A ritual club for 21st century sense seekers

Anouk Friedli and Guus Diepenmaat are researching what faith means today and what the hell religion still has to do with it. They create a ritual club for 21st century sense seekers. Experienced ayahuasca users, spiritual beginners, conservative atheists, doubting agnostics, everyone is welcome. Will the public abandon the ratio and surrender to their gut?
