The Bliss of Brazil & The Second Coming
In the heart of the Amazons I found the greatest inner teacher I have ever known, a teacher who took me into levels of understanding and insights that allowed me to come out of the Amazon jungle with a feeling that I had been both disassembled and reborn.
I invite you to keep an open mind as you journey with me through the following pages, for many issues will be raised. Two extremes will be looked at deeply – from the sacred, ritualistic use of ancient power plants among the shaman of our world, to the favelas (slums) of Rio with their drug lords, violence and the aftermath of all that prohibition delivers in such places.
While we share the different ways people alter their consciousness to release the natural opiates of the mind, in the final part of this book we assess Global Drug use, startling statistics that show the ineffectiveness of prohibition and offer solutions to it all!
