Ayahuasca and the Path of the Shaman is a 96 minute documentary that investigates the healing properties of the Peruvian Plant Medicine, Ayahuasca. Driven by a need to heal from his own depression, Dave, travels from his home outside Vancouver, Canada, to Peru in search of this spiritual plant, where he eventually is taught by a Shipibo Master how to work with it. The film's narrative unfolds through a series of storylines: We follow Shannan, as she begins her journey with Dave and this strange medicine, uncovering child-hood trauma buried deep inside her sub-conscious. We hear from Lisa, who has recovered from a heroin and crack addiction that she suffered while working as a prostitute in the streets of Toronto. We also hear from her doctor, Gabor Mate, whom through talk therapy, helps participants uncover how their experiences with Ayahuasca relate to their daily lives. And we also hear from Libby. Who starts her journey with this plant by leaving a suicide message on her phone .
