Some believe it’s better to experience Ayahuasca with no outside influence from other people’s experiences, whereas others prefer to be well informed on what they might expect.  There is no right or wrong way to approach this – it is up to the individual.  If you are looking for more information, we have provided a list of articles and books that might be helpful.  However, we feel strongly that the less you know, the less expectations you will have.  We highly suggest reading Ayahuasca Manifesto Anonymous, as this is a very neutral and balanced piece of literature on the subject.  Please feel free to let us know if you have discovered other resources that you would like to share!
