“Ayahuasca really helped me see that we can grow and change; not in order to love ourselves, but because we already do” – Melissa Stangl
Today’s guest on the Art of Adventure podcast is a lady who walks the spiritual path. She left the city life to stay in the jungle and help heal the people through Ayahuasca and plant medicines.
Melissa Sangl is a fellow author that I met through the Publishizer, a platform that connects authors to publishers (see my interview with founder Guy Vincent). She is publishing a book, “The Roots of Consciousness”, which will be out early next year. This book is a product of her journey in plant medicine and psychedelics. Her goal in this book is to help ensure a safe and sustainable use of these substances and plant medicines and helping people get the most out of their healing capabilities.
She works with Pulse tours Ayahuasca retreat center in the Peruvian jungle. Coming from a background of science and engineering, she has trouble these physical manifestations of healing at first but after witnessing numerous people being healed, she finally gave in and immersed herself into the spiritual world.
