At this point, Ive decided to make this doco into 2 parts, one hour each bought separately or you can buy it  as the full 2 hour doco. Sign up to my newsletter or email me if you have any questions. You can also like the doco FB page to stay informed   Following is the talk I recorded for WBAC 2020 just before I left to join the Humpback whale migration up the East coast of Australia in my marine conservation yacht Migaloo 2.

In 2016 I was working with the Bufo Alvarius Medicine in Mexico, meeting people and finding out what is happening on the ground and looking for long term solutions to help preserve Bufo Alvarius. On another page on this site you can read some Bufo Alvarius Testimonials from my journeys in Mexico in 2017.  Id like to thank all those who have supported me with this film project both financially and morally so far. This is a crowd funded doco.

Following are the talks I gave at the World Bufo Alvarius Congress. 2018 and 2019. English starts at 7 min 50 seconds in for 2019


Ill be loading up my Patreon Page with lots of extended interviews and videos so you may want to check that when its ready. There are a few videos and Testimonials up there already. If you feel to become a Patreon  you can choose how much you want to pay to unlock videos and also see special videos for free.  here is the link. Following is the promo of  TWS.

Disclaimer:  In this clip it show me doing ceremony in the water. I have to say here that there has been many years of preparation and development of strong safety protocols to get to this point. I definitely do not recommend anyone does this as there is a very real possibility of drowning if not done exactly right. People have drowned from smoking 5 near or in water.

See “Recent Posts” in left hand column or Blog page, for some info on the trip so far and also some great interviews and testimonials.  See my 2018, 2019, and 2021 WBAC talks below.

“The Toad the Whale and the Sun”


“The Toad the Whale and the Sun” is the epic personal journey of Filmmaker Dean Jefferys into the mysterious Shamanic world of the most powerful entheogenic initiation known to man.

“7 years ago, I smoked the sacrament from the Sonoran desert Toad and my life changed forever. Join me, in an inter dimensional adventure, where the secrets of the universe are revealed. Dive with me, into the group consciousness of the whale nation, and journey with me, to the ancient sun worshipping temples of the Mayan civilisation, where the Sun reveals its ancient mysteries. Over the last 7 years I have been on a mystical quest around our planet exploring a vision that Humanity is in the middle of a quantum shift in consciousness and that the Toads the Whales and the Sun are giving us information to help humanity evolve in these critical times.” 

From the hot Mexican Sonora desert to the wet tropical Mayan ruins of Chithen Itsa, Dean immerses himself into the sacred Toad ceremony and connects with the Sun and Ancestors and Guides from other dimensions. Dean receives visions from this alternate dimension that the Whales are the great ancestors of the ocean and that they have important messages for humanity.

Dean is Captain of a marine conservation yacht called Migaloo 2. We follow Dean and friends as they sail through tropical island waters with the humpback whale migration doing Toad ceremonies with the Whales and the Sun.

The Film will hear insights from people that have experienced the Bufo Alvarius ceremony and believe the Toad is assisting humanity in a quantum shift of consciousness currently occurring on Planet Earth
