Dr. Fadiman comments: "I did this 32 minute interview at the MAPS conference for an Ayahausca center in Peru making a documentary. As I have no personal experience with Ayahausca, anything I say here must be put against real experience. However, the interviewer asked a number of more general questions that may interest those of you who are involved in improving the interface between humans and the rest of the natural world. Please add in corrections when my speculations do not agree with your actual experiences."
