In 2009, while in Marbella, Spain an inner voice told me to go!

I asked, ‘Where?’ and the inner voice answered, ‘Madre de Dios!’

Madre de Dios is a region in southeastern Peru, bordering Brazil and Bolivia.

The name of the region is derived from the Madre de Dios River, ultimately a tributary of the Amazon, and named by ethnic Spanish colonists. It is a very common Spanish language designation for the Virgin Mary, literally meaning Mother of God.

I asked, ‘When?’ and the inner voice answered, ’21st December 2012!’

The 2012 phenomenon was a range of beliefs that either cataclysmic or otherwise transformative events would occur on or around 21st December 2012.

This date was regarded as the end-date of a 5,126-year-long cycle in the Maya Long Count calendar and certain interpretation held that the date marked the start of a period during which Earth and its inhabitants would undergo a positive physical or spiritual transformation, a global transformation of Consciousness.

Ayahuasca is used largely as a treasured sacrament. People who work with ayahuasca in non-traditional contexts often align themselves with the philosophies and cosmologies associated with Ayahuasca shamanism, as practiced among indigenous peoples of the Peruvian Amazon.

Ayahuasca affects the Human Consciousness for less than six hours, beginning half an hour after consumption and peaking after two hours. Individuals experience significant psychological stress during the experience.

The psychedelic effects of Ayahuasca include visual and auditory stimulation, the mixing of sensory modalities, and psychological introspection that may lead to great elation, fear, or illumination.
