Without complex relative pronoun clause the sentence looks:
The Quechuans believed …, and individual Quechuans claimed to have …. an ichana (dream) experience.

A. contact with it directly with (It – missing referent issue – Eliminate it)

B. direct contact with it by way of (It – missing referent issue – Eliminate it)

C. contact with the last directly through (The sentence looks ok but in two items list or actions, former and latter is more idiomatic vs. last – Eliminate it)

D. direct contact with the latter by means of (Hold it)
E. contact directly with the mystical level due to (direct contact vs. contact directly – changing the sentence meaning - eliminate it)

And "directly" do not modify the noun -contact

Another vote for D

I say D.

AB: what does "it" refer to?
C: latter is prefered to last

E: mystical level is redundant, can simply say latter.
