A hallucinogenic tea, laced with controversy : ayahuasca in the Amazon and the United States by Marlene Dobkin de Rios( )

9 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,061 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, de Rios and Rumrrill take us inside the history and realm of, as well as the raging arguments about, the substance that seems a sacrament to some and a scourge to others. Opponents fight its use, even as U.S. scientists and psychologists continue investigations of whether ayahuasca has healing properties that might be put to conventional use for physical and mental health. This book includes text from the United Nations Convention on Psychotropic Substances and interviews with shamans in the Amazon."--Jacket

LSD, spirituality, and the creative process by Marlene Dobkin de Rios( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between 1954 and 1962 (when the study was halted by the U.S. government seizing his supply of LSD) psychiatrist Oscar Janiger studied the reactions of some 930 men and women of differing backgrounds to ingestion of LSD-25 in a safe environment. Medical anthropologist de Rios reports on the results of that study and a sub- study devoted to artists, convinced that it contains evidence of LSD's potential to heighten creative response, to instigate or deepen spiritual connection and awareness, and to aid in therapeutic processes. She lets the study's participants speak for themselves for the most part, "in the tradition of Western psychosocial studies." Finally she relates Janiger's study to her own work exploring the use of psychedelics for religious purposes in various parts of the world.

Amazon healer : the life and times of an urban shaman by Marlene Dobkin de Rios( Book )

4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

4e de couv.: This book focuses on the healing practices of an urban Amazonian folk healer, don Hilde, who uses a powerful plant psychedelic, ayahuasca, in the treatment of witchcraft and emotional disorders. His healing style is in many ways unique, since he incorporates a new spiritualist perspective into the traditional and cosmopolitan healing arts of the region. Amazon Healer examines traditional Amazonian healing practices, both as part of the region's tribal heritage and as the philosophy of modern mystical group, The Septrionists. New breakthroughs in our knowledge of the immune system are also described, so as to help us understand how traditional folk healers, with their stimulation of endorphins and other unusual states of consciousness, can help patients invoke their own healing powers
Fate, fortune, and mysticism in the Peruvian Amazon : the Septrionic Order and the naipes cards by Marlene Dobkin de Rios( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

4e de couv.: While studying Amazonian shamans who use ayahuasca and Peruvian coastal healers who use mescaline cactus to treat psychological illness, Marlene Dobkin de Rios learned about the naipes cards -- fortune-telling cards similar to the tarot used as part of the healers' method of diagnosis. Immersing herself in their culture, she began telling fortunes with the naipes cards and was surprised by the intimacy it induced in the native people she was trying to study as well as the profoundly accurate results she encountered. Finding herself pulled further and further into Peruvian culture, in 1977 Dobkin de Rios was initiated into the sacred mystical order of Septrionism, which emphasizes specific techniques -- such as meditation, ritual, and reflection -- to manage one's future rather than depending solely on fate and fortune. Explaining how to use the naipes cards as well as examining the practices of the Septrionic Order, Dobkin de Rios explores her experiences with both traditions through the lens of her anthropological and psychological training, describing how these diverse encounters opened her mind to the powers of divination as well as taught her the means of directing her own destiny

The psychedelic journey of Marlene Dobkin de Rios : 45 years with shamans, ayahuasqueros, and ethnobotanists by Marlene Dobkin de Rios( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A look inside almost half a century of pioneering research in the Amazon and Peru by a noted anthropologist studying hallucinogens, including ayahuasca Reveals how ayahuasca successfully treats psychological and emotional disorders Examines adolescent drug use from a cross-cultural perspective Discusses the deleterious effects of drug tourism in the Amazon Ayahuasca is an alkaloid-rich psychoactive concoction indigenous to South America that has been employed by shamans for millennia as a spirit drug for divinatory and healing purposes. Although the late Harvard ethnobotanist Richard Evans Schultes was credited in the early 1950s as being the first to document the use of ayahuasca, other researchers, such as the distinguished anthropologist Marlene Dobkin de Rios, were responsible for furthering his findings and uncovering the curative capabilities of this amazing compound. The Psychedelic Journey of Marlene Dobkin de Rios presents the accumulated experience of de Rios's 45 years of pioneering field studies in the area of hallucinogens in Peru and the Amazon. Her investigation into ayahuasca--which she undertook in collaboration with more than a dozen traditional Mestizo folk curanderos, shamans, and fellow ethnobotanists--focuses on the use of this revolutionary plant in the treatment of recalcitrant psychological and emotional disorders. She also shares some of her theories that prove that the ancient Maya used psychedelic plants as part of their religious rituals, thereby demonstrating the impact of plant psychedelics on human prehistory. In addition, Dobkin de Rios examines altered states of consciousness derived from the use of biofeedback and hypnosis and discusses her current work on the deleterious effects of drug tourism in the Amazon
