The Transformative Power of Ayahuasca Ceremony

69 | Jerónimo M.M. is an Ayahuasca community activist and independent researcher. He has produced and written two documentaries about Ayahuasca: the first about the Brazilian Ayahuasca churches, the second about the use of Ayahuasca in the treatment of drug addiction. In the last 20 years he has travelled extensively through South America, researching a broad range of Ayahuasca practices, and has lectured internationally on Ayahuasca tourism and the appropriation of indigenous knowledge. He works as Social Innovation Coordinator for the ICEERS Foundation, and is a founding member of the Plantaforma (Platform for the Defense of Ayahuasca in Spain). In the last 5 years he has devoted most of his energy to figuring out how ceremonial plant practices can be integrated outside of their cultures of origin. He curates a list of Ayahuasca news, a Facebook account, and a blog. Listen to his conversation with TNM's Zoran Todorovic about the transformative power of the Ayahuasca ceremony today.
