The potent Amazonian brew known as ayahuasca has recently taken the West by storm. Hipsters, bobos, and yogis all now seek the psychedelic drug in warehouses and retreats from New York to Berlin. Some adventurers and purists even travel to the depths of the Peruvian jungle to retrieve it.

It's no wonder why: Users describe ayahuasca as the purest trip of all, one which proponents say yields about ten years of therapy in the span of a few nights. So what do these trips look like, and how is ayahuasca prepared? Take a look in the above gallery to find out.
