The famous shamanic practitioner and book author Ross Heaven joins Capt Hugh T Alkemi for  an interview. Tune in and learn about sacred shamanic plants and psychedelic visions of healing.


Ross Heaven is a therapist, shaman and the author of almost 20 books on shamanism, healing and spirituality stemming from more than 20 years of research and experience with shamans from a variety of cultures. He first visited Peru in the 1990’s to work with the curanderos of the Amazon and Andes, and to drink their plant medicines ayahuasca and San Pedro. He has returned many times, including a prolonged stay in the rainforest, where he owned an ayahuasca healing centre, to begin a long-term diet with San Pedro and Salvia divinorum, a story told in his books, Shamanic Quest for the Spirit of Salvia and Cactus of Mystery.
As well as leading workshops and ceremonies throughout Europe, Ross offers the opportunity to visit Peru as part of his Magical Earth and Cactus of Vision retreat programmes where participants work with indigenous healers to explore new consciousness through shamanic encounters with visionary plants. (See www.thefourgates.org for details of these Sacred Journeys).
His other books on plants and new consciousness include Plant Spirit Shamanism: Traditional Techniques for Healing the Soul, The Hummingbird’s Journey to God (the first to be written about shamanic healing with San Pedro) and his new book on San Pedro, healing and creativity, Cactus of Mystery.
