Episode 18: Peru, Ayahuasca and the Daniel Cleland Experience

Hallucinogens and plant medicines are experiencing a renaissance, not so much for recreational use as much as for their unique healing abilities. Daniel Cleland takes you deep into the Amazon and shares what it’s like to drink ayahuasca, the role of the shaman, and his life in Peru and South America. (Length: 52 min)
