Healing With Plant Intelligence: A  Report from Ayahuasca

An Abstract for the Society for the Anthropology of Consciousness, March 17-21, UC Berkeley

Professor Richard Doyle

Penn State University




Numerous and diverse reports indicate the efficacy of  shamanic plant adjuncts ( e.g. iboga, ayahuasca, psilocybin) for the care and treatment of addiction, PTSD, cancer, cluster headaches and depression. This paper reports on a  healing of life long asthma and atopic dermatitis in the shamanic context of the contemporary Peruvian Amazon. The paper will suggest that emerging language, concepts and data drawn from the sciences of  plant signaling and behavior regarding "plant intelligence" provides a useful heuristic framework for comprehending and actualizing the healing potentials of visionary plants.
