Panel – The Rise Of La Madre: Ayahuasca Beyond The Amazon

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.
