My name is Gerardo. I am working on a documentary about mental health. Four years ago, I was stuck in a very debilitating depression that almost took my life. One day, I decided to eat psilocybin mushrooms, also known as "magic mushrooms." This day began the most incredible and magical journey out of my depression. I immediately decided to write a book about my story to share with the world, which I recently have just published. In addition to the book, I began filming a documentary about my magical journey in the mountains of Oaxaca, Mexico, the birthplace of these magical mushrooms. I learned so much on this adventure, interviewed so many amazing locals, and made such progress, that I will be taking another trip to Mexico in November, this time to the world's first 5-Meo-DMT focused healing retreat, to continue telling my story through the big screen. I will be documenting my upcoming journeys with 5-Meo-DMT, known as the most potent psychoactive molecule on the planet, as I use the medicine to help me overcome very serious and real adversity that has plagued this mission from the start. I will cover the trials & tribulations of what it takes to open such a healing retreat in a foreign country, as well as many success stories revolving around DMT.
Psychedelics are undoubtedly the future of mental health and it is my mission to bring this information to the forefront in a very beautiful, real, raw, and easy to digest format. I wish to tell my story, going on four years now, so that you can begin to learn about these life saving plant medicines. We all know someone suffering with depression. Let's give them the gift of hope.
