AYA2014
ABRAZANDO LOS
DESAFÍOS DE
LA GLOBALIZACIÓN DE
LA AYAHUASCA.
Hearty welcome! From ICEERS to
each and every one of you, proudly
representing over 50 nationalities
altogether, from nearby and far away
planetary reaches, giving birth to this
historic World Ayahuasca Conference
2014 here on the vibrant island of Ibiza.
En nombre de ICEERS, deseo daros
de corazón una bienvenida a todos y a
cada uno de vosotros, ya que provenís
de los más diversos confines para reunirnos aquí, en la vibrante isla de Ibiza.
Juntos, estamos creando esta histórica Conferencia Mundial de Ayahuasca
2014, que está representada orgullosamente por más de 50 naciones.
Joining AYA2014 indicates a special
sociocultural experience, incentive
and vision, obviously implied, by the
very expenditure and sacrifice necessary for your presence here, to honor our topic. Please be sure to share
your experience, state your truths,
and graciously contribute your wisdom, whatever your role and its
variation, and whether others agree
or disagree. The extensive formal
presentations, workshops and films,
while praiseworthy, are nonetheless
a starting point and incitement of a
deeper level of conference design
and intent. AYA2014 is collectively
designed for the profounder learning,
new ideas, perspective, and expertise,
as well as enhanced networking, galvanized participation and true friendship, that comes when people freely
exchange. Accordingly, AYA2014 asks
you to say and do your piece.
Ayahuasca is emerging on the global
stage by leaps and bounds. There is
no doubt that scientific research into
Ayahuasca and its botanical, psychological and neuro-scientific dimensions are expanding rapidly—some of
those cutting-edge advances will be
presented here in the following days.
At this moment in time, there is a
growing awareness about the important therapeutic and developmental
returns of Ayahuasca. The tendency
is to vision Ayahuasca as increasingly successful in its people-serving
and humanistic bestowment. And to
view the supporters of its responsible
utilization, including all of us here at
AYA2014, as being in tandem on a winning trend of education and advocacy
with national and international institutions and governments, progressively
building the reach of Ayahuasca as a
boon to humanity and civilization.
Unirse a AYA2014 implica poseer una
motivación, una experiencia y un enfoque sociocultural especial, además
de realizar el sacrificio necesario para
llegar hasta aquí para honrar nuestro
tema. Quiero animarte a que compartas tu experiencia, sosteniendo tus
convicciones y contribuyas amablemente con tu sabiduría, sea cual sea
tu rol aquí, e independientemente de
que estés de acuerdo o en desacuerdo con la de otros. La gran cantidad de
presentaciones formales, talleres y películas, aunque encomiable, no es más
que el punto de partida para ahondar
en el propósito para el que fue concebida AYA2014: lograr una experiencia
y aprendizaje profundos que generen
nuevas ideas y perspectivas. Deseamos
potenciar las redes de colaboración, la
participación electrizante y la verdadera
amistad que nace cuando se produce
un intercambio libre entre personas. Por
ello, AYA2014 te invita a que encajes tu
pieza en este puzzle colectivo.
La ayahuasca y las prácticas asociadas
a ella están avanzando en el escenario
global a pasos agigantados. No cabe
duda de que la investigación científica
de la ayahuasca en sus dimensiones
botánica, psicológica y neurocientífica
está creciendo rápidamente – algunos de estos avances de vanguardia
se presentarán en esta Conferencia
durante los próximos días. En este
momento se está produciendo una
creciente toma de conciencia acerca
de la valiosa aportación que ofrece la
ayahuasca para el desarrollo personal
y terapéutico. La tendencia actual es
reconocer que la ayahuasca tiene un
importante valor para el servicio y el
desarrollo humano. Los que creen en
su utilización responsable, incluyén11

The afore-stated progressive slant is not untrue, but it is
one-sided, thus naïve, unless balanced by a comprehension of the mounting adverse, counter-productive forces
threatening the vitality and forward march of the Ayahuasca initiative, as well as the hopes and dedication of
sponsors and supporters. The rapid popularization and
upsurge of Ayahuasca use is increasingly plagued by opportunistic, unethical, ignorant, and harmful practices.
Reports of unfit practice, fraud and harm of seekers are
continuous, on the rise, and affecting indigenous tradition and respect. A vast international population of seekers remains seriously unprotected.
One important causative factor is that Ayahuasca practice abides, unlike medicine and most every profession,
no code of ethics—no clear, instructive morality and
canon of integrity, of right and wrong conduct, nor any
enforcement strategy of such principles, to the detriment
of both the practitioner and the public. And there is no
doubt that international regulatory bodies, national and
legal authorities, mass media, and academic and public
figures are increasingly focused on the course of Ayahuasca as it penetrates further into modern society.
But we are far from helpless for a constructive interdisciplinary, international, cross-cultural regulation of therapeutic and growth-of-wellness practice involving the
use of Ayahuasca. By way of stimulation from various
organizations and persons, all present here at AYA2014,
ICEERS dug deeply into the issue of Ayahuasca’s rising
ethical enigma. We took a lead from Hippocrates, who
seems to have faced analogous trials in his era. The
Hippocratic Oath, the most famous document in all of
medicine, reverentially endures (in original or derivative
forms) in the oath taken worldwide upon graduation of
medical school. Following this model, we formulated the
Hippocratic-Ibiza Psychoactive Practitioners Oath
composed of 13 principles and a liberal, efficient system
of global application and enforcement, all to be programmatically presented to AYA2014 for its supportive review,
enhancement, and ultimate adoption.
Another serious matter is the tidal wave of arrest and
prosecution endured by Ayahuasca practitioners that
has made its way throughout various regions worldwide,
and in particular Europe, since 2009. Practitioners have
been increasingly targeted by harsh law enforcement,
railing against supposed drug-trafficking and clandestine
witchery endangering public health, often based on hazy,
contradictory law.
ICEERS has been assisting defendants in various countries in getting legal defense and providing information
for strategy. The AYA2014 Legal Track is distinguished
and informatively optimistic on the complex intermix of
safety, benefit, public policy, law, ethics and professionalism requiring effective interlacing and refining in the
interest of a sorely lacking international grand strategy
for no-holds-barred drug policy reform. The unequivocal
intention of AYA2014 is for the formation of the Ibiza Expert Committee for Regularization of Psychoactives,
self-dedicated and organized for the purpose of strategizing a consummate, multi-faceted international cam12

FORO PRINCIPAL
donos a todos los que estamos aquí, en AYA2014, junto a
cada vez más instituciones y gobiernos, formamos un tándem ganador, entre educación e impulso socio-político, que
está consolidando el valor que tiene la ayahuasca en beneficio
de la civilización humana.
Esta tendencia constituye un progreso innegable, pero sería parcial, y por lo tanto ingenuo, no reconocer que también
existen otras fuerzas contraproducentes o adversas que
pueden amenazar la vitalidad y la trayectoria de la ayahuasca, así como las esperanzas y dedicación de todas las personas que contribuyen a ella. La rápida popularización y aumento del uso de ayahuasca está plagado cada vez más de
prácticas irresponsables, oportunistas, inmorales e ignorantes. Las noticias sobre prácticas inapropiadas, fraudulentas y dañinas son continuas, y van en aumento, faltando
el respeto a la tradición indígena. De esta forma, una gran
parte de la población internacional que busca tener una experiencia con ayahuasca queda seriamente desprotegida.
Un factor causal importante es que la práctica con ayahuasca, a diferencia de la medicina y casi todas las profesiones,
carece de un código ético claro, de una moral instructora o
un canon de integridad de buena y mala conducta. Tampoco
existe una estrategia de aplicación de dichos principios, en
detrimento tanto del profesional como del público. Y no cabe
duda de que los organismos internacionales de regulación,
las autoridades nacionales y legales, los medios de comunicación y las figuras académicas y públicas observan con
atención la creciente presencia de la ayahuasca en la sociedad moderna.
Pero no estamos indefensos para construir una regulación internacional, transcultural e interdisciplinar sobre el
uso terapéutico y de crecimiento personal que beneficie
a aquellos que usan ayahuasca. Muchos de los presentes,
aquí en AYA2014, han estimulado a ICEERS para profundizar en el desafío de los aspectos éticos relacionados con
la ayahuasca. Por este motivo, hemos tomado como referente a Hipócrates, quien parece haber enfrentado retos
similares en su época. El juramento hipocrático, el documento más famoso de la medicina, ya sea en sus formas
originales o derivadas, perdura como compromiso de los
licenciados en medicina de todo el mundo. Siguiendo este
modelo, hemos formulado el Juramento Hipocrático-Ibiza
para Facilitadores de Psicoactivos. Está compuesto por
13 principios y un liberal y eficiente sistema de aplicación y
ejecución global que se presentará en la programación de
AYA2014 para vuestra revisión constructiva, mejora y su
adopción final.
Otro grave asunto es la ola de detenciones y los procesamientos a que están sometidos los que trabajan con
Ayahuasca en varias regiones del mundo, particularmente
en Europa. Desde 2009, muchas personas han sido víctimas de los ataques de la aplicación de una ley cada vez más
dura que, aludiendo a un supuesto narcotráfico y brujería
clandestina que pone en peligro la salud pública, se ha basado a menudo en una legislación confusa y contradictoria.
ICEERS ha estado ayudando a varios acusados de diferentes países del mundo en este tipo de causas, aportando información para crear estrategias legales para su defensa.
2014
paign aimed at rightful, justified, regulated, professionally managed use of psychoactive plants for individual,
social and civilizational benefit.
If all of us fully utilize the opportunity of having an international audience of this scope in the same space for the
coming days, we can turn this gathering into a pivotal moment in the history of Ayahuasca. Without the support of
our private donors, sponsors, scientific committee, NGO
partners, mentors, volunteers, all the organizations and
people who have helped to promote the event, and the
investment of all of you who have come from near, far,
and very far to Ibiza, this event would have never have
been possible.
I greatly thank all of you and wish you a fruitful and enriching AYA2014 experience!
Very truly yours,
Benjamin De Loenen
Founder & Executive Director ICEERS
PRESENTATION
PRESENTACIÓN
La mesa legal de AYA2014 se distingue por aportar información optimista sobre la compleja relación entre seguridad, beneficio social, políticas públicas, derecho, ética y
profesionalidad que requiere ser tratada y refinada con habilidad, con el fin de desarrollar una estrategia internacional
para la reforma de las políticas de drogas. La intención inequívoca de AYA2014 es favorecer la formación del Ibiza Expert Committee for Regularization of Psychoactives. Este
Comité estará dedicado a la formulación de una estrategia
para el desarrollo de una campaña multifacética internacional enfocada a promover el uso constructivo, profesional y
regularizado de las plantas psicoactivas para el beneficio individual y comunitario.
Si todos nosotros aprovechamos al máximo la oportunidad
de tener una audiencia internacional de esta envergadura
durante los próximos días, podemos convertir esta reunión
en un evento crucial en la historia de la ayahuasca. Sin el
apoyo de nuestros donantes privados, patrocinadores, del
comité científico, ONG’s asociadas, mentores, voluntarios,
todas las organizaciones y personas que han ayudado a
promover el congreso, y la inversión de todos los que habéis venido desde cerca, lejos y muy lejos hasta Ibiza, este
evento nunca hubiera sido posible.
¡Quiero daros las gracias y desearos que AYA2014 sea una
experiencia enriquecedora y fructífera para todos!
Sinceramente,
Benjamin De Loenen

orientadas a la salud, que reconozcan
los derechos humanos y la libertad
cognitiva. El Programa Científico de
la Fundación investiga la meditación,
la neurofisiología y la farmacología de
las sustancias psicoactivas con el fin
de comprender mejor cómo funcionan
dichos alcaloides e identificar sus posibles aplicaciones terapéuticas.

Aline Mast was born in the 21 of june
1956 in Enschede, Holland. At the age
of 23 she became interested in Asian
culture and travelled by herself to India where she ended up in Poona and
became a sannyasini (renunciant)
with from Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh,
later known as Osho. During 6 years
she was very involved with Osho’s
meditations and communities in Holland, India and also in the USA. In
1993 she got in touch with the a Santo
Daime branch community in Mapia,
Brazil and around this time she met
Geraldine Fijneman with whom she
started Santo Daime in The Netherlands. She is part of the Ceu da Santa
Maria, a Santo Daime church with exclusively female members.
Amanda Feilding is the director of the
Beckley Foundation, UK. She studied
comparative religions and mysticism
at Oxford and later did extensive research into psychology, physiology,
and altered states of consciousness.
In 1998, she founded The Beckley
Foundation to do pioneering research
in the fields of human consciousness
and to help bring about global drug
policy reform by creating evidencebased, health-oriented policies which
recognize human rights and cognitive
liberty. The Foundation’s Scientific
Program investigates meditation and
the neurophysiology and pharmacology of psychoactive substances in
order to better understand how these
compunds work and to identify their
potential therapeutic applications.

En nuestros días el uso de ayahuasca como sacramento se puede encontrar en diversas partes del planeta. No sólo las iglesias
tradicionales brasileñas como Santo Daime, Uniao do Vegetal
y Barquinha se han extendido por todo el mundo, también lo
han hecho los nuevos sincretismos y grupos religiosos que han
comenzado a utilizar la ayahuasca en algunos países de Europa.
Esta sesión se centra en el uso religioso de la ayahuasca bajo diferentes perspectivas, tanto a partir de una mirada antropológica,
como desde un punto de vista práctico y personal.

