In episode #32 of The Vine, PMP chats with Carlos Tanner, the Founder of The Ayahuasca Foundation, a founding member of the Inkan Kena plant medicine school and the Riosbo Retreat and Research Center where he hosts medical research.   

The Ayahuasca Foundation supports the preservation of indigenous wisdom and culture, offering healing retreats amd educational courses, and conducting research focused on the ayahuasca healing tradition used for millennia by indigenous healers of the Peruvian Amazon. 

Carlos takes our listeners on a journey from his initial move to Iquitos, Peru, in 2004 where he lived with his mentor for years before starting his healing center located deep in the Amazon.

If you are curious about Ayahuasca, Carlos explains the plant, the ceremony and the experience. You can see Carlos and his retreat in episode 8 of the Netflix series Down to Earth with Zac Efron.
