Ayahuasca… a dark, psychedelic brew known as “the vine of the dead”; a substance that is believed to transport the drinker to the world of the spirits.
The Ayahuasca Diaries is a vine-entangled tale of shamans, jungles, psychedelic substances, a broken-hearted poker player, a few pretty girls (and a couple who aren’t) and several dark temples where smoking and spitting are encouraged . . . if only to ease access into the spirit world.
This lively travelogue follows author Caspar Greeff’s psycho-spiritual odyssey through the rain forests of Peru and further to Colombia, Brazil, Venezuela and Ecuador where ayahuasca is taken in the dark of night at ceremonies presided over by shamans who sing otherworldly songs that are both magical and healing. His ayahuasca experiences ignite in him a renewed enchantment with life that leaves him with a burgeoning sense of self and an intimate connection with the natural world.
