Megan Fox said she experienced “hell” and felt her ego die after taking ayahuasca, a tea that contains the psychedelic drug DMT, with her boyfriend Machine Gun Kelly.
During an episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” with guest host Arsenio Hall, Fox described their trip to Costa Rica where they participated in a three night indigenous-led ceremony with 20 others.
“So I was thinking it was like glamping, like it was gonna be some kind of five-star experience. But you get there and you really are in the middle of the jungle, and you don’t get to eat after like 1 p.m,” Fox told Hall.
Despite the lack of amenities, Fox said the experience was transformative.
The ceremony started with group vomiting
According to Fox, the ayahuasca ceremony started with a group vomiting session where each participant drank lemongrass tea to induce nausea.
At first, Fox said she was skeptical of the practice. But after giving it a try, she said it was “such a good bonding experience.”
“And you have to vomit a certain amount until they let you get back with everyone else, so you’re like cheering on everyone as they throw up,” Fox said.
Fox says she felt like she was in her own personal hell, and then her ego died
Once Fox took ayahuasca, she said it felt like she was in her own personal hell.
“Just knowing its eternity is torture in itself, because there’s no beginning, middle or end. So you have a real ego death,” said Fox.
She added that it felt like the ayahuasca went “straight into your soul, and it takes you to the psychological prison that you hold yourself in.”
