Since the late 90's I have organised journeys with Peter Cloudsley to the Amazon Rainforest and the Andes to work with the shamans and the curanderos 'jungle doctors' (healing and visionary plants) of this area. I have written numerous articles, many with original source interviews about the Amazonian plant medicines, and have worked with some of the most respected shamans in the region.
