Annotation: EL MUNDO ES COMO UNO LO SUENA ENSENANZAS CHAMANICASDEL AMAZONAS Y LOS ANDESEn las profundidades de los espesos bosques y en las alturas de los Andes ecuatorianos, los chamanes ensenan la tecnica ancestral de cambiar los suenos, una tradicion que ha mantenido vivas y vigentes culturas como las de los otavalanos, salasacanes y shuaras, a pesar de los siglos de conquista. Ahora estos chamanes enfocan su sabiduria y poder en sanar una nueva enfermedad: la creada por los suenos del mundo industrializado, suenos que pretenden dominar y modificar la naturaleza.En este su tercer libro, sobre la espiritualidad y ecologia nativas, John Perkins narra la historia de esos otables chamanes y de los medicos, psicologos y cientificos norteamericanos que han viajado con el para aprender las tecnicas del cambio de suenos. Las ensenanzas de los chamanes han provocado una revolucion en los conceptos modernos de curacion, del subconsciente, y del poder de cada uno para alterar la realidad individual y colectiva. John Perkins, autor internacionalmente aclamado, estudioso y activista defensor del medio ambiente, ha viajado y vivido en Sudamerica desde 1968, primero como voluntario de los Cuerpos de Paz y mas tarde como consejero de las Naciones Unidas. Es tambien autor de The Stress-Free Habit y Psiconavegacion (Lasser Press, 1995).

Publisher Description:
In his third book on native spirituality and ecology, John Perkins takes fellow travelers deep into the jungles of Ecuador, to the home of the Shuar and their healing shamans, or "curanderos. "Hoping to help the Shuar, who face Western encroachment and the destruction of native forests, Perkins comes to realize that it is the mind and soul of the Western, "developed" cultures that are most in need of help and healing. The Shuar believe that the perceptions of a people, their "dream," creates individual and communal reality. Our distorted vision of the human being at the top of nature's pyramid contrasts vividly with the native dream of an intricate, intimate relationship among all participants in the web of life. Through their music, myth, herbal medicine, and the sacred ceremony of the hallucinogenic plant "ayahuasca," the Shuar invite us into a dream that they have made reality--one that is nourishing and life-sustaining and in which the great privilege of being human is in embracing our role as caretakers of Mother Earth.??? Offers both personal transformation and cultural awakening, since the curanderos of the Shuar-like shamans the world over are catalysts for profound change.??? Explains the life-sustaining world view of an endangered indigenous culture, affirming the U.N. Year of Indigenous People.?
