The Initiation

Program type: alternative medicine documentary SERIES
Number of seasons: 4
Number of episodes: 27
Running time: 23’
Original title: Kossakowski. Wtajemniczenie

Przemek Kossakowski sets off with the TVN camera on the next journey. This time, however, it will go a step further in the search for mysterious initiations, ancient rituals, extraordinary healers and shamans. Will he prove that there are still places cut off from civilization in remote corners of the world?

"Initiation" is another attempt to answer the question whether shamanic rituals and unconventional medicine treatments are really effective. Colombia, Peru, Siberia - it is there that Przemek Kossakowski will check on his own skin how the extraordinary witch doctor practice looks like. What is used in the Amazon and not allowed in Europe, hallucinogenic Ayahuaska? How does running naked through the frozen Siberian village affect our body? Do the camel's blood and snake's head actually have healing properties?

Answers to these and many other questions you will find out soon in the new program "The Initiation"!
