It sounds like your family was more demonstrative than mine.
Objectively I'm not sure how much of a role hardships at birth and
during my first few years might have sensitised me to the way I was

No. I know they are doing great things on the legal front.

One interesting thing is that DMT, which is the hallucinogenic
molecule in ayahuasca, occurs naturally in the brain in small
quantities. There are three general ways of doing ayahuasca:
brewing it from the net, doing it with a church, or doing it in a
shamanic setting. When I tried it on my own I got a clear message
that this was a waste of time for me, and that I needed to do it
with other people to find healing. Music is a big part of the
ayahuasca tradition. There's some of the church music at
http://santodaime.org and my favorite shamanic music is "The Songs
the Plants Taught Us" (on tape only) and the "Icaros" CD by Don
Juan which is sold thru ebay (not listed at the moment however).
Ayahuasca is much easier on the body than ibogaine. Overall I'd say
it's less likely to force you beyond your limits, i.e. to places
where fantasies or grand theories need to be constructed to help
keep the ego together. Although there is a reason 'ayahuasca'
translates to 'vine of death' - it can still be an uncomfortable
glimpse of mortality. For me the ultimate effect seems to be a
sense of community from doing it repeatedly with the same people.
There is a lot of ayahuasca info on the net. I would start with
erowid for info on the ingredients, how it works, basic cautions,
