Daniel Cleland Podcast #9 | Solocast Pt 2: After Ayahuasca

Business, Life, and Ayahuasca with Daniel Cleland

Ayahuasca isn’t for everyone. But it’s for me and has been the platform of my entrepreneurial career for the past 10 years. All the trials and tribulations I unpacked in part 1 of the solocast lead me to the moment of my first Ayahuasca experience, and my life’s been completely different ever since. Welcome to part 2 of the journey: after ayahuasca. In this episode, you’ll hear how I filled gaps in my life I was unconscious to, rebuilt relationships with family, determined my purpose, developed my vision, and started multiple businesses with Ayahuasca serving as a container for each step along the way. I’m grateful to offer you this open and honest story of my life as a plant medicine entrepreneur. Dan discusses the healing benefits of ayahuasca & plant medicine & his entrepreneurial journey in the plant medicine industry. He talks with top minds like Aubrey Marcus, Dorian Yates, Dennis McKenna, & Patrick Bet-David.  “No one can have your psychedelic experience for you; you just have to screw your courage up & raise the cup to your lips & face what's in there.” - Dennis McKenna on psychedelics & plant medicine “Ayahuasca is a symbiotic ally of the human species.” - Dennis McKenna on ayahuasca & plant medicine “Ayahuasca is changing global environmental consciousness.” - Dennis McKenna on ayahuasca & plant medicine “Life itself is a drug experience.” - Dennis McKenna on psychedelics & plant medicine “Psychedelics are not suppressed because they are dangerous to users; they’re suppressed because they provoke unconventional thought.” - Dennis McKenna on psychedelics & plant medicine “We never feel completely ready for life’s big decisions; but in taking the leap, we push ourselves to the next level.” - Patrick Bet-David on entrepreneurship “You're going to use experiences to become either bitter or better.” - Patrick Bet-David on entrepreneurship “If you always make the right decision, the safe decision, the one most people make, you will be the same as everyone else.” - Patrick Bet-David  “The bigger the vision you have, the more important it is to think on what type of a team you’re going to put around you." - Patrick Bet-David on entrepreneurship “If you can walk, talk, hear or see, you have everything it takes to do something big with your life.” - Patrick Bet-David “Plant medicines like ayahuasca ask us to connect to all parts of ourselves.” - Dorian Yates on ayahuasca & plant medicine “The first time, mother ayahuasca couldn’t work with me.

Melissa Stangl and Daniel Cleland - Soltara Healing Center: Where Integration meets Tradition

