Ayahuasca  Experience My Journey Into the Unknown

Ayahuasca Experience My Journey Into the Unknown

Authored By Nelson Santos 0 Comment(s)

  Ayahuasca – a potent plant medicine from the Amazon - for those of you unaware. They say Ayahuasca calls to you when you become curious in learning more about her. One day she literally opens an invitation to you, begins gently luring you to her and you begin a journey into the unknown. I found out the truth of this a little over two years ago, shortly before attending my first ayahuasca ceremony. I had been searching for information on plant medicine – what some refer to as natural psychedelics or entheogens – and had compiled quite a bit...

Traditional Burmese Tattoo

Authored By Nelson Santos 0 Comment(s)

Shortly after getting my first “Sak Yant” tattoo in Thailand, I was already thinking about getting another, it was just a matter of time. I thought it would be hard to top my past experience. After all, the rush of getting your first tattoo is a really singular experience. I knew that there was a big tattoo culture in Myanmar, as I’ve been noticing all the tattoos the monks have. I wanted to go to their same tattoo artist, but I wasn’t able to get that information out of them. I even asked some of the kids in my English...

Thabarwa Meditation Centre

When I arrived at TheBarWa, an NGO in Myanmar, a French volunteer greeted me. He explained the rules, introduced me to fellow volunteers and gave me a blanket and bed sheets. I walked around the monastery soaking in the atmosphere, learning what my near future would look like. While it is a facility to help the sick and infirm, all work, even the work conducted by the volunteers, is based around meditation. In fact, that’s the one caveat to volunteering here. Everyone is permitted to get free room and board, so long as they meditate at least one hour a...

Volunteering in Monastery

Authored By Nelson Santos 0 Comment(s)

After a full month of volunteering in rural Nepal, I’m off to my next destination in Thalyin, Myanmar. I’ve volunteered for many years at this point, with several NGOs across the world. Normally, volunteering boiled down to contributing one type of service: manual labor. Whether I was building schools and homes, landscaping, or taking care of animals, there was always a physical aspect to my work. I love it, despite the physical toll it can take on your body. I consider it one of the most direct ways to affect change through volunteering. There was, however, one activity I’ve consciously...
