Ayahuasca users report psychological benefits after taking placebo at a ritualistic ceremony
An ayahuasca retreat could make you more empathetic!
In a recent study, participants reported reduced stress, anxiety, and depression after attending an ayahuasca ceremony… even those who were given a placebo.
However, only the ayahuasca users showed increased empathy.
The supportive group atmosphere could explain why people experienced benefits even without taking ayahuasca.
