Notice to Our Readers: In the near future, we will be halting publication of new contentin the Significato Journal. It's been a lovely experience, but we have found that with limited time, we need to focus our efforts in new directions (which include book publishing). We'll be leaving some content on the site in an archived status. We'll move other content to our personal websites (https://peterfalkenbergbrown.com and https://kimmysophiabrown.com (Kim's website is not ready yet)). When that process is completed, we'll send out a final email to our SJ subscribers and invite you all to subscribe to our individual subscription lists. More to come...

Plant Healing and Shamanism in the Deep Amazon
A link to an article in the latest issue of Parabola Magazine, written by Jorges Hachumak with David L. Carroll, about what happens during an Ayahuasca ceremony.
Oct 28, 2018
Go to the link below for the whole article which explains the respectful way the shaman approaches and blends the plants specific to the needs of those being healed. It also explains how the Ayahuasca ceremony is conducted, and the sequence of events that participants can expect as they enter nonordinary reality. It is a sacred event to be undertaken with prayerful motives. I was particularly moved by how interested the plants are in helping humanity, but how things can go wrong if plants are harvested incorrectly such as prematurely or with greedy intent.
