Five Weeks in the Amazon

A backpacker’s journey: life in the rainforest, Ayahuasca, and a Peruvian shaman’s ancient diet

Five Weeks in the Amazon - Ebook Cover

Would I find modern wisdom in ancient traditions?

Could a shaman save me?

Or was I just looking for an excuse to get high?

I was on the cover Skateboard Canada at 18, met the president of Tahiti at 25, traveled the world and had a six-figure salary by the time I was 26…. And I was completely miserable.

By 28 I’d lost everything, I’d lost my job, I’d lost my marriage, I’d lost the most important thing anyone can lose — I’d lost myself. No matter what I did in life, no matter how hard I tried to find happiness, it always seemed to fall apart. With nothing but a backpack and a ton of questions, I went to the Amazon to look for a shaman that I hoped had the answers.
