joke here we are with God the man with the white beard and Buddha and homilist Jesus all these men and I was with God and it was a one that expected me every day since my ayahuasca experience well for me ingesting the medicine was a destruction of everything I've ever known everything I've ever believed in everything I ever thought was true I tried to reason it for a while two days after try to reason the idea that it's a hallucinogenic drug Michelle it just you know it takes things from your subconscious and protects them you know there's absolutely no way that there's any truth in what you envision that it's just a trip you know you read tons of books on alchemy you know you have tons of you know information about symbolism and religion deep embedded into your brain since you're a little kid but I know my heart of hearts is not true and that everything that I have ever known could quite probably be bullshit ha ha ha ha and it makes me happy I felt a peace and calm but I've never experienced in my life I'm overwhelming feeling that I could relax sort of constantly machete my way through life with my urban Arbor on it was stripped everything away and put me in contact with something rulers a benevolent higher power as really where I can really describe it at such a hard time in the middle of it No like a surgeon I was just opened up I was feeling pain like I grew up and hey see but she was lovely once I got through that hard part or the part that I needed to get out it was just definitely the best life-changing experience that I've ever been through when people access these medicines they need to access with full love with full willpower otherwise they need to find other ways people will transcend anyway now is the time and these medicines are major assistance major helpers major masters you know assisting this process of transition for humanity from one level of consciousness to a higher level of consciousness I've lost a lot of anger a lot of hatred and a lot of you know what if you're an asshole be an asshole it's your fate you know what I mean like I'm easy now but I'm not angry anymore and all the mean people in the world you know because I accept that they're part of it and it's all good you know what I mean it's not my walk well you know do your thing and I respect your path but don't come near me with your evil energy cuz I'll knock you the fuck out [Laughter] it all comes down to intent for me if your intent is right it's going to work it's going to be better than you thought and you're going to have a lot less chaos it seemed to me that nature recognizes that people are highly stressed and that people need healing medicines for the problems of addiction and depression I kept looking for ways to transcend on a daily basis and I was introduced to Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and his breathing technique called Sudarshan Kriya the technique is being done by millions of people including prisoners and inner-city youth have been trained by Sri Sri to use the technique to overcome their physical environment and give themselves internal strength Sri SRI's logic goes that when we're born we draw in our first breath and when we die we let out our final breath but most people think nothing of it in between when in fact breathing may be our most valuable capability this is an important tool for every emotion there is a particular rhythm in the breath and if we attend to the breath by manipulating your own brand you can slip into the altered state of consciousness act will I learn the Kriya breathing which blew my mind the fact that I was able to put myself into a psychedelic state with just my breath lightning bolt shooting out of my hands and feet time Stood Still I continue to get together with my friends to talk about our experience and how we were integrating our psyche not training into our lives there's a whole group of scientists very few but enough was saying maybe brain does not produce consciousness maybe brain filters conscious you say more transmitters good transmitters and what your transmitters off is that infinite potential that you spoke of that field of possibilities and so when you start to break down the boundaries then all that's left is the infinite so the boundaries are like your prejudices saying that you know that you've accumulated throughout life that you've either repeal or attracted yeah every boundary is a conceptual laundry encounter this is an earth rover this gives me an opportunity to come to this planet step into this suit have these life experiences be creative and and and and marvel at this that this planet that that we come to and they're so funny because a I started this whole thing not spiritual being once I saw the nature of the cell membrane the self receptors i said oh my god instantaneously i had to recognize if you by the science and it's not it is there is there not there's a spirit it really helped me to bring my scientific mind and my kind of spiritual experience in together really they're not different at all we're just discovering through all these pathways how after I started to really journey with the plants was when things sort of changed when that was a boyfriend of mine I was like 24 at the time lately not an idiot and he said you need you you you are very passionate you have nothing to back up how you feel about the world you got you don't read you don't have you know you read one book and you can get twenty years worth of research in one block and you kind of like open up my mind to do research and to fill my mind now when I see the world I do a psychedelic I think metaphorically I think I'm so many different layers you know and of course I enjoy the moment to like a J sensations like any of them you know I love to feel good and have fun and interact with people but you know information is so beautiful and if we could just tap into the reservoirs of fountains of the people before us you know you never know where to take you when I lost Paul I was like I went through about a year of just being like in hair like what could I do physically to just get my mind off of existentialism get my mind off of how transient life is and how we just come here and can disappear at any moment how I get my mind off that side urges right ah summer crazy not just a circle like I did everything I could possibly do to hide from myself and I'll tell you that my ayahuasca trip made me sad that she left me here it wasn't a sadness that he's gone it was more