Ayahuasca, Shamanism and Art – a video gallery of some of my paintings

Ayahuasca, Shamanism and Art - a video gallery of some of my paintingsOver the years, Painting has been important to me. It’s a sort of a meditation, in which I find (as a figure of speech), brings a unity to my mind, a balance of the hemispheres so to speak. I’ve put in the video some of my paintings both on canvas and three dimensional objects. My painting has been inspired by my work with visionary plants and experiences with shamanism. I’m delighted that my artwork has also featured on book covers.

About Howard G Charing

Since the late 90's I have organised journeys with Peter Cloudsley to the Amazon Rainforest and the Andes to work with the shamans and the sacred 'jungle doctors' (healing and visionary plants) of this area. I have written numerous articles about the Amazonian plant medicines, and have worked with some of the most respected shamans in the region. I was baptised into their tribe by the Shipibo Indians in the Amazon, and was initiated into the lineage of the maestros of the Rio Napo in the Upper Amazon. Co-authored the book Plant Spirit Shamanism, published by Destiny Books (USA) with a foreword by the great visionary artist Pablo Amaringo. Co-authored the book 'The Ayahuasca Visions of Pablo Amaringo', published by Inner Traditions (USA) April, 2011, presents a collection of never-before-published paintings by Amaringo. The book illustrated the evolution of Amaringo’s intricate art with 48 full-color reproductions, including detailed explorations of the rich Amazonian mythology underlying each painting. Now available - Fine art giclee prints and reproductions of Pablo Amaringo's beautiful work featured in the new book 'The Ayahuasca Visions of Pablo Amaringo'. http//ayahuasca_visions.imagekind.com

    Finally managed to watch, and your art is very beautiful. To what extent are you working within Shipibo tradition and to what extent are you finding your own way?
