  1. 3 tickets bought, Im coming with non forum plant buddies. Got the leave pass from the missus. Having a mini road trip, making a meal out of the event. Cheers.
  2. I run an "aya B@B" your welcome to hop on the queue and book in.PM for details. Im not big on rue, it "feels" like a poison to me. And has no heart or nurture, no story or dialogue. Its alright for potentiating shrooms.
  3. Cheers, no Ive never felt the call for mapacho. If im smudging a big group, I use Acacia. I was "instructed" to get a traditional Chapaka and was shown a vibrational cleansing using Aqua de flora and throat singing vibration. A fragrant fanning percussive droning with a unique beat and melody for every person, depending on their energetic needs, channeled thru the vine. With bigger groups, usually with cactus, I work with a partner who has trained with a Cactus shaman and she uses Mapacho when available. She is bringing the Shaman over in spring, so I get to hang with a Cactus Superman who doses every day. My first Shaman.
  4. No worries Cubism, Everybody is still stuck on who to drink with and where. Shackled by tradition and context. But there are whole new "next level" practices that we can be guided to by this plant. There could be no limits once we bust thru anchoring paradigms. People are focused on the human factors, and we dont give this plant the credit deserves. I have plant consciousness access thru it and it has human consciousness access thru me. And we are a team, like Batman and Robin, awakening folks. It never gives me challenging clients, it never wigs out people or gives me a handful of problems. Because everybody is nurtured commensurate with how I have nurtured the vine. Simples. Ha, Im being interviewed under the vine for a documentary this week, so yeah, I have been collecting my thoughts to be as articulate as possible. Thanks for the feedback, means Im on the right track to explain non-traditional use and next level value adding.
  5. When I first heard about aya in 2000, I hopped online and bought a bunch of ingredients from a supplier in Britain, and had my first journeys alone in the garden. They were powerful and great. I was also lucky enough to meet the "right guy" back then, and got a vine and all our other favorite plants. Whilst my vine was maturing, I was going thru my shroom stage. But would smoke vine leaf, the shrooms and vine would activate each other, and I could start my relationship with it. After 8 years I started making my own brews, it is a teacher plant, and those with patience, will find the instruction manual encoded within the medicine. After 10 years, I heard of people doing Ceremony in Australia, I had sorted out all my transpersonal stuff years ago and needed to pay for a brew like a "hole in the head". But one mob had a famed acupuncturist /healer as a regular, and I went to that first circle mainly to snag a dry needle torture session from him. They seen how experienced I was and invited me to be on crew. And I worked with the public, up to 20 at a time, from all over the world, many experienced from the amazon. After 5 years I witnessed most everything that can happen.Possessions and the like. They used imported amazon brew, and I would smoke my vine, so it would get all the latest plant goss and updates from the Amazon. (end of pre-amble) People go on about dialogue and relationship, getting messages from the vine. If they were not so self absorbed and self centered, and listened to what the vine needed, they would know this. These plants are like all the rest, they have one agenda, to be propagated.(in the ground and in peoples hearts) Plants have flowers and fruits, to appeal to insects and birds, to propagate them. Plants have food and medicinal properties to appeal to humans, to propagate them. To ensure they wont go extinct. The most successful plant is Cannabis. Its appeal has seen it spread to every part of the world, and genetically improved etc. It will only go extinct in a global catastrophe. The vine was in the jungle going, "what the fuck is all this logging?, whats with all this mining?, why are the shamans harvesting more for all these new big Ceremonies?, who are these people from all over the world? Well they look like my ticket to safety". And the vine left the jungle to be propagated around the world, minimizing its extinction possibility. So anybody who doesn't grow a vine, is missing the plants needs. Grow an Orange tree, and you will be rewarded with an annual harvest of fresh fruit. Grow a vine and you will be rewarded with "magical" abilities, and the latest upgrades of vibrational frequencies. The nurture you put into your vine will pay you back many fold and in inter-dimensional ways. Take it from my experience that serving your own brew, as compared to a sourced brew, even if its a grouse amazon concoction with chaliponga and all, is chalk and cheese. So, Im glad Ive never been to the Amazon (im sure its quite dandy) or even met a proper shaman. I dont want all the distraction of Cultural Context. Lots of it smoke and mirrors showmanship. The least interference between you and the medicine, often the better. At the end of the day, it is just your Central nervous system and cerebral cortex with the plants. Safety is the main thing, and when facilitating I draw more from a background in OHS, QA and Manual Handling Trainer than feathers and crystals. Big circles are a new tradition,to cater for the demand, but they also encourage commerce and the greed that goes with it. Most of the time they are a psychic soup of clutter. When they go off the rails, yes they are total trainwrecks. Here and the Amazon. (i decided to venture out and pay for my first circle in years a few weeks ago, and it crashed) Traditionally a villager and the shaman would work one on one, which ironically is my current method. All I can report is I have well traveled folks from all over the world, who have drank with all the shaman and a night with me actually under the vine ranks as special and sometimes more beneficial than other their more traditional experiences. This is something to think about. The Shamans vine is hidden in the jungle, its not his...the jungle nurtures it. You dont see it or touch it. This is a new thing. You can have your own vine, feed it with your DNA, bury your dogs under it, sprinkle you Mums ashes on it, nurture it, grow potentiated shrooms under it, or any value adding ritual. Its like planting a Genie.....(that takes 10 years to come out of the bottle), that can train you in magic. To show us their appeal these entheogenic plants need to get inside people. So the gardener, once trained by the plant, and both plant and gardener have complete faith and trust in each others powers and talents. The gardener has a duty to propagate" the spirit" of the plant into people. To plant that esoteric seed. And safe set and setting is the ground to plant that spirit seed. And any enhancements and healings are the fertaliser to make it grow. Anyhow, what am I trying to say..... You can always consider taking your medicine with a gardener as an option to shaman. And that's my reasonably informed opinion on Ayahausca. And having said that, Ive recommended a few folks go to "the temple of light" (as an anthropologist friend wrote her thesis on them) And they do an excellent job, and have plants you can see and touch.