like a jealousy that he there first [Laughter] yeah I think it was affirmed to me in the ayahuasca experience and some other trips I've had in my life where what was happening is when I took the medicine or it meditated and it went inside that they were basically I was taking filters off is what was happening so all this bullshit reticular activation system it's like doors of perception we pop it yeah he felt like that filtration mechanism that we create by the age of seven has just lifted off you know how like you received so much information in your in your visual cortex but your brain only accepts a certain amount so that you're not overwhelmed that's your reticule activation system deciding according to your wants likes and end and fight-or-flight deciding what information you're going to take it each time I got together with my fellow Psychonauts we felt stronger and stronger about the need to get the information out so we could help others to access some of these ancient techniques that has been so profound in our lives we should just you know this new reality society should set up the place in like Costa Rica like a home where people know the same way put them all around the world in a consciousness of it is like come in oops I mean all right everything's rolling along things are falling into place and you know like everything in life you you want validation you want to know that it's having some kind of an effect beyond just hey I'm having a good time I'm learning a lot I'm having all these cool experiences but you know am I really is something really happening and I was looking for some kind of sign that you know it was making a difference because I couldn't see what the difference was and other than my own friends and people around me so I was kind of think God can be a sign here that you know this is is making a difference that there's something to it and then the phone call came from Jerry well I hadn't seen since we shot with Deepak in his apartment years earlier unbeknownst to me Jerry had taken deep box advice as well and he went down to Costa Rica to do a plant medicine called I boga that comes from an African root it's the strongest psychedelic known to man and Gerry was taking it to see if he could break his addiction the full-moon came to Gerry and asked him if he wanted to see why he was so messed up now because of my life I had like addiction issues tons of women issues ego issues out the Gazoo smoking drinking and you name it I was a fan right so I said what's what's wrong with and so what happened then is that my body went to a house that I hadn't seen in 48 years it was my grandma my grandfather's house and you can Scranton Pennsylvania and at the front of the house like three-year-old me has gone like this to me he's like waving me in and I'm looking at the floor and there was a kid I knocked over cranberry juice of grape juice and it hit the wall and that stain was on the wall this is how perfect detail and then Mexican el the kid opened the door and like went like this can you like go look at it and my grandfather was sexually molesting me and I was 3 the moon told Jerry to go see his dead grandfather and have him explain why he'd done it and give him an apology Jerry went to see his grandfather who denied it ever happened and sent him away she told him to get his father to help him to get an apology from his grandfather and he said that he was sorry and I told him I forgave him and even though he wouldn't do anything for me and then the guy the shaman goes hey go to the moon so I went to the moon back to the moon and I said mrs. mrs. moon what can you do for me and she said open your chest and I went like this and my heart was in there and the moon took I heart out and washed it and I said what the sounds saying what is she doing I said she's washing it like this like she has hands right crazy but truth she was washing it he said I said what should I do with it now to the shaman he said have her put it in your left hand I said mrs. moon would you put it in my left hand and she put it in my left hand he goes I said what do you want me to deal with it he goes put it in your chest and I went to put in my chest Nick got here and it was black again so it only stayed pink for like I don't know five seconds and I said I'm not putting this thing in me because it's shit that's terrible and he said ask her for a new one so I said mrs. moon could I please have a new heart you know and she said yeah and then she gave me this new heart and then I put it I said what do you want me to do with it's to put it in your left hand put it in your chest and then the next day I was a different guy he hasn't touched drugs since and he's able to have a drink socially without needing to get drunk he's reunited with his family and for the first time he's in a real relationship the first time I was invited to do plant medicine I thought the person was crazy I was like you're going to take a drug to get spiritual I don't think so and I wanted nothing to do with it and it freaked me out you know my mom's a meth addict and I was a meditator and finally this woman who's like just a love in my life invites me to go and I couldn't say no so I went and that night she told me set some intentions of what you want to see and I said okay I want to see why I keep attracting the same psycho guy over and over and over with a different face sucking the light out of me and the second thing that I wanted to see was what was I here to do and so that night was just one of the most amazing nights of my life I was shown exactly who I am what I'm here to do and exactly why I kept attracting that same psycho guy over and over and over again it's just amazing because Jerry and I wake up every day and we're just like wow is this our life like we're just feel so blessed to be in love with our best friend and to be doing what we love immediately when I came back and my kids saw me they knew I was a different guy and they knew something changed as soon as he walked through the door I can like visibly see a difference flown when I was actually talking with him I was like shocked you know I was like well I gotta give this thing a whirl if I could they could turn him around 180 people look at it do to me the first time I saw Gerard after he did plant medicine he didn't even have to speak or say one word to me I could tell as I walked up to him about 15 feet away I knew he was a changed person the chances of someone coming out of that severe