Peter Gorman, noted journalist, jungle guide and author of Ayahuasca in My Blood--25 Years of Medicine Dreaming,  has two trips on the horizon, both of them 9 1/2 day Jungle Jaunt intensives. The first starts on June 14, a Saturday, and runs through the morning of June 23. There will be the possibility of a two-day extension on that one (haven't figured the bucks for the extension, but won't be heavy). The second trip is the annual Pre-Shamanic Conference trip that begins on Thursday, July 10 and runs into the morning of Saturday, July 19, the morning of the first day of Alan Shoemaker's Shamanic Conference. 

Each trip runs $1900 and includes everything but airfare and walking around money. We pick you up at the airport, get you to a nice hotel, feed you, take you around town to some interesting spots (offer you grub worms, a trip to the local jail and all that jazz) then take you to the jungle on a 14 hour riverboat ride. Once there we'll have you bathing in the river--gorgeous--and getting dirt under your fingernails. We'll walk you to a fantastic swamp, have you hiking in high jungle learning about plant medicines, have you out collecting ayahuasca, night canoeing catching the Matses' sapo (misnamed) frog. We'll feed you great food, from vegan to carnivore, serve you ayahuasca twice, the Matses' medicines sapo and nu-nu, some magic mushroom little sisters might show up at the appropriate time and place--all in all a rollicking good time full of magic and mystery. And while it's a hoot, we take your medicine very very seriously. No fooling. And my team of 12--all of whom except for a couple of indigenous Matses friends of mine are my late teacher Julio's kids, grandkids and in-laws, will see that you're safe all the way. 

I've got just a few slots left open for the July Pre-Conference trip; several still open for the June trip. Questions? You can contact me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
