Ayahuasca

If you like hearing people ramble on about their drug induced visions this episode is the one for you. We’re back from an ayahuasca ceremony in Amsterdam and eager to share our newfound wisdom. The line between Seeker and Skeptic is getting increasingly blurred!

We talk about the history, psychology and science of entheogens and compare our recent encounters with Mother Aya to Cat’s previous trips in Peru. We also explore the potential dangers of drinking poison with a bunch of strangers in a foreign country. 

This may be our longest episode yet so prepare to blast off to new levels of consciousness and hear a bit more talk about vomit than you usually prefer.

Exploring esoteric, paranormal and spiritual topics from two completely different perspectives it’s The Seeker and The Skeptic.