of a lifestyle case is very rare I didn't want to drink anymore that's melfin two packs of cigarettes a day went from that to nothing immediately I can't even think about doing drugs like I can't even have the thought to go do some drugs he's like zappy not only did I take plant medicine and break my addiction in one session but I've actually opened up a Center for people to come and expand their consciousness heal themselves break addiction and it exists I was like oh my god it manifested from that conversation with Deepak that day where he said stir it up in the pot and drink it the moon told me and then this sounds so ridiculously crazy but told me to go buy a center and to make it a plant-based center told me what building to buy told me what to pay for it told me how to treat my girlfriend told me how to treat my children I told me that that everything would be okay his place is called rythme a– and where is it set up a place in like Osteria gap this just a miracle I needed this place had manifested out of that single conversation and the desire to help people break the wire the first ever clinic where people can go to expand their consciousness and heal themselves while you're at rythme a– you can receive counseling and spiritual development including a program developed specifically for rib mia by Reverend Michael Beckwith called the answer is you it's a consciousness expanding program that allows people to one take 100% responsibility for their own life come out of the shame and blame game blaming others too it moves you through a period of forgiving yourself and forgiving all others and you can be clean inside three you–if you begin to embrace the vibration of intentionality having an intention or direction of how you want your life to be you have to choose this if we don't choose it then the undertow of the human society is choosing for you going to a place like you know what's being created at rythme –is a place where you can literally just come back to your life's rhythm you know the miracle that you're going to get is that you're going to get the real truth and the truth is that that we are all all of us connected from the same thing and that love is the thing that holds us all together and when you get to that truth that's that's the whole thing that you've been running from your whole life is that one truth and then we calm you you come to place like this and you get to see that that's the truth then there's the miracle and then you can walk away and go you know it you know I lost everything this weekend or this week but I gained in my life and what more could ask for a and a vacation everything I've gone through has truly been worth it because even before this movie is finished it's already changed the world because this place exists every act that comes from purpose is supported by nature and has the potential to change things in ways you could have never dreamed them how do i channel all of this connection into being an efficient human being in society into giving back because for me love is everything if you have to almost have a way to reenter the ayahuasca experience almost on a daily basis please have been first and then ask the bit your medication is for something that would deliver you back there if only for a moment all of us had life-changing experiences so the question is how could these incredible plant energies be illegal today to consume or even a study it turns out that the answer to that question may be even more sinister than the reason they've been taken out of religion money the pharmaceutical companies are only interested in selling their patented petroleum-based medications that people need to take for the rest of their lives these drugs do not cure but only mask the symptoms and have significant negative side effects Here I am living my entire life sustained by plants I'm eating vegetarian and my day job is bringing out a plant-based formula to help people with addiction I owe everything to these ancient tools plant medicine meditation weaving these are some of the tools that were once part of the religious tradition it's time to bring them back we started the true reality society to create a peace army to counteract mass violence in the world and to bring together people who believe in the importance of going inside their minds with the close battle to the clearance that will be under pull every time please I'm back in your Lobby we've just begun please baby each teacher it's me Oh Changez I'm gonna win too [Applause] mommy mama Lakshmi Oh stream my Lakshmi Oh maha Lakshmi namaha three my Lakshmi gain oh ma Lakshmi genome stream mama Lakshmi Oh strain my Lakshmi Oh Oh [Laughter] my ma-ma-ma-ma-ma Lakshmi Lakshmi [Applause] Lakshmi Lakshmi namaha breathe in slowly and and breathe out slowly on the in-breath perhaps having the thought peace and on the out-breath the thought joy peace on the in-breath and joy on the out-breath and bring your awareness into your heart now and remember a great experience of love remember a great experience of compassion a great experience of joy a great experience of equanimity the peace that passes understanding and now bring your awareness back into your whole body and allow the boundaries of your body to slowly dissolve and merge with your surroundings recognize that every boundary is conceptual there's no boundary there are no national boundaries there are no tribal boundaries no I'd snake boundaries no racial boundaries no religious boundaries they're all imagination and they have limited our potential we are the Stars and we are the sky and we are the moon and we are the galaxies we are the cosmic horizon we are the Big Bang we are the laws of nature we are Planck scale space-time geometry where everything dissolves into all possibilities we're platonic values like truth goodness beauty harmony evolution are embedded as the essential raw material of the universe where there is mathematical truth but also musical truth whether is the poetry of the universe and the dance of the universe and we are that dance the Sufi poet Rumi says look at these words spinning out of nothingness this is within your power we come spinning out of nothingness scattering stars like dust how to beyond all ideas of right doing and wrong doing there's a field I'll meet you there so remember the field that you went to it was beyond right doing and wrong doing it was the field from where we come and which we long for electro Berto finishes Peruvian shamanic song