While according to the INCB: “No plants containing DMT, nor
concoctions made with these plants are currently under international control” and most countries lack specific laws that
outlaw ayahuasca, during the last few years a wave of repression has lead to a significant number of arrests for the importation and use of ayahuasca. This session hosts experts in this
field who were elemental in the defense of these cases.

Históricamente, tanto en las prácticas como en los discursos
relacionados con la ayahuasca la mujer ha quedado relegada a un
segundo lugar. El sexismo, la discriminación o los prejuicios son
elementos demasiado comunes en un campo en el que, habitualmente, se predica la bondad espiritual a la vez que se reproducen

the individual and the nature of reality. This is an issue with deep

This presentation offers critical sociological and philosophical reflections on
ayahuasca and other psychedelics as
objects of scientific research in medicine and health. It situates 21st century
scientific inquiry on ayahuasca in the
broader context of how early modern
European social trends and intellectual
pursuits translated into new forms of
empiricism and experimental philosophy, but later evolved into a form of dogmatism that convenienced the political
suppression of academic inquiry into
psychedelics. Applying ideas from the
field of science and technology studies
(STS), we consider how ayahuasca’s
myriad ontological representations in
the 21st century—for example, plant
teacher, traditional medicine, religious
sacrament, material commodity, cognitive tool, illicit drug—influence our
understandings of it as an object of inquiry. We then explore epistemological
issues related to ayahuasca studies, including how the indigenous and mestizo
concept of “plant teacher” or the more
instrumental notion of psychedelics as
“cognitive tools” may impact understandings of knowledge. This leads to
questions about whether scientists engaged in ayahuasca research should be
expected to have personal experiences
with the brew, and how these may be
perceived to help or hinder the objectivity of their pursuits. We conclude with
some brief reflections on the politics of
psychedelic research and impediments
to academic knowledge production in
the field of psychedelic studies.

This study is, in part, a response to
the return to a holistic vision of the
human being with many modern
therapeutic practices taking direct
inspiration from ancient techniques
employed by traditional communities
for the purposes of individual and collective health as opposed to the fragmented and often unilateral vision
of modern medicine. Objectives: To
investigate the motives and relevant
representations of Ayahuasca among
young people from a westernized culture (Cali, Colombia). It was necessary to determine and categorise the
ideas, beliefs and myths that make
up their social representations of
Ayahuasca with a view to finding their
relationship to physical and psychological health. Method: An integral,
qualitative and descriptive study by
means of a semi-structured interview
of 10 subjects between 18 and 25 all
of whom had been drinking Ayahuasca for more than 4 years with Cofan
shamans. The design of the study
was such as to allow for the search
and retrieval of incidences and characteristics across categories and
comparisons were drawn between
theoretical concepts and an overall
theoretical framework (Social Representation Theory). Results: In most
of the young people interviewed there
appeared to have taken place indicators of personal growth through the
process of drinking Ayahuasca in a
shamanic setting, especially relating to the search and discovery of a
personal spirituality. Conclusions:
Among the most common social
representations held by the subjects
was its consideration as a medicinal
plant on a physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual level as well
as the fundamental importance of all
aspects of the Ayahuasca ceremony.

Despite the fact that this phenomenon is relatively new in the western
context, the social representations
developed through the drinking of
Ayahuasca have caused deeply rooted ideas, beliefs and myths in the daily lives of the subjects. Ayahuasca is
a means by which the subjects have
found self-understanding, something
which they were unable to find in
western culture.

SPIRITUALITY IN

ALEX K. GEARIN BRISBANE
PhD Candidate in Anthropology,
University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia
Embodying types of metropolitan
and industrialised consciousness,
ayahuasca drinkers in Australia approach their practice as a means of
gaining ‘natural intelligence’ and organic wellbeing on the level of spirituality. These notions of intelligence
and wellbeing permeate narrative
accounts of ayahuasca visions and
are associated to diverse types of
individual healing and cultural critique. Based on recent ethnographic
fieldwork in Australian ayahuasca
circles, this paper explores ways in
which ayahuasca visions couple with
discourse on anthropogenic ecological crisis and natural alienation to
mediate personalised understandings of sickness, emotional and social
instability, and diverse moral vicissitudes. Distinctions of ‘nature’ and
‘culture’ in this context are shown
to underlie morally charged perceptions of personal and social conduct.
By contrast, concepts of ‘nature’ and
‘culture’ in the anthropology of indigenous Amazonia have undergone
radical revision in recent decades
to the extent that some researchers
are urging the abandonment of the
distinction all together. This paper
imports nuances of nature-culture
theory in Amazonian anthropology
and demonstrates ways in which the
reimagining of ayahuasca in Australian society involves the modern idea
of nature as separate and wounded.
This idea is linked to specific political
and scientific discourse of industrialised states and is shown to provide the
vision by which Australian ayahuasca
drinkers work to overcome social alienation and heal diverse aspects of their
moral lives.

En Colombia el consumo ritual de yajé
se ha diseminado en distintas ciudades del país durante los últimos veinte
años. Actualmente, el tema cobra relevancia nacional e internacional de cara
a los casos de muertes reportadas
durante ceremonias de yajé. Pese a su
expansión entre consumidores urbanos nacionales y extranjeros, el yajé es
actualmente reconocido como referente simbólico de los pueblos amazónicos colombianos, y su consumo se
encuentra amparado por la legitimidad
que le da el reconocimiento constitucional a la diversidad étnica y cultural
de la nación. No obstante, de darse, su
reconocimiento formal como Patrimonio entraría en contradicción con su
actual ritmo de expansión.
Esta ponencia explora el panorama legal del yajé en Colombia, los vacíos que
existen en términos legales, algunos de
los recursos que se han adelantado para
convertirlo en patrimonio, y los pros y
contras de las iniciativas de regulación.

el ritual. En las últimas décadas algunos autores como Schultes, Wasson
y Hoffman, han puesto en evidencia
que el uso de sustancias enteogénicas
ha sido un elemento importante en la
constitución de la mayoría de las culturas y en la potenciación del desarrollo
humano. El objetivo general es el de
documentar el ritual de la ayahuasca
en la provincia de Zamora en Ecuador.
Los objetivos específicos son: conocer
el uso y consumo de la ayahuasca en
la zona de Zamora Chinchipe; detectar la necesidad de transmitir el ritual
antes de que sea olvidado; establecer
y difundir cómo es el ritual de forma
documental (video) y a través de artículos científicos; analizar el uso ancestral por parte de la población nativa;
diseñar propuestas para su mantenimiento de esta tradición; analizar su
utilización y cuál es su función dentro
de la cultura de los shuar. Utilizaremos una práctica de recogida de datos
como es la observación participante.
En este caso vamos a ayudarles a que
mantengan sus tradiciones grabadas y
documentadas antes de que la globalización haga que pueda desaparecer

El perspectivismo se refiere a la concepción de que el mundo está poblado
por agentes distintos de los seres humanos. La relación de los indígenas con
los fenómenos atmosféricos también
es una relación entre las perspectivas,
tienden a considerar los relámpagos,
los truenos, lluvias entidades de su cosmología. Esa relación depende de quién
o qué esto se dice, pero siempre se caracteriza por una relación asimétrica
en la que los chamanes hacen un gran
papel buscan la equidad entre los mundos: el mundo de la Tierra y los mundos
espirituales. Es contradictorio pensar
en la búsqueda del equilibrio en un mundo que está en desequilibrio, pero esa
es la razón por que los chamanes son
puentes entre los mundos. Siendo así,
los “dueños de los tiempos” interfieren
en la vida de los Ashaninka. La intermediación entre sheripiaris (chamanes) y
los ”dueños de los tiempos” también se
produce a través de la utilización de Kamarampi (ayahuasca) que hace de este
vehículo puente entre los dos mundos.
Los fenómenos meteorológicos son de
gran importancia en la vida cotidiana de
los Ashaninka, la búsqueda de explicaciones para los cambios son demasiados importantes también. Así que les
presento es como los sheripiari están
utilizando esta fuente de conocimientos e información en la búsqueda de la
comprensión de los cambios en el clima
y, por supuesto, en las relaciones con
los propietarios de estos fenómenos y
el mundo de la vida dentro de su cultura
Ashaninka.

This presentation illustrates how the
sonic mythography and visionary
artistry of our times has been cultivated with the assistance of DMT. I
focus specifically on the influence of
DMT on psychedelic electronic music
and culture, using vocal and visual
samples. The story begins with a gift
Terence McKenna bestowed upon
key figures in the early Goatrance
development, which inspired a transnational techno-mystical movement
with distinct music aesthetics and
festival culture. I explore how DMT
consciousness has infiltrated psychedelic trance, where the remixtical
artifice of electronic music production and the sampling of entheogens
affect mystical experiences. The
works of Shpongle, Alex Grey and
other artists are investigated as multi-mediations of the gnostic payload of
hyperspatial transit. I discuss the DMT
blend changa – a so called “smokeable ayahuasca” – and its influence in
Australia and elsewhere. Finally I offer
insights on how the use of DMT has
become an increasingly popular route
into the mystical experience.

The Vedas, which were composed
between approximately 1,500 BCE
and 800 BCE, are texts comprising
invocatory hymns and mantras that
are recited during rituals performed
by priests (Brahmans) in South Asia.
The oldest of the four Vedas is the Rg
Veda, in which many of the mantras
are dedicated to soma, which is described both as an intoxicating plant
and as a deity. The same plant/deity
(haoma) is also revered in Zoroastrian religion. The botanical identity of
the soma/haoma plant has long puzzled scholars; dozens of propositions
have been made in the last 250 years.
Currently, three of the alternative
propositions are generally endorsed
by various academics. In 1968 the
famous mycophile Gordon Wasson
suggested that soma was the fly
agaric mushroom, amanita muscaria. However, textual descriptions
of soma in the Vedas largely undermine this theory. In 1989 Flattery and
Schwarz proposed peganum harmala. Then, in a well-reasoned article
also published in 1989, the German
Indologist Harry Falk revived an old
theory and presented considerable
evidence that soma was the ephedra
plant. In this paper I revisit the issue
of the botanical identity of soma/
haoma and suggest, alternatively,
that soma may have not been a single plant, but a combination of plants
producing a form of ayahuasca (or
’anahuasca’).

In this paper I present an analysis
of the narratives of alterity with the
plurality of the sacred practices of
ayahuasca and its correlations and
implications with the phenomenon
of the sacred, called entheogen, in
the construction of the processes of
consciousness expansion, and how
the sacred is constituted and flows
in each individual in the interaction
of therapeutic processes. Also, it
points out the process of urbanization of ayahuasca outside their original context and their various uses:
mental , spiritual and physical. To do
so, it shows an analysis of the narratives in the practice of ayahuasca
restricted to three regions: the “Vale
do Pati” Chapada Diamantina – BA;
community leaders and production
of ayahuasca, in Manaus – Amazonas (psychiatry clinic); and finally,
in the metropolis of São Paulo with
people who are outside of a religious
context considered the “neoayahuasqueiros.” The analysis is based
on three important points: before
experiencing the plant; during rituals
under the immediate effect of it, and
as a remembrance of the experience.
The analysis of the three moments of
the same person shows the transformation, theoretically a positive transformation. In short, I seek to indicate
that a previous worldview based on
one’s tradition and culture is changed
by new assumptions of self, understood as an experience that allows
one’s to reflect on the existential consciousness of oneself.

Esta presentación tiene como objetivo reflexionar sobre algunos aspectos relacionados con la forma en que
los miembros del grupo conocido
como “União do Vegetal” (UDV), han
aprovechado el conocimiento doctrinal común a esa vertiente religiosa
ayahuasca. Para esto abordaremos
los aspectos relacionales que ocurren
entre estos individuos y sus vivencias
sonoras dentro del ritual. El 8 de mayo
de 2007, el maestro del recuerdo José
Luís Oliveira ofició la implantación de
la UDV en Portugal. Provisionalmente
el nombre del grupo se define como
“Distribuição Autorizada do Vegetal”
(DAV-Lisboa). Actualmente los rituales tienen lugar en un edificio situado
en una zona bohemia de la ciudad, el
barrio de “Alfama”, conocido por sus
varias casas de fado. En este escenario, universos dispares, – que supuestamente tienden a repelerse, a pesar
de estar separados por paredes e intenciones -, se integran por medio de
la escucha. Durante el ritual, uno de
los sentidos que se aguza constantemente es el de la audición, y en este
acto el oído es atraído y direccionado
al entendimiento de los contenidos
doctrinarios. En este bies, a través de
la metodología fenomenológica y de la
perspectiva teórica de la etnomusicología, este trabajo busca comprender
de qué manera subjetiva la performance de la escucha media la aprensión
de los conocimientos singulares del
grupo. Para hacer una mirada analítica
del acto de escuchar, tomo prestados
conceptos como Paisaje Sonora definido por Schafer con el fin de auxiliarme en la revisión de este proceso. Por
lo tanto, intento revisar la función del
participante dentro del ritual, ya sea
como receptor, como co-autor de la
performance auditiva.

