About The Book
Ayahuasca is a sacred, psychoactive tea with a long history of ritual use among indigenous communities of the Upper Amazon. Made from the ayahuasca vine and the leaves of a shrub, ayahuasca is increasingly known as a powerful tool for personal transformation that more and more Westerners are flocking to drink in a quest for greater self-knowledge, healing and a reconnection with the natural world.
The formerly esoteric, little-known brew is spearheading a global psychedelic renaissance unlike anything seen since the 1960s — but why?
Pinchbeck and Rokhlin explore the cultural and historical origins of the plant, considering the role of the shaman or curandero in Amazonian and Western cultures. They follow the surprising story of ayahuasca as it twines across the world, examining its current legal status and reviewing up-to-date biomedical research and psychedelic science, whilst looking closely at how ayahuasca is perceived and used today.
When Plants Dream explores the economic, social, political and environmental impact that ayahuasca is having on cultures beyond the Amazon.