Psychedelics Today

In this episode, Kyle interviews Melissa Stangl and Daniel Cleland, Co-founders of Soltara Healing Center. They talk about integration, Shipibo healing lineage, accessibility of psychedelics, and psychedelic tourism.  3 Key Points: Soltara is a Healing Center dedicated toward  integration as well as practicing and preserving the Shipibo tradition of Ayahusca healing.  It doesn't make sense to take nature based traditions and turn it into instant gratification and business. The further you get from tradition, the less beneficial it may be. Tourism for Ayahuasca can bring both harm and benefits to the local community. Reinforcing the heritage, paying the healers very well and giving back to the forests in terms of sustainability are all ways that Soltara is using Ayahuasca tourism to help the local communities. Support the show Patreon Leave us a review on iTunes Share us with your friends – favorite podcast, etc Join our Facebook group - Psychedelics Today group – Find the others and create community. Navigating Psychedelics Show Notes About Melissa Melissa originally comes from the STEM field She was working in corporate America and was in search for a deeper meaning She met Dan and after joining one of his initial ayahuasca journeys into Peru, it changed her mindset about healing Dan looked for someone to help him after starting up his first ayahuasca center in Peru, and so she dropped everything and moved to the jungle to make it happen After witnessing the healing potential working within the Shipibo tradition, and the need for integration within the community, she later founded Soltara with Dan in Costa Rica About Daniel Daniel grew up in a small town in Canada He followed the typical life trajectory, go to school, go to college, get a job, etc He didn't have big ambitions at the time, very in line with the middle class area that he grew up in After entering the work-force, he was in un-ambitious jobs He thought “are there just 30 years of doing this until this is over?” He felt a strong pull towards South America He was very close to nature in his upbringing He got a job leading tours He had a personal crisis that led him to do some soul searching Within the span of a few years, the trajectory pushed him to build his own healing center in Peru Pillars of Soltara They feel very strongly about having the Shipibo healers lead the ceremony, and everything that they (Mel, Dan and the team) do is to help honor the tradition They focus a lot on integration For the Shipibo culture, their life is integraton, but for a lot of people that are coming from the Western world and other places, that is not the case They started collaborating with clinical psychologists to help create a program that puts the retreat at the start of the program, the work comes after Soltara includes a workbook for integration afterward Our transition times in modern life are shamed, getting your period, having a mid life crisis, having a psychedelic experience, but these experiences can be very sacred “Connecting to the sacredness of life is so healing and so needed for modern-day society” - Melissa Container for Safety and Integration The sensationalism is more around the experience itself People think that you just go in and have the experience and then your life is changed forever and that is not the case A place where people not only can find who they are, but then be who they are in that container, and meet people and create community, is so powerful Kyle said when he attended his retreat there, he can't shake how safe he felt He said it really stood out to him, for someone who is looking at integration and so involved in this field “I would like to bring people to this tradition in a way that is accessible, and I think that starts with safety” - Melissa Corporadelic There are new products, treatment centers, etc The further away you get from tradition, the less beneficial it may be Dan says it doesn't make sense to take nature based traditions for instant gratification, monopoly, and business The ceremony is the healing part, the ayahuasca allows one to connect with the plants, and that it is just the songs in ceremony that really create the healing Melissa says she understands that the science is helping the movement, but she is so afraid that big corporations will just run with this and ruin tradition around it Kyle says during his experience at Soltara, he just felt flooded with gratitude to experience the medicine healing in nature and in the Shipibo culture, where it is natural Ayahuasca Tourism Tourism for Ayahuasca causes harm but also brings benefits to the community too Dan says they are expanding the work, they are not taking away from the traditions It takes a certain capacity to travel to the jungle, speak the language, figure out where to go, how to get there, and how to receive healing is not typically possible for the vast majority of people The Shipibo is receiving really good pay doing this work, which isn't typically possible for the indigenous people This is also reinforcing the heritage, encouraging the children to continue the traditional path Now it’s not only a cultural heritage, it's also a way to make a living for the community members You don't cut down trees to grow ayahuasca, you grow ayahuasca among the trees, so it's protecting the jungle In recent years there has been more information and collective awareness to ask the hard questions, Bia Labate has been on the forefront of this, asking the indigenous leaders the important questions of how to keep Ayahuasca tourism sustainable, beneficial and protected Sustainability They just completed a fundraiser for the Amazon They have been collaborating with Amazon Watch, and they raised over $10,000 They are working to plant new Ayahuasca, not to harvest but just to put back into the jungle Final Thoughts Melissa suggest listeners to watch Reconnect, a movie about a man’s journey to Soltara Links Soltara Website About Melissa Stangl After taking a leap of faith in September 2015 to step out of Corporate America and into the Amazon jungle, Melissa has since used her background in engineering, science, and management to help advance the plant medicine and psychedelic movements – first by helping run a top-rated ayahuasca center in Peru as Operations Manager, and then as Director of Business Development – and now as Founding Partner and COO for Soltara. She is passionate about using her technical, managerial, and problem-solving skills to help bridge the gap between the Western world and the incredible healing potential of plant medicines and holistic health. Melissa is honored to be a part of this project and working with such a high-quality team that understands the importance and sacredness of this work. Her ethos is one of authenticity, professionalism, respect for tradition, transparency, and high-quality service. These mutual tenets are the team’s vision for Soltara as a whole, and she is grateful to take part in creating a space that is a strong conduit for healing, sustainability, and knowledge, empowering each guest to become global beacons for positive change.

