Description


The unique path to both health and spiritual illumination offered by the consumption of yajé, a hallucinogenic herb embedded in the indigenous Amazonian cultures of Colombia, Brazil, and Peru, is thoroughly documented in this account of the culture and traditions that have developed around its use. A complete survey of yajé ceremonies; recent botanical and anthropological research on yajé; records of scientific and medical studies; its social, psychological, and ethical boundaries; and a look at past attempts to adapt the ancient ceremony to contemporary therapeutic and religious purposes are also provided.
El único camino para alcanzar la salud y la iluminación espiritual mediante el consumo de yajé –una hierba alucinógena que proviene de las culturas indígenas amazónicas de Colombia, Brasil y Perú–está documentado y desarrollado a fondo en este relato sobre la cultura y tradiciones de su uso. El libro proporciona además una completa explicación de las ceremonias del yajé; recientes investigaciones botánicas y antropológicas; conclusiones de estudios científicos y médicos; sus límites sociales, psicológicos y éticos; y una mirada a intentos en el pasado de adaptar las ceremonias ancestrales a los propósitos terapéuticos y religiosos contemporáneos.
