Ayahuasca rituals can be profoundly beneficial – if they’re done properly

These experiences have to be respected but they are also being commercialised …  [we] have advised a serious approach and a respectful acknowledgment of potential danger.

In the west, ayahuasca can be portrayed as a shortcut to enlightenment, a product you can buy that will make you deep, or an “extreme” tourist experience. It’s become increasingly popular among tech millionaires who are, in the words of one report, looking to “find shortcuts to success in the ultra-competitive tech scene”. It seems unlikely ayahuasca was put on this Earth to help Bay Area tech bros crush the opposition. What it can do, if approached respectfully and openly, is potentially much more profound.
