Publisher's Summary

When Western medicine had failed them, these 16 people turned to the magical, mysterious plant medicine Ayahuasca...

And their lives changed forever. Could it do the same for you?

In The Healing Power of Ayahuasca, author Marc McLean tells how the Amazonian medicine saved him at the lowest point of his life. Ayahuasca gifted a level of emotional and psychological healing he’d never have achieved in a lifetime of therapy.

Those profound experiences inspired Marc to interview people from all over the world whose lives have been completely transformed after drinking Ayahuasca.

In this collection of incredible true stories, you’ll hear about an American woman who overcame bulimia and the depression that had haunted her from the age of 11.

A South African woman addicted to heroin for four years cured overnight.

An elderly Dutchman aged 85 releasing childhood trauma from the Second World War.

In this audiobook:

  • You’ll learn about the amazing healing power of Ayahuasca for emotional, psychological, and even physical issues.
  • You’ll be inspired that you too can overcome your darkest days with the help of Ayahuasca, just like the people in this book who are now living healthier, happier lives.
  • You’ll be given hope that you can become well again, even if doctors, therapists, or all other avenues of treatment have let you down in the past.

This is not one person’s life story that you probably won’t relate to, or a dramatised version of events at Ayahuasca retreats filled with colour and lacking substance.

Instead, 16 people share how they healed a multitude of illnesses and issues through Ayahuasca, including PTSD, depression, sexual abuse trauma, eating disorders, crippling fear, chronic health problems, and more.

These people openly share how they overcame the toughest times in their lives, their deep inward journeys with Ayahuasca, and how they finally discovered who they really are.

Want to learn all about their incredible stories, and find the inspiration for your own healing and self discovery? Order your copy of the audiobook today.

Realistic and to the point

It was really nice to hear about other people experiences. It was not sugar coated and not long drama. It gives an realistic expectations of the after ceremony impacts on people lives and how it all depend on our actions. It respectfully removes the mysticism and showed how it change people. I recommend the book. It was a man easy “read” on audible.

I have watched several documentaries online about ayahuasca which really grabbed my attention. To hear the healing stories in this audiobook was just so heartwarming.

First time with an audio book!

I am very happy with my decision to be my first time ever listening to an audio book, And I chose this piece with my personal interest into Psychedelics and Plant medicines. Was very engaged in each chapter with a calling coming out to me from all these different perspectives and stories of this plant medicine. Highly recommended to someone who would love to hear real life experiences and who needs an extra idea if this plant medicine is for them.

wonderful inspiring stories

the stories are very inspiring and will help notnonly those who want to go on a retreat but for people who suffer with depression because it shows how people delved into their mind and got to the root cause .

Certainly insightful

Very interesting content. The narrator can of course help to make or even possibly break the experience. The narrator for this one was fine as long as he straight read the material. Unfortunately, every time accounts from those interviewed were presented in direct speech he puts on a different voice and a different one for each person. This was sometimes ok but sometimes it was comical to the point of being a little crap perhaps. This idiosyncracy doesn't come through on the sample of the book and had it done, I may well not have purchased it. Fortunately it didn't overly "harm" proceedings but if it had been much longer than the (little over) 5-hour listen it might have made a bigger dent in the experience.
But back to the content: it focuses mainly on the before and after experiences of the individuals which provides more insight than the myriad of uploaded testimonials online - which are often interesting in any case.
Despite the issue with the narration, it was easy to listen to for long periods and rounds up with helpful information regarding how to go about finding retreats, how to judge their credibility and what to avoid.

Interesting and Informative!

I found the stories presented in the book were well-balanced - individuals recall the uncomfortable feelings, practical arrangements as well as the pleasant and positive aspects of their ayahuasca experience. The book is well written- I listened to this book in one sitting. Would recommend , particularly to those interested in alternative to modern medicine or those looking for practical information on how to safely access ayahuasca. Rebecca McKeown
