A fascinating journey into worlds hitherto unknown…
If you’ve got an hour up your sleeve, there’s worse places to park your time than this swinging little convo ‘tween Peter Evans, the Australian chef turned spruiker of alternative therapies like a $15,000 light machine he says can treat “Wuhan coronavirus”, and Kelly Slater, the eleven-time surfing champ and noted enemy of the flat-earther community.
Pete, who is a surprisingly good surfer given his genesis in Melbourne and middle life lived in Bondi’s dirty closeouts, talks to Kelly about myriad topics including ageing, fear and the therapeutic benefits of hallucinogenic plant-based drugs, something close to Kelly’s heart.
Two-and-a-half years ago, the universe was revealed to Kelly at the Rythmia resort in Costa Rica, “an all-inclusive luxury resort” where “93.26% of our guests report a life-changing miracle during their stay.
Among the usual eco-resort activities, yoga, massage, hose-in-the-ass-enemas (hydrocolonic cleanses), Rythmia offers ceremonies with the psychoactive brew Ayahuasca.
“I got a miracle of information,” reported Kelly. “It opened up some sort of doorway in my future. It was otherworldly.”
In the convo with Pete, Kelly says he knows a girl who was suicidal her whole life until she “did a few sessions with plant medicines and was basically healed from it.”
It gets good when Kelly lists his famous pals, which include Jonah Hill (“I got a message from Jonah Hill and he told me he’d started surfing and that it changed this life”) and Lewis Hamilton (“I’ve become quite good friends with Lewis Hamilton and Lewis is in Bali right now surfing with Rizal. He says surfing is the greatest sport in the world and if could quit everything he does, including Formula One, and be a surfer he would do that!”)
