The 6th Annual Ayahuasca Monologues: Tales of the Spirit Vine

Evolver NYC is happy to announce the rescheduled date for our most celebrated yearly event – The Ayahuasca Monologues series at Santos Party House. Join us for a night of visionary stories involving the renowned sacred brew of the Amazon, now gaining so much popularity in the industrialized North. For centuries, shamans have drunk this powerful concoction to heal illness, obtain mystical insights, contact spirit guides, and explore magical worlds. Hear of experiences both miraculous and terrifying, humorous and adventurous, humbling and revelatory when Westerners access ayahuasca’s incredible gifts.

This event will also function as a book signing for Chris Kilham’s new book “The Ayahuasca Test Pilots Handbook”, a practical guide aiding seekers in making right and safe decisions about where to go, who to drink with, and what to expect.

Silent auction to take place. Evolver’s tonics, tinctures and teas available for purchase. After-party to follow at nearby venue with Amazonian décor, themed dress encouraged, more info on the after-part event page!
