We’re pleased to be taking bookings for the next round of Aya: Awakenings retreats in Peru in 2017. AWAKENING IS ESSENTIAL::: Times are difficult globally; awakening is no longer a luxury or an ideal. It’s becoming critical. We don’t need to add more depression, more discouragement, or more anger to what’s already here. It’s becoming essential that we learn how to relate sanely with difficult times. The earth seems to be beseeching us to connect and to discover our innermost essence. This is the best way that we can benefit others. ~ Pema Chodron ~
If you’ve read the book or seen the film, you’ll know that ‘Aya: Awakenings‘ takes you on a journey of shamanic discovery into the heart of the Amazon and the powerful plant medicine ayahuasca. Now you can be part of the awakening with this special 10-day healing retreat with Writer-Producer Rak Razam and legendary curandero Percy Garcia Lozano.
This will be an intensive medicine plant-retreat designed to introduce you to ayahuasca and the healing it can provide on physical, psychological and spiritual levels. You will be guided by Percy over five ayahuasca ceremonies to awaken to your own inner nature, with deep healing supported by dietas with different medicine plants and/or other healing work as needed. Percy’s shamanic work is based on high ethical standards, including personal integrity on every level. He makes a special effort to create a peaceful and safe environment in which the healing process can be more successful. Small numbers of clients enable Percy to follow and monitor the entire healing process of guests from the moment they come until the moment they leave.

The last and possibly the craziest episode in Series 1 with guest – DMT & ayahuasca Rock Star – Rak Razam! Rak spills the jumping beans on 5-MeO-DMT, and also smokes it for us in the jungle during his appearance on the bridge during this timetravel episode, which includes the upscaled rendering of his 5-MeO-DMT experiment in the Amazon.
So, more or less, it’s been ten years since Rak Razam blazed a path as one of the world’s premier ‘experiential’ journalists. he was goaded into action by the 100th birthday symposium for Albert Hofmann hosted Jan 13-16th 2006 in Basel Switzerland, and reported on the event and the culture around it for The Age, the Australian newspapers, Australian Penthouse, High Times and Undergrowth. Here’s a link to the best of the gonzo reporting. My how time flies when you’re transforming consciousness!

“It was the most spiritual and sacred experience I’ve ever been through,” he said. “It’s something very intimate and very human, it’s something we all have within us.” He’s a part of the Terra Incognita Project, an NGO that’s dedicated to studying the state of altered consciousness brought on by 5-MeO in Mexico, where the drug, derived from toads, is popular in shamanic rituals.

Aya: Awakenings on Reset.me …. In the documentary Aya: Awakenings, experiential journalist Rak Razam journeys into the world and visions of Amazonian shamanism. In this 16-minute excerpt from the film exclusive to Reset.me, titled “Jungle Fever,” Razam ventures into the jungle to participate in an ayahuasca ceremony with a group of fellow Westerners…
Synopsis: While the origins of Ayahuasca use in the Amazon Basin remain lost in the mists of prehistory, La Madre came to the attention of the modern western world during the 1960’s, most notably through the work of authors William S. Burroughs and Allen Ginsberg and the Ethnobotanist/Biologist Richard Evans Schultes. Since then, La Madre has spread her tendrils well beyond the Amazon as part of a largely underground spiritual renaissance. This discussion panel will explore its global cultural impact. Panelists: Bia Labate, Alex Gearin, Rak Razam, Mudge, Katia Honour, A. Spengler & Facilitated by Steve McDonald.
