Ayahuasca, a psychedelic brew from the Amazon rainforest, is entering the Western lexicon through the popular media, the internet, and first-person reports. Considered a medicine by practitioners, the tea has great therapeutic potential that is just beginning to be studied. As a result of her own personal experience with ayahuasca, Dr. Rachel Harris was inspired to research how this medicine was being used in North America in the largest study of this kind to date. Listening to Ayahuasca describes her findings, including miracle cures of depression and addiction, therapeutic breakthroughs, spiritual revelations, and challenging or bad trips.As a research scientist and psychotherapist, Harris wanted to know what happens in the days and weeks following an ayahuasca ceremony — if people find lasting relief from depression and anxiety; if those with alcohol problems permanently stop drinking; if transcendent experiences with ayahuasca translate into a more spiritual life; and more.In Listening to Ayahuasca: New Hope for Depression, Addiction, PTSD, and Anxiety (New World Library, March 15, 2017), Harris not only shares compelling firsthand accounts of the drug’s healing effects from her groundbreaking research, she also shares her own personal experiences with ayahuasca and explains how she has integrated them therapeutically into her life.
