“There’s no doubt that it can be incredibly effective in healing all manner of conditions.” 1091 Media has unveiled an official trailer for a documentary called The Medicine, which is a new film about the infamous hallucinogenic plant known as Ayahuasca. You’ve probably heard about it, mostly because it’s becoming quite popular in western society as a deeply moving spiritual experience. Can this ancient Amazonian plant medicine help heal mankind? “Humanity faces an unprecedented rise in addiction, insecurity and disease – perhaps the cure does lie within the arms of Mother Nature.” The Medicine reveals the hidden mysteries of one of nature’s most powerful and controversial healing remedies. It’s also a documentary about Amazonian shamanism, introducing Taita Juanito Guerilmo Chindoy Chindoy, both a teacher and student of the sacred plant medicine. As Ayahuasca gains popularity in the West, the film explores the science as well as the lore behind the plant and why it is used to heal. Hopefully the film is as comprehensive and objective as it looks.
