Can you explain this process to me? Sure. You brew it in a big pot over a fire for up to seven days. There's a very extensive process and the constant heat allows those components in those plants to be extracted into the liquid. You need to be watching the fire and praying over the medicine all the time and always adding more water.Does the tea taste good? It does not taste good. It's very bitter. It's made from a vine, so it tastes like tree bark—it's not very tasty. It's a combination of eating dirt and bitter. But it's generally about two ounces, so you can ingest it really quickly.It's not a recreational drug. It's not an enjoyable experience to go into the shadows of our consciousness and find our pains and wounds and traumas and unresolved traumas. She will always give you what you need. It will really challenge you.What do you experience visually after drinking the brew? Visions begin to creep in and they vary depending on the way the medicine was brewer and the intention that was put into it. All of that affects the experience. But it's very colourful, like a tie-dye shirt. It doesn't last very long and it's very abstract, but that's the spirit entering. After that, the journey begins and you will connect with the spirit of Mother Ayahuasca.

How has ayahuasca helped you personally? There is so much transformation that I got from this tea. But the main thing is purpose. It put me on a path where I can not even help but fulfill my purpose. It always gives you what you were meant to receive. I had a traumatic childhood and it affected me in a lot of different ways, especially in relationships, and this gave me clarity and broke some destructive thinking patterns that I had.I'm going to go out on a limb here and assume that this vision to bring the tea to a larger public came to you during an ayahuasca ceremony. The very first time I had ayahuasca, it was one of the most difficult nights of my life. I was curled into a fetal position, crying, shaking, and vomiting. And I knew that at that moment that I was here to share it with the world, I didn't know in what way, but I was like "America needs this."Thanks for speaking with us. Thank you, brother.
