This fundamental text in the field of psychotropic plants is the result of the synergistic work of three scientific titans. It provides a fundamental testimony about the “plants of the gods”, tracing the path of their use and their contribution to culture. Plants have always played an important role due to their nourishing, healing, and transformative properties. In particular, the most powerful ones transport the human mind to other dimensions of consciousness and have always been considered sacred. In this volume, the authors illustrate the use of hallucinogens in shamanic rituals, along with detailed explanations of the biochemistry of the plants and the prayers, dances, and sacred songs with which they are associated. The text of this botanical encyclopedia is accompanied by 400 color photos of plants, people, ceremonies, and art related to the ritual use of the world’s psychoactive flora.
