10 Mind-Altering Documentaries About Ayahuasca

 
Are you thinking of trying Ayahuasca for the 1st time?
Wondering where to start?

 
Ayahuasca, also commonly called Yagé, or Daime, is a brew of various psychoactive infusions or decoctions prepared with the Banisteriopsis Caapi vine.  It is usually mixed with the leaves of dimethyltryptamine (DMT)-containing species of shrubs from the genus Psychotria.

When I first felt called to experience Ayahuasca I had no idea where to start. I ended up waiting for a year because I needed to more information. I had a friend urging me to travel to Pisac and work with an Ayahuascero she knew.

I just wasn’t sure. I did a ton of research before I felt comfortable in making a decision to finally go.

It helped to watch documentaries but I had to search them out which was time-consuming. Then, some of them were not helpful at all.

For this reason, I have compiled a list of my favorites with the hopes to make it easier for you to gain knowledge about Ayahuasca.
