Alberto Villoldo, psychologist, anthropologist and bestselling author, has studied the shamanic healing practices of the Amazon for over 25 years. In this beautifully filmed documentary, he reveals secrets of the jungle's sacred plants and the healers who administer them, deep in the Amazon rainforest. Amazonia chronicles the work of the master shamans of Peru's Madre de Dios River in the Amazon watershed. Dr. Villoldo explains the process and theory of the powerful brew made by the shamans known as Ayahuasca, the "vine of the souls."
