When all known roads lead to a dead end, it is time to explore the unknowable.
In Conversations with Ayahuasca, author Ol Serbon describes how a series of four annual journeys to the Amazon jungle to partake in Indigenous shamanic ceremonies involving the entheogenic beverage ayahuasca were a catalyst for healing issues in her life and body that were troubling her and entirely altering her perception of reality.
A powerful spiritual guide, Aya, introduced herself to Serbon and invited her to tour what appeared to be alternate dimensions and strange landscapes, like a vast underground city of plants. She also time traveled to an ancient civilization on Earth, perhaps Lemuria, and found evidence of an even more ancient civilization than that, indicating history repeats itself in broad cycles as do our souls. These dreamlike adventures revealed how our consciousness, focus, and resonant frequency shape the form that the world around us takes.
Back at home, Serbon developed a daily meditative practice for putting herself into the right state to receive visions and messages from Aya. Sitting on the deck at her house in a light trance, she would type lessons into her laptop about the arts of dream riding and manifestation, and warnings about impending dangers related to advances in technology, such as integrating AI into human physiology.
Feeling intuitively drawn to India, at last she searched for an enlightened sage who could help her make sense of her experiences.
Her story belongs to everyone in our generation.

About the Author: Ol Serbon
Ol Serbon is a pen name. The names I have used in the past, the places where I’ve lived, the things I have done, the little achievements I can claim, the degrees I have earned, and the titles I have held don’t define me. The truth is that none of it defines me. I am an ever-changing, consciously evolving consciousness. This is how I perceive myself.
Originally from Russia, I grew up behind the “Iron Curtain” dreaming about one day living life to its fullest. At the age of nineteen, I came to America, thrilled about finally reaching the “Land of the Free.” I embraced the idea of the American Dream with my whole heart, and for some time I thought that I was living that dream, until my reality began showing cracks.
On the outside, my life seemed perfect. I graduated from Tufts University magna cum laude with the intention to go to medical school, I got married, and I did what I most loved to do: I danced. But after volunteering at a cancer research center, my vision about western medicine began to fall apart. Things didn’t add up. Confused, I decided to take a year off and ponder my decision about going into medicine. I continued dancing and I never looked back.
As a dancer, I traveled the world, competed, performed, and taught dancing. I built a successful business out of my passion. A rare blessing in a world where most people do what they dislike just to make ends meet. Soon, however, my personal relationships and my health spun out of control. Devastated, I started searching for new ways to heal my body and mind. Among other things, books by Carlos Castaneda appeared. Then, after trying all conventional methods, I decided to give la madre ayahuasca a chance. It was my last resort.
Finally, in 2016, I found my way to the Amazon jungle. The rest of my story is in my book.
