Very well done! There are many ayahuasca paths and not all journeys are sensational. I have not experienced this particular ritual line but, in essence, everything that is presented rings true within the context of my own spiritual journey. Ayahuasca is not magic; it is a burst of awareness that must be followed with a lot of hard work to create a different self and a different world. This later work -- to make the extraordinary into the ordinary -- is the best work that I know.
