Kirsten Smith: I Wasn’t There For Work
Kirsten Smith is a registered Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine with a private practice in downtown Toronto. Her professional curiosity about the shamanic use of plant medicines, and ayahuasca in particular, led her to embark on her journey for this film.
“It wasn’t until half way through it that I realized, with incredible certainty, like a lightning-bolt, that I had almost missed the point entirely which was that I wasn’t there for work,” says Kirstie.
“I mean the true purpose in terms of why I was there had nothing to do with any of those things. It was only for me.”
