Donal Ruane will read sections from his forthcoming book ‘In search of the serpent’. The talk will mainly cover the spiritual crisis that sent him into the Amazon jungle over a decade ago on a profound journey deep into myself. It is a universal story of self-discovery and healing that needs to be told because it provides a portal into an arcane world of ritual magic and the real living breathing spiritual world that exists now and always – within and around us all.
Included in this talk will be a discussion of the importance in Amazonian magic of: the traditional dieta; receiving icaros (magic melodies); arcana (protection and defense); near death experiences; encounters with ‘spirits’ and the need to stay grounded while following this path.
