JAN KOUNEN, JEREMY NARBY & VINCENT RAVALEC
Plants & Shamanism
Conversations around Ayahuasca & Iboga Brought together ten years ago to share their perspectives and experiences of sacred plants, the three authors are back to discuss their perceptions of the evolution of these practices. In ten years, knowledge about initiation and altered states of consciousness has evolved, as have the practices. Jan Kounen, Jeremy Narby, and Vincent Ravalec discuss the benefits and the risks of these developments in the West – in a relaxed and humorous atmosphere and with respect for their unique respective approaches. THE AUTHORS Jeremy Narby is an anthropologist best known for his books The Cosmic Serpent and Intelligence in Nature.
A practical and lively book, free from all dogmas, enriched by the experiences of three “star” personalities. ºº Authors with very different profiles: an anthropologist, a filmmaker, and a novelist. ºº Over 7,000 copies sold of the 1st edition. ºº A new edition that includes a “10 Years Later” conversation. ºº
Filmmaker Jan Kounen has created a number of films and documentaries, including the celebrated Blueberry, released in the United States as Renegades.
Vincent Ravalec is a prizewinning writer and filmmaker whose book Iboga has been translated into English by Park Street Press.
