When Ellen, a young, successful university professor, meets Hugo, an enigmatic stranger with first-hand knowledge of Peruvian shamanism, her life takes an unexpected twist. 

While dramatic events unfold at the university, Hugo introduces Ellen to ayahuasca, the most powerful healing plant in the Amazon. Opening herself to the call of the wild, Ellen travels to the rainforest, where she participates in ayahuasca ceremonies led by a shaman, stretching her mind and body beyond their limits to attain spiritual awakening.

Blending a satirical look at university life with the power of the jungle, Jason Martin provides fertile ground for readers to journey from one world to the next.