Phenomenological research has concentrated on the way psychedelic
experiences in general and ayahuasca experiences in particular were experienced by a subject. Researchers
focused on the content of the experience and the thoughts, ideas and/
or emotions that were revealed in it.
While this approach is tremendously
important and insightful, it is only part
of what comprises a full philosophical
analysis of ayahuasca. In this paper,
I will open up a new domain based
on the work of Michel Foucault: the
use of ayahuasca as a spiritual technique. When we analyse the way ayahuasca transforms us, we must take
into account the way it is integrated
in our day to day life as a practice by
which we intentionally let ourselves
be transformed. This practice has
four characteristics: It is transformative, it has a relation to truth, it requires courage and it is ongoing.
By analysing the use of ayahuasca
in this framework, we can embed it
more easily into our lives. Instead of
it being a singular peak-experience,
ayahuasca becomes a force that continuously aids us in the transformation of ourselves and moreover of the
society around us. It helps us question the three factors that constitute
our identity: our own subjectivity (our
separateness), the power structures
in society that form and steer this
subjectivity in a certain direction and
the ‘truth’ spoken about our subjectivity in science and/or religion.

Introduction: Grief is a universal experience of the fragmentation of
identity caused by the the loss of an
emotional bond that affects humans
in a multidimensional way. So far, the
influence of ayahuasca on this process has not been explored.
Method: We designed an online survey
to analyze the influence of ayahuasca
on the dimensions that are affected by
the grieving process (n=45) and performed a qualitative analysis of the experiences of the participants (n=30).
Results: Ayahuasca influences primarily the acceptance of loss, the understanding of past events, a greater
appreciation for the relationship and
the integration of transcendent dimension in their lives. Likewise, most
recurrent themes are the establishing contact with, and saying farewell
to the deceased. Conclusions: In all
participants the ayahuasca has had a
key role and positive influence on the
process of grief. Future research will
need to contrast these results in prospective clinical studies.

Ayahuasca has been identified as
having therapeutic potential for the
treatment of addiction and other
mental health challenges such as
depression and trauma-related disorders. While long-standing indigenous knowledge, anecdotal evidence
and several preliminary observational studies consistently point in this
direction more research is needed
with more rigourous methods and
diverse therapeutic settings and cultural contexts. This presentation will

Ayahuasca is a ritual drink with psychoactive effects used in some Brazilian religions. By its action on the
serotonergic system, involved in
many psychopathologies, studies
pointed out several possibilities of its
therapeutic use, particularly in mental illnesses such as drug abuse and
depression. The aim of this study was
to investigate the impact of continued
use of ayahuasca on mental health of
religious ayahuasqueros. We applied
questionnaires to members of three
different ayahuasca religions to verify the occurrence of symptoms related to stress, anxiety, depression,
hopelessness, and alcohol and tobacco uses. We also investigated the
expression of self-consciousness,

a multi-country, multi-site program
of research known as the Ayahuasca Treatment Outcome Project. The
presentation will discuss key principles, legal, ethical and methodological challenges identified to date in
project planning and implementation
– for example, the rationale to focus
on addictions; the appropriateness
and feasibility of identifying the “active ingredients” of an integrated
approach that combines shamanic
and psychotherapeutic approaches;
bio-ethical issues in site selection related to both energetic and physical
safety; choice of outcomes to monitor over time. This presentation will
also briefly outline the pros and cons
of alternative and potentially complementary approaches to the study of
the therapeutic benefits of ayahuasca – traditional clinical research with
controlled designs, health services
research in more naturalistic settings, realist evaluation and indigenous-culture based evaluation. The
aim will be to stimulate reflection
and discussion of these alternative
approaches and the potential for
reconciliation and synergy. We will
draw upon the experience of ATOP
and conclude with an update on current status of funding proposals under
development and review for 2014-15
for project sites in Peru, Mexico, Brazil,
Argentina and Uruguay.

social abilities and mechanisms of
visual perception. Results showed
that ayahuasqueros presented uses
of alcohol and tobacco below those
observed in national epidemiological
studies. No significant pathological
frame was observed in
the sample analyzed, nor deleterious effects on visual perception and
social abilities. The self-rumination
was positively correlated with psychopathological indices and self-reflection was the predominant mode
of self-consciousness functioning
with higher values. In conclusion, the
results suggest that the ritual use of
ayahuasca does
not promote mental health problems,
and self-rumination act as mediating
factor of psychopathology. It was not
possible demonstrate the positive effects observed derived from continuous use of ayahuasca. Socio-cultural
variables that should influence the
mechanisms related to wellbeing and
mental health has to be isolated in
future ayahuasca studies. Self-consciousness mechanisms such as
reflection and rumination have to
be investigated in ayahuasca users
to define how they contribute to improving resilience that could explain
positive mental health states.

Ayahuasca is a psychoactive tea
used in ritual and religious contexts.
Studies suggest its possible use for
therapeutic purposes, as in the treatment of depression and drug abuse,
etc. This is ex-post-facto study which
investigated the use of psychoactive
ayahuasca in religious context has
an effect on the mind, in order to
provide higher levels of selfreflective
self-consciousness, and psychological and spiritual well-being. Thus, we
mapped the relationships between
the processes related to the self as
self-consciousness and the psychological and spiritual well-being in the
dependence of religious congruence
of the distinct groups (ayahuasca drinkers, traditional evangelical
Baptists and non-religious people
56
non-users of ayahuasca). Participants in the study people were over
18 years of age. Psychometric scales
used to measure the constructs of
interest were Situational Self-Awareness Scale, Religious Congruence
Scale, Global Religiosity Scale, Subjective Happiness Scale and Spiritual
Well-Being Scale, and a social-demographic. The generated data received
quantitative treatment procedures of
psychometrics and factor analysis,
aided by examination of the interrelationships among variables with the
Spearman correlation coefficient.
Results showed satisfactory psychometric properties, factorial structure
was replicate as found in the original
studies with excellent reliability by
Cronbach’s alpha. The UDV group
showed significant levels of self-consciousness (reflection), and psychological well-being. The Baptists had a
positive correlation with the religious
congruence and agnostics showed
no significant levels of self-consciousness or well-being. In conclusion, the study corroborated the
literature, in addition, demonstrated
a close relationship between religiosity and well-being. Ayahuasca is
presented here as an important tool
in the investigation of consciousness
mechanisms.

Introduction: This study investigates
Norwegian and Swedish participants
in a four-night ayahuasca ceremony
in Sweden on the accounts of their
motivation for participation; their
mystical experiences during the ceremony and self reported experienced
effects of the ceremony. To the best
of our knowledge this is the first
study examining Scandinavian participants in an ayahuasca ceremony.
Methods: A form is used for collecting
demographic information about the
participants. To assess participants’
motivation a short questionnaire is
constructed. In order to examine
participants’ experienced immediate
effects three different methods are
used: 1) a 100-item version of the
Mystical Experience Questionnaire
(Pahnke 1963) called the States of
Consciousness Questionnaire (Griffiths et al. 2006); 2) narratives are
solicited from the participants and
analyzed using The Empirical Phenomenological Psychological Method
(Gunnar Karlsson, 1995); 3) a short
questionnaire asking additional questions. Results: Data collection starts
March 28 and results will be available
for presentation at the conference.

The principal context of drinking
Ayahuasca is during shamanic rituals and for few decades in religious
or psychotherapeutic celebrations,
and also throughout the world by
some private groups more or less
organized, rarely with the agreement
of the laws of the countries. Some
studies show statistically significant
improvement of quality of life when
using Ayahuasca-assisted therapy or
Ayahuasca rituals, such as reduction
of addictive behaviors. Except during
some studies with specific groups of
patients, it is difficult to appreciate
the number and the profiles of people who consume or have consumed
Ayahuasca. The main difficulty can
be explained with the context of the
illegality of drinking Ayahuasca, especially in Europe. Furthermore, the
lack of control and follow-up of these
patients and the absence of regulation procedures regarding the multiplicity of celebrations, can generate
some inappropriate behaviors and
reactions that could potentially be serious with adverse impact for the patients and also from the point of view
of the legislator. The aim of this study
is to gather the profiles of Europeans
people who have already consumed
Ayahuasca: who they are, why they
drink this beverage, and what benefits they could expect. A large-scale
online survey sent to Europeans people that attend or have attended Ayahuasca groups, without distinction.

JAAKKO LAVONIUS
Master in Humanities, Helsinki

The Master’s thesis The View of Life
Influences of Ayahuasca Experiences is based on the material collected through in-depth interviews and
questionnaires during a field study
period in the Peruvian Amazon. The
approach of the study is principally phenomenological, aiming to find
out 1) What kinds of motives the informants have to participate in the
ayahuasca ceremonies? 2) How they
feel they have benefitted from participating the ceremonies? 3) How
the experiences have influenced
their spirituality? 4) What kinds of
influences on the informants’ worldviews have the experiences created?
5) What common similarities can be
found between different people’s
ayahuasca experiences? 6) How the
ayahuasca experiences can be compared to Abraham Maslow’s theoretical models of peak experience and
self-actualization? The descriptions
of the ayahuasca experiences and
the changes on the world-views of the
informants provoked by them were
compared to the results of other related investigations and to Maslow’s
theoretical models by the methods
of systematical analysis. The study is
also partly epistemological research,
as it explores a method of knowledge
acquisition and formation that the informants feel they are applying. The
study points out that the ayahuasca
experiences have had a significant
impact on the world-view of the experiencers, and on their relation to
spirituality. According to the informants, however, spirituality is only one
part of the range of being human. In
many replies, becoming a complete
human and an authentic self was
sensed to be a central goal. In this
process spirituality seemed to have a
significant role. Many informants also
reported on the positive effects that
ayahuasca had on their health, and
58

in different psychological and physiological healing processes. Comparing the results and outcomes of the
research with other related research
results, their similarities are considerable. The ayahuasca experiences
have had a central role in the process
of self-actualization of the individuals, comparable with the Maslow’s
concept of peak experience’s significance as a part of his theory of selfactualization, located at the top of
Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, which
in Maslow’s later theory formulation
gains selftranscendent qualities. The
central conclusion of the study is that
these motives of self-actualization
and selftranscendence, as guiding
factors of a person’s life, seemed to
gain a long-lasting or permanent role
in the informants’ life.

Background: There is a growing scientific interest in the effects of hallucinogens in general and the religious
use of psychoactive brew ayahuasca
in Brazil in particular. However, there
is not yet a standard instrument
used in Brazil to evaluate the effects
of hallucinogens. The Hallucinogen
Rating Scale (HRS) is a questionnaire
widely used in the U.S. and Europe
to evaluate the effects of several
psychoactive substances, including
hallucinogens. Objective: To translate and adapt the HRS to Brazilian
Portuguese. Method: We followed
three steps: 1) the authors of the article translated the HRS into Portuguese, in order to establish an initial
version; 2) two independent translators back-translated this version
into English; 3) a revision committee
produced a final version of the Brazilian Portuguese version. This final
version was developed comparing
the initial translations and backtranslations, through a dialogic process
with the author of the instrument.
Results: A final Portuguese version
of the HRS, following the guidelines
for semantic and conceptual equivalence between English and Portuguese to describe hallucinogen-induced subjective states. Discussion:
A Brazilian version of the HRS – an
instrument widely used throughout
the world to quantify effects of psychoactive drugs – provides a sensitive instrument for evaluation of the
effects of hallucinogenic substances
in Brazil. Also, the statistical analysis
is in progress, consequently there is
the possibility to present some of the
preliminary data regarding the psychometric validation at the time of
the Congress.

In this talk, results obtained from laboratory biomedical research done in
Brazil in the last three years will be
presented. Experienced ayahuasca
users (12 males, 8 females) drank
”Hoasca” (donated by União do Vegetal UDV) in a laboratory setting. All
procedures were approved by the
Committee for Ethical Research of
UNIFESP. Concentration of main
active principles was estimated by
gas chromatography (GC-NPD) and
were as follows (mg/ ml): DMT 0.16,
Harmine 1.37, Tetrahydroharmine
0.97. The chosen dose was (mg/kg):
DMT 0.70, Harmine 4.48, Tetrahydrohramine 3.60. Electroencephalogram (EEG) recordings (Brain Vision
actiCHamp, 64 channels, 2 kHz) were
performed during three consecutive
hours while the subjects remained
quiet, eyes-closed, in resting-state
condition. Blood and saliva samples
were collected every 25 minutes to
measure ayahusca’s active principles and metabolites, and cortisol,
respectively. Results have shown significant decreases in spectral power,
after 50 minutes from ingestion, in
delta (1-4 Hz), theta (4-8 Hz), alfa
(8-13 Hz) and beta (13-30 Hz) bands
in parietal electrodes bilaterally (P5,
P6, P7 and P8). After 100 minutes,
increases in slow-gamma (30-50 hz)
and fast-gamma (50-100 Hz) were
detected at the same parietal electrodes. Analysis of blood and saliva
samples are underway, and correlations between EEG and these variables will also be shown. The current

The presentation summarizes the linguistic markers that indicate the level
of integration of ayahuasca experiences. Eleven European participants
were followed for the period of 1 year,
during which they participated in 3-5
ayahuasca rituals and a follow up period of 6 months. Follow up reports
were gathered every 6-8 weeks in
group setting completed by individual closing interviews. Independent
clinical psychologists distinguished
the participants who integrated the
experience by the end of the one
year period from those who failed to
do so. The subgroups of ‘integrated’
and ‘not integrated’ were then determined and the follow-up reports of
the groups analyzed by a quantitative narrative method (NarrCat) developed by the Hungarian Scientific
Academy and the University of Pécs.
The NarrCat focuses on linguistic
specifics such as the rate of emotional vs cognitive words, passivity vs activity, I vs we reference, the style and
tense of narration etc. A Regressive
Imagination Dictionary was also used
as part of the analysis focusing on
psychological qualities such as drive,
moral, restrictions, abstraction, defense etc. The linguistic patterns of
the two subgroups revealed by the
analysis were compared. The overall
aim of the analysis is to discover psychological factors that support the
integration of ayahuasca experiences
allowing therapists to better understand the process of integration and
develop tools for its facilitation.

