IN SEARCH OF THE DIVINE VEGETAL –
Part 1 – Monday, November 19, 9:00 p.m.
Part 2 – Monday, November 26, 9:00 p.m.
From the Amazon jungles to downtown Canada, ideas about Ayahuasca revive a decades-old argument about the uses and abuses, the ecstasies and the efficacies of mind-altering plants. Ayahuasca has been part of shamanic tradition for centuries. Broadcasters Thomas McKinnon and Leonard Cler-Cunningham travel the old trails, attend the ceremonies, and debate the religious, economic and political questions surrounding the divine vegetal.
