Guest speaker: Terence McKenna
Today we pick up on the third section of a Terence McKenna workshop that was held in December of 1989. An interesting feature of this session is a report that Terence asked one of his friends to give about the state of ayahuasca use in Amazonian Peru. As one of the earliest accounts of what a Westerner will encounter when searching for an ayahuasca experience, we get to hear what it was like in the jungle before the plague of ayahuasca tourism took hold. One of the interesting ways in which he describes an ayahuasca vision is this it is a manifestation of one’s own intuition. We also get to hear Terence describe what he calls “tingling-lip ayahuasca”.
[NOTE: The following quotations are by Terence McKenna.]
“If you take tingling-lip ayahuasca then you are one macho hombre.”
“I don’t like the drugs that absolutely destroy the witness. I think the witness is important.”