Entropy is a dimensionless quantity
that is used for measuring uncertainty about the state of a system but
it can also imply physical qualities,
where high entropy is synonymous
with high disorder. Entropy is applied here in the context of states of
consciousness and their associated
neural dynamics, with a particular
focus on the psychedelic state. The
psychedelic state is considered an
exemplar of a primitive or primary
state of consciousness that preceded the development of modern, adult,
human, normal waking consciousness. Based on neuroimaging data
with psilocybin, a classic psychedelic drug, it is argued that the defining
feature of ‘primary states’ is elevated
entropy in certain aspects of brain
function, such as the repertoire of
functional connectivity motifs that
form and fragment across time. It is
noted that elevated entropy in this
sense, is a characteristic of systems
exhibiting ‘self-organised criticality’, i.e., a property of systems that
gravitate towards a ‘critical’ point
in a transition zone between order
and disorder in which certain phenomena such as power-law scaling
appear. This implies that entropy is
suppressed in normal waking consciousness, meaning that the brain
operates just below criticality. It is
argued that this entropy suppression furnishes consciousness with a
constrained quality and associated
metacognitive functions, including
reality-testing and self-awareness. It
is also proposed that entry into primary states depends on a collapse of
the normally highly organised activity within the default-mode network
(DMN) and a decoupling between the
DMN and the medial temporal lobes
(which are normally significantly coupled). These hypotheses can be tested by examining brain activity and associated cognition in other candidate

differing brain regions, how it affects
brain waves, and importantly how it

neurogenesis, and the implications
this could have for depression and addiction. While looking at this zoomed
in perspective, the zoomed out perspective looking at human personality

N,N-dimethyltryptamine (DMT) is
classified as a naturally occurring
serotonergic hallucinogen of plant
origin. It has also been found in animal tissues and regarded as an endogenous trace amine transmitter.
The vast majority of research on
DMT has targeted its psychotropic
properties with less focus on its effects beyond the nervous system.
The recent discovery that DMT is an
endogenous ligand of the sigma-1
receptor may shed light on yet undiscovered physiological mechanisms
of DMT activity and reveal some of its
putative biological functions. A threestep active uptake process of DMT
from peripheral sources to neurons
underscores a presumed physiological significance of this endogenous
hallucinogen. In the presentation,
we will overview the literature on the
effects of sigma-1 receptor ligands
on cellular bioenergetics, the role
of serotonin, and serotonergic analogues in immunoregulation and the
data regarding gene expression of
the DMT synthesizing enzyme indolethylamine-N-methyltransferase in
carcinogenesis. We conclude that the
function of DMT may extend central
nervous activity and involve a more
universal role in cellular protective
mechanisms. The assumed role of
DMT in cell protection, regeneration,
and immunity helps understanding
why ayahuasca has been used traditionally in healing ceremonials among
the indigenous and mestizo cultures of
the Amazon Basin.

Despite numerous published scientific papers and anecdotal reports indicating the presence of DMT in a wide
variety of plants, there is much ambiguity, contradiction, and speculation
regarding the actual chemical composition of many of these plants. Discussions of indigenous preparations,
which include DMT-containing plants,
often treat the phytochemistry of the
β-carboline-containing plants as fairly
uniform. However, new examinations
of these plants, utilizing modern analytical techniques, have shown them
to contain a variety of compounds in
differing ratios. The DMT-Nexus has
carried out unique chromatography
and mass spectrometry analyses of
specimens reported to contain DMT
and β-carbolines, from both novel and
previously examined species complexes. Thus far, we have tested species within the Acacia, Phalaris, Psychotria, Banisteriopsis and related
genera, as well as Mimosa tenuiflora
and Diplopterys cabrerana. This research has elucidated questions and
hypotheses regarding: indigenous
botanical preparations; identities of
plants found in the global market of
entheogenic vendors; and the phytochemistry of plants that ethnobotanical researchers encounter in their
own geographic regions. Key results
from our ongoing inquiries show that
neither Tetrapterys methystica nor
Alicia anisopetala contain harmala alkaloids, despite being used in similar
manners to Banisteriopsis caapi. Additionally, our analyses of Diplopterys
cabrerana have not demonstrated
the presence of 5-MeO-DMT, despite
numerous anecdotal claims that this
plant induces subjectively similar effects to 5-MeO-DMT. Similarly, our
analyses of Banisteriopsis muricata
leaves have not detected the pres-
Healing, trance-inducing herbs and
practices are not limited to primeval
cultures only. Western society has
since antiquity had many many of
its own, although mostly hidden in
occultism due to a long period of persecution of witchcraft. Presentation
deals with one of them, being a relative to ayahuasca through sharing
same harmala alkaloids. The plant
“Moly” was Hermes’s gift to Odysseus (Homer) as an aid in rescuing
his sailors from Circe’s spell. She
presumptively turned them into pigs,
which is merely a parable for the hedonistic imbalance of excessive eating and drinking. This herb has nowadays been identified as Syrian rue
(Peganum harmala). The plant will
be evaluated from a historical point
of view through a review of scientific
literature. Its botany will be presented as well, especially how to ensure
oneself an independent source of
fresh, potent, stabile, safe and beneficial spring of spiritual health and
well being. Due to the fact that DMT
present in ayahuasca is an internationally banned substance, recognizing easily accessible alternatives,
replacements or additives to ayahuasca might turn out to be a crucial
point in order to preserve the light of
the soul’s freedom from darkness of
blind collectivism.

notable ethnobotanists to the contrary. The significance of this research is
that it presents the merging of traditional ethnobotanical knowledge into
contemporary scientific contexts,
while expanding our phytochemical

and chemical analyses, we are beginning to correlate plants identified in

chemical constituents with their indigenous classifications and uses.
We are also working towards identifying plants with alkaloid profiles analogous to traditional entheogens.

This interactive session is an open
invitation to share practical tips and
techniques for navigating the realms
of spiritual experience. Just as a good
night’s sleep and an empty stomach
help to prepare us for receiving the
power of sacred plants, certain qualities of attention and intention can be
naturally conducive to opening ourselves to the grace and healing they
may offer. As studied by Western
psychology, psychedelic experience
has most often been viewed in terms
of set and setting, the internal state
of mind and the external state of the
environment, usually determined at
the onset of the experience. However, this approach does not really address the actual challenge of deeply
engaging with the experience under
whatever conditions it is taking place.

the audience is welcome to contribute
the insight of their own spiritual practice. Topics briefly discussed may
include: using mantras and mudras,
words and gestures for directing energy; using breath and concentration
for focusing attention inwards or outwards; imprinting with mementos,
music, and visualization for reconnecting with past journeys; recognizing fear as the sheer intensity of
aliveness present here; transmuting
the euphoria of rapture into the stillness of bliss; entering union through
letting go, surrender, and embrace.

of spiritual leaders of the Ashaninka
Kampa River Amonia People – which
has an ancient culture on the use of
ayahuasca – among other indigenous
peoples, has generated processes of
rescue of indigenous cultures and
their sacred values, from the construction of shamanic alliances, consecration of sacred sites and ceremonial centers, realization of cultural
festivals and formation of networks
for communication and exchange of
experiences. These initiatives also
strengthen ecological awareness,
reflecting on conservation and environmental recovery of various areas. Through the use of ayahuasca

Humankind has always used psychoactive substances. The drive for
mind-altering substances is part of
natural human needs. Even though,
since the 14/15th century, drug use
have been progressively demonized
and proscribed all over the world. The
consequences of this “World War on
Drugs” were devastating: increasing
drug abuse, addiction and crime, dissolution of native knowledge and many
other psychological and social problems. Nevertheless, during the 20th
century, Ayahuasca use has spread
from the Amazon to the world through
shamans and Brazilian religions and
is presenting whit a humankind a new
safe, and healthful approach to drug
use. What lessons can Ayahuasca
use teach us? How can these lessons

help us toward a new paradigm on
drugs? This presentation will discuss
some important concepts and review
successful experiences with Ayahuasca that are helping contemporary
society to build a harmonious co-existence with drugs. Some wise lessons
learned with Ayahuasca: 1. Respect to
nature, native knowledge and diversity; 2. Include culture and its practices
as an essential part of defining and
regulating drug use; 3. It is possible
to have a healthy drug use; 4. Drugs
can successfully treat drug addiction;
5. Drugs can help us understand and
deal with multidimensional aspects of
reality; 6. Reconnection with nature,
increased sense of brotherhood and
perception of interconnection of life; 7.
A new successful regulation for drugs
is possible and needs to be built with
drug users; 8. Drugs can help building
sustainable ecological communities;
9. The importance of informal social
regulations on drug use; 10. Openness
of mind and heart to change.

Introduction: An overview of findings
of research looking at the correlaton between insights gained from
ayahuasca use and concepts of
consciousness, nature and spirituality found in Australian (ab)Original
Native Science and IKS (Indigenous
Knowledge Systems). Bob Randal, an
Original Elder explains that Kanyini,
the 4 dimensions of Original life are
made up of Tjukrrpa – Creation Period/Dreamtime, Kururipa – Spirit,
soul, psyche, Walytja – Family Worship, and Ngura -Land, home, space,
Mother (including pre-birth communication). All of existence is based in
totemistic systems – time is absolute- there is no linear time (in common to the beliefs of many African
tribes).If plant medicines like ayahuasca are capable of taking us back
to a more intrinsically connected
state surely there may be a tangible
link to be made between Australian
Original viewpoints of consciousness,
nature and spirituality and those
of persons who take ayahuasca.
Methods: This qualitiative study has
gained its main body of data through
coding interviews using Grounded
Theory principles with participants in
the Americas, Europe and Australia
comprising a cross-section of ‘novices’, long term users, prominent entheogenists and practitioners made
between late 2013 and mid 2014.
The dissection points have been concepts of time, matter, space, relation
to nature and land, death, family
and the spirit world This has then be
applied to a study of Original consciousness and spirituality amongst
groups of Original elders and custodians of the ancient ‘lore’ during 5
monthsof ethnographic field work in
Australia. Results: Fieldwork is still
underway but already findings show
that ayahuasca use broadens worldviews and transpersonal domains in
a way similar to the “ways of seeing”
of Original cultures. There is also evidence that ayahuasca use can assist
Original people to re-engage with the
Dreaming and toalleviate cultural
trauma. Ayahuasca has proved to be
beneficial to users in awakening relationship to nature, cosmovision and
spirituality, and to alleviate cultural
and body traumas for not just non-indigenous groups but also for Origine
groups. Possible Derived Lines of
Research: Future interdisciplinary
works to deepen engagement with
Native Science in the fields of postcolonial studies and transpersonal
ecopsychology. Further study on the
benefits of working with ayahuasca
in cases of collective cultural trauma
for both non-indigenous and Original
groups.

Healing with and learning from ”Master Plants” is a cornerstone of Shipibo ayahuasca shamanism. This talk
reports on the use of dietas and other
traditional Shipibo practices in urban
North America including discovering
and dieting Master Plants native or
local to California. As stewarded by
practitioners trained in the Shipibo
shamanic tradition, using methods
adapted from the native jungles of
Peru, dieters have experienced physical, mental, and spiritual healing,
clearing, alignment, transformation,
and expansion. Specific results experienced by dieters across short-term
and long-term timeframes include
relief of physical conditions such as
asthma, reproductive disorders, and
clinical depression. Dieters have also
experienced results that are less easy
to characterize clinically including
increased happiness, resolution of
spiritual crises, and improved cognition. Results and examples are drawn
from 46 dietas held over a period of
five years by 21 individuals ranging
in length from 28 days to a year. In
working with traditional dietas and
ayahuasca practices, a body of folk
knowledge has been gathered, which
has informed our ongoing adaptation
and cultivation of traditional practices for contemporary communities.
Our results offer many possible directions and access points for further
exploration.

Nelson Ortiz Rodríguez es un chamán
no indio con formación occidental y
reconocimiento de la Gobernación

A través de ocho años de trabajo con
Ayahuasca y otras plantas sagradas
ha logrado integrar de una forma sinérgica al chamanismo tradicional indígena con las tradiciones filosóficas
y espirituales de oriente y occidente,
ofreciendo una visión filosófica, pragmática e incluyente. A las ceremonias
han llegado personas en búsqueda
de salud física y espiritual, entre otras
personas con graves problemas personales como la drogadicción. A veces
estas personas tienen dificultades en
adaptarse a la idiosincrasia y a la tradición indígena, la tradición moderna
chamánica ofrece una puerta más
amplia y una visión más integral para
estas personas. Las ceremonias son
un lugar ecléctico en que hay espacio
para diferentes estilos de vida, convicciones y religiones. Se trabaja desde la
luz y cada participante se conecta con
las tradiciones con que más afinidad
tenga. Existen muchos casos de éxito
por presentar de personas que han
cambiado su vida por completo después del contacto con la medicina, sea
por algunas ceremonias para un tema
muy específico o un proceso más largo
que lleva a la transcendencia espiritual.
Concluyendo, el chamanismo moderno
es una integración de diferentes tradiciones, proveyendo un acceso más amplio a la curación integral del cuerpo y el
alma. Hace una diferencia al nivel individual, permitiendo un desarrollo personal
y espiritual, y pueda llegar a hacer una
diferencia al nivel colectivo también.

