so, i wrote a fairly vulnerable (but not overly vulnerable) piece on my experiences with Ayahuasca, for The Chalkboard Mag. tbh guys, i really hesitated in even writing this piece, as my plant medicine journeys are certainly not experiences that i seek to overly share (or share at all!). however, when they came asking, how could i not?! there are definitely still universal sentiments of sitting in ceremony that i am beyond honored (read: beyyyyond honored) to share with the world. i've included their intro to it, and a link to the full piece, below.
thank you, Love, thank you. Aho. x
"WE’RE TRIPPING OUT. This deeply personal account from Meagan Henry about her Ayahuasca experience is both wild and profoundly inspiring.
The former NYC editor ditched city life and moved to Hawaii (get her Big Island wellness guide here!) where she launched a high-vibe brand of beautiful geometric jewelry, found a new flavor of living well in her island life and — apparently — some plant-powered spiritual enlightenment along the way.
Ayahuasca — which means “vine of the soul” — is a tropical jungle vine known for its ability to induce an altered state of consciousness. It’s been consumed for centuries as a shamanic medicine, believed to help heal mind, body and soul on seriously deep levels. Typically used in a ceremonial session under the guidance of an experienced drinker, an ayahuasca experience can be a means to communicating with nature, exploring spirituality, releasing trauma and discovering purpose.
Curious, confused or just plain mind-boggled by the concept of Ayahuasca? Read on for an honest, vulnerable and fascinating interpretation of an experience that isn’t easy to explain. Then, pick up a few meaningful life-insights to benefit from (even without several hours of hallucination) . . . "
