  1. Courticaapi. I am going to share my paradigm shift. When I first started brewing nearly 20 years ago, I was self conditioned into thinking that Ayahuasca comprising of the original ingredients was the pinnacle and if Psychotria was unavailable then substituting Acacia was a compromise, and not as "spiritual or beneficial" ....a poor second cousin. Now im aware that Acacia use predates Ayahausca by tens of thousands of years. That Acacia was used by many ancient civilisations and Indigenous cultures, and that indeed the Acacia IS the original tree of knowledge. Fifteen years ago, when using Australian Acacia alkaloids we thought we were vangards, exploring new territory in consciousness, when really we were going into a realm that has been explored by humans for millennia. As a healer this is much more beneficial. Instead of thinking I was reinventing the wheel in other dimensions, to facilitate healing and growth, I now know I can draw from an ancient linage, where consciousness has interacted since the dawn of man. Psychedelic authenticity and authority. Particularly here in Australia where it is becoming known that it was part of Aboriginal culture. The details are enclosed within initiated lore/law but fundamentally disclosed. Nowhere else on Earth has been primed by Ceremony as much as our great Continent, and there is a rich legacy of Acacia use that us Rainbow Gringos can hop on the coat tails of. It is not necessary to know the details of, if you acknowledge and tune in, you will "know"it. Spirits are paying attention. The Acacia Courtii has come off its lone mountain to say, "leave me and all my brother species in the wild alone. I am easy to cultivate, and I will give you all the magic and access to The Dreaming you desire". This forum has done marvelous work of creating more Courtii plants in cultivation than in the wild, and we see that the Courtii could grow in most Coastal suburban gardens in Australia. In addition the spirit is is showing its gratitude by being everything we require from a medicine plant. Consequently as this becomes more widespread, we need to start doing some clear distinction of description to label these different medicinal combinations. Calling Acacia brews Ayahausca is misleading, and needs to change. Mixing a MOAI is still a requirement, and Caapi is the most beneficial, so the fusion will still have an Amazon Frequency in its DNA. And Icaros and Shipibo patterns still respectfully relevant. But we can start to bring in other elements of art and music. And names. So there are the obvious ones Aussiewaska, Acaciahausca, Ayacacia. For me personally Ive had my epiphanies and upgrades with the Courtii and will now concentrate on it exclusively. So I have coined the word Courticaapi to describe my medicine. It has nice musical phonetics which work into vibration chants well. Using the Acacia title first symbolises that Acacia is equal if not more important than the ayahausca vine in the bigger global picture. But am happy to respect them both as equals. Its exciting times, there could be some official disclosures soon, which will make it easier for facilitators to discuss the rich history which these new medicinal combos sympathetically connect to. Australia has it all cranking !! Culture is a thing to study, respect, explore then re-dream as personal practice and self expression. I express myself thru my plants, their garden and its medicines, and my culture includes traditions they have manifested thru history. Here the fusion is represented with Didge and Traditional Chapaka. Courticaapi improvisation. IMG_0992.MOV

    Courticaapi

    Crikey Humbolt, I could probably write another essay to answer your inquiries. Years ago, the vine and mushrooms used to clash in my mind. They sorted it out, but the vine came up trumps. (separate essay) The vine has been waiting, honing its magic, till it could come to Australia and blend into new Super Medicines. It has taken awhile to acclimatize, the atmosphere, sunlight and vibrational energy are so different. Thru Changa mixes it has been exploring Acacia dreaming and tuning into this land that has been primed by tens of thousands of years of ceremony. In turn, the Acacia has had to incorporate The Great Amazon Mother into its dreaming, listen to each others spirit songs, preparing for a great New Dreaming. I have a psychic partnership with my vine. I access Gaia Consciousness thru it and it accesses Human Consciousness and Energetic Form thru me. I have always considered the vine No 1. So when in my heart I told her....." The Acacia is your equal" she said. " Der...what do you think im here for, we are going to take my work here on Earth to new levels." They get on just fine in my Central Nervous system, an inter racial marriage. The vine has always told the stories of the brews admixture plants, now with the Acacia, the original tree of knowledge, the vine has the richest Spirit Linage to evolve with. Including its history with many ancient civilisations. Culture will change with it, For example The Jungle Dieta. Often because Psychotria was not as abundant, and brews traditionally weak in DMT. The diet assisted people get as much out of the medicine. Acacia brews can be that strong, they dont require any other dietary assistance than healthy yeast free to give people a guaranteed breakthrough. This whole Brazillian style singing thing, well a good brew, people are lucky to scratch themselves let alone sing. The whole music thing needs to soothe right down to very ambient. Sure, Icaros like the one above can be used at the appropriate time, which is when the vine wants to use physical form to create healing vibrations. I also acknowledge this is all just my own Personal Dreaming, and I encourage others into deep relationships with their plants to develop their own Stories. Its an open book, and we need to step up and write great new stories, from an aspect of respect of both plants country and culture.

