The Jaguar that Roams the Mind: An Amazonian Plant Spirit Odyssey
Tindall illustrates the shamans’ intimate relationship with plant spirits, and moves beyond the medicinal, scientific approach. Through his exploration of the three pillars of Amazonian shamanism, the subtle inner logic of indigenous healing unfolds for him, including the “miraculous” healing of a woman suffering from a brain tumor. After an enlightening ceremony, Tindall’s journey reveals the crucial component missing from the metaphysics of the West: the understanding and appreciation of the sentience of nature itself.

The World Is As You Dream It: Teachings from the Amazon and Andes
This book is a fascinating account of how John Perkins and others, through contacts with cultures such as that of the Otavalans, Salasacans, and Shuar, concluded "that in order for life to continue as we know it, we must all change our dream from the one of materialism and domination...to a more spiritual, cooperative, and Earth-honoring one." John recounts shamanic journeys to encourage the reader's self-empowerment, so that knowledge long buried by Western culture may be rediscovered.
