Banyen's Description: 

Ayahuasca in My Blood reads like a page-turning, action-adventure story, and Gorman’s exquisitely described experiences with the sacred jungle juice will certainly stretch the boundaries of what readers think is possible. He describes absolutely incredible encounters with nonhuman spirit entities and transcorporeal shamans, psychic experiences with remote viewing and telepathy, contact with the dead, and striking synchronicities that confirm his ayahuasca visions.

The wise and generous shamans that Gorman worked with, the spiritual allies that he gained, and the plant teachers that challenged and educated him are all described in fascinating detail, intimately woven into his personal story about the many years he spent living in the Amazon.

The first 25 years of dreaming have been a challenge… Taking people to the deep jungle and watching the medicine work with them has been one of the great experiences of my life. And yes, the gifts I’ve been given are real and available in those moments when they are needed. I’m grateful for that.

But I know there is a lot more work to do.

“Long before ayahuasca tourism became a pastime for rich gringos, Peter Gorman was knocking around Iquitos and the Amazon. He’s traveled the rivers and quaffed the brew with the best (and the worst) of them and been way, way beyond the chrysanthemum on many a dark jungle night. This is the intensely personal story of an old-school jungle rat for whom ayahuasca is not just a hobby, but a life-long quest.” —Dennis McKenna, PhD, co-author of The Invisible Landscape

“Unlike many writing about ayahuasca, Peter Gorman knows this plant and these forests long and well. Explorer, ethnobotanist, writer and raconteur—Gorman is uniquely qualified to tell this incredible tale… a wild mixture of adventure, horror, spirituality, tenderness, and insight.” —Mark Plotkin, author of Tales of a Shaman’s Apprentice
