   Press Release


The Dark and the Light explores ayahuasca, indigenous rituals and beyond. In his recently released book, The Dark and the Light, Matthew John Schultz not only shares his experiences with sacred medicines and indigenous rituals but bizarre stories from his childhood and years dealing with addiction and how he found recovery. This eclectic book also contains hilarious, fictitious stories and theoretical essays. But overall, Schultz details traveling the world and working with many different healing modalities. This book not only seeks to educate the skeptic about the mystical but also offers words of warning for those seeking out indigenous and sacred practices.


Schultz is currently available for interviews to discuss The Dark and the Light.


Possible topics include:

  • Ayahuasca and why you should or should not take it
  • Sweat lodges
  • Seeking the appropriate shaman or ceremony
  • Using DMT and meeting Gods
  • The rise of global fascism and what we can do to stop it
  • When spiritual New Agers overlap QAnon and right-wing ideas
  • The Christ consciousness
  • Chaos magic and the willful manifestation of your reality
  • The Hermetic Order of The Division
  • Music, mandalas, binaural beats and sound


Matthew John Schultz has worked extensively with Lakota and Mayan elders and was gifted their wisdom and practices as well as being named Path Keeper by both cultures. He is a water pourer for sweat lodges, a sacred pipe carrier and worked as an ayahuasca facilitator around the world. He also is a multimedia artist, musician and educator. He is a founding member of the dark ambient band Lab Report and the industrial band Pigface as well as the creator of the hermetic order of The Division and The Mandala Project.
