In 2009, Andrew Osta has practiced eastern spirituality and plant shamanism for over 8 years before finally going to Iquitos, Peru to study shamanism formally. Before leaving, Andrew heard a voice within that told him to record all of his experiences and make a book. This is what Andrew did from day one. Shamans and Healers is the chronological record of that journey, composed from hand-written notes. The book was written without any agenda whatsoever, which makes it unique and unpredictable.
Shamans and Healers may well be the only book on the subject of shamanism that contains the real names and photographs of everyone involved. This is extremely important for anyone considering a shamanic apprenticeship, as certain people cannot be trusted. The author is not affiliated with any shaman or retreat center, and does not seek to promote shamanism for personal gains. Most books dealing with Amazonian Shamanism seek to promote jungle retreats with a particular shaman, from which the author gets a cut. This is not the case with Shamans and Healers. There is no hidden agenda with this book. The only purpose of the book is to make the truth known, for better or for worse.
The book covers a period of roughly 10 months, 7 of which were spent in Iquitos, Peru, and 3 in Mexico. The following 3 years are described in Andrew Osta’s brand new book, “Walk in The Light: Holy Teachings for Modern Times”. This new book will be available on Amazon.com in April 2014. Both books may be special ordered in bulk by contacting the author directly. Order 10 or more copies of a book and get it for only $10 each, US shipping included.
I hope this book will be an enjoyable read and a blessing for you

What the Readers Say
I recommend anyone who is interested in Peruvian shamanism to read this book. Mr. Osta gives a firsthand account of his travels in Peru and the time spent with traditional healers. You feel like you get to know him on a personal level because of his candid writing style. It is an invaluable resource for anyone who’s considering traveling to Peru in search of traditional healing.
This book is a must read by anyone who has been in the Amazon with Shamans or who is going there. The account is the most honest and truthful written by anyone I have read. First of all, he shed’s light on his own experience in a clear and lucid way. Without realizing it, I saw that he has covered many issues that arise for many westerners who travel to Iquitos , without any form of judgement and at a guess, maybe Peruvians too!
The style of writing is so easy to read, adventurous and flowing like the Amazon itself! If one could say, that this book is meant to be written, I would say that. If one could say, suspend all judgement and read this, not in any way as a determent to Shamanic exploration but as a genuine story of a person searching for happiness and peace, then Read On! Prepare to be Surprised! Although I mention Peru, Andrew travels on to Mexico, where the same intense and luminous quality is present in his findings there. Its also a modern day Love Story, a Love story that will also break the mould of Modern times, shedding Light to the paradox of relationships today. Although the final chapter will undoubtedly rock the boat for many, he gives details of how to put his findings into practice! A fantastic Book read front to back in record time!
