“Medicine” An Ayahuasca Experience

In this video Skull Babylon covers a man, TJ Dawe, talking about his experience with Ayahuasca.

First he explains that Ayahuasca is a plant based drink or brew that has been used in spiritual and ritualistic ceremonies for years. It comes from the Amazon and is considered somewhat radical.

Babylon explains:

“The more that we can understand Ayahuasca, and the more that we can integrate our consciousness with it, it’s going to help us expand and understand the parts of the universe that have been mysteries until now.”

“Medicine” is a one-man show that TJ Dawe wrote and performs about Ayahuasca. He talks about how the experience is different for everyone and it is different every time.

See excerpts of the the show in the video below:

In the video Skull Babylon and TJ Dawe explain the process of taking the plant extract from the shaman.

TJ Dawe did it twice and said it was very intense. His show goes through the first time he tried it and the misery he went through. He shares that others shared their experiences with the group after and he felt left out as his experience the first time was not as profound.

“The first experience was powerful and miserable–I dry heaved for most of the night and felt emotionally alienated.”

He says he would hope that someone wants to do it for the right reasons and recommends that they check out Jungle Prescription, a documentary where Dr. Gabor Maté studies what happens in the brain while taking Ayahuasca.

He hopes the people who take ayahuasca want to learn something about themselves or because they want to find out why they behave the way they do.

If done correctly, then ayahuasca can be very therapeutic.

“I would like more people to know that ayahuasca exists…Ayahuasca shows you what you need to see.”