It is important to say that currently Brazilian law permits the use of
ayahuasca, as long as it is part of a
ritual with religious purposes. I got
to know Ayahuasca 32 years ago. As
a person, I felt enchanted by it, as a
psychiatrist, I realized I had found a
powerful tool. I sought, in Hermetic
Science, the light at the end of the
tunnel and there it was. The second
Hermetic Principle, the principle of
correspondence, says: “As above,
so below; as below, so above.” This
hermetic truth is the theoretical basis for all our work with drug users,
in particular for the work reported
here. Let’s imagine the musical scale.
For all we know, it consists of only
seven notes. But the question is: are
there really only these seven notes?
The most obvious answer would be
“Yes!” However, within a theoretically infinite range, we know we can only
perceive those frequencies our human ear allows us to. But there are several Cs and various Bs. Based on this
principle we realized that transcendence is the same “note” as drunkenness only an octave above. The drunk
and the transcendent, the drugged and
the magician live at the same address.
Nevertheless, while one inhabits the
basement of the building, sharing his
home with rats and cockroaches, the
other lives on the top floor with a beautiful view of the sea. If we assume that
this is true, and I am convinced that it
is, then our job is to create an elevator
that takes us from the basement to
the penthouse. This lift exists, and it is
called Ayahuasca.

Right from the most distant prehistoric sites of care and healing were
identified for a particular energy and
environmental shape. The sensitivity
towards nature, plants, rocks, exposure to light or in the dark of night
shelters , areas of plant growth, it
was always a crucial aspect in the
identification and selection of suitable topos energy to medical care. The
place is already a part of the therapy.
Somehow the emergence of modern
medicine and the indifferent localization of the sites linked to the planning of care therapies and the undifferentiated urbanization, has in fact
neglected, apart from a few isolated
cases, this aspect of the cultures of
health. In this historical moment in
which western medicine and ethnomedicine are trying ethnomedicine
a common approach to medical science by exchanging knowledge and
experiences, there is space to bring
greater awareness to the relationship
between the care, the environment
and ancient knowledge. The research
project involves a multidisciplinary
team of anthropologists, physicists,

and medical doctors and its primary
objective is the analysis of places of
healing and the processes that have
in place. In particular, in it was analyzed Mayantuyacu, a healing center located in the Peruvian Amazon where
the ancient art of healing ashanika is
set. Mayantuyacu is situated on the
bank of a river with thermal water at
100 ° flowing in the middle of the forest. Around the central Maloca, where
here is communal living, were built to
accommodate malocas other people
who come to Mayantuyacu to know
and to seek treatment from knowing
millennial ashanika and properties of
thousands of plants including plants
teacher. We analyzed the following
elements: water, music (icaros),
teacher plants, ceremonial architectures (malocas) involved during
the healing ceremonies and their
impact on different species (plants,
animals and humans). Particularly
we analysed the following elements:
1. Architecture; 2.Water; 3. Music; 4.
Teaching Plants. The co-presence of
several areas ensures the necessary
dialogue between knowledge to fully
preserve the tangible and intangibleheritage and acquiring knowledge
about ancient healing processes and
innovative consciousness aspects involved in them.

Introduction: The use of ayahuasca
by people who: 1. practice yoga, and/
or 2. express through tantric art or
visionary art, (in relation with others who do not use ayahuasca) has
a positive influence in both the level
and intensity of health benefits from
yoga, and/or the level of inspiration
and joy in their art work, and vice versa: the practice of yoga and/or of expressing through tantric-visionary art
(in relation with other non indigenous
ayahuasca users) has a very positive
effect on how the practitioner will
experience ayahuasca, with more
chances for an easier acceptance of
ayahuasca in the body, an overall positive and joyful feeling about the session and a much better understanding of his/her bodily signals through
the session and areas who need care
in the physical, emotional or spiritual
level, and often very profound visions
and guidelines related with his/her
artwork. Methods: My own analysis of
the relation of the energies of yoga, visionary art and ayahuasca use, based
on my own experiences as well as on
the experiences of fellow artists-yogis-ayahuascueros who accompanied me in the Amazonian jungle and
in some holistic healing ceremonies
in UK, and the collective data from
a simple questionnaire that where
given to some of my students and

I recently spent 8 months drinking
ayahuasca, attending workshops
(designed to help integrate the content of the experiences) and assisting
Silvia Polivoy in Brazil with the facilitation of ceremonies. The teachings I
received seemed consistent and logical. Here I provide a summary: ayahuasca and other plants harbor ʻsacred molecules ready for sentient/
intelligent animal forms to discover when a certain level of wisdom/
knowledge/evolution has been attained; shamans are guardians of the
knowledge of such plants; Surrender
is the key to success with ayahuasca
which mirrors the correct approach
(trust in the higher self) to waking
life; cleasing the human instrument
both physically and psychologically will then be possible; ayahuasca
controls and constructs a unique
environment specifically designed
for each users needs; Personal lessons about waking reality and the
psychological imprint examination
process then ensue. In the same way,
physical reality is controlled by your
higher self/over soul. Follow feelings
and not logical thinking. The over
soul sends a signal which the brain
demodulates and projects out onto
the field of consciousness which collapses the wave function creating a
specific experience desired by the
higher self. The human imagination
can be used to birth new forms of intelligence. Symbiosis/co-operation

Introduction: Fertile areas for the
scientific study of ayahuasca have
opened up recently due to advances in neuroimaging, psychological
models and methodologies, and new
perspectives from the growing field
of mindfulness studies. Traditional
taboos and recommendations which
have guided indigenous ayahuasca
use for centuries are studied in detail
by anthropologists; but their effect
(or otherwise) have not been tested in the vast majority of biomedical
research projects. Why, for example, when many shamans consider
moon phase and menstrual cycle to
be important, have none of the neuroimaging and EEG studies to date
attempted to correlate these factors
with amplitude or site of action in
the brain, or standardized methodologies with respect to them? Why,
when sexual dietas and other dietas
are almost ubiquitous in the indigenous world, do psychological researchers not investigate whether
there is any therapeutic advantage
in observing dietas, or collect data
on sexual activity in the days before
ayahuasca ingestion? Methods: By
studying the scientific investigation
of novel and exotic therapies in the
19th century, and drawing parallels
with current lab and clinical practice,
we can begin to make sense of some
of the blind spots in today’s scientific
methods of inquiry. This presentation
considers the tools of analysis employed by doctors studying traditional Chinese herbalism in Australia, and
the framework of understanding with
which the members of the Royal Society investigated Mesmeric amputation in Europe. Conclusions: There
are taboos in the jungle, which may
or may not be mere superstitions,
and taboos in the academy around
legitimizing superstition. There are
also technical difficulties involved
in studying complex sets of factors.
sciousness in our system of reality is
now available. Zoe7 who wrote Into
the Void and Back from the Void assisted in my analysis during the initial
experiences. Silvia Polivoy guides my
spiritual analysis of self during insight
integration. Instrument cleansing is
her specialty. Her background in psychology has been invaluable during
this period.

Researchers might profit from giving
serious consideration to taboos and
limitations, both of the cultural matrix of the target of their studies, and
also of their own methods of investigation. We also might learn from traditional lore in devising therapies for
disorders such as PTSD and depression which clinical medicine treats
with limited success.

of ayahuasca on how a person interact with/ understands the practice
of yoga, and the practice of yoga can
affect both body and spirit on how to
receive ayahuasca and to ”absorb”
what ayahuasca has to offer. There
is influence of ayahuasca on tantra
(or visionary) artists, and the practice of such arts has influence on the
ayahuasca experience. There is noticeable difference of the level of effectiveness on our emotions between
artworks inspired by ayahuasca, and
artworks non inspired by ayahuasca,
done by the same artist and of the
same category.
Conclusions: The use of ayahuasca
combined with practicing yoga and
tantric art becomes a more profound
method for healing and opening of
the interior door.

People with manic depression are severely impacted -often driven to suicide- yet are amongst the most creative
thinkers. Psychiatric pharmaceutical
drugs usually prescribed for this condition may prevent the extremes of mood
swings, but notoriously numb creative
and spiritual consciousness. Creative
people often reject these drugs -preferring to keep their creative spirit,
even at the expense of periodic misery.
I will present relatively unknown empirical research into the fundamental
mechanism of mood swings, which is
demonstrated to be modulations in
the rate of phosphor-inositide cycling
within neurons. Although there is plenty of evidence supporting ayahuasca’s
efficacy for the treatment of unipolar
depression, very little is written about
ayahuasca for bipolar/manic depression. There is some concern that MAOIs in ayahuasca vine destabilize people
prone to mania, and some ceremony
facilitators disallow them from participating. In my personal experience, ayahuasca (taken in healing ceremonial
context) is a mood-stabilizing medicine
which alleviates depression without inducing mania. In contrast, harmala-alkaloid MAOI plants taken without DMT
induces mania. Therefore I believe that
DMT has a stabilizing influence on the
brain chemistry of mood swings. I offer
my personal history of life-threatening
and treatment-resistant “bipolar disorder type 2”, involving 17 psychiatric
pharmaceutical prescriptions with corresponding side-effects... followed by
a successful healing journey through
ayahuasca ceremonies. Given that
ayahuasca enhances creativity, I am
conducting quantitative and qualitative
research to determine whether ayahuasca ceremonies could be a more
appropriate treatment for creative
people with manic depression than currently-available psychiatric pharmaceuticals.

As the most recent vector for the distribution of ayahuasca on this planet,
human consciousness is the often
unstated third ingredient in the mixture that is ayahuasca. Drawing on
my recent book, Darwin’s Pharmacy (University of Washington Press,
2011) this talk will briefly explore the
strengths and weaknesses of he biochemical, cultural and evolutionary
explanations for the phenomenon
of ayahuasca experience in human
consciousness and its proliferation
across the planet in the 21st century.
While entheogenic researchers have
long found the reductionist model
of chemical structure and function
inadequate to the dynamism, contingency and variety of entheogenic
experience, no schematic framework
has emerged to robustly replace the
”set and setting” model of Leary et.
al. Pointing to the role of entheogenic
plants in human courtship and sexual
selection, Darwin’s Pharmacy offers
an evolutionary model for comprehending human consciousness as an
effect of plant evolution: consciousness as the differential gradient of
attention for selecting and diversifying plant genomes based on modeled
thermodynamic outcomes. Could
consciousness, and its alteration, be
well modeled as a biotechnological
prosthesis of a plant intelligence?
This talk will close with a gedankenexperiment that asks us to conceptualize ayahuasca as a plant intelligence exploring the space of its own
genome via human consciousness,
while human consciousness explores
the space of all possible thought
through its alliance with ayahuasca.
The therapeutic benefits of ayahuasca have gained significant attention
over the past decade. This has resulted in the development of centers
dedicated to ayahuasca-assisted
therapies and the emergent international expansion of ayahuasca at
large. This presentation will discuss
the therapeutic potential of interdisciplinary approaches that validate
the traditional indigenous context of
ayahuasca in combination with adjunct therapies that draw upon other
bodies of knowledge, within traditional, complementary, and alternative
medicine (TCAM). On a global level
there is a tremendous need for better
access to mental health services and
more efficacious treatments. With
this, there is a great opportunity to
draw upon the collective resources
of all TCAM systems and the latest
advancements of what truly defines
health and human potential. Drawing upon case studies of treatments
facilitated within an interdisciplinary
context at Posada Natura Retreat
Center in Costa Rica and also treatments facilitated within a traditional indigenous context in Sibundoy,
Colombia, this presentation will discuss considerations, challenges, and
promising areas for future research
and therapeutic exploration. Holistic healing approaches that include
ayahuasca and other interdisciplinary adjunct therapies represent a
larger movement towards a different
type of health-care service. This new
system embodies a more feminine
approach of healing that honors the
multidimensionality of our human
experience and connection to nature.
With the expansion of ayahuasca and
the emergence of ayahuasca healing
centers that use adjunct therapies,
there is a great need and an opportunity to understand the utility of these
services from multiple perspectives.

This thesis is an autoethnography
that provides a thick description,
analysis and reflection of my personal Multiple Sclerosis healing journey,
supported by a transpersonal modality based on an ancient shamanic
wisdom of the Amazon. Since Ayahuasca is a spiritual botanical mixture
that has been used for centuries by
indigenous peoples in the Amazonian
region for healing rituals and medicinal purposes, I chose to explore this
transpersonal therapeutic modality
as a means of supporting my healing through a facilitated process of
individuation. The transpersonal process supported a transcendence of
the mind and in connecting with my
spiritual nature as a means of healing
the mind-body connection of dis-ease
by moving closer towards my authentic Self. The transpersonal benefits
facilitated by Ayahuasca showed to
be a liberating process that allowed
me to heal and to be a more efficient
social worker as I experienced an increased awareness of the interconnectedness of the personal healing
process and that of humanity and
Mother Earth. The overall intent of
sharing my experience is particularly
aimed at inspiring and providing hope
to others living with the uncertainty
of this dis-ease within the normative
biomedical healthcare model, to realize that they too can reclaim their
voice, empower themselves and heal
by embarking on their personal healing journey.

