I have been researching a lot into Ayahuasca; set/ setting and intention and how it is taken either in ritual or just alone at home or in nature. From what i have read into it seems very much like the rituals involving a shaman are very agitated and uncomfortable (for lack of a better word) The individual experience seems to be reported as much more centred, being able to meditate or lay still (Without screaming or shaking uncontrollably) A question to anyone who is (Or might know someone) experienced. Is this the case? Another question that has risen is intention. Majority of the people traveling to the amazon to drink with a shaman are looking to better themselves and their lives. I hear of very few people who use the medicine to communicate with the universe and develop insights into its inner workings. If anyone has anything to say about this, i would love to hear it

Just thought i'd share this really interesting book about shamanic datura use, For anyone interested in these plants i would definitely recommend. If anyones read it then what are your thoughts? This is the first book i've read by Endredy and i must say its a great read, supposedly based on his real life accounts of an apprenticeship with a group of Brujos who taught him the proper use of datura and even some brugmansia.
What is the purpose of a 'Shaman'? Both in the historical context and the modern context? Most definitions Ive looked at have said something like "witch-doctor, inter-medial messenger with the spirit world, retrieves lost souls, control weather, foresee the future, healer " Can anyone be a Shaman? Do you consider yourself a Shaman? To what extent and why? What role did the Shaman play for the tribe? What role does it offer the greater community today? What responsibilities does the title 'Shaman' hold?
