    This is a new incentive at the $90 level, thanks to friends Richard Meech, creator of the incredible documentary Vine of the Souls, and Mitch Schultz,creator of another incredible documentary DMT: The Spirit Molecule, already known to many in our community. Thanks to their support, I can now offer up to 50 backers a dual set of both DVDs, autographed by the creators, and me (I am a talking head in both films). These are one of a kind documentaries on the topics of ayahuasca and DMT, respectively. And, an added benefit of opting for this incentive: immediate gratification! You won't have to wait for the book to be finishes to collect your reward; these DVDs can go out within a week (or so) of the end of the pledge period.

    This is another unique item that I'm auctioning to the highest bidder, starting at the incentive level of $5000. When Terence & I first wrote the Invisible Landscape, several years before it was published, we gave it another name: Shamanic Investigations. There are only four copies of this book in existence. I own two of them. I will give an autographed copy of one of them to the highest bidder, starting at a minimum bid of $5000. This incentive is available to only one backer.