The Vision Quest (VQ) is an experience and a possibility of community
life in connection with sacred plants.
Our ancestors taught women and
men who choose to walk carrying a
sacred plant in their altar, to learn
to fast, to abstain from eating and
drinking and to be in silence, and thus
find their own vision through direct
observation and listening. During
the VQ there are daily moments and
spaces for ceremonies with sacred
plants, Temazcals (sweat lodges)
and the arts acompanying these ancient traditions: cultivation, preparation and use of the plants; building
sacred geometry altars and learning
to sing healing chants. During their
VQ time, people up in the mountain
fast and keep silent while receiving
instructions for their own growth directly from the plants and the whole
of nature. People who stay at the
camp support the vision questers
and have an opportunity to receive
instructions from the leaders of the
tradition who accompany us during
the VQ. We have had more than 100
participants in the first two years
of VQ in Italy, families from all over
Europe heterogeneous in their lives,
dreams and occupations. The number of participants is increasing, testifying that people are finding what
they are looking for here in this place.
The Vision Quest design is what we
are taking care of and what we want
to describe. The VQ is one ceremony
lasting two weeks where people have
a life experience that could be reproduced, in its original design, all over
the world, providing health and wellbeing, also clarity on how to use our
grandmother Ayahuasca and all other sacred plants. Our aim is to create
a permanent community.

Aim: This presentation aims at highlighting the Ayahuasca phenomenon
by using a model that may capture the
variety of Ayahuasca uses in a meaningful way. The lack of ability of mainstream as well as specialized medical
culture in the Western World to comprehend the Ayahuasca phenomenon
seem to justify the need for a comprehensive model that includes, but
transcends, a purely biomedical and
materialistic understanding. Method:
A model is proposed that accounts
for four different, but interrelated
paradigmatic views on psychotropic
substances. The biomedical perspective is included as one perspective
among three others. The Ayahuasca
phenomenon within the framework
of this model will be discussed. The
concepts of ´set´ and ´setting´ are
used to denote how effects are moderated in different kinds of Ayahuasca use. Predictions: Firstly, it is predicted that the model may suggest
an integrated understanding that
transcends any isolated perspective.
The second prediction states that
the model may distinctively differentiate between different forms of
Ayahuasca use, weather they exhibit
ritualistic or non-ritualistic forms. It is
suggested that Ayahuasca use may
exhibit a different profile from other
psychedelics as well as from other
substances. Implications for future
research: The model may have social,
psychotherapeutic and legal implications. The model may provide a more
differentiated understanding of the

In the same period as the Conquista
started roughly 500 years ago almost all shamanic traditions in Europe were eradicated. Hardly any
old wisdom survived. When it did
survive it was in a diluted form. Pure
shamanic knowledge can nowadays
only be found in isolated areas, in the
far away corners of the earth. As an
indigenous medicine man recently
observed about Europe: “There is
no culture left here, the only thing
Europeans have is Mother Earth”.
Re-introducing shamanic knowledge
into our modern society is of vital importance to our survival as a species.
This will be a talk about ayahuasca
as a discipline, as a path in life. Ayahuasca as an Academy of Fear. Fear
is an effective survival technique.
Fear can also be a hindrance to live a
good life. How confronting fear helps
to become your true self. With a 15

While cannabis is currently spearheading a new course in addressing
drug policy worldwide, other psychoactive plants, such as ayahuasca,
have fallen prey to the intolerance
and repression promoted by the United Nations’ International Narcotics
Control Board (INCB). An alarming
increase in legal prosecution related
to its use and importation has been
observed in several countries. In
Spain, especially, the scope of legal
incidents shows that a true law fare
was initiated around 2010. While scientific research and anthropological
studies have contributed to a better
understanding of ayahuasca’s context of use and it’s psychological and
physiological effects, including its
risks and therapeutic potentials, unethical practices, romanticization, or
commercial opportunism has led too
often to adverse situations and harm.
Dealing sensitively and efficiently with

which are inter-related -is essential

society. This presentation shares the

use of Ayahuasca and other psychedelic compounds. While for the general public the use of Ayahuasca can
be the better understood as a therapeutical tool or as part of a religious
activity, from a more general point
of view it’s necessary to understand
that both therapeutical and religious
freedom are consequences of cognitive freedom and a full understanding
of its implications can’t be underestimated if we want to contribute to

CHARLOTTE WALSH, LLB, MPHIL
School of Law, University of
Leicester, England
This paper considers the somewhat
hazy legal status of ayahuasca in
England through a consideration of
relevant international provisions, domestic legislation and case law, drawing parallels with other psychedelic
substances. The central issue is that
whilst DMT is scheduled as a Class A
drug under the Misuse of Drugs Act
1971, the plants that are combined
to constitute ayahuasca are not. It
also explores whether prosecutions
for drinking ayahuasca could be
considered to be a breach of human
rights: namely, the rights to religious
freedom, to self-medicate, and to
freedom of thought, also known as
cognitive liberty. These rights are
ostensibly protected under the European Convention on Human Rights
through the Article 8 right to privacy
and the Article 9 right to freedom of
thought, conscience and religion.
LEGAL UNCERTAINTY:
AYAHUASCA IN

JONATHAN HOBBS
Graduate of Imperial College London, University College London
and Cambridge University
Introduction: The current legal situation of ayahuasca in the UK is almost
impenetrable, especially in light of
recent court cases and appeals. Unlike in other European countries such
as Spain, Switzerland and the Netherlands, its exact status is impossible to determine with any precision,
even with reference to existing case
law and legislation. Methods and Results: The research involves a close
study of both reported and unreported proceedings in the British courts
regarding ayahuasca and other plant
psychedelics. It includes the discussion of a variety of legal texts as well
as addition information gleaned from
personal communication with defendants, lawyers and other actors
in several relevant cases. Results: By
examining all these sources, I aim to
clarify why the legality of ayahuasca
is so difficult to pinpoint in the UK as
well as the reflexive implications of
this complexity on determining the
outcome of future cases. Conclusions and Possible Derived Lines of
Research:
Despite binding judgements from the
appellate courts, recent events mean
that the uncertainty is still no closer
to any meaningful resolution. This
paper identifies the most important
legal points in the current debate. In
this way, I am able to identify troubling trends in the strategies used in
plant psychedelic prosecutions, as
well as give a realistic summary of the
challenges to both ayahuasca users
and jurisprudence scholars.

de personas dolientes, que se encuentran enclavadas en la desdicha posmodernista, fue roto. Pacientes dependientes a sustancias altamente tóxicas
quedaron sin acceso a una posibilidad
de reconstrucción de su vida. Durante
el allanamiento policial hubo maltrato físico y psicológico sobre varios de
los presentes. Se quedaron 5 horas,
se llevaron una botella de Ayahuasca
y nadie fué detenido. A las 48hs de lo
acontecido estábamos en un centenar
de medios gráficos, radiales, televisivos y webs. La versión difundida de lo
sucedido fue completamente descontextuada, altamente amarillista y revista por una mirada policial, xenófoba y
altamente dañina. Nuestro desconcierto e inestabilidad en el momento
de lo sucedido hizo que busquemos
asesoramiento legal. En un primer
momento nos recomendaron no difundir ni defendernos en los medios.
Transcurrido un mes recibí la imputación de Suministro a título oneroso
de estupefacientes. La causa judicial
avanzó un poco al principio pero luego
quedo parada. Mi labor terapéutica en
el campo de las Plantas Maestras se ha
visto interrumpida hasta el día de hoy.
Actualmente me encuentro en la encrucijada de esperar varios años a que
la causa judicial se archive y apagar mi
labor o bien reactivarla con todo lo que
ello implica. Ambas situaciones tienen
riesgos e incertidumbres. Más para
unos y menos para otros. En el año
2013 estalló un escándalo mediático

EL CASO DE
LAS IGLESIAS
AYAHUASQUERAS
JAVIER ESTEBAN
Dr. Derecho- Máster en Psicoanálisis
La relación entre ebriedad, estados
modificados de consciencia y cultos
es tan antigua como la misma religión. El empleo eucarístico de algunas
sustancias ha sobrevivido en culturas
amerindias, dando lugar a fenómenos
de sincretismo religioso con las iglesias colonizadoras, que ahora retornan a sus respectivas metrópolis. La
existencia de estos cultos sincréticos
y su reaparición en Occidente plantea
cuestiones morales y legales universales que ya han sido resueltas en otros
ordenamientos. Estos mismos cultos
han recibido protección constitucional por parte de la Corte Suprema de
los Estados Unidos, país pionero en la
lucha contra las drogas. Otros países
como Brasil u Holanda han establecido
acuerdos que permiten a estas iglesias
realizar los sacramentos con ayahuasca. La petición de protección constitucional se está realizando en estos
momentos en Francia, Portugal y el
Reino Unido. La cuestión que nos convoca forma parte de un actual debate
global sobre la libertad de conciencia,
la libertad religiosa y la salud pública.
Por primera vez en España, desde la
aprobación de la Constitución de 1978,

ción de su liturgia. La causa de estos
impedimentos y prohibiciones reside
en el uso que estas iglesias hacen del
brebaje alucinógeno alegal llamado
ayahuasca, empleado como vehículo
de aproximación a la divinidad en sus
sacramentos. Estos hechos suponen
un verdadero reto para nuestro ordenamiento y para nuestras autoridades,
que reaccionan impidiendo el uso de
este preparado, invocando para ello la
necesidad de proteger la salud pública. En esta investigación trataremos
de aclarar si el derecho de libertad
religiosa y la libertad de consciencia
debe prevalecer sobre un posible riesgo para la salud de los participantes en
estos cultos, y si este riesgo puede ser
considerado, desde la hermenéutica
constitucional y el Derecho Penal, un
riesgo para el orden público.

HOW TO CONTINUE TO
DEFEAT GOVERNMENT
PERSECUTION
ROY S. HABER
J.D., Roy S. Haber PC Attorney at Law
In 2008, a federal district court in
the United States issued the first and
only permanent injunction ever in the
United States ordering the Attorney
General of the United States to cease
”prohibiting the Santo Daime from
importation, storage, distribution
and use of the Daime Tea for religious
ceremonies.” Roy Haber will discuss
his representing the Santo Daime
for 15 years and how he navigated
this case to victory. He is currently representing several of the more
prominent Peruvian Shamans and
American maestros in an attempt to
protect their ”churches” from government intrusion. Dennis Mckenna,
Luis Eduard Luna and others who are
present here are part of the team that
defeated the United States despite its
vast resources. The Ayahusca Conference 2014 Agenda reveals presentations by experts in ethnobotany, anthropology, pharmacology,
drug policy and psychiatry to name
a few. Haber will discuss how best to
use the existing science to prevail in
Court. The governments’ scientific
and drug policy presentations were
flawed. Why then is it not free in more
places. Briefly discuss the Inquisition
as the cause of its being illegal which
led to drug control laws and huge
agencies and institutions that spend
billions of dollars on the war on drugs.
We have cracked open the DEA’s illusory justifications for continuing the
myth that the Mother Plant is dangerous to public health. My job has been
to make this all very real to an Anglo
judge with myopic views on religion.
We have learned how to expose the
bad guys unreliable scientific opinions and emphasize the righteousness
of this cause.Will discuss the Religious
Freedom Restoration act that puts the
burden on the government to prove
that the tea is likely to cause public
health risks. Discuss how to use the
correct rhetoric when providing scientific opinions about the Mother plant.
Discuss acceptable risk. Risk is very
important to scientific human health
studies. Will focus on how experts
should discuss the absence of risk
data of any short of long term ill health
effects. Will discuss up to the minute
activities going on with the DEA and
where the agency seems to be placing its emphasis and current strategy.
There is a new legal paradigm that we
are developing which transmutes science, law, and religion into a weapon
for elevating the spiritual and human
condition on the planet.

she becomes the Shaman’s last apprentice, learns the ancient wisdom
of the powerful plant Ayahuasca,
reconnects to the natural flow of nature, and discovers the truth about
herself. This book contains ancient
wisdoms and messages of hope from
this sacred place, and this sacred

This book discusses how Amerindian
epistemology and ontology related
to certain indigenous shamanic rituals of the Amazon spread to Western societies, and how indigenous,
mestizo, and cosmopolitan cultures
have dialogued with and transformed
these forest traditions. The collection
also focuses on how shamanic rituals
have been spreading and developing
in post-traditional urban contexts
throughout the world. Special attention is given to ayahuasca, a psychoactive drink usually composed of two
plants, the vine Banisteriopsis caapi
and leaves of the Psychotria viridis bush. Ayahuasca use has spread
beyond its Amazonian origin and instigated a variety of legal and cultural responses in the countries it has
spread to. The chapters in this book
address some of the ways these responses have influenced ritual design
and performance in traditional and
non-traditional contexts. The book
analyzes how displaced indigenous
people and rubber tappers are engaged in creative reinvention of rituals, and how these rituals help build
ethnic alliances and cultural and political strategies for their marginalized
position. It also explores modernity’s
fascination with “tradition” and the
“other.” This phenomenon is directly
tied to important classic and contemporary issues in anthropology. One of
them is the elationship between the
expansion of ecotourism and ethnic
tourism, recent indigenous cultural
revivals, and the emergence of new
ethnic identities. Another focus of
this book is on trends in the commodification of indigenous cultures in
post-colonial contexts, and the combination of shamanism with a network of health and spiritually related
services. Finally, the book addresses
the topic of identity hybridization in
global societies. The previously unpublished ethnographies and analysis collected in these chapters will
add to the understanding of the role
of ritual in mediating the encounter
between indigenous traditions and
modern societies.

