The Popularity of Ayahuasca and Other Plant Medicines

by Audio, New to Shamanism, Teachings & Stories (Audio)

Vegetalisa is a term used to refer to a practice of mestizo shamanism in the Peruvian Amazon in which the shamans — known as vegetalistas — are said to gain their knowledge and power to cure from the vegetales, or plants of the region. Dr. Steven Farmer interviews Sirena, a vegetalista who specializes in Ayahuasca and Huachuma plant medicines. Sirena speaks of the rugged path to becoming a vegetalista and the dishonoring that is occurring due to the popularity of these plant medicines.
