Ross and Carrie accept an invitation to Rythmia Life Advancement Center in Costa Rica, where they will spend a week healing their hearts, reuniting with their souls, and learning what the moon yearns to teach humanity, all through the power of Ayahuasca.
Ross and Carrie attend the MANDATORY introductory talk by founder Gerry Powell. They learn that the moon is female, can talk, and has a crucial message for everyone. Plus, Carrie does the most disgusting thing she's ever endured for this show.
Ross and Carrie recover from their EQUALLY TAXING ayahuasca trips with good talks and great food. Ross gets his own butt cleanse, and attends a lecture about a very questionable medical procedure. Plus, Carrie learns which evil dictator invented fluoride.
Ross takes three cups of ayahuasca, the potent hallucinogen. After suffering the depths of disgust, solitude and confusion, he dances with the stars, meets an alien/human hybrid, and passes out in front of the bathroom. This and more in Rythmia part 5!
It's Wednesday morning at Rythmia, and Ross and Carrie head off to find out what question they are the answer to, and to improve their relationships through love gardening. Plus, they ride bikes to the ocean and MEET DOGS!
Ross returns for his third ayahuasca ceremony at Rythmia. A group of female shamans and assistants sends him off on a quest to hang out with insects, meet a cartoon rodent, see inside his own brain, and dance with a poisonous animal. Suffer the illusion!
The Rythmia guests wake up early to attend Gerry's "Nu-heart" talk, wherein he reveals what color our auras will soon be, explains what questions to ask of Mother Ayahuasca tonight, and tells everyone to ignore any suspicions that they're overdosing.
Ross participates in his fourth and final ayahuasca ceremony, with frightening and dangerous results. Will Rythmia live up to its reputation as a "really safe environment" that is "very attentive to whatever it is you might need medically"? Find out.
Ross and Carrie interview Rythmia's Dr. Jeff McNairy, to get his take on what happened to Ross, his perspective on "miracles," and what services exactly you can get at the Rythmia ICU.
Carrie attends Paola's final talk, and Ross joins her for a breathwork session that is NOT AT ALL like holotropic breathwork, except in the ways that it is. Plus, Gerry sums up the week with a closing talk, and one attendee has a dramatic owl encounter.
We bring you our final thoughts on Rythmia. What happened after we got home? What does Gerry's book contain? And how did Rythmia attempt to stifle this series? Plus, a very sad story illuminates how promises of a "miracle" can come at a high cost.
