Tell me about your Ayahuasca experience.

Did it screw your head on right or are you cross threaded?

Is it onomatopoeic?

I heard a radio clip on this guy yesterday.

He was doing time and shared a cell with an undocumented alien from Ecuador I think. The guy went home but mailed Steve some tea to straighten out his head. Steve has started a church and uses the vine as a sacred communion. Kentucky is leaving him alone, interesting story.

I'm guessing you have to believe, have faith if you will, in the value and power of Ayahuasca.
Part of the two day experience seems to be this dude and his helpers talking you through any reservations you have about Ayahuascas ability to transform your life.

I'm curious how different a trip it is from Mushrooms, Peyote/Mescaline, and the various colors of acid I've had?

Chelsea Handler did an episode on her short-lived TV show about her ayahuasca experience, including footage of the group being crazy high and vomiting in buckets. Unlike the friends who came with her, Chelsea's done a lot of drugs, and the initial dose didn't affect her at all, so she had to come back and get a "shaman-level" brew. She described having an overall good experience with it, though if I recall correctly at least one of her friends suffered a bad trip and hallucinated scary shit she didn't want to confront.
