The Diet and Path of an Amazonian Shaman
by Laurent FONTAINE & Fermín RODRÍGUEZ YUCUNA
In shamanism, there two paths. The first always occurs involuntarily and unexpectedly when one has been chosen by an invisible entity (spirit, ancestor or master of the forest), most often during a traumatic event (illness, accident or Near Death Experience). However, the second path requires that one expresses his will to develop his powers with master shamans by means of rituals and initiation trials. For anyone who has never had the opportunity to be challenged by supernatural entities, the second path not only allows to meet them in order to ask for a spiritual development, but also to recover shamanic powers apparently lost. This is the path that Fermín followed during seven years of dieting and learning incantations, to ‘see’ and ‘extract’ diseases of the body, and even travel as a jaguar in unsuspected worlds.

HEARING OTHERS' VOICES
A transcultural and interdisciplinary series edited by Ruth Finnegan FBA, prize-winning author, publisher and anthropologist for Callender Press, UK. It is designed, in simple and straightforward language, to inform and engage general readers, under-graduates and, above all, young adults and students to reflect on who and where they are and to explore recent advances in thought, unaccountably overlooked areas of the world, and key issues of the day
The first volumes were released in November 2018, preceded by the October launch of the Chinese version of Rob Janoff’s amazing personal account, Taking a bite out off the apple, a graphic designer’s tale, in Chengdu, west China. Less textbooks than sites for reflection and challenge, the series gives readers a unique route into greater awareness of our wonderful world, far and near, east and west, past and present. The series logo has, by his choice, been created specially for Balestier Press by the celebrated designer Rob Janoff, creator of the Apple logo, hopefully a feature that will play well with a young adult computer-mad audience.
