Local Author Publishes Book about Ayahuasca

Dr. Jason Martin, author of the acclaimed novel Voluptua, once again takes the reader deep into the mysteries of Ayahuasca, drawing on his memoirs of the transformative power of shamanism.

Beginning at Machu Picchu and ranging from Massachusetts to Dharamsala and the green jungles of Peru, stories of birth, illness, grief and recovery are woven in a tapestry of rich sights, surprising sounds and powerful ceremonies. In Ayahuasca Nights, Martin reveals insights into the potent healing available to those that choose to embark upon a conversation with the indigenous medicine known as the Grandmother.

Martin has a Ph.D. in French and comparative literature, studied at the Sorbonne and spent considerable time in the Peruvian Amazon working with master shaman Don Agustin Rivas-Vasquez. He operated Star Seed Yoga Center, in Montclair and Bloomfield, for 18 years with his late wife Jyoti Chrystal.
