This remarkable and beautiful book suggests a path back to understanding the profound healing and spiritual powers that are here for us in the plant world. This extraordinary book shows a way toward reawakening our respect for the natural world, and thus for ourselves. I pray that we are not too proud, not too entitled, not too arrogant to heed the invitation. --John Robbins, author of The Food Revolution, Diet For A New America, and many other bestsellers
Don Jose Campos has a free spirit, a generous heart, and deep knowledge about Amazonian plants, in particular about the shamanic brew ayahuasca. And he tells good stories in a casual style. He speaks from experience, and champions simplicity and humility. I enjoyed his book for all these reasons. --Jeremy Narby, Ph.D., author of The Cosmic Serpent: DNA and the Origins of Knowledge
Thank you, thank you for this book. Don Jose is not only personally warm and wonderful, caring and smart, but this is the side of the story that we have been missing the real teacher speaking, not another westerner reporting well or poorly that his head was blown off. --James Fadiman Ph.D., author and former president of The Association for Transpersonal Psychology
