Booked for Private Event: Talk on the Sacred Ancient Medicine of Bufo Alvarius with Dr. Octavio Rettig

Dr. Octavio Rettig Hinojosa is the author of The Toad of Dawn, 5-MeO-DMT and the Rise of Cosmic Consciousness.

Dr. Rettig is a pioneer in the use of Bufo Alvarius (toad medicine) who has assisted thousands of people in recovering from conditions associated with substance abuse, addictions, as well as other psychological afflictions such as PTSD and depression. Dr. Rettig is one of the few individuals in the world working with Bufo Alvarius(5-meo-DMT) in a ritual setting – with the United Nations approval.

Initially serving the Seri people of Sonora in Mexico as a medic, Octavio developed a relationship with elders and shamans who blessed him with the use of their sacred ancient chants after he reintroduced the tribe to the forgotten medicine of Bufo Alvarius. 

Dr. Rettig has been featured in documentary films, such as “Shamans of the Global Village” and “The Toad Prophet“, and  has appearing as a speaker during TEDx talks on spiritual healing.

Dr. Rettig now travels extensively and regularly attends conferences to share his findings with other doctors, academics, scientists and ethnobotanists. Currently, he has been invited to speak/lecture at the "Exploring Psychedelics, 2018"  conference in Ashland, Oregon on May 24th and May 25th.

In this one hour discussion, Dr Rettig will discuss the history and the healing applications of Bufo Alvarius.

There is a suggested donation of $20.
