From the Back Cover
Many people today feel trapped and unsatisfied with the way their lives are going, but those who do can take heart. Daniel Cleland is living proof that you can have it all--adventure, spiritual health, emotional fulfillment, and business success--if you are open to unique experiences, prepared to take risks, and willing to ignore the limits that you have imposed on yourself.
Daniel's fearless curiosity and entrepreneurial vision carried him deep into the Peruvian jungle, a world away from his native Ontario and farther from the mundane than he ever thought possible. In the Amazon rain forest, he participated in shamanic rituals involving the powerful medicinal plant ayahuasca. The insights and enlightenment he gained awakened him to new commercial as well as spiritual opportunities and led him to create the Ayahuasca Adventure Center and Pulse Tours in the jungle's heart.
Pulse of the Jungle is Daniel's fascinating chronicle of cultural immersion and bold innovation, coupled with enlightening stories of colleagues, artists, and others who also sought and achieved profound change in their lives. It will educate, enthrall, entertain, and illuminate while encouraging readers to embark on their own transformative life journeys.
About the Author
Daniel Cleland, once a small-town Canadian boy, is today a global social entrepreneur who works all over the world from his home base in the jungles of South America. He is the cofounder of Pulse Tours and Ayahuasca Adventure Center, a spiritual adventure company operating in places like Peru, Colombia, and Brazil. His Ayahuasca Adventure Center, a spiritual healing center located at the 2.2 million–hectare Pacaya-Samiria reserve near Iquitos, Peru, offers people from all walks of life a way to integrate, expand, and transform the human experience on multiple levels. Informed by more than a decade of adventure tour leadership, corporate sales experience, and a Master of Arts degree in Intercultural and International Communication from Royal Roads University, Dan builds strong intercultural bridges between travelers and locals, as well as a clear pathway to personal—and often professional—fulfillment through his programs.

Dan is 100% genuine, legit and one of the most loving, hardest working and smartest people I know. It is an honor to join him on his journey through this book and understanding his character growth and the pure will to make the best possible thing out of life, through hard work, embracing challenges, wisdom, an open mind and meaningful connections to people, life and nature.
Written with a down-to-earth tone and great wit, it's an absolute powerhouse resource into giving readers a good insight into the mind and life of a champion top performer and achiever. Very eloquent, it is smooth and a real pleasure to read. The hero's journey of a Man's Man, which gives us a tremendous inside look into the mind and actions of a man committed to leading a life of meaning, happiness and Glory.
Biographies are the best self-help books, and this is one helluva teacher.
On top of this, he offers tips to anyone seeking a similar path of entrepreneurship. The book is very well written, and I highly recommend it for anyone interested in ayahuasca, or anyone interested in the counterculture. There are different ways of living in this life, and culture isn't always right.
I am looking forward to more written work by Dan.
I love the layout of the book, which combines Dan's personal story--a journey from rock bottom to a flourishing social enterprise--with the stories of transformation from some of the guests who have explored Ayahuasca with Dan's organization, Pulse Adventure Tours. The layout makes for an entertaining and dynamic read.
Dan's a great friend of mine and his brilliant personality shines through in this book. He's honest, authentic and vulnerable, which makes him easy to connect with.
In terms of content, I give the story five stars, but my reason for the overall four-star rating is due to the book's lack of polish. The text would benefit from a closer and more nuanced edit, which would make the read even smoother and more enjoyable. Nonetheless, Pulse of the Jungle is absolutely worth reading for entrepreneurs, psychonauts (or people curious about plant medicines and psychedelics), and anyone seeking inspiration.
