Ep 55 - Neuro-Apocalypse With Reverend Danny Nemu (Part 1) | Santo Daime Ayahuasca, Taking Advice From Spirits, Parasitic Disease

If the spirits are polite, they will knock at your door before they come in. Rather than breaking through the windows with an urgent demand of what you are supposed to do. [on taking advice from psychedelic visions.]
— Danny Nemu

Danny’s background is in the history and philosophy of medicine from the University of Manchester. He first encountered ayahuasaca when living in Japan. After six years drinking there with a Santo Daime group, he followed the trail back to its source in the Brazilian Amazon, where he was bitten by a sand fly, leading to a leishmaniasis infection. This highly aggressive bacterial parasite quickly colonised a few inches of his skin, with designs on much more, and proved to be a great teacher, providing ample opportunity to study first hand the intricacies and potencies of ayahuasca as used as a medicine within the Daime world view.
