What are the Kambo peptides and neuropeptides?


" So peptides are amino acids, they’re essentially proteins, similar to you know when you eat protein if you’re working out and stuff, we need protein to live but these are slightly different, but you know protein is a building block of biological systems in nature, so all animals, you know, we have a protein, so peptides are proteins and they affect different processes in the body and neuropeptides actually are a signalling mechanism within the brain, so neuropeptides actually are a neuronal signalling system in the brain.

Planet Kambo Podcast #12: Life After Enlightenment with Alexander Lasarev

The path of enlightenment is as sacred and mystical as life itself. In Buddhist mythology, it's believed that the process of spontaneous awakening known as 'satori' (Japanese term for awakening) is the unexpected experience of ultimate self-realisation. Described by countless sages, authors, philosophers, poets and monks; to awaken from the dream of life is possessing the keys to the doors of nirvana.

When Alexander Lasarev spontaneously awoke last year he experienced the unexpected apex of human consciousness suddenly, without warning and for lack of better words he died and was reborn. In a gripping 90-minute interview old friends Alex and Planet Kambo founder Jonathan Gold dissect the permanent and life-changing "satori' and discuss in plain English what enlightenment feels like, if it was painful, and what life after an awakening looks like.


You will learn:

  • What it feels like to be enlightened?

  • What happens after enlightenment?

  • Is awakening painful?

  • Why is enlightenment important?

  • How to achieve altered states of consciousness


What are some good resources for anyone experiencing spiritual awakening?


"Rupert Spira is very good, he resonated with me, but there’s other teachers that might resonate with you. There’s a guy called Mooji, and obviously you’ve got Eckhart Tolle, who wrote The Power of Now, one of the first books I read".

Planet Kambo Podcast #11: Life After Lockdown. How To Survive Corona

As Corona's stranglehold on planet earth gets even tighter the long term psychological damage of mass population lockdown is as yet uncharted territory. With rising rates of depression, substance misuse and even suicide among desperate incarcerated people isolated in their homes, the temptation for overindulgence and self-medicating is understandable. This vicious circle of mandated isolation, inability to exercise and lack of support is leading to an epidemic of psychological damage, repressed emotion and compulsive self-destructive behaviour.


With an urgency for connection and support this week's Planet Kambo lean-team deep dive into important issues on the horizon. Tune in for this week's social debate with Ryan, James and Jon.




We talk about:

Planet Kambo Podcast #10: What comes first passion or purpose? How To Find Fulfillment In Life.

The question of finding true purpose in life, since the dawn of time has left the human race's greatest thinkers on deep head-scratching introspective journeys. Believed by some, passion precedes purpose as it is the spark that will light the fire under your ass but it is a purpose that will give you the stamina to keep going through difficult times.

A popular perspective on finding meaning not only in fulfilling work but also in the boring, mundane and day-to-day to-do's that keep life on track. Mysticism aside, when one finds a higher purpose with any task they can overcome any amount of discomfort, hardship or struggle. This could be as simple as going to work to feed the family or as controversial as building a wall to protect your country.


In this weeks episode, Jon and Ryan discuss at length:

  • What does passion in life mean?

  • How do I find my passion for purpose?

  • What is the source of passion?

  • Is passion the key to success?

  • What's the difference between passion and purpose?

  • What gives a man purpose?

  • Finding higher purpose through Kambo


What is a light worker?

"There are some of us in this world who are what’s called ‘light-workers’, this will be energy healers, mystics and channelers - people that find passion through helping others. It’s often something that we don’t really choose, or plan, we simply realise suddenly, this is what I’m doing. So in that respect, I think most people that are drawn to Kambo, especially to be a practitioner, are light-workers. "

Planet Kambo Podcast #9: Defying Censorship. The Importance of Freedom of Speech.

In a day and age of instant access to information and the ability for anyone owning a smartphone to be able to broadcast their thoughts and opinions, the human need for free speech without fear of social or legal consequences has reached a boiling point.

What is Kambo secretion?

"Kambo is the secretion of the Phyllomedusa bicolour frog, which comes from the Amazon. The frog secretes this substance on to its skin and it acts as a natural sunblock, it’s a moisturiser and protection for the frog’s skin. ALthough the frogs have no natural predators, the Kambo secretion is also a poisonous substance acting as a final line of defense against predation."

Planet Kambo Podcast #7: Healing with Sexuality & Connection

In the mystic world of human sexuality, fetishes and tantra, what can take some women only a few days to get the hang of can take many men years of dedicated practice and high-level self-discipline to master. Believed by esoteric Hindu and Buddhist traditions to be not only the secret to human bliss and nirvana but also a mystic doorway unlocking a soul's full healing potential.

Jon explains how men, with years of practice, can circulate the energy of retained semen creating a micro-cosmic orbit around the body's chakra system. Monks, ancient yogic practitioners and even fighters have testified that the practice of withholding and harnessing one's sexual energy can heal the body of traumatic bioenergetic blockages and boost mental and physical performance to heightened levels.

Planet Kambo Podcast #5: Psychedelics And The Ethical Use of Plant Medicines

Plant medicines can be a polarizing topic, for some, it's considered an ancient and sacred tradition predating cave paintings and language, to others it's nothing short of whoo-whoo, pseudo-spiritual fairytales. Either way, the growing awareness surrounding the psychedelic space as an increasing amount of influential personalities experiment with plant medicines can create divisive opinions on their safety and efficacy for healing purposes.


Taking plant medicines for therapeutic relief can literally be a life-saving measure for many mental health sufferers, but placing one's self in an extremely vulnerable and suggestible mental state leaves open the crucial issues of trust and ethics during psychedelic induced ceremonies. On this week's show, the team discuss the importance of finding an experienced and reputable facilitator when leaping into the deep end of psychedelic and mystic experiences.


In this episode, we get in-depth of some of the issues surrounding the sustainability and ethical use of Kambo and other plant medicines, the legality around these areas as well as how people feel about decriminalising a lot of these plant medicine substances.

  • Psychedelics to cure anxiety

Planet Kambo Podcast #2: From Stress To Success. Powerful Relief Exercises To Prevent Burnout

Even the most laid-back, tea-sipping, type B personality is not immune to the backbreaking demands of stress fueled modern life. Simply opening Google Trends and searching for the keywords; 'stress', 'anxiety' and 'depression', one can see at a glance the synchronised ratio that these factors play on a mass population's mental health.



The alarming increase of cases of burnout and even suicide are no doubt the symptoms behind the upstream and culturally encouraged causes of hyper excursion and sleep deprivation.

In this weeks episode company founder, Jonathan Gold details his own personal success story; how he was able to replace an unfulfilling and soul-crushing corporate vocation with work of higher purpose and passion. Gold shares practical examples of how to remain calm and grounded during high-pressure situations, drawing from ancient stoic philosophies and Buddhist meditation techniques.

How to release physical tension?


"Simply put by shaking it off, and as human beings, we’ve stifled this process. We have a lot of stored stress stored in the body and with trauma release exercise (a series of stretches and tensioning exercises for the pelvis, the legs and the lower part of the body) it triggers a shaking process from your pelvis. This process mimics the shaking of an animals natural traumatic release catharsis and is very powerful so essentially you’re tricking the body into releasing its stress and its tension."

I would do it periodically, and I got a lot of benefit from it.

Kambo does something amazing to the immune system."
