NEW YORK, July 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- In the season finale of The Adventures of Memento Mori (A Cynic's Guide for Learning to Live by Remembering to Die), host D.S. Moss, goes deep in the Peruvian Amazon to participate in seven ayahuasca ceremonies in order to transcend his ego through Psychedelic Ego Death. In the two-part episode Moss discovers his unhealthy approach to love and success and how they were driving his hijacked ego. With the advice of a psychedelic therapist and a death coach, he takes his audio equipment into the jungle and records what turns out to be life changing lessons. Although true ego death eludes him, Moss finds something even better - true love.
Ayahuasca is a psychedelic admixture used in traditional Amazonian healing ceremonies. It's active hallucinogen, DMT (dimethyltryptamine) is said to be the same chemical our bodies release when we die. In modern spiritual circles, it's used to achieve white light, or ego death. Recently, however, it's become a near mainstream trend. Chelsea Handler does it on TV, Ben Stiller does it in a movie, there are celebrity shamans and on any given night you can find an ayahuasca ceremony in a Williamsburg or TriBeCa loft. What's unique about the ceremonies in The Adventures of Memento Mori is that the audience goes into the jungle and on an audible journey into the misery and bliss of a twelve day ceremony. Even more importantly, is the exploration of - SUCCESS, defined in terms of money, power and fame - and how that corrupts the conditions of when to give and accept LOVE. What begins as a podcast about death ends as a podcast about love.
