13 Jul Ayahuasca
“Some ayahuasca first-time consumers have a beautiful and powerful experience. I found them to be a small minority. They probably won’t need this book. Others, seem to ‘need’ to go through a hellish but transformative experience. I was one of them. I wrote this book so they can better prepare themselves.” —the author
Yogesh and Aesha, two friends that I met in a meditation silent retreat in India, have planned to go to the Amazon jungle to partake in ayahuasca ceremonies.
Although my knowledge of shamanism is still rudimentary, I have heard of ayahuasca, the famous “vine of the dead,” a plant-based concoction that radically alters the state of consciousness, also known as “the plant which opens the door to the spirit world”.
Seeking spiritual growth, I decide to accompany my friends. I am not aware, however, that the spirits of the forest and that of ayahuasca were going to take me on the most intense, most terrifying, and yet, the most transformational experience of my life.
This is the story of a journey to self-discovery with shamanism and ayahuasca, a journey to the Heart.
This book is divided into two parts:
— An autobiographical account that focuses on an adventure in the Brazilian jungle among the shamans of the Huni Kuin people;
— A detailed guide with detailed advice on shamanic practices such as ayahuasca, kambó, rapé, and other rituals, traditions, and ceremonial uses.
