Banyen's Description: 

The Toad of Dawn is the dramatic story of how Dr. Octavio Rettig Hinojosa—a Mexican doctor with a crack cocaine addiction—came to heal himself by employing an ancient ‘treasure’ almost forgotten for centuries: A- Bufo alvarius (the Sonoran Desert toad, whose dried jism becomes smokable medicine). Under the auspices of the United Nations Venezuela Association, Dr. Rettig has traveled extensively throughout the world and shared 5-MeO-DMT, a secretion of the toad, with over 6000 people, eliminating chemical addictions, depression, anxiety disorders, insomnia, bronchitis, and trauma.

Dr. Rettig’s research has convinced him that the medicine of the Sonoran toad— which, under the guidance of an experienced shaman or medicine man, can be harnessed for healing, awakening, and raising consciousness—has been known and used by high priests of the Mayan, Aztec, Olmec, and other Mesoamerican civilizations. Part autobiography, part introduction to entheogens and visionary substances, The Toad of Dawn gives an overview of the history, use, and the benefits of the toad medicine, and reveals how it can be used to initiate people on a spiritual path.

In his introduction, Rak Razam, author of Aya: A Shamanic Odyssey, writes:

I could finally fully let go, fully embody this medicine, this being, the One that wears the universe as its skin…

This is the sacredness. This is the power. This is the medicine that Octavio Rettig brings to the world, wrapped in the chants, the power songs, his style of shamanizing, the deepest of healings and the deepest of openings that he holds space for. Great Spirit works through him… I salute him and the sacred work he does, and I say: if you feel the call, answer it. A song deep within us is asking to be sung.
 

Rise up and open your hearts, BE the song. Let it shine across the world...
