Ayahuasca: A documentary about an ancient cultural…

Synopsis

Ayahuasca, this preparation originating from South America and used in religious ceremonies, spiritual and therapeutic rites, has today become a worldwide phenomenon. Djane, the presenter, will be introduced to a rite of Ayahuasca in order to unmask what lies behind this preparation. A true spiritual and therapeutic tool or a new drug?

A doctor, a biologist and several individuals who have already taken Ayahuasca will enable us to answer this question but also to learn more about our behaviour towards these phenomena.

Background

Ayahuasca comes from the eastern Amazon and has been used in religious and spiritual rites by shamans for a very long time. It is a sacred tool that was only used to either open communication with nature, or when a person was suffering from a spiritual disorder, to reveal the evil through Ayahuasca and then heal it.

Thus, it should be understood here that the plant is considered very powerful and therefore that it is now placed in society as a fashionable phenomenon, a new way of escaping spiritually or of experiencing a new trip represents an attack on the function and primary role of this ancestral cultural practice.