Barbell Shrugged

Daniel Cleland - founding partner and CEO of Soltara Healing Center. @danielccleland is a passionate social entrepreneur, traveler, and explorer from the small rural community of Walkerton, Ontario, Canada. Since packing his life into a backpack in 2006, Daniel has sought to experience the less traveled trails of Latin America and raw, unconventional experiences until he ultimately found his passion in social entrepreneurship - business that makes a positive impact in the world. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In 2011, while completing a Master’s of Intercultural and International Communication, Daniel founded a small tour company operating in Latin America which proudly became one of the highest rated plant medicine centers until he sold it in 2017. His personal and professional experiences with the medicine awakened his passion for unlocking human potential to create positive changes in the world which led him to Costa Rica, where he would ultimately find his home and build Soltara Healing Center to be what it is today. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Creating a safe and authentic Shipibo healing center, based in a beautiful beachfront paradise was a dream that became reality and through his full-time dedication to the project, he was able to complete Soltara within one year after finding the beachside property. He believes that the most motivating and important aspects of life are helping people, solving challenging problems, and having truly amazing relationships with close friends. Like Melissa, Dan’s reach in the plant medicine world has stretched far. Daniel has produced two documentaries called Drinking The Jungle (www.drinkingthejungle.com) and The Plant Teacher (www.theplantteacher.com).

She has since managed operations and coordinated various social projects as Director of Business Development for a top-rated ayahuasca retreat center in the Peruvian Amazon. She is currently the Founding Partner and Chief Operating Officer at Soltara Healing Center, a Shipibo-led plant medicine healing center in Costa Rica, with a strong focus on integration support, indigenous tradition, and creating a community that empowers each member to be their own healer. She has also had the opportunity to deepen her work with plant medicines through several master plant dietas. In an effort to dive more fully into the plant medicine movement and recent renaissance of psychedelic science, she is also currently writing a book called Roots of Consciousness, which has won the MAPS-sponsored psychedelic literature contest through Publishizer.   In this episode,  Melissa and Daniel dive into developing intuition with your body. How to tap into your intuition around nutrition and movement.   Daniel and Melissa talk about what the Soltera Healing Center is and why they started this center.   Minute Breakdown:   0 - 18 Daniel’s experience with depression, self destruction and his fall off a rock.  After 5 weeks in the hospital he decided to change his life and what was happening in his life from his mental state and internal circumstances.  What he did to change his life and those internal circumstances.   18 –29  Melissa’s experience after college and changing her path away from corporate america which she hated.  The lost traditions of medicine and how Melissa and Daniel came to honor and respect the processes and the mystic and ancient healings out there.   29 - 42  Plant medicine for healthing and spiritual growth and used for finding your passion. Are millennials entitled or are they scrambling to find what really works.  How Dan and Melissa are working within a system of capitalism but operate it with a global awareness for a search for meaning.

He believes that the most motivating and important aspects of life are helping people, solving challenging problems, and having truly amazing relationships with close friends. Like Melissa, Dan’s reach in the plant medicine world has stretched far. Daniel has produced two documentaries called Drinking The Jungle (www.drinkingthejungle.com) and The Plant Teacher (www.theplantteacher.com). He is also the author of Pulse of the Jungle:  Ayahuasca, Adventures and Social Enterprise in the Amazon (www.pulse of the jungle.com) Melissa Stangl holds a Master’s Degree in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania, USA. After several years conducting brain and lung cancer research and gaining managerial experience across a wide range of businesses, her interests turned toward the healing power of plant medicines and psychedelics, and their influence on the mind-body connection. She has since managed operations and coordinated various social projects as Director of Business Development for a top-rated ayahuasca retreat center in the Peruvian Amazon. She is currently the Founding Partner and Chief Operating Officer at Soltara Healing Center, a Shipibo-led plant medicine healing center in Costa Rica, with a strong focus on integration support, indigenous tradition, and creating a community that empowers each member to be their own healer. She has also had the opportunity to deepen her work with plant medicines through several master plant dietas. In an effort to dive more fully into the plant medicine movement and recent renaissance of psychedelic science, she is also currently writing a book called Roots of Consciousness, which has won the MAPS-sponsored psychedelic literature contest through Publishizer.
