Last year my daughter, Coriander and I traveled to the Amazon jungle. This has resulted in my book, The Call of the Spectacled Owl; An Artist’s Journey thru History, the Amazon, and Spirit (with Travel Tips).
I share our adventures learning about the animals and “medicine” of the jungle with our native guide. I tell about swinging on jungle vines, sleeping overnight in a treehouse in the jungle, going piranha fishing, sailing in a canoe thru the night under bamboo and overarching elephant palms, and swimming in the Amazon river with dolphins.
I get into the earth spirituality of the area, exploring the historic Incan beliefs, the mysterious whistling vessels, and our experience in a shamanic ceremony. The book includes information on the two ancient sites we visited, the Temple of the Moon and the Incan Temple of the Sun. Woven in is my observations from visiting various sacred sites around the world and my studies of paganism and earth religion.
The paperback is illustrated with 32 of my line drawings and the cover photo is by Coriander of Coriander Focus Photography. It’s available for $14.99 on Amazon and at the Createspace link here: https://www.createspace.com/6297005
I hope those who are “armchair travelers” will feel like they are traveling along with us, and that it might inspire more adventurous souls to go out and travel the world. Travel broadens the mind!
