Colin Miller: Acceptance
Colin Miller is a successful physiotherapist who operates his own sports clinic in Vancouver. He attended local ayahuasca ceremonies with Ronin Niwe for about a year before going to Peru to do deeper psychological work with the sacred medicine.
When the film team meets up with him he explains that he has been having marriage problems and he’s seeking to understand his own shortcomings. His wife, Nina, in Vancouver, suggests that Colin is unable to process in a meaningful way the insights of his encounters with ayahuasca — that he confuses the temporary feeling of well being with a permanent change in his behavior. Clearly, something isn’t working well between them.
“When I came here I knew I wanted to go a little deeper,” says Colin. “And for me the one word that came up was acceptance.”
“Acceptance of myself, acceptance of my past, and acceptance of my wife — was probably the number one thing. And to her that was the big blockage in our relationship.”
