Shamanic journeys with plant medicine involve inducing the power of psychotropic plants to change our perception of reality and open us up to new perspectives. These medicines, originating mainly from the Southern American Continent, carry a unique kind of medicine or power that helps individuals transcend their ego-centered sense of reality.
