Groundbreaking self-published author Joseph Tafur, MD has joined Write View as a client, and German rights to his book, THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RIVER, have already been sold at auction to Arkana (Random House Germany).
This extraordinary book bridges the gap between conventional medicine and the alternative psychoactive plant remedies which are rapidly entering the mainstream. Western medicine has not been particularly successful at getting people relief from conditions like depression, chronic pain, migraine headaches, addiction, and PTSD. Dr. Tafur helps us to understand why.
The stories he shares demonstrate the astonishing—mystical, colorful, metaphysical—effects of ayahuasca and traditional Amazonian plant medicine. Follow Dr. Tafur through the Amazon jungle as he develops a breakthrough understanding of how psychoactive plants interact with the complex network that connects our minds and hearts to our physical anatomy. What Dr. Tafur presents here is nothing short of a paradigm shift for modern medicine, where sacred plants, used properly in ceremony, take their place as important tools in the doctor’s medicine chest, offering the missing elements of emotional and spiritual healing that have eluded us for so long.
Gabor Maté, MD contributes the foreword, and the book has received praise from bestselling authors Andrew Weil, MD and Alberto Villoldo.