  6. Timing and venue sound great. Im ready for a road trip. April........ it will be a moral though that as soon as we head up the coast, the conditions will become perfect for Subs up i the mountains. oh well, community is more important.
  7. Ok, I have been umming about this, but my next operation has moved forward to this Fri, so I should be ok. Ive been thinking that its awhile since I hosted on the Coast, and its also awhile since we have had a social allnighter. The date would be Sat night 17th Feb, that is close to both Hillbilly and my birthdays. And I want to celebrate the completion of my surgerys, and start of being a new man. Big Col 2.0 I want to do a Mexican theme party, my backyard already has the decor, skulls, mexican food, cactus shots, etc etc So, what is the interest ? Lets do details as usual on PM. Sorry no newbies.
  8. So stupid, Cocaine is the easiest drug to taste test, unless this stuff causes numbness as well. What if it had of been an RC. They still would have dosed 500% too much, and anyone who has ever been foolish enough to snort an RC, will think twice before snorting anything, thats for sure.
  9. This is how far you can take things with Caapi cross sections. Not my Strat, but this guy takes custom orders. So, in theory, you can harvest some vine, make a brew and bung it in the freezer. Send this guy enough vine to do a guitar, which he sends back to you. Then you can drink your brew and play the strat, vibrating the vine internally and externally in a medicinal loop. Next level drinking !! A great plan. Vine sections, chacruna grout, 24 carot gold fittings.
  10. Nice pipe Toast, yeah Huan is a lovely bloke with an amazing garden of rare treats. I recently got an aya serving cup that I love thru old mate Flux. Vine sections with chacruna grout, around a Mahogany cup. Just the right size, for a nice strong brew.
  11. Going great. Still haven't watered yet, maybe its time. Got a nice flower. I think you have made a winner with that stuff. I just wish I had more rare gems to pot up with it..
  12. People dont realize coffees effect till they try to give it up. We always tell people not to drink it when coming to circle. That causes more problems than we were trying to avoid. As everybody has a bloody withdrawal headache for the session. ........exactly what we were trying to avoid. And it effects how much they can dose and "submit" to the journey. Yes the vine will potentiate the coffee, its a fine line to reduce your intake and avoid the withdrawal headache.
  13. A bit of vine never hurt anyone. You have chosen the right medicine to have at the center of a plan to bring about some positive changes in your life. Yes its chemistry may improve the symptoms of depression, I hope they will. But its a vibrational medicine, allow it to change your vibration to align with the new pathways you desire. Look for signways to the path, generally hiding in plain sight, in everyday life, allow the vine to illuminate them. You will be rewarded by "paying attention",not only to how you are physically feeling, but to opportunities to "join the dots". You have commenced an "act of will" and stated publicly your intention. You need to see this thru now to show the vine you seriously require its help. Stopping will turn the process into a procrastination, and have the opposite effect, making plans impotent. giving the energy working against your interests power. Magic 101 basically, but worth a mention, when working with a magic potion. You have good friends, and are part of a great community. You have wisely chosen the best hobby in gardening, and have great skills. Life can be anything you want, leave the old story, and step into a new one. There are plenty of great chapters to write. Best regards brother.
  14. Was only a matter of time I suppose,before somebody made an ayahuasca Stratocaster. Despite some people thinking it disrespectful to play really psychedelic electronic music during a session, I find my vine loves to have a play on a Strat when its in me. And the improvisations are so interesting. So this is just natural evolution of "stuff". Made with Ayahuasca vine, Ayahuasca and chacruna leaf grout complete with 24k gold fittings. On the Christmas wish list.
