More About the Author

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.

The new book in conjunction with Peter Cloudsley and Pablo Amaringo; 'The Ayahuasca Visions of Pablo Amaringo' published by Inner Traditions (May 2011).

Product Description


"Many of the stories behind the visionary art hit deep feelings of truth that could never be put into words without the art to guide you. Living in a three dimensional world creates a bias that's difficult to escape without the help of hallucinogenics, and to sit and read and look at the many beautiful pieces of art brought me right back to those hidden dimensions that typically lie just beyond our everyday perception."

About the Author

Pablo Amaringo (1938 2009) trained as a curandero in the Amazon, healing him- self and others from the age of ten, but retired in 1977 to become a full-time painter and art teacher at his Usko-Ayar school in Pucullpa, Peru. The author of Ayahuasca Visions: The Religious Iconography of a Peruvian Shaman, his art has been displayed throughout the world. Howard G. Charing is a director of the Eagle Wing s Centre for Contemporary Shamanism and the coauthor of Plant Spirit Shamanism. Peter Cloudsley is a musicologist, writer, and the founder of the Amazon Retreat Centre in Peru. Both Charing and Cloudsley live in Lima, Peru.

5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly Enchanting 1 Feb 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Simply beautiful book, with brilliantly large pages big enough to show off the wonderous paintings. I bought this for myself for my birthday and spent the whole afternoon engrossed in the images and the beautiful stories that go alongside them, taking time to quietly read the stories and engage with the images gave me a great sense of peace and happiness, whether it be spiritual or simply from the beauty of the words and images. Highly recommended to anyone interested in art,spirituality and mythology.

First, i saw on internet 2 of Pablo's paintings and i was astonished as some of the images represented things i had also seen in my visions.
There are couple of things i would say about this book, now that i have one of my own.

When I have it in my hands and look at the paintings, it is like I hold something alive, the book is not just a book, the paintings are not just paintings, but in a multidimensional way they speak about the whole World, Life itself is revealing to me. Each image, scene, character conveys emotion, some of them made me feel joy, others sadness ... some i knew in a strange way, others took me into new realms.

The fact that each painting is accompanied by explanatory text i find very useful as there are so many elements and details which i can understand better.

To me this is a book each of us should have, it is a book to read with your heart, emotions & feelings, even with your hands, not only with your eyes. It is a book which you can only breath in / out and abandon yourself as it could become a teacher book.

I feel very lucky and priviliged to be able to have it.
