Books on Shaminism -Cosmic Serpent and Fishers of Men

(January 9, 2012)

I'm reading two books about shaminism at the same time and weaving the themes together like the strands of DNA one of the books is about.  They are about the use of ayahuasca -- a hallucinogenic plant.  The Cosmic Serpent explains that the plants taught the people how to use them.  The Fishers of Men is about a man's spiritual quest using ayahuasca.

I want to achieve altered states, but I don’t want to trek to Peru and find a guide…and eat hallucinogenics and go through all that.  I believe it is possible to achieve altered states without ingesting hallucinogenics.

I can do it here.  With music.  And dance.
