By Rak Razam,Dennis J. McKenna

Experiential journalist Rak Razam units out to rfile the thriving company of 21st-century hallucinogenic shamanism beginning with a visit to the once a year Amazonian Shaman convention in Iquitos, Peru, the place he meets a motley workforce of "spiritual tourists," rogue scientists, black magicians, and indigenous and Western healers and publications, all on the town to partake of the ritual--and the medicine--of ayahuasca, "the vine of souls." Combining his own tale with the historical past of Amazonian shamanism, Razam takes the reader alongside on an interesting, enlightening adventure.

In components of Brazil, Ecuador, and Peru, the conventional natural brew referred to as ayahuasca or yajé is legally used to heal actual diseases and to cleanse and purify the spirit through connecting it to the net of existence. Sting and Tori Amos have admitted sampling it in Latin the USA, as has Paul Simon, who chronicled the event in his tune "Spirit Voices." Aya Awakenings works as a cautionary story, a travelogue, and a memoir, yet essentially acts as a portal in which readers may be able to achieve additional info in regards to the perils and the promise of religious reconnection via ayahuasca.

"A memorable--and deeply personal--journey into the hearts and minds of these who keep it up the shamanic traditions of ayahuasca."--Rick Doblin, founding father of the Multidisciplinary organization of Psychedelic stories (MAPS)
