Internationally respected Peruvian shaman Don José Campos introduces the practices and benefits of Ayahuasca, the psychoactive plant brew that, according to the latest finds, has been used for healing by Amazonian shamans for as long as 70,000 years. In the first part of this 2-part interview, Don José Campos, assisted by translator, musician, and ceremony assistant Alberto Roman, will discuss his book The Shaman & Ayahuasca. Ayahuasca is called a plant teacher because it can heal physical, psychological, and emotional blocks. Through vivid visions, Ayahuasca takes the patient to other realms and dimensions, providing profound insights into human beings’ true nature and place in the cosmos. This book also includes the last interview (and the artwork) of internationally renowned visionary painter and former shaman Pablo Amaringo. -- Don José Campos lives in Pucallpa, Peru. He has studied with over 120 master curanderos throughout South America including Don Solon of Iquitos. This is his first book.