    Visitation by birds

    This is great stuff, not sure what it means, but you are very fortunate. Our property at Yengo is a bird sanctuary. We love it. Its spooky, in 4 years we have never seen a mammal. There are wallabies and wombats on everyone else's farms. But just birds, from Powerful Owls to our favorites, the Blue Fairy Wren at our place. When running retreats, I can get everyone into the moment, by tuning in to the birdsong. Just keep your avian focus, and see where it flows. Oh I cant help but tell you where it will lead..........to happiness !!

    The backyard.

    I think Im way overdue for my garden pics post. It was annual......the way the years are flying it's becoming tri annual. Im going well, retired, all fixed (new hip and knee) and have a beautiful farm to keep me busy. As well as an "aya B@B" to keep me on my toes. Its such a shame we cant talk openly about our medicine work. So many secrets. For me its evolving exponentially. Just when you think you may become complacent, you get a smashing epiphany and go up another level. For me The Acacia is really stepping out of the shadowy past and onto the throne of Teacher King. It is paying attention. And coming to the fore. The Tree of Knowledge will take its rightful place. Brotherhood is always strong (yes our couple of sistas too) and life would be much the poorer without you folks. Cheers, The Hawk. Horus.

    Jeez, thats a thorough and fancy post. Have to work out how to post pics like that one day. Thanks for the effort and sharing.

    When I die

    Yeah, took a day to upload, but its not playing propa. oh well, those spirits are still a bit camera shy. I recently had my hip joint sawed off, and its buried under my vine. So my DNA is in my ayahausca !! Along with all my old dogs. The vine is a complete carnivore, it devours bodies, something that doesent get discussed. Maybe a new thread...."what dead things have you fed your vine".

    When I die

    I collect skulls, so I wouldnt want mine wasted on a cremation. I will be buried up the farm so my skull can join my collection. Hopefully my yet to be conceived grandson will be a powerful shaman ,called in from the spirit world by my vine, and he will have the the balls to dig me up. Here is a private (not to be shared video) of me discussing Tibetan bone culture. skull video.mp4

    Hey Halcyon, Your beautiful prize has arrived and will be potted up with the best soil mix. Thanks for the contest, and the out of pocket expense of postage. Very communal minded stuff. Cheers, Horus.

    Introducing: "SAINT PAUL"

    After this "warm up" there needs to be new thread.......The Adventures of Noobie McSWIMmington . As there are still tales of the Muskroooms and Choonga, And the Great Adventure to Mullupmoonby. All this could give the Wizards cause to Summon Noobie to perform more deeds in different dimensions, in order to provide more tales ,Tall but True Fictitious Facts.
  11. Hey Glaukus, yeah Justice is just crackers. Though I try not to buy into the fear of BB looking over my shoulder. Poor old Dr Pot is in Cessnock jail till a November hearing. He should be getting awards, but instead he is getting time. Being a healer is Criminal behavior. Australia enforces that plant based natural medicines are a crime. So we can be in fear of getting healing too. https://www.churchofubuntu.org/dr-andrew-katelaris-update/
  12. The intent is to do deep healing work and integrate with nature, how do you plead ? Guilty as charged your honor. As a healer Ive been made to operate as an outlaw for years. But Judge, for there to be a crime there must be a victim, my actions have only created wellness in the world. There are only positive testimonies of my actions. Let Justice be done ! Lock him up and destroy his garden! Now the world is a better place. (hypothetical courtroom scenario )

    Introducing: "SAINT PAUL"

    Glad I was in the graveyard to welcome Noobie Mcswimmington into the Secret Plant Society. Well written account, and I will be happy if the wizards apprentice beats me to the prize. So makes the point that the most beneficial medicines and healing modalities are criminal acts. To be a healer in our society you need to be an outlaw.

    Introducing: "SAINT PAUL"

