By the next morning, I felt physically sick and exhausted. I went to the dispensary and took the thimble of turgid green medicine. As the taste worked its way into my guts as a filament of revulsion, I considered giving the final session a miss.
Ayahuasca is a traditional medicine employed by indigenous tribes of the Amazon basin. Estacion Kapitari is run by the shaman Don Lucho, who brews and dispenses ayahuasca as a medicine that is taken within the context of sacred ritual. In other words, if you want to take it, you have to submit to the process and its broader schedule of preparation.
