Jason came to work at the ayahuasca healing center Temple of the Way of Light (Peru) in 2012. After working with ayahuasca extensively, he began the process of dieting plants. He dieted in the Shipibo tradition and began working with maestro Ernesto Garcia Torres in 2013. Through a long apprenticeship and training, involving prolonged isolation, fasting, and dieting of plants, he was eventually given the blessing to begin working plants. After working for some time as a tabaquero, he was eventually given the ability to administer diets; to share in the tradition from which he had learned and which has taught him so much. He has been living, learning, and working in the jungle since then. He currently works at the Temple of the Way of Light as a facilitator of ayahuasca ceremonies and has run diets there and elsewhere in Peru. In the last seven years he has helped guide over a thousand people in ceremonies.
Jason is also a former actor (check IMDb for more info), certified in the Yoga Alliance and in Ashtanga with Richard Freeman. He learned Qigong from Jung-Ping Yuan and went to Wudang, China to learn Taiji. He has practiced many martial arts such as Judo, Aikido, and spent a year in Thailand learning Muay Thai from Master Pi Kob. He also became an avid practitioner of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu from Victor "Shaolin" Ribeiro and Marcos "Loro" Galvao.
As we discuss in this podcast, Jason is also the host of a wonderful new podcast called "The Universe Within". For more information about Jason and all his activities see his website:
