Abstract: The mental effects caused by using Kava, a social drink usually drunk in the nakamal at dusk by the Tanuese men, are illustrated. Drinking Kava is very much like meditating, which is like an altered state of consciousness and a positive psychological benefit is that one is more likely to lead a non-violent, sacred life.