    Hey Hal, congrats on your stats. Thats a beaut Cactus, and I really want a cut, so here is a tale for you. If all you folks who were there vote, Im a shoe in for second. A couple of years ago I hosted a SAB camp on my property, I wanted to make the event special and memorable, so I asked everybody to send me their best cactus cut for a communal medicine. Beautiful pieces of cactus started arriving thru the mail. Each one with its own story, how it was gifted or traded. "swapped a bag of changa for this beauty" etc It was wonderful to work with each piece, notice the differences as they gave up their medicine. Each piece grown proudly with love, from a dozen medicine gardens. Its what we are about, to take things to the next level, everything an opportunity to excel, to showcase all the attributes and enchantments of our plants. What better way to bond the fellowship of our plant family, than to share a medicine that represents all the love everyone has put into their cactus. Soon afterwards a booming thunderstorm shook our little valley, the ancestor spirits who were duly respected and invited to join, us gave us a show and shower, renewal and reset, and the sun shone again creating steaming rocks and glistening leaves..........and big grins on all my SAB bros and sisters. Muchus Gratis Grandfather. All the tips I rooted and planted on the property, a garden that represents that event, my friends and their gardens. And in a couple of years we can regather and I can recreate that medicine.............. which was particularly good.
  15. Yes votes all round for me. I never miss a gathering. The forum is a bit static these days, as most stuff has been discussed. And FB has taken over most of the social discussion. But the network has evolved to be a bit more social, where we can share things, and talk openly about our experiences that we are still apprehensive about talking about online. Great staunch friends on here to meet. Lets get behind this and celebrate how good life is when we have all the magic plants in our gardens.
  16. To answer your question specifically, yes. I had no intention of giving up meat and grog...... my favorite meal is Malaysian Beef Rendang and I was a whisky connoisseur, I just love everything about it. But, after my 2nd deep Iboga session, the plant made me give them both up. Total dissociation from any desire for either. 4 and a half years ago. The fundamental reason is high vibration. The plant wants me to maintain the vibration of the medicine, and meat and grog are too low vibration. Besides better all around good health, (which is what you want from a good medicine). I get way more value from my other medicines, a cleaner system for them to work with. So, be careful with Iboga, you might just get exactly what you need. Not necessarily what you want.
  17. All living things are conscious, aware of their environment, but all except us live in the moment, fish have a notorious lack of memory but are still conscious beings. My dogs "know" lots of stuff, but they don't know that they know it. So I dont see what memory has to do with it. We are possibly continuous consciousness from previous lives, that our current ego denies us memory access to. Anyhow all that is part of the unknowable that we must accept . Memory is not important, a distraction actually. To live a fulfilled magical life, enriched and expanded with the medicines from the plants, and capable of all our possible potential, its best to be open to the concept that everything seen and unseen has an energy vibration that is connected. Not an accident, but a plan to create the conditions for life. Dose enough cactus and you will become aware that there is more than just light and heat radiating from the sun. There is information of all sorts, forces that created cell division and shaped ALL life. The plan of life is encoded into starlight, and shines thru the known universe. Chicken and egg stuff, but if this vibrational energy- light, is evolving planets to produce beings like us, conscious and self aware, then consciousness may be the fundamental essence of everything. And Starlight its pure form. Memory is a distraction to awareness. When we want to experience beyond/ more than our self, we tune into the present moment. When we are working with the plants, we experience fields of information beyond memory. Plants are conscious, but have no memory. The conscious universe is so huge, with so much happening in each milli-moment ,that the past and the memory of it, would need a separate universe for each moment to retain. So there is just the great eternal conscious moment in all its forms. Not to be known, but experienced, by being present. The great gift of being part of all its joys and horrors. The nature of the universe is cold, emotionless and indifferent, everything constantly killing something for its sustenance. Everything having cycles of destruction. Just cause its heartless, doesn't mean its not conscious. Just as everything in the material world has a particular vibration, ie the particles in diamond vibrating faster than those in sandstone. We are created to emit the vibrations that the physical world cannot. It is our job to raise the spectrum of vibration, by creating the higher frequencies of love and compassion. This Earth is not fulfilling that, due to the distractions of greed based consumerism, a very "not conscious" paradigm. "Loving" a diamond necklace, is not the same vibration as loving a stranger. And even if you disagree with my thoughts, you would have to agree that more selfless love would make the Universe a more conscious place. Oh, I digress, sorry, its too cold to get out of bed.

    Is there any use for dried Caapi leaf ?

    The dried leaf can be smoked at any age. With most sacred plants, the tradition is to pick the leaves in pairs. I feel it is a way that makes you more mindful about what you are doing. The newer growth is good. Dry them till they are just crispy. Inactive by themselves, but will work as a MOAI and synergies well with cannabis, for a super medicinal smoke.

    Post your track of the day

    Ayahuasca is the sixth album by drone rock band Pelt. It was released on June 12, 2001

    Is there any use for dried Caapi leaf ?

    Yes, it is good medicine for your plants and garden too, put it in the compost. The dried leaves smoked will potentiate things.......shrooms in particular. And thats a great way to start the next level relationship with the plant, when you do brew......you will already be friends.
  21. Yeah sure, share away. @Freakazoid has a nice one of everybody leaving on the mountain climb.
  22. Lovely camp, thanks Torsten for a lot of effort and expense. Hillbilly feeding folks from thin air is always biblical, and worth the 12hr drive to experience, seriously thanks for the sustenance. I got wonderfully high on the saturday, here are some pics to prove it. I love that my SAB mates are so staunch, and never miss an opportunity to connect.
  23. Horus

    I need suggestions for a memorial tree

    Does that mean you are coming to the camp, or are you having your own ceremony and planting on Hillbilly hill .
  24. 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.

    Conflicting opinions on ayahuasca

    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.
