Please join Busboys and Poets Books at our Takoma location as we welcome Javier Regueiro. In this talk Javier will present his two newly published books on San Pedro/Huachuma and Ayahuasca and speak about the plant medicine healing process, its benefits, and challenges. He will devote particular attention to the theme of integration and the issue of safety in plant medicine circles. Drawing from his extensive experience in the plant healing process for both personal healing and learning, Javier will share the knowledge he has gathered through working with hundreds of clients from all over the world over the last 11 years. Copies of both books will be available for purchase and signing.
