Adelaars, Arno; Claudia, Mueller-Ebeling; Christian, Raetsch. Ayahuasca, Zaubertraenke, Rituale und Kunst aus Amazonien [“Ayahuasca, Bebidas mágicas, Rituais e Arte visionária da Amazônia”]. Aarau, AT Verlag. 2006.

Summary:

“Ayahuasca is one of the strongest shamanic cures. The drink brewed from several ethno-botanically significant plants of the Amazonas region has resounding physical and astounding psychical effects.

Ayahuasca is the basis of culture for many peoples, an institution that creates and preserves culture. Ayahuasca is a means of cognition, showing humans their place in the universe and revealing true reality. Ayahuasca – when properly used – offers cure and health, grants personally relevant visions and stimulates active creativity.

In this book the authors, designated experts in the fields of ethnology, anthropology and pharmacology, show the ritualistic usage of Ayahuasca in shamanic rituals. They plunge into a shamanic-visionary world, study plants and their souls and encounter the realities of Amazonian cultures and their artistic works.
