Book Description

The Ayahuasca Test Pilots Handbook provides a practical guide to ayahuasca use, aiding seekers in making right—and safe—decisions about where to go, who to drink with, and what to expect.

Ayahuasca, the Amazonian psychoactive plant brew, has become vastly popular. Once the sole purview of shamans and indigenous native people in the great Amazon rainforest, ayahuasca is now becoming well known—and widely used—around the globe. Today, foreigners from all over the world flock in ever-burgeoning numbers to the steamy Amazon, drinking bitter ayahuasca with shamans and curanderos in order to access its potent healing and spirit-enlivening effects. What began as a mere trickle of visitors in the 1980s has become a surging riptide of seekers.

Chris Kilham (Fox News's "Medicine Hunter") has worked closely with South American shamans for two decades and has sat in ayahuasca ceremonies with at least 20 different shamans. Through his "Ayahuasca Test Pilots" program, Kilham has brought numerous people to the Amazon to engage in ceremonies with maestro ayahuasceros. Clear, concise, straightforward, and well informed, The Ayahuasca Test Pilots Handbook is an indispensable guide for anyone curious about this unusual plant medicine.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wondrous guidebook , describing beautifully what is so often indescribable. 15 Dec. 2014
By Jacob Teitelbaum MD - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is an essential tour guide for those who explore inner space.

Unlike so many writings which focus simply on how to get there, the Tests Pilots handbook bravely guides you on how to navigate the terrain when you do get there--including the key spiritual doctrine of "Ask for what you want!"

It seems the collective reality experienced with Ayahuasca is an immense and novel space, full of spiritual treasures and risks, where we are truly children. Like any child new to a big big city, it is critical to have proper guidance and protection. This is what the Consciousness of the Ayahuasca gives you (obviously massively!) on the inner
paths, that a chemical alone does not.

Practical and important guidance is also offered on a day to day level .

A fun Must Read for those who would travel inner space!

4.0 out of 5 stars You must be looking for something else in life if you're going to read this? 26 Feb. 2015

I read 3 times. While nothing can really prepare you for the "journey", this book is as close as it gets in my opinion. I don't give 5 stars so people know I'm not some paid hack. If you are reading this, then you are obviously considering doing it. Your life will never be the same. Stop hesitating and take the plunge. Once your 3rd eye has been opened, it's like being reborn. Peace and love to you my friend.

Excellent. A good book for anyone new to the idea of ayahuasca. What interested me was how Chris went into other ceremonial plants and shamanic practices surrounding ayahuasca.

so far this is the best overview-intro to an ayahuasca journey to the amazon (the one in south america). there are several really good books on this subject but i think kilham's book cuts through the mysteries involved as well as can be expected. i've taken this journey a few times myself.
