The 5th Annual Ayahuasca Monologues: Tales of the Spirit Vine
Evolver Network Benefit
Evolver NYC is proud to announce the return of our most celebrated yearly event – The Ayahuasca Monologues series at the historic Webster Hall Grand Ballroom. Join us for a night of visionary stories involving the renowned sacred brew of the Amazon, now gaining so much popularity in the industrialized North. For centuries, shamans have drunk this powerful concoction to heal illness, obtain mystical insights, contact spirit guides, and explore magical worlds. Hear of experiences both miraculous and terrifying, humorous and adventurous, humbling and revelatory when Westerners access ayahuasca’s incredible gifts.
Guests are invited to dress in “urban shamanista” attire, whatever you think that may be. All proceeds will go to support our nonprofit initiative The Evolver Network and its 50 regional Spore groups building community for the new planetary culture. Silent auction to take place. Drinks will be available at the Grand Ballroom Bar.
