Dr. Octavio Rettig has accepted our invitation to give a lecture about his work with 5-MeO-DMT. We expect a lively discussion after his talk. Please feel free to ask any questions you might have.
Dr. Rettig, author of the book “The Toad of Dawn” and the “Rise of Cosmic Consciousness”, is a Mexican surgeon currently travelling the world, presenting his research on the ancient use of a powerful substance extracted from the Sonoran Desert toad.
Octavio has pioneered the treatment with toad medicine and successfully assisted thousands of people in recovering from abusive conditions associated with synthetic drug use, as well as other psychological afflictions such as PTSD and depression.
Octavio has been featured in various films and documentaries such as ”The Shamans of the Global Village ”, ”The Sacred Ancient Medicine Ceremony”, and ”Getting High with a Hallucinogenic Toad Prophet”.
After the talk there will be time for questions and the opportunity to have a few drinks and socialize.

What is 5-MeO-DMT?
5-Methoxy-N,N-dimethyltryptamine (commonly known as 5-MeO-DMT) is an obscure, naturally occurring psychedelic substance of the tryptamine chemical class that has been noted for the unparalleled, extremely powerful and short-lived entheogenic effects it can produce when administered. As with its structural relatives DMT and 5-HO-DMT (Bufotenin), 5-MeO-DMT has been used as an entheogen by South American shamans for thousands of years.
It is distributed in a wide variety of plant species, as well as in the venom of a single psychoactive toad species (Bufo Alvaris). It has also been shown to be produced endogenously in the human body in trace amounts, although its biological function is unclear.
