Book of The Month

Visionary Ayahuasca: A Manual for Therapeutic and Spiritual Journeys

By Jan Kounen

Visionary Ayahuasca: A Manual for Therapeutic and Spiritual Journeys by Jan Kounen "Jan Kounen's descriptions of his experiences with ayahuasca are informed, poetic, and at times authentically visceral. This book provides excellent insights into the discipline and the rigors of the traditional plant
diet as well as the underlying relationship between human and plant consciousness. This is definitely a book for both the person considering working with ayahuasca and for those with significant experience with the plant. It was a pleasure to read this book." (Howard G. Charing, coauthor of Plant Spirit Shamanism)
