"Out. One thing I'm trying to wrap my head around. What exactly is Iowa ska? And what does it do to a person? So I ask is is the combination of taking specific plant and a specific vine. You you chop them down. You put him into a big pot. You had some water. And then you boil it for about three days, and what comes out of this is it's a sort of almost like a molasses type who we mixture. Some people say it tastes like the jungle. It's it's kind of bitter brew. But when you reheat that room. It activates a natural occurring hallucinogen called D M T. So when you're first when you consume tea, it will purge you nasty to be around people are like Easter lack you will. It'll come out often bottom, you cleared out, and that's being seen as a way of purging, the bad things that are inside you as a purging process is a release of some of the bad things that you have inside you shortly thereafter, that sounds horrible. Yep. And most people will tell you you do not do I o s ca for kicks. This isn't a recreational drug very little fun votive. It's the hardest work that I've done in my life. And every time I go to ceremony. I I dreaded you know way. If there was a way not to do it and still yielded the same. As also totally go, Fred. And there after you the the visions as they call it. The vision set in these are the hallucinations in these loosen Asians can last for hours and witnessed a few of these ceremonies for some people that can be something light. And they find themselves, you know, seeing incredible things drifting through the clouds other people tell you, it's terrifying. Let's talk about the village. What is village like that? He's in well the village where he would end his life. It's an indigenous community called, Victoria, aggressive and that village is threadbare village without electricity village without running water. Said that the people are scared of what? Foreigners. I scared to foreigners. They have been practitioners of the IRS Casero Monet's for some we'll tell you thousands of years. This is where his life would end. He was staying in a village culpa Kupa, which is about a fifteen minute motorcycle ride away from there. And that's where he landed. And he started his voyage because in these communities around there. It's now become a hub for tourism. Okay. For westerners who were going down there to go to these Iowa retreats? So that's what drew him down there to goad way retreat, and that was the first of several trips that he would make to Peru to find out more about about Iowa. And that's where he would meet a Livia Arab bills. How did Sebastian Woodruff come to meet this woman shaman of when he was down there? He really wanted to find the best person who could enlighten him and educate him about Iowa. All it is and all that it can do and really discover the power of the plant Livia seen. She's very respected was very respected elder. She held a huge amount of knowledge shaman of her level would know five hundred six hundred plants second address, a wide range of huge huge amount of malady. What would this shaman take someone likes to Basham Woodrow through? How would something like this unfolds? Well, the ceremony itself I mean, once you've you've got to do sort of there's a series of steps you've got to go through you're supposed to refrain from from alcohol refrain from any kind of drugs you're supposed to refrain from sex. You're supposed to go through this whole sort of. It's almost a monastic experience where you're going down there, and and being cloistered in this environment that you're giving your body overti- awas ska, you'd spend typically for a lot of people down there you spend weekend retreat and a lot of that is preparing for the sitting down to have try the Iowa. And then it's the experience yourself where you actually sit down in a ceremony, and then everything happened. So Sebastian is having these ceremonies, and how is it affecting his life? After the first his first trip to Peru. His friends and family would say he did come back a change person if this actually occurred as indicated he was no longer himself. He was no longer the person that we knew here something drastically. He seemed to be more enlightened. But what it did what people saw as took hold of his life. So now everything he was doing on Vancouver island was just a prelude to going back to Peru. It all becomes about him wanting to get back to peruse that he could do more Wasco. I gotta go back to the jungle and part of it is the Iowa. But I think you know, speaking to people that there's there's a sense of connectedness. So remember, this is a guy who was sort of a bit of a drifter, and this is. Trouble finding meaning in his life. Yup. And connections and relationships that everything's seem to be a bit temporal. And now he was feeling connected. Obviously things got bad at some point. So is there any lead up to this awful combination? So what we would learn is he would start having incidents where he was he was a sneaking back into this this indigenous community, Victoria grass ya and show up asking for more for another ceremony asking her for Wasco and people in the village started to get a little freaked out by this guy. You know, he was like a what they felt was a as one woman said to me we felt he was a danger to everyone. He wasn't a normal person. Some neighbors found him prowling around there in the darkness. What was he trying to do? Get in there. He was to them a dark. Gringo who was a bit unhinged. So Steph was he doing he would be hiding in the trees, he would be spying to see where you know, where was Libya on at least three occasions that we know that the villagers got together, and and corralled him and took him to the police until what do, you know now having gone there about this last trip to Peru. He was looking to buy a gun. And did he tell anyone why he needed it? He said he needed it for protection. So on his last trip to Peru. He would walk into a police station and ask people around there is anyone here can anyone? Here's so me gun in the police station right in the middle of the busy police station. We within certain thing. His could this be true? The local who tear. We
