In this week's Episode 02 of the DoseNation Podcast
we briefly discussed Kyle Nolan, the ayahuasca tourist found dead after taking ayahuasca with the shaman Mancoluto at the Shimbre center in Peru. Kyle's father, Sean Nolan, raised over $8,000 to have his son's body returned to the states, and is now trying to raise $3,500 for the US autopsy. This week, on the Fundly site
where Sean is soliciting donations, he wrote:
I'm 35% ($1240) toward raising $3500 through fundly.com for Kyle's U.S. autopsy report. It was a blow to my family to learn recently that the Peruvian shaman got off with probation within the Peru criminal justice system. Shaman Mancoluto lied to my daughter, Marion, and her mother, told them Kyle wandered off disillusioned down the road pulling his suitcase on wheels. Truth is Mancoluto, after 24 hours non-attendance, found my son dead, then carried or dragged my precious son like an animal further into the jungle and buried him, dug up later by the Peruvian police after the shaman confessed.
This is why I'm angry: a NY stockbroker had a transformative experience through shaman Mancoluto. The stockbroker's wealth and newly found spiritual transformation was the financial backing behind the creation of Shimbre Center, where my son died. The stockbroker then went back to NY, leaving a problem he didn't care about in the jungle.
This stockbroker had been warned about unsafe conditions at the Peru Shimbre Center over two years before Kyle's death; that his shaman Mancoluto believed himself to be a 5th generation Martian and could take care of, via Martian ESP, ayahuasca participants walking into the jungle largely alone, which accounts for my son Kyle not being found for 24 hours.
Everything on their Shimbre website and in their professionally done 90 minute film documentary, 'Stepping Into The Fire,' emphasized a very safe environment. Kyle's triplet sister, Marion, told me Kyle was obsessed this past summer watching 'Stepping Into The Fire.'
I have a lawyer on contingency willing to take this case further. In order for that to begin, I need the full autopsy report.
This story gets a little wilder and weirder every time I hear it.
