Wade Davis | The Forest Within

The anthropologist Wade Davis was the opening speaker at the 2019 World Ayahuasca Conference (Girona, Spain). Always a great storyteller, Davis weaves key ideas about the place of ayahuasca in the world while sharing tales of his journeys in the Amazon jungle. Through his description of the cosmovision of the Barasana indigenous people, Davis reminds us that the members of this tribe are the survivors of a world that once existed, and offers insights on the connection between nature and culture that has been foundational to their survival, and possibly ours.
