Book Description

More and more Ayahuasca has come to the attention of the Western media. Used by the shamans of Peru , the rituals and practices around this psychoactive plant-based brew date back 50-70,000 years as evidenced by rock and cave paintings found the world over. Through their use of Ayahuasca, Shamans establish contact with the spirit world which they call upon to aid them in their healing practices, understanding of the cosmos, and how to live well in the world.
In The Shaman & Ayahuasca, internationally respected Peruvian shaman Don Jose´ Campos illuminates the practices and benefits of Ayahuasca with grace and gentleness, while expressing respect and gratitude for the gifts Ayahuasca has bestowed on him throughout the 25 years he has been a practicing shaman. He takes the reader on a journey through his own discovery of other worlds, other dimensions, ‘alien’ entities and ‘plant teachers.’ The Shaman & Ayahuasca gives an overview of an entire cosmology with the potential to benefit all of mankind. It is the perfect book to introduce readers to the profound experiences of Ayahuasca.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful seduction of expansive consciousness 9 Feb. 2012
Shadowy mysteries of the jungle spirit undulate through these pages...

Ayahuasca is a seduction of expansive consciousness, healing magic, and an opening of boxes that keep one enclosed...

Don José Campos is an Ayahuascero - a shaman who works with the spirit, power, and energy of two plants. Ancient family recipes are passed down from generation to generation, mixing Banisteriopsis caapi - bark of the ayahuasca vine; and Psychotria viridis - selected leaves of chacruna. More broadly, Don José is a vegetalista, or curandero - a traditional healer who works with the enigmatic powers of the plants of the South American jungles. This book tells his story, some parts of the stories of the publisher and editor who came to meet him and experience Ayahuasca first hand, and finally, this book introduces the reader to the complex Ayahuasca spirit her self.

Reading this text is like sitting around a fire and listening to the stories and experiences of Don José and his friends. The book in fact came out of a series of interviews and recorded conversations, so the words come off the page in the way of the spoken. The manner is informal and accessible, but nonetheless conveys the depth of experience well - as much as is possible without actually partaking of Ayahuasca in the physical. Indeed, though the physical experience of Ayahuasca is intense and powerful, one can also meet and work with this commanding and assertive spirit in the non-physical realm. After deciding to read this book and posting the article written by publisher Michael Wiese telling of his encounters with Ayahuasca and Don José, the very next morning when I awoke, I looked out a window in my bedroom and saw a jungle - not the usual Vermont landscape.

5.0 out of 5 stars Insightful & Charming book 1 July 2013
By edward
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Great stuff. Don Jose is humble and insightful and gives a great account of the experience and the plants involved in the mysterious brew. I have been fascinated with psychedelics and in particular Ayahuasca for some years now, this book just makes me want to take the leap even more!

Very interesting book. I bought it because I have purchased some ayahuasca but haven't drank any of it yet. I want to learn more before doing so as I am pretty nervous - I'm almost done with this book and so fafr, I have thouroughly enjoyed it all the way.

It is very interesting and it gives all the information that is very important before one embarks on Ayahuasca and Shamanism. It takes all the confusions away and clarifies everything. It is a very good introduction.
