"This book will be valuable to professionals counseling young people and to those working with 12-Step programs and rehab facilities. Salespeople should understand what it is about so that it does not get passed over as being sensational and exotic." * Anna Jedrziewski, New Age Retailer, March 2010 *
"Since the 1950s there has been considerable interest in the use of natural hallucinogens by indigenous people as part of their spiritual beliefs. . . . the conversation that is recorded does offer some insights into this strange world." * The Cauldron, UK, May 2010 *
"In The Psychotropic Mind, three of the individuals who have been at the forefront of embracing other ways of knowing look at the ramifications of the introduction into our western culture of these shamanic practices and the psychotropic substances that support them. With sincerity and depth, noted anthropologist Jeremy Narby, filmmaker Jan Kounen, and writer/filmmaker Vincent Ravalec explore the questions of indigenous plant medicines, initiations and altered states of consciousness, looking at both the benefits and dangers that await those who seek to travel this path. Focusing specifically on ayahuasca and iboga - psychotropic substances with which the authors are intimately familiar - they examine how we can best learn the other ways of perceiving the world, as found in indigenous cultures, and how this knowledge offers immense benefits and likely solutions to some of the modern world's most pressing problems." * Odyssey Magazine, October 2013 *
