Beyond Illusion charts in detail the metamorphosis process I went through after my profound Peruvian Amazon Plant Medicine apprenticeship, in 1998. It tells how I had to start ‘Living Shamanically,’ in order to rediscover my true self in the urban jungles of London. Come through the darkness of my own hopelessness, and go beyond the illusions of what I’d been conditioned to believe, to finally find the answers to my questions,
‘Who Am I?’ and ‘Why am I here?’
Over the fourteen years that this book spans, I learnt that this is the healing Ayahuasca and the plant medicines gave to me. They helped me to see beyond the illusion of the caterpillar, sparked my own imaginal cell activation, and reawakened my consciousness so I could bring my light to the world. This empowerment has enabled me to inspire thousands of others to do the same exactly as Don Juanito, my teacher, promised me it would.
By sharing my story and my personal journey of awakening I hope it helps and resonates with those of you who have also had profound life-changing experiences with entheogens, meditation, connecting to nature, or anything else that has woken you up and helped you to see ‘Beyond the Illusion’ of the matrix. May it also inspire you to listen to your heart and be who you really are, an imaginal cell of conscious change that is sweeping across the planet.
