Experiential journalist Rak Razam units out to record the thriving enterprise of 21st-century hallucinogenic shamanism beginning with a visit to the once a year Amazonian Shaman convention in Iquitos, Peru, the place he meets a motley group of "spiritual tourists," rogue scientists, black magicians, and indigenous and Western healers and publications, all on the town to partake of the ritual--and the medicine--of ayahuasca, "the vine of souls." Combining his own tale with the background of Amazonian shamanism, Razam takes the reader alongside on an unique, enlightening adventure.

In parts of Brazil, Ecuador, and Peru, the normal natural brew referred to as ayahuasca or yajé is legally used to heal actual illnesses and to cleanse and purify the spirit via connecting it to the net of existence. Sting and Tori Amos have admitted sampling it in Latin the US, as has Paul Simon, who chronicled the event in his tune "Spirit Voices." Aya Awakenings works as a cautionary story, a travelogue, and a memoir, yet essentially acts as a portal wherein readers may be able to achieve additional information in regards to the perils and the promise of religious reconnection via ayahuasca.

"A memorable--and deeply personal--journey into the hearts and minds of these who keep it up the shamanic traditions of ayahuasca."--Rick Doblin, founding father of the Multidisciplinary organization of Psychedelic reviews (MAPS)