  1. You make it seem as though without faith herbs will not work. Not so, they work based upon their own make-up… Most modern day medicine,is comprised of plants. Without the phyco… This falicy of … out there thinking …is exactly the lie that has caused people to believe that modern man's thinking is God… Everything else is nonsense…. Ask yourself this… With all of the so called progress in medicine… Why are people dying at a younger age within each generation??? Science as today, not only doesn't cure… It causes… CDC is a joke… They in fact… Create medical problems… $$$$

  2. Does anyone want to save someones life for real? If ur in the UK and can send me sm shrooms or San pedro I wld be forever grateful, willing to pay. Peace

  3. Why did they start out talking about San Pedro, then switch in mid-film to Ayahuasca? Were there two separate ceremonies? One with San Pedro and one with Ayahuasca?

  4. the area where they were supposedly lost for 40yrs was only 2square miles, no wonder they thought they thought they were lost for so long and couldn't get out of a 2mile radius. They were all high on "manna" magic mushrooms. They were probably on there for a week at most.

  5. I loved this film and relate to the deeper meaning they are trying to explain here. Few years back, I attended one Art of Living workshop by Shri Shri Ravi Shankar, during one session we practice "Sudarshan kria" in a group as shown in this film. My first experience was amazing, after doing few rounds of breathing i slipped into a state that was magical. A state similar to getting high/stoned, but only naturally with out any external stimulus. Presently when ever i am in a clean good energy environment, i try and consciously practice these breathing techniques. If you do it right, you would feel an infinite flow of energy thru every part of your body. I feel this energy flow has a charging and healing effect on the body. And it's free, just needs a conscious thought.

  6. Government control over the people has removed natural products and people need to say enough is enough! It's our bodies, it's our life, it's our choice! How can we change the lies and control to truth and bring this to the USA?!!! I want to do a plant journey, but I need it affordable! Because not all of us have the funds to do it, yet it belongs to every person on our Earth!!!!

