Long before ayahuasca tourism became a pastime for rich gringos, Peter Gorman was knocking around Iquitos and the Amazon. He’s traveled the rivers and quaffed the brew with the best (and the worst) of them and been way, way beyond the chrysanthemum on many a dark jungle night. This is the intensely personal story of an old-school jungle rat for whom ayahuasca is not just a hobby, but a life-long quest

I could not put this book down! Peter Gorman isn't just writing about ayahuasca experiences -- he's telling tales of 25 years of traveling and living in the Amazon. The chapter "Chepa and the Pirates" alone is worth the price of admission. He explains how ayahuasca is used to treat physical ailments as well as psychic ones. One thing is missing from the book: any trace of ego. Quite the contrary, the writer is quite willing to reveal his fear, weakness, uncertainty. This serves him well. I just wish he had 50 years of experience so that he would write a sequel. Highly recommended for anyone interested in the Amazon, native healing, mind-expanding plants. And people who don't care about those things will find a ripping yarn.

Von N. D. Horowitz - Veröffentlicht auf
This book incorporates some of Gorman's articles for Shaman Drum Magazine with a wealth of new material. It tells the story of his 25-year evolution from tourist to researcher to tour leader to reluctant healer. I didn't think a book about ayahuasca could be such a page turner, but it was by turns fascinating, scary and emotionally moving. I didn't want it to end, but I had to see how it ended.

It gives us interior struggles related to substance abuse and relationship issues; a cast of fascinating personalities, vividly evoked -- Peter's family, friends, employees, clients, and, perhaps, a couple of enemies; descriptions of Iquitos and the surrounding rainforest that are worthy of the highest standards of travel writing; and fantastic psychological adventures in which the dark and bright miracles of the ayahuasca are detailed with a poet's eloquence.

Another excellent book on ayahuasca that was published recently is Singing to the Plants, by Steve Beyer. Beyer's book gives an eagle's perspective: he takes the reader high above the phenomenon of mestizo ayahuasca practice in Peru, and shows its major patterns, and the different peoples who practice it, and their ideas about it. The material is presented coolly, clearly, and encyclopedically with various well-organized topics. Peter's book, in contrast, gives an anaconda's perspective, swimming deep in the dark rivers of an individual's very personal experience as he reluctantly takes on some of the functions of a curandero while struggling to keep his family together.

Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I absolutely love this book! Its truly a work of high art....A phenomenological memoir of sorts rich with insight and wisdom......Gorman renders his visions and relays his experiences with precision and intelligent detail, all with an air of honesty, humbleness, and clarity. I am new to Ayahuasca shamanism, but feel that its safe to assume that this book would be accessible, engaging, and relevant to a wide range of people with all levels of familiarity and experience with Ayahuasca.....

I read a lot in general, but usually put down most books as I get bored with them at some point during the process......This one however, I could not put down and even had to force my self to read only a little at a time towards the end just to extend my enjoyment of reading it...........I am keeping my fingers crossed that Gorman will release a sequal(s) or some kind of writings that follow up where he left off.......Eagerly waiting and in full support....and yes....once again....highly recommended!

Von Passin' Through - Veröffentlicht auf
I first met Peter Gorman in 1999 after being stranded with Iquitos guide Carlos Grande with the Mayoruna 'Cat People' Indians deep in the Amazon. Carlos split, and I 'rented' at machete point a child's hand hewn canoe and paddled like Indiana Jones to the Brazil border and was medevac'd to Iquitos for the hospital, but decided to drop into Peter Gorman's waterfront Cold Beer Blues Bar to tip some medicine. 'They're my friends!' he shouted of the Mayorunias. 'Next time just tell them Peter sent you.' I did, and would discover that Peter knows and is known throughout the Amazon as 'Ground Zero' of Ayahuasca, the first to introduce it and other medicines from the green pharmacy to North America in the June, 1986 High Times cover story 'Mindbending drug of the Amazon'. It initiated Ayahuasca Tourism to Peru, and Peter's friend Alan Shoemaker read the piece and followed him down to Peru and struck out alone around the globe as the Johnny Appleseed of ahahuasca.

Three years ago, I was able to repay Gorman for nursing me back to health in the Cold Beer Blues Bar by advising him to write up his ayahuasca adventures. In fact, I importuned him over the course of a year, as he had me to heal my jungle injuries, to keep churning out the colorful and educational shaman, plant medicine and jungle lore sketches and putting them into a book he finally titled Ayahuasca in my Blood: 25 Years of Medicine Dreaming. The books came off the self-publish press in 2010 two months before the annual July Iquitos International Shaman Conference where he had totted and sold the first copies to the conventioneers.

The narrative weaves wonderful, honest and horrifying anecdotes in and out an educational journey through the personal and public evolutional of ayahuasca tourism, and much more. During the last 25 years, Peter Gorman has had a torrid love affair with Peru's Amazon jungle, and has been lucky enough to score artifacts for the American Museum of Natural History in New York, medicinal plants for Shaman Pharmaceuticals, herpetological specimens for the FIDIA Research Institute of the University of Rome, and of course hundreds of tales in the book.

And, five minutes ago, on the Iquitos, Peru malecon, I just left Peter Gorman with his awestruck Jungle Outward Bound group of ten on their return from a week of medicinal plant sampling in the Amazon. An amazing guy, an amazing book, and a five-star trip in a harsh environment.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Amazon, Ayahuasca, and adventure beyond measure! 27. Juli 2010
Von lara rose - Veröffentlicht auf
Peter Gorman's anecdotes, weaving 25 years of frequent jaunts in the Amazon are captivating.

Gorman bares his all for the reader, inviting one to join him on his adventures through love, danger, heartache & a heroic commitment to ayahuasca & his teachers. Both in life & story, he provides a unique opportunity for 'gringo's' like myself to delve deeply into some of the greatest mysteries of existence.

This is a bibliography of fantastical proportion, expressed with such profundity that each narrative, flowing one after the other, becomes palpable.

I could feel the damp leaves of the jungle under my feet, smell the mapacho smoke, & see palo santo wisps dancing in the air. I sensed the undulating environment as the protagonist became powerfully effected by his life changing connection to ayahuasca. I cried with him, sighed with him, felt his determination in times of heart pounding danger, and was enraptured by a life so extraordinary that it borders on ineffable.

My one & only disappointment is that the book had to come to an end. The greatest consolation being that Gorman is a born adventurer and writer.

Just as the sun rises, the tea is brewed, & life in the amazon continues, so too, one can only trust, will Peter continue to take us through the looking glass into worlds of unfathomable & miraculous possibilities.

'Ayahuasca in my blood' will stay in my blood & on my bookshelf for many years to come!
