Marc-John  Brown has been studying shamanism since the year 2008. Having traveled extensively since his late teens, he has built close and intimate friendships with a number of indigenous populations across Latin America and the world.

He is Executive Secretary of El Puente, a non-profit foundation that helps reciprocate and regenerate among Amazonian indigenous populations. And together with his Peruvian wife, he is co-founder of Native Wisdom Hub, a cultural education and training company that coaches and mentors people in plant-spirit shamanism whilst working hard to keep the voices of the world's living indigenous populations alive as we transition through the psychedelic renaissance.

They interview CIA officials, medical experts, Pulitzer-prize winning journalists, eyewitnesses and a former Secret Service agent who, in 2023, came forward with groundbreaking new evidence.
