    Hi all!

    Wanted to share with you an incredible documentary called The Spirit Hunters. Below is a short summary of what it’s about:

    ‘”The Spirit Hunters” follows anthropologist Glenn Shepard as he lives with and learns from the Machiguenga Indians, a remote ethnic group that inhabits Peru’s upper Amazon jungle. The core of Machiguenga beliefs center around their view of the rainforest and the spirits that inhabit it. By ingesting the hallucinogen Ayahuasca, the Machiguenga are able to perceive the spirit world of the rainforest that surrounds them. This 60-minute documentary is narrated by James Earl Jones. Written and co-produced by Kim MacQuarrie.’

    Enjoy!
