Shamans of The Global Village Episode 01: Octavio Rettig & The Sonoran Desert Toad

Indigenous people across the globe have used natural and sacred Earth medicines for millennia to heal, illuminate and connect them to the web of life. From ayahuasca and San Pedro in South America, psilocybin mushrooms and Salvia Divinorum in Mexico, Peyote in North America, Kambo in Brazil, Iboga in Africa, and DMT-acacias in Australia, etc., each of these psychoactive medicines needs a healer to connect them to their patients: the shaman.

This investigative-adventure documentary series examines not just these shamanic medicines, but the shamans that wield them. Shamans of the Global Village is unique with a focus on both indigenous and modern men and women learning to become shamans, what drives them, what their backgrounds are, and why the role of the shaman is vital in the 21st century. If, as Marshall McLuhan said, we are now a “global village”, then we need our own healers that understand the deep power and sacredness these ancient Earth medicines can reveal.

Journalist Rak Razam interviews and sits in ceremony, experiencing healing medicine ceremonies with Western shamans across the globe, in countries where these plants are legal. Razam shows how the modern shamanic resurgence is being passed on from indigenous tribes to these new wave medicine people working in the Global Village, in the cities and the jungles of the 21st century. The show focuses on personalities, not just medicines, to bring alive the role of the shaman in the modern world.

If anybody cares to convert this to another video format and size and reupload it that would be cool. This is a 1080 .mov file.

WoW Rak Razam have really put some quality information. Everybody who values this should purchace these also from their site

They have great episodes lined up but it all depends on the funding.

Yes, I should have added the link. And another great thing is they have a minimum fee of 10 dollars for an episode (which gives you access to download the documentary and bonus footage etc). But I went for $25 for each episode. I would love to see more in this series.
