Opening the Portals of Heaven

Launching soon “Opening the Portals of Heaven: Brazilian Ayahuasca Music” by Beatriz Caiuby Labate and Gustavo Pacheco.


Ayahuasca Ritual and Religion in Brazil

“Ayahuasca Ritual and Religion in Brazil” is a new book from Beatriz (Bia) Caiuby Labate and Edward MacRae.

Author and journalist, Noah Richler, writes about his experience with ayahuasca in this week’s print edition of Maclean’s Magazine. Richler says it was “Vine of the Soul” director, Richard Meech, who first brought the drug to his attention.

Noah Richler tries out the South American drug that’s ‘like 30 years of psychoanalysis in one night’

Here’s a Soundcloud track from Memoske called “Ayahuasca Trip”. A nice bookend to Richard’s interview with CFSI FM Radio.