El proyecto “Plantar e Colher” esta
concebido por un pequeño grupo de
personas, asociadas por la misma necesidad y el mismo objetivo. Plantar
para más adelante recoger. El objetivo
es plantar, banisteriopsis caapi y psychotria viridis, las plantas que dan origen a la conocida bebida Ayahuasca.
Esta bebida, de origen sudamericano,
más concretamente, de la Amazonia,
es conocida mundialmente por su poder de apertura de la conciencia, de
curaciones y de experiencias enteogenas enriquecedoras, desde hace
8000 años. El proyecto nace de una
donación, hecha por parte de uno de
los integrantes del grupo. Un terreno
agroflorestal en el corazón de la “mata

el crecimiento de estas plantas. Así

nuestro animal interior para vivir una vida
más plena y acorde a lo que deseamos y
sentimos desde nuestro más profundo
ser. Mediante el reconocimiento y la integración de las emociones genuinas, te
proponemos un trabajo que invitará a la
entrega y a la renuncia del control, a un
dejarse fluir para liberarse de tensiones,
bloqueos emocionales, físicos y mentales que nos impiden disfrutar plenamente de los placeres de la vida, para llegar
así a un estado de placidez dejando atrás
el sufrimiento. Centrar nuestro ser en la
propia experiencia del aquí y ahora de
una forma activa a la vez que receptiva,
logra que la mente alcance otras estados de conciencia. El trabajo que se
propone es la renuncia al control de la
“pequeña mente” y es un proceso espiritual, en tanto la persona se abandona a
la espontaneidad y llega a ser ella misma.

Para realizar un esfuerzo en la dirección
de comprender el fenómeno de la imaginería generada por la ayahuasca, hay dos
factores clave: i) el imaginario del propio
sujeto, y ii) el campo que crea el propio
grupo que comparte la experiencia en
un espacio y tiempo determinados. En
ambos casos, la persona es objeto y sujeto a la vez de la experiencia y se trata de
factores clave que se deben gestionar al
dirigir una sesión de ayahuasca.
fiscalizada en la Lista I del Convenio de
Sustancias Psicotrópicas de 1971. Esta
situación de incertidumbre legal se ve
agravada por posibles malos usos de
la ayahuasca. Si bien numerosos trabajos científicos corroboran la seguridad
terapéutica y los beneficios para la salud de esta bebida, su uso inadecuado
puede provocar una alarma social que
lleve a las autoridades a prohibir su
utilización. Desde la Plantaforma consideramos que la mejor defensa de la
ayahuasca consiste en promover que
quienes trabajan con ella lo hagan de
una forma respetuosa, procurando el
bienestar de sus semejantes y no sirviéndose de ella para beneficio propio.
Así, en el año 2009 la Plantaforma, tras
nueves meses de trabajo, saca a la luz
su Código Ético, que es la piedra angular
de su actividad. Al mismo tiempo consideramos que la defensa de la ayahuasca
pasa por defender el derecho a usarla
amparándose en el derecho a la libertad
religiosa, y en el derecho de los pueblos
indígenas a practicar sus tradiciones allá
donde sus miembros se encuentren. El
ámbito de actuación de la Plantaforma
es el Estado Español, pero creemos necesario que la defensa del buen uso de
la ayahuasca, y la defensa de estos derechos fundamentales debe plantearse
igualmente a nivel europeo, por lo que
proponemos que se inicien los trabajos
para constituir una Plantaforma Europea
para la Defensa de la Ayahuasca.

visiones tienen correspondencia en varias culturas; otras, en cambio, hay que

AYA: Awakenings is a documentary
journey into the world and visions
of Amazonian shamanism, adapted
from the cult book ‘Aya: a Shamanic
Odyssey’ by Rak Razam. As Razam
sets out to document the booming
business of Amazonian shamanism
in the 21st century, he quickly finds
himself caught up in a culture clash
between the old world and the new.
Braving a gringo trail of the soul, he uncovers a movement of ‘spiritual tourists’ coming from the West for a direct
experience of the multi-dimensional
reality shamanism connects one to.

The Mirror of the Spirit’ primarily follows the life of an old shaman from
Puerto Maldonado, an accidental
tourist and a recovering drug addict
seeking healing. They are like tributaries of the same river converging
towards this ancient medicine for different personal reasons. In Pucallpa
we stay with the Shipibo-Conibo people at a community along the Ucayali River. And, in Iquitos, we are welcomed at an holistic healing center
mostly run and visited by foreigners.
Starting out as an anthropological investigation, this chronological quest
shows examples of mestizo, indigenous and western shamanic practices. It did not seek to document those
already experts on the subject, but to
give an unfiltered voice to others that
came along its observational path of
discovery; to better understand the
mysteries of plant medicine, the business behind fake healers and the cultural
mimetic relationship between Amazonian natives and spiritual tourists.

EL PODER ANCESTRAL

THE PATH OF THE SUN AYAHUASCA NATURE’S
GREATEST GIFT
Debido a que el Shuar ha sido un pueblo
eminentemente guerrero y además porque antiguamente tenían la costumbre
de hacer después de sus guerras, el rito
de la reducción de la cabeza de sus enemigos, conocido como Tsantsa a fin de
poder preservarla como trofeo de guerra; han sido generalmente conocidos
en forma despectiva como Jíbaros o salvajes; denominación que rechazan por
su contenido etnocéntrico y racista; por
ello reivindican su derecho a autodenominarse como Shuar que significa, gente, persona o gente verdadera. Entre las
fiestas que adoptaron de sus ancestros
y que aun practican en la mayoría de sus
comunidades shuar, podemos señalar la
Fiesta del Ayahuasca que por lo general
lo celebran en enero con la caminata a las
cascadas y montañas sagradas. En esta
fiesta el uwishin manipula fuerzas espirituales que intervienen en procesos de curación, amor, cacería y siembra. En la sociedad Shuar, el uwishin, es quien a la vez
de poseer importantes conocimientos del
mundo mítico espiritual, maneja las concepciones de salud-enfermedad. Entre los
Shuar existen dos tipos de shamanes: los
tsuakratin (que curan) y los wawekratin
(que causan daño o enfermedades).

Throughout millennia, human kind
has nurtured an animated relationship with the Cosmos, mediated
by shamanic practices worldwide.
Cosmos and Earth have slowly been
separated from us, objectified to give
room for progress to unfold. Now, as
science and technology achieve never imagined levels of sophistication,
they unexpectedly encounter their
shadows, as perspectives for times
to come seem to become increasingly pessimistic. Following the forgotten route of ancient wisdom that
has been guarded by descendents
of these traditions, combined with
the rigorous approach of scholars
and practicing scientists, Medicina is
bound to shatter deep-seated ideas
on health, illness and, ultimately, the
very meaning of life.

When a lonely young woman in London faces an ever growing loss of
identity, the only thing she can cling
onto are her melancholic devotion to
her snake and plants. Unfortunately
flora doesn’t talk back and her snake
is radiating a mysterious glare as
ever. Mysteriously her plant shows
her that there is enlightenment to be
found sipping through the cracks of
consciousness. She decides to see
how deep the rabbit hole goes and
aligns back with her true self.

Holotropic Breathwork is a technique developed by
Stanislav and Christina Grof that induces an altered state
of consciousness in which we can access deep psychological material such as personal biographical content, repressed trauma and memories, elements from perinatal
states and our birth process, as well as transpersonal and
mystical experiences. These experiences can catalyze
psychotherapeutic processes and facilitate healing.
La Respiración Holotrópica es una técnica creada por Stanislav Grof y su esposa Christina Grof, que induce un estado
alterado de conciencia que nos permite acceder a material
psicológico profundo, como contenidos de nuestra biografía personal, recuerdos traumáticos reprimidos, estados
perinatales, nuestro proceso de nacimiento y experiencias
transpersonales o místicas. Estas experiencias pueden catalizar procesos psicoterapéuticos y facilitar la sanación.
El acceso a este estado no ordinario de consciencia se consigue mediante el uso de la respiración acelerada, una selección particular de música evocativa y un contexto seguro
apoyado por facilitadores formados en la técnica. El dibujo
de mandalas y el compartir en grupo son elementos de integración importantes en el desarrollo del taller.
Unlike traditional shamanic rituals, Holotropic Breathwork was developed by Stanislav Grof relatively recently,
based on his knowledge and experience as a psychoanalyst and his extensive work with LSD is psychotherapy,
as well as being inspired by more ancestral methods from
spiritual and shamanic traditions.
A diferencia de los rituales tradicionales chamánicos, la
Respiración Holotrópica fue desarrollado por Grof recientemente, basándose en su conocimiento y experiencia como
psicoanalista, su trabajo extensivo con LSD en psicoterapia
y su inspiración proveniente de métodos ancestrales de tradiciones espirituales y chamánicas.
This Holotropic Breathwork Workshop is a great opportunity for people who are involved with, or have experience
with ayahuasca, to learn about this more occidental approach of working with non-ordinary states of consciousness with its own set of tools, structure and group dynamics. The session starts with a theoretical introduction and
personal and group preparatory work, followed by the
breathing session and finishes with the integration of the
experience. The workshop is a full day.
Este taller de Respiración Holotrópica es una oportunidad

ARTHUR STEIN, PH.D
Dr. Arthur Stein developed Comprehensive Family Therapy (D.A. Kirschner & S. Kirschner, Brunner/Mazel, NY,
1986), which takes on the family holistically, dealing with
rearing and marital transactions, as well as members individually. All members and problems of the functional
family are professionally engaged on a private practice
footing. Advisory work with public agencies led to breathtaking challenge of tackling family dysfunction regionally.
Dr. Stein developed Humanics, a transdisciplinary practice dealing with social districts holistically, every person,
family and institution counting, and elementally, with the
mentalities, human interactions and relations shaping the
institutions, civil life and culture. Dr. Stein closed an extensive private practice to prove how communities may be
problem-solved and quality of life effectively promoted.
Psychoactives, for example, Ayahuasca, can be astonishingly beneficial and radically transformative for motivated, prepared, and subjectively open seekers. However,
Ayahuasca is no panacea. No matter its soaring beauty,
emotional galvanization, extensive insights and striking benefits, programmatic self-psychotherapy, entirely on one’s
own, most often fails Ayahuasca’s (and other Psychoactives’) fullest potential — as is typically the case with psychoactives. Regarding not gaining full bounty of LSD, Leo Zeff
(The Secret Chief) reported, “People will come to me who
have already tripped…five hundred times on acid, others…
three, four hundred times…they would be good candidates
so I’d say, ‘Sure.’ Invariably these people have said, ‘I’ve never had an acid trip before in my life! This is the first time I’ve
really had an acid trip’ (Leo Zeff, The Secret Chief).”
WORKSHOPS
TALLERES
far from ordinary. Emotional growth is demanding and
rarely easy, each step forward being hard-won, generally. Into this fray, Ayahuasca oftentimes first presents to
uninitiated clinical workers as a miracle-like tool. (Think
physicians’ historic, first time viewing of fungal penicillin
slaying pneumonia, septicemia, diphtheria, syphilis, gonorrhea, meningitis, rheumatic fever, etc., all ravaging before the new agent.)
Relational psychotherapy naturally stakes out Ayahuasca
for its relevant powers (and sister Psychoactives, selectively, for theirs). What’s more, and conversely, Ayahuasca intrinsically supports communication and mental analysis. People commonly get together after a journey for
catharsis, exchanging experiences and views. Hence, the
two modalities patently, self-evidently go together positively, and professionally combining them is done universally. The combinatorial result can be strikingly exponential. Far from rare are savvy psychotherapy clients saying
a particular psychoactive experience has been personally
tantamount to years of standard treatment. The Secret
Chief again: “I’ve had many people…who’ve come to me
who have been in analysis for a long time. Some have
been in analysis four times a week for eight to ten years
continuously….However, there was always something
that they never could get to. They have taken a trip and in
one trip afterwards have said, ‘I got more out of that one
day’s experience than I did in my whole eight or ten years
or whatever of psychoanalysis.’”
This workshop dedicates to the psychotherapy and full
wellness-growth and empowerment of individuals, couples and families through mixed modality synthesis of
verbal and psychoactive processes. The aim is clinical
procedure that is synergistically efficient and effective.
The workshop is open only to accredited psychologists,
psychiatrists, social workers, and other vetted behavioral
service workers.
Likewise, verbal psychotherapy may catalyze far-reaching, even eye-popping results. But, such outcome is

Los psicoactivos, como por ejemplo la ayahuasca, pueden
ser altamente beneficiosos y radicalmente transformadores para aquellos buscadores receptivos, motivados y preparados. Sin embargo, la ayahuasca no es una panacea. No
importa cuánta sobrecogedora belleza, galvanización emocional o benéfica introspección profunda haya experimentado un individuo: si sólo ha hecho la autopsicoterapia, sin
la ayuda de un profesional, a menudo está desaprovechando el potencial completo que ofrece la ayahuasca. Como
suele ser el caso con los psicoactivos, en lo que se refiere
a no obtener la recompensa esperada del LSD, Leo Zeff (El
Líder Secreto) declaraba: “Vino gente a mi consulta que
ya había tenido... quinientos viajes de ácido, otros... tres o
cuatrocientas veces... ellos eran buenos candidatos así que
yo les dije, ‘Claro’. Invariablemente estas personas dijeron:
‘¡Nunca había tenido un viaje de ácido en mi vida! Esta es
la primera vez que realmente he tenido un viaje de ácido.’”
Este seminario de psicoterapia está dedicado al bienestar
y el crecimiento completos para el empoderamiento de las
personas, las parejas y las familias a través de una modalidad de síntesis mixta de los procesos verbales y psicoactivos. El objetivo es un procedimiento clínico que sea sinérgicamente eficaz. El seminario está abierto sólo a psicólogos
acreditados, psiquiatras y trabajadores sociales experimentados en el área del comportamiento.

ayahuasca por su relevante potencial (así como a sus hermanos psicoactivos, usados selectivamente). De hecho, la
ayahuasca es intrínsecamente compatible con la comunicación y el análisis mental. Es habitual que la gente se reúna después de un viaje para la catarsis y el intercambio de
experiencias y puntos de vista. Por lo tanto, se hace patente
que ambas modalidades se complementan de manera positiva y su uso profesional combinado está globalmente extendido. El resultado combinado puede ser llamativamente
exponencial. No son raros los clientes habituados a la psicoterapia que afirman que una experiencia psicoactiva concreta les
ha reportado el equivalente a años de tratamiento estándar. En
este sentido, El Líder Secreto, decía: “He tenido mucha gente...
que han venido a mí y se han estado analizando durante mucho tiempo, algunos hasta cuatro veces por semana durante
ocho o diez años de forma continua... Sin embargo, siempre
había algo que nunca podían alcanzar. Entonces han hecho un
solo viaje y tras él me han dicho después: ‘He obtenido más de
esta experiencia en un día de la que he logrado en ocho, diez
años o los que sea de psicoanálisis.’”

