The ancient Zorastrian texts cite cases of the high priests ingesting Soma or Homa and experiencing other portals of reality, including what they termed Heaven and Hell. What is Soma or Homa? Cara will be exploring these topics with David tonight. As many of you know we have been talking about plant medicine, mostly Ayahuasca, which is a combination of plants from the rain forests of Peru. Ayahuasca is a combination of two plants, the leaf of one plant and the vine of another plant together that activates di methyl triptamine, an hallucinogen, often creating powerful spiritual revelation and intense visuals, euphoria, even what many will argue are true hallucinations or rather perceived extensions of reality. Cara is hoping to learn together with listeners about our origins and our place in the universe via plant medicine. Is Ayahuasca a deceiver or a brilliant illuminator? Is it a window into the unconscious or another dimension? Is plant medicine a gift from the planet and our birthright to explore? Were the origins of most religious and spiritual revelation brought about or enhanced by plant medicines? What are the religions that use it in ceremony? Are the leaders of various religions and spiritual practice adept in the use of plant medicine and what do the sacred texts of various religions tell us of the use of plant medicine?
