Every day,  more studies are published showing that psychedelic substances and plant medicine like Ayahuasca can have powerful health benefits such as the relief of depression and post-traumatic stress disorder.

But there are other studies that suggest that there may be much more involved in the whole experience of exposure to these substances, especially to substances like Ayahuasca.

Briefly, is there somebody there? Is “Grandmother Ayahuasca” a real consciousness that we can engage with when the ego is silenced and the doors of perception are opened?

Dr. Rachel Harris is uniquely positioned to talk about all of these questions. She is a PhD psychologist who has also had the Ayahuasca experience in Costa Rica, and is knowledgeable about studies done on Ayahuasca users  which lead to some remarkable suggestions about the meaning of this substance and the presence behind it.

Rachel’s website is ListeningtoAyahuasca.com.

    I think the link is down. Looking forward to it though

  2. Whitley, the missing time you
    Whitley, the missing time you experienced at LAX must have been video recorded because the security at airports is very tight. While I’m sure you are pursuing this possibility, I wanted to bring it up. Hopefully, you will be able to get access to the video tapes before something ‘Mysterious’ happens to them and they are ‘Lost’.

    I predict that you will discover there was a malfunction of the recording equipment at the time.

  3. I’m having no luck listening
    I’m having no luck listening to dreamland or lax missing time. I’m able to download but there is no sound when playing back. Wondering if anyone else is having the same problem?

    P.S. I’m able to listen to the non-subscripted programs.

    It worked for me today so must be fixed. Really fascinating as always!

  7. When logged in, the full site
    When logged in, the full site download link works…but streaming is not available on the full site or mobile version. The download link does not work on the mobile version either.

    Now for listening to the interview…can’t wait!

  8. I still can’t do anything
    I still can’t do anything with it, neither download nor stream. Jeremy’s podcast was okay tho.

  9. Hi Whitley, unfortunately
    Hi Whitley, unfortunately “Ayahuasca, Gateway to the Inner Self…or Another World?” has stopped 3 times at the 4:10 minute mark. I hope to be able to access this interview soon

  10. I was able to listen to the
    I was able to listen to the full interview, so I assume that any technical issues were resolved by the time I got around to listening to the show.

    The show was excellent, and I would like to thank Whitley and Dr. Harris for making it possible.

    Sharing with the audience what is perhaps a lesser known (though excellent) book on the topic: Jeremy Narby’s “The Cosmic Serpent: DNA and the Origins of Knowledge”.
    I read it when it was first released. At the time I read it, I had never heard of Ayahuasca. It looks like Mr. Narby has at least one new book on the subject, since that time, as well. Anyway, just putting it out there. 🙂

    A question for Whitley, Dr. Harris, and the audience: Do you have any recommendations around participation in ceremony in Costa Rica, Peru, or Brazil? Given the many bad stories and fly-by-night practitioners, where can one go to experience a reputable, genuine, and (relatively!) safe retreat? 🙂

    Cheers, -SD.

  11. I’ve been trying to listen
    I’ve been trying to listen for 2 days now. Dreamland won’t stream or download. No problems streaming either Jeremy or Subscriber Special. I’m hoping this gets fixed soon – I so look forward to new shows every week!

  12. Unable to stream or download
    Unable to stream or download the subscribers version.

  13. Any news on the link? I’ve
    Any news on the link? I’ve been trying for 2 days also. Any word from Whitley?

  14. There has to be something

    There has to be something wrong in the internet backbone or with our security software. The show is working normally both on the main and mobile sites as far as we can tell, testing it from Los Angeles and London.

    Please let us know if you are still having problems, tell us where you are and the name of your Internet Service Provider. You can comment here or write subscribers@unknowncountry.com. I can have them check the security software and see if any URLs are being blocked that shouldn’t be.

  15. It is extremely frustrating

    It is extremely frustrating to need all the security that we do, but the internet is under a lot more pressure from hackers than you may realize. We’ve had to block some entire countries from reaching the site, because essentially all visits from these countries were to look for ways to exploit the site.

  16. I’ve had the webmaster
    I’ve had the webmaster restore the subscriber streaming file. It is not working for some people and working for others. Hopefully this will help.

  17. That has fixed the download
    That has fixed the download issues for me, when logged in as a subcriber. The full and mobile site streaming has been restored and the mobile MP3 download link now works.

    Thanks very much Whitley / Nikki.
