The Ayahuasca Visions of Pablo Amaringo - book cover

Pablo Amaringo, from the Amazon city of Pucallpa, Peru, was renowned for his intricate, colorful paintings inspired by shamanic visions. A communicator of the ayahuasca experience, a ritual hallucinogen from Peru’s Amazon, Amaringo’s art presents a doorway to the worlds of ayahuasca intended for contemplation, meditation, and inspiration. His paintings present a world where where snakes, jaguars, subterranean beings, celestial palaces, aliens, and spacecraft all converge.

The book Ayahuasca Visions of Pablo Amaringoto be published in April, 2011, presents a collection of never-before-published paintings by Amaringo. The book illustrated the evolution of Amaringo’s intricate art with 47 full-color reproductions, including detailed explorations of the rich Amazonian mythology underlying each painting.

It is during this time that you will get a sense of which healer you would like to be in Ceremony with, especially during the question and answer times.

There are three evenings set aside for you to be in Ceremony with the shaman – curandero or your choice. All Ceremonies are held outside of Iquitos, either up or downriver or way out on the Iquitos to Nauta highway and then a short 15 minute walk into the various Compounds. Transport is provided both to the location and returning to Iquitos the following morning.

For those that have never been in Ceremony before, a workshop will be held by Dr. Richard Grossman and Alan Shoemaker so that all of your questions can be adequately answered. The Ceremonies offered are completely voluntary and not in any way a prerequisite of attending the Conference.

It begins one week before the Conference and will be held at the Soga Del Alma compound just outside of Iquitos. You will be able to make your own medicina and hold your own Ceremony without a curandero being present. Total price: $200 USDs This includes everything from the time you arrive at the maloca/compound.
