For the past three decades Dr Williams has risked his personal safety to journey among shamans in Peru the mystical and spiritual centre of our times. The spiritual travelogue includes descriptions of the shamanic ceremonies he performed at sacred sites like Machu Picchu and Cuzco as well as his initiations using the mind- expanding psychedelic ayahuasca and the sacred coca plant.

"Dr. Williams provides the clarity of a high-altitude mind sharpened by many years in the mountains. This is a sensitive, true-to-life study of native people. The author's photographs are as wondrous and life-affirming as his observations and writing." aGerald Hausman, author of The Kebra Nagast: The Lost Bible of Rastafarian Wisdom and Faith from Ethiopia and Jamaica "An exhilarating and aesthetically lovely adventure, an intimate glimpse into a timeless way of life that embodies the ethical, moral, and spiritual principles for which so many in the Western world are searching. J. E. Williams has gifted us with an extraordinarily fine contribution to our understanding of indigenous wisdom, and in the process, he has created very good medicine indeed!" aHank Wesselman PhD, anthropologist and author of the Spiritwalker Trilogy, The Journey to the Sacred Garden, and Spirit Medicine An exhilarating and aesthetically lovely adventure, an intimate glimpse into a timeless way of life that embodies the ethical, moral, and spiritual principles for which so many in the Western world are searching.