El Dr. Arthur Stein creador de la Terapia Familiar Comprensiva (D.A. Kirschner & S. Kirschner, Brunner/Mazel, NY,
1986), que concibe a la familia holísticamente al tratar tanto
las interrelaciones entre crianza y vida matrimonial como
a sus miembros individualmente. Su trabajo de consultor
para diferentes organismos públicos le han conducido al
reto formidable de integrar las disfunciones familiares en un
marco regional. Para ello, el Dr. Stein desarrolló Humanics,
una práctica interdisciplinar integradora que comprende el
aspecto social específico en el que cada persona, familia e
institución se desenvuelven, y en lo más elemental, con las
mentalidades, interacciones humanas y relaciones que modelan las instituciones, la vida civil y la cultura. El Dr. Stein ha
desarrollado una práctica privada extensiva para demostrar
cómo las familias y comunidades pueden solucionar sus
problemas y mejorar su calidad de vida de forma efectiva.

Asimismo, la psicoterapia verbal puede catalizar más allá de
los resultados visibles. Pero la afluencia de contenidos no es
lo más habitual, ya que generalmente demanda un esfuerzo
sostenido para alcanzar un crecimiento emocional. En esta
lucha, la ayahuasca suele presentarse a los trabajadores clínicos no iniciados como un herramienta milagrosa (piénsese en el histórico primer impacto que produjo entre los médicos la introducción de la penicilina fúngica para derrotar a
la neumonía, la septicemia, la difteria, la sífilis, la gonorrea, la
meningitis, la fiebre reumática, etc, que eran devastadoras
antes del mencionado antibiótico).

BEYOND PSYCHEDELIC DREAMS
AND WAR ON DRUGS:
PROBLEM-SOLVING AND POTENTIATING THE HUMAN INFRASTRUCTURE
ARTHUR STEIN, PH.D
Society shows the necessary astuteness and organizational savvy to go to the moon, build powerful computers, replace the human heart, among myriad astounding achievements. However, solving everyday, common
problems such as unemployment, welfare, family breakdown, slums, crime infested neighborhoods, carnage
of drugs, or failure of education and school dropout has
proven bewilderingly problematic.
Why is this the case? Are aforementioned challenges beyond human capability, or is it that people really don’t care,
or do care, but don’t try? Or, have hidden, nefarious economic and political power elites conspired successfully to
maintain toxic conditions for perverse private advantage?
Obviously, the countless sums spent over decades in
untold fruitless flailing show people seriously have cared,
and do care, and do want some dignified, minimal sustenance, health and opportunity for all children and adults.
How does one understand failure to solve persisting social dilemmas in view of society’s extraordinary capacity
to problem solve in other domains? Rather than going the
way of blaming economic or political cabals, one might
answer very differently, on other grounds.
The alternate, really quite simple explanation is that a universal existential minimal would be common doing today,
as well as solutions of other communal predicament, if
reigning experts did have knowledge of the theory, organization and practice needed to have achieved their aim.
Human nature rejects failure, in favor of success, abides
notice, rather than inconspicuousness. So, for example,
if in 1996, then, President Bill Clinton, or any from his political accessories, really knew how to “end welfare as we
know it,” Clinton naturally would have done so, earning
the personal recognition attendant his leadership and
paramount achievement.

Stemming from contribution of Comprehensive Family
Therapy (D.A. Kirschner, Bruner/Mazel, NY, 1986) and
senior clinical practice, Dr. Stein was in role of advising
public agencies jurisdictionally advocating and assisting
family life. Tackling family problems, regionally, forces
attention to profuse, serious and unmitigated family dysfunction. Equally salient are multiple, unsettling contextual, societal letdowns, alluded to above, which families,
try, as they may, often just cannot surmount. Out of this
troubling ado, Humanics, transdisciplinary practice approaching social districts both holistically and elementally, was born.
Humanics harnesses the universal urge for social progress. It approaches regional behavioral dysfunction holistically, at individual, family, institutional and community
levels. As state-of-the-art extension of current social organization and science, Humanics targets the full gradient of social functionality, from urban and rural districts
appalling disordered or backward to those affluent, aiming conspicuously at full health and wellness of individuals, families and communities.
Challenge of triumphant social welfare breaks logically into the following topics, the agenda of the
workshop:
- Philosophy and motivation for effective welfare strategy
- Structure of the social domain, including overlooked dimensions
- Scientifically determining societal optimality, and blueprinting community design
- How existing social organization can be powerfully enhanced for welfare and progress
- The scientific transdisciplinary process of problem-solving social regions: an approach simultaneously holistic
– every person, every family, every institution counting;
and elemental – dealing with the human relationships
and interactions that shape and constitute the focal region’s families, institutions and society
- Coping with governmental and institutional hierarchy
and the pyramidal structure of authority
- Methods and stages of financing
- Scientific measurement and accountability

Obviamente, las incontables sumas de dinero gastadas durante décadas en innumerables recursos infructuosos muestran que a día de hoy, continúan existiendo personas que
luchan por una vida digna, un sustento mínimo, salud u oportunidades para todos los niños y adultos. ¿Cómo se entiende
el fracaso persistente para resolver problemas sociales teniendo en cuenta la extraordinaria capacidad de la sociedad
para resolver problemas en otros ámbitos? En lugar de culpar a las élites económicas y políticas, como en el ejemplo del
fracaso social para lograr un sustento mínimo para todas las
personas, este autor respondería de manera diferente, con
otra base.
La explicación alternativa y realmente simple es que el mínimo
sustento sería posible de forma universal, así como la solución
de otras muchas situaciones que vivimos hoy, si los expertos
que gobiernan tuvieran un buen conocimiento sobre la teoría,
la organización y la práctica para lograr sus objetivos. La naturaleza humana rechaza el fracaso, en favor del éxito, buscando
aquello detectable en lugar de aquello que pasa inadvertido. Si,
por ejemplo, en 1996, el presidente Bill Clinton, o cualquiera de
sus compañeros de partido, hubieran sabido realmente como
instaurar el bienestar tal y como lo conocemos ahora, natural-
El reto de lograr el éxito en el bienestar social se desglosa
lógicamente en el seminario, cuyo programa incluye los siguientes temas:
- Filosofía y motivación para una estrategia de bienestar eficaz.
- Estructura del ámbito social, incluidas las dimensiones pasadas por alto.
- Optimización social científicamente determinante y plan de acción en el diseño comunitario.
- Cómo la organización social existente se puede reforzar poderosamente para el bienestar y el progreso.
- El proceso científico interdisciplinario para la resolución de
problemas en las áreas sociales: una aproximación holística
simultánea – cada persona, cada familia, cada institución
cuentan y son elementales – para tratar con las relaciones
humanas e interacciones que dan forma y constituyen sus familias, instituciones y la sociedad misma.
- Hacer frente a la jerarquía gubernamental e institucional y a
la estructura de autoridad piramidal.
- Métodos y etapas de la financiación.
- Medición científica y rendición de cuentas.

¿Por qué ocurre esto? Acaso son desafíos que van más allá de la
capacidad humana, o es que a la gente realmente no les importa, o se preocupan pero no los tratan? Es que, de forma oculta,
las nefastas élites del poder económico y político conspiran con
éxito para mantener este tipo de condiciones tóxicas de las que
ellos están sacando alguna perversa ventaja?
Humanics incorpora y pone de relieve la urgencia global de
un progreso social. Se aproxima al comportamiento disfuncional de forma holística y regional, a nivel individual, familiar,
institucional y comunitario. Como una extensión vanguardista de la actual organización social y científica, Humanics se
dirige al rango completo de funcionalidad social, desde los
distritos urbanos y rurales con terribles desórdenes hasta los
barrios ricos que aspiran ostensiblemente a la plena salud y al
bienestar de sus comunidades.

The archaic instruments in the musical journey of human
history have always created a connection to the roots of
our existence in the womb, as well as to those of the numerous cultures on this planet and humanity as a whole.
Music can provide a model for conscious awareness of
internal processes.
Los instrumentos arcaicos en el viaje sonoro crean una
conexión con las raíces de nuestra existencia en el vientre materno, pero también en las raíces de la humanidad
como globalidad (o conjunto). Esto nos permite un modelo
de conciencia a través de un Conocimiento Consciente del
Proceso Interno.
It is known that the experience of altered states of consciousness through music can lead to further exploration of the self
and can help find a way to dissolve the ego and the barriers of
the mind, releasing emotional and mental blockages.
Es sabido que la experiencia de los estados alterados de la
conciencia mediante la música pueden llevar a una mayor
exploración de uno mismo y pueden ayudar a encontrar la
manera de liberar el ego y disolver estados limitados de la
mente, evitando y resolviendo atascos mentales.
In this workshop we will work mainly on a practical level,
followed by discussion and integration, while also offering
a theoretical approach of the foundation of therapy with
archaic instruments. We will use the voice as a vibrational
tool and instrument and experience the vibration of the
instruments in the body.
This workshop is open to all kinds of people, musicians or
not, therapists, artists and above all people with an interest in the healing power of music and sound.
Bring your instruments and your desire to make music
with you!

This method is for everyone looking for personal development through the voice. For those who want to improve
their voice and communication, either for personal curiosity or professional reasons. Those who have or want to
start a personal improvement process, those who follow
an inner path, and people who just want to feel better with
themselves.
Thanks to the ‘Wilfart Method’, wich uses the voice as an
accurate proof of our respiratory, psychological and energetic behavior. Our Breath is crucial, there is no Voice
without Breath.
How: Going in search of our true voice through vocal, body
and breathing exercises, in a concrete and accurate way,
gaining access in an efficient and enduring way to the
center of gravity of our body, our belly-centre, balancing
the blocked energy in the high part of our body. This way,
we manage to release our tensions that prevent a free and
real expression, facilitating consciousness and self-confidence. Working individually with a supportive group,
which serves as a witness and invigorates the process.

“Todos tenemos una gran y bella voz, pero esta permanece
en un cuerpo que no ha sabido o no ha podido desarrollarse
en su total verticalidad, en la geometría armónica que nos
pertenece como a seres vivos.”
Un método al alcance de todos para la búsqueda y desarrollo personal a través de la voz. Para las personas que
quieran mejorar su voz y comunicación ya sea por inquietud
personal o por necesidad profesional. Los que tienen o quieren empezar un proceso de crecimiento personal, los que
siguen un camino interior, y los que sencillamente quieren
sentirse mejor consigo mismos.
Mediante: El ‘Método Wilfart’ que utiliza la voz como un testimonio preciso de nuestro comportamiento respiratorio,
psicológico y energético. El Aliento es esencial y no hay Voz
sin Aliento.
Cómo: Yendo a la búsqueda de nuestra verdadera voz mediante ejercicios vocales, corporales y respiratorios de forma concreta y precisa, accediendo de una manera eficaz y
perdurable al centro de gravedad de nuestro cuerpo, nuestro centro-vientre, haciendo vascular allí la energía bloqueada en la parte alta del cuerpo. De esta forma se consigue
liberar todas las tensiones que impiden una expresión libre y
real, facilitando a la persona una conciencia y una seguridad
propia. Trabajando individualmente en presencia de un grupo
que sirve de apoyo, de testimonio y dinamizace el proceso.

This 3km route (level 2) starts at the parking of the Es
vedra´s viewpoint, a beautiful rock formation next to the
south coast of Ibiza. We will walk 600 meters upwards
and we will start observing the island of Es Vedra and Es
Vedranell. Then we climb to the Pirate’s tower, where we
can enjoy the wonderful views. We continue uphill until we
reach the peak of Pirate to then begin to descend towards
the Spiral of consciousness. At this point we see the famous stone quarry of Sa Pedrera (Atlantis) on the side of
the see, towards which we start heading. Then we descend
600 meters to reaching sea level, where again we can enjoy the beautiful views, while we explain the work and processes of the Phoenicians extracting stone of the quarry.
Esta ruta (nivel 2) de 3 km comienza en el parking del mirador de Esvedra, una formación de rocas preciosa en la costa
