Classic Reboot: Grandmother AyahuascawithRachel Harris

Books Mentioned In This Interview

Rachel Harris, PhD, a psychologist, is author of Listening to Ayahuasca: New Hope for Depression, Addictions, PTSD, and Anxiety.

In this interview from 2017, she notes that 75% of the people she interviewed, all of whom participated in ayahuasca ceremonies in North America, claimed to have an ongoing, personal relationship with the spirit of the vine. This was the most extraordinary finding to come out of her research. She also describes, in some detail, her own personal relationship with Grandmother Ayahuasca. She offers philosophical and psychological justification for taking such experiences seriously.

Edited subtitles for this video are available in Russian, Portuguese, Italian, German, French, and Spanish.
