The Ancient Voices Project is a crucial and timely effort to preserve and bring light to the hidden people and culture behind the expansion of Ayahuasca traditions in the world.

The Social Enterprise

The Ancient Voices Project is producing a series of documentary films registering and documenting the fascinating life stories of the elders from our medicine traditions. 

 

Right now, we are producing the first film of the series which will focus on the origins of Ayahuasca and the Santo Daime tradition and the fundamental questions that need to be answered.

What are drugs? Why would Ayahuasca be Illegal when so many more dangerous substances that have no good effect on people recorded (such as alcohol and tobacco) be allowed and sold everywhere?  Ancient Voices poses these questions and more… showing the imbalance we live in while giving an alternative, constructive criticism if you will.

Our Project directly benefits communities that are involved, bringing resources and showing their art and culture to the world. As we film, many by products of the film are created and these also create new and additional sources of resources to the communities, thus helping to protect and preserve the Amazonian forests and the native people that live in them.  

These are some of the products that your support will help us produce:

· Coffee table style photo books
· Computer screen savers
· Stock footage
· Recordings of songs and icaros from theses elders

Giving Back to the Elders and Their Communities

The resulting products and by-products of this incredible journey will be promoted to multiple avenues, and part of the profits will be used to create a social security fund for the communities interviewed and featured.

These elders can use the help and so can their communities so your donations go a long way towards bringing prosperity and well-being to some distant and remote communities, while educating the world about the incredibly fascinating stories, culture and wisdom of these peoples. 

The Impact

This project is timely because of the nature of its subject. We feel a sense of urgency in documenting elders that have been around the different traditions for so long, who devoted their lives to it and accumulated great wisdom from doing so.

Their heritage is one that belongs to all of humanity, their stories can inspire and transform a generation so lost and devoid of great examples to look up to.

Each year, some of the elders from the communities I visited in South America pass away from a number of causes, including old age. I sense that soon, most of their stories will be lost, untold, unheard and these Voices from the Forest will pass on what they can only to those fortunate enough to be there to hear it.
