“The condition that was blocking the ayahuasca from getting up here was very much the trauma that was stored in my body on a physical cellular level. The ayahuasca was like a chisel loosening it up and getting it out.”
In this episode of Adventures of the Psyche, our host Mareesa Stertz shares her story of growing up with debilitating anxiety, feeling creatively blocked, and thinking ayahuasca didn’t work for her – until a trip to Peru revealed the real reason she was yet to have a visionary experience with the sacred vine.
Mareesa is a filmmaker with a documentary series on Gaia TV, media director and co-founder at Lucid News, community organizer, and kundalini yoga teacher. She is passionate about celebrating the healing journey, and her work has taken her all around the world, filming with the curanderos of Peru to the holy men of India.
