The best book yet on ayahuasca: "Singing to the Plants"

The best book yet on ayahuasca: "Singing to the Plants" by Stephan Beyer
January 13, 2010 - Arthur Magazine

Stephan BeyerThe spiritual superhero of the baby boomers was the guru. But where the guru once hovered with his beatific smile, the shaman now shakes his stuff: an earthier, more pragmatic icon of mystical powers more suited to our era’s green anxieties. Now a significant figure for scholarly discourses as well as popular ones, the shaman, and especially the ayahuasca-swilling Amazonian variety, has not only stepped forward as a vehicle of archaic spirituality but has become—as the gazillions of bedazzled Avatar initiates can attest—a seductive site of fantasy and projection. For many of the aya tourists now hustling down to Peru in droves, or the untold thousands dropping 300 bucks or so to drink in their own Euro-American backyard, the man with the rattle (and his less common female compatriots) has become a visionary Rorschach blot: a New Age therapist, an avatar of environmentalism, a psychedelic captain fantastic.

I really like the sound of this book.  Long read but very worth it (this article, not the book).  The penultimate paragraph was probably the best/most helpful to me.  Definitely want to pick this book up
