The following pictures are a testimony as a photoessay about the ritual of Ayahuasca. From ancient times, the Shamans of the amazon jungle use the ayahuasca plant (Banisteriopsis caapi) to make a drink to use in their rituals.the drink gives hallucinogenic visions, the shamans use it to comunicate with the nature spirits to cure spritual diseases and health problems in general.
The Ayahuasca is an ancient drink from Peru´s jungle which is extracted from the same plant. Soul and psyche are involved, it is very hallucinogenic, introspective and there is a close contact with the nature. It´s made by shamans (like masters or priests) and they use this to cure spritual diseases and health problems in general.
The essay was developed in a Shipibo community called Nueva Betania, which is about six hours from Pucallpa city by boat, north west of Peru.
