Through their longstanding relationship with Amaringo, coauthors Charing and Cloudsley are able to share the personal stories behind his visions and experiences with Amazonian people and folklore, capturing Amaringo's powerful ecological and spiritual message through his art and words. With contributions by Graham Hancock, Jeremy Narby, Robert Venosa, Dennis McKenna, Stephan Beyer and Jan Kounen, this book brings the ayahuasca experience to life as we travel on Amaringo's visionary brush and palette. .

Author information

Pablo Amaringo (1938-2009) trained as a curandero in the Amazon, healing himself and others from the age of ten, but retired in 1977 to become a full-time painter and art teacher at his Usko-Ayar school in Pucullpa, Peru. The author of Ayahuasca Visions: The Religious Iconography of a Peruvian Shaman, his art has been displayed throughout the world.

Review quote

"Many of the stories behind the visionary art hit deep feelings of truth that could never be put into words without the art to guide you. Living in a three dimensional world creates a bias that's difficult to escape without the help of hallucinogenics, and to sit and read and look at the many beautiful pieces of art brought me right back to those hidden dimensions that typically lie just beyond our everyday perception."
