Talking Yagé, Ayahuasca, Spirits and Ecology | Jonathon Miller Weisberger
Ethnobotanist, ecologist, author and teacher Jonathon Miller Weisberger joins us this week.
We talk about growing up in Ecuador, living among various Amazonian nations, ecology, eco-spirituality, environmental activism and the difference between ayahuasca and yagé -among many, many other topics (including being dispatched by Terence McKenna to buy a paddleboat).
This is an amazing and lengthy chat which I have wanted to have since reading Jonathon's book, Rainforest Medicine, a few years ago. And we are having the conversation now because Jonathon is convening three upcoming series of yagé ceremonies at his amazing facility in Costa Rice known as Ocean Forest Ecolodge in April, May and June 2021. I mention it at the opening of the audio-only version of the show and then we discuss it again toward the end of the episode in both the audio and video versions.