  7. In "The Sacred Mushroom and the Cross", John Marco Allegro pronounced that Jesus was an Amanita Muscaria mushroom.  This ACCORDING TO THE KUMRAN DEAD SEA SCROLLS HE WAS HIRED TO TRANSLATE.

  8. What a bunch of wankers . Wealthy people whose money hasn’t solved their problems looking to find answers in some bullshit spiritual awakening . Poor people take hallucinogens and get arrested . These nobs take em then go on talk shows to share their revelations . It’s just another drug , why don’t they get it ?

  9. Idiots you are the very people the scriptures say have no understandingof the word I know people who have never taken anything and lots of shit you dope heads claim this shit does they have had happen to them my relative touched me in a dream after speaking to me and I felt high for about 15 20 minutes after waking up the most high comes to his people without any of this shit morons the children of the most high are absolutely not aloud to to do any of the shit you dumb ass dmt mushroom head ass dumbys are trying to put in the word a certain tribe wasn't even able to have wine or grapes or vinegar it was clean food and a clear mind is how GOD deals with his children the dmt he placed in your brain is all the lost sheep needs.




  13. Look it's only been in the last say a hundred and twenty years that all of this demonization of various plants and and and fungus and whatnot have been brainwashed into us at all this is evil this is bad this is this wrong it's it legal no it's not they were all put here by like the Creator God whatever you want to call him to Jova Yahweh Allah it doesn't matter God created everything that you see around you and God did not create anything evil.

  14. When I heard " I asked the moon to give me another heart." I sobbed just like he did, at the very moment he did. I felt him… I was him for that split second.
    I am ready.. I've been ready. I have nothing material left at this time in my life. My benefits taken from me harshly. I'm fighting to get them back but with little and no help. I'm living on the charity of my friend. 8 momths… disabled. Guardian to a 9 yr old grandson. Knowing the responsibility of can't give up. I want to be in the moments described here. I access them from time to time but alone is daunting. I envy those who have a army of friends that with their love sustain "their moments". How can others with nothing to offer but their hearts reach Rhythmia? I with my heart send you blessings, love and light. All I ask is, please send me your light laden love back to me through the universe. I could use your support in that manner. Next week I go to their MD so that "the corporate" people decide to return to me my benefits, that give me back monies taken from me leaving me destitute. I want to better navigate with my grandson in this world. Unfortunately, I could forever have the right mindset but without the means, it next to impossible. So please, when the sun sets in the west just send me your love light and blessings. I'll be there reaching out attempting to manifest it as well. Thank you for reading this and also for good intentions in advance.

  15. manna its a thing at least make some research . check here . This spoiled people without culture having a good time and pretending they are doing something superior and understanding more than other people just looks like spoiled teenagers trying drugs for the first time.

  16. Buzzy hope you didn't hang to long in the Obama and Oprah land too long, no receptors in a godly man's for them Depok was deceived by their charm, God's energy and the devils energy are both at war and the battle will soon begin

  17. I was an Atheist drug user. I had some spiritual experiences under mescaline cactus. But one day in 1978 I took some psychedelic mushrooms. I was given the message that Christianity was the truth. And that the worst thing that could happen was to not accept Christianity. It literally scared the hell out of me.

  18. Jesus didn't add manna to the water to turn the water into wine. Facepalm. He doesn't need to use something he created to create something new.

  19. As an herbalist, I take issue with this video in giving the viewer the misguided idea that consciousness altering is the only thing that plant medicine is all about. There are many more important uses of herbs that could be called, in a fuller and truer sense, medicine. And connecting herbalism, or the medicinal use of plants, exclusively with the hippie and psychedelic subculture gives a seriously warped impression to many viewers that there is nothing more to herbal medicine than this, which is a negative impression in the minds of many viewers, of people just looking for an excuse to get high, and somehow feeling better about it if the substance is natural. Even in terms of genuine spirituality, it is somewhat of a trap to think that one's spiritual enlightenment or happiness is dependent on a substance.
