In the critically acclaimed The Rope in the Water , Sylvia Fraser described her three-month pilgrimage to India in search of "something larger than myself, something deeper, something more." In The Green Labyrinth , Fraser continues her journey, this time deep into the jungle of the Amazon in the company of shamans, traditional spiritualists practicing ancient rituals. At the heart of Fraser's quest lies the mind-expanding drug "ayahuasca", a gateway to worlds beyond her own, to a better understanding of the mysteries of existence. Fraser takes us to shamanic sanctuaries that hover at the edge of our modern world, providing a portal to the unknown. Along the way she introduces us to a diverse group of pilgrims searching for their own answers with the help of shamans and ayahuasca. Through meaningful visions and with spiritual guidance, Fraser and her fellow travellers acquire insight into their emotional and psychic lives, and discover that many of the answers they are searching for lie within themselves.

A lovely portrayal of a woman's journey to find spiritual healing and greater conscientiousness. Very scientific information through out, a feel on the history Amazon tribes and their general culture. While it was a mind provoking read, I felt an overall lack of adventure. Though as a journalists point of view and accounts of what really happened during the experience embellishment would be unwanted.

The author has a very poetic with words as portrayed in the first few lines of the book.
