More and more people from all walks of life and spiritual and religious backgrounds feel drawn to Ayahuasca in often surprising ways. In “Ayahuasca: Soul Medicine of the Amazon Jungle” , author Javier Regueiro offers a guide for those new to the use of this powerful medicine that originates in the Amazon rainforest.

Javier not only provides general information about Ayahuasca, but he bridges the cultural gap between the native and the current use of Ayahuasca by Westerners. This guide offers background about the plant medicine, its history, and how to engage with and learn through its use. It includes stories of Javier’s personal experience of transformation, as well as stories from those he’s guided in ceremonies.

Addressed to the ever-increasing number of people who approach this medicine for their own personal healing and development, this guidebook provides clear and practical advice on how to use this therapeutic modality in a fashion that is meaningful to modern people for a maximum of benefit.

“San Pedro/Huachuma: Opening the Pathways of the Heart”

“San Pedro/Huachuma: Opening The Pathways Of The Heart” is an invitation to explore and reconnect with our inner landscapes with the help of San Pedro, also known in South America as Huachuma. San Pedro (Echinopsis pachanoi) is a psychoactive cactus native of the Andes, but more importantly it’s an ancestral medicine that has been used for millennia for healing and ceremonial purposes.

Our Western psychic and psychological make-up differs radically from that of Andean people, and our needs as modern people differ just as much from the needs of the ancestors and inhabitants of this land. This book intends to bridge such cultural gap in ways that honor the wealth of wisdom gathered through centuries of native studies and experimentation, and at the same time address our present day state of emotional disconnection and spiritual confusion, which are at the root of most physical, emotional, and mental diseases.

Javier draws a comprehensive and practical map for exploring consciousness using this ancestral medicine by sharing from his extensive knowledge as a plant medicine person, his personal experiences, and those of the many people he has guided over the years using this medicine.

Both books are published by Lifestyle Entrepreneurs Press and are available in print, Kindle and audiobook formats.
