Ayahuasca Awakening, A Guide to Self-Discovery, Self-Mastery and Self-Care Volume One and Volume Two
We are in the middle of what appears to be a global awakening of consciousness, and there seems to be little knowledge available for those wishing to understand the “territory” of the self, the energetic, transpersonal realms, and how to wisely manage care of body, soul, and spirit along the way.
Volume One: Self-Discovery and Self-Mastery explores the mystery of incarnation, the “maps” of the self, emerging paradigms of consciousness, the role of the Light and shadow in spiritual development, cycles of change, mediumship, the power of the will and restoring authenticity. FRIESENPRESS
Volume Two: Self-Care and The Circle of Wholeness presents the four-fold practice of self-care; the principles of self-awareness, self-love, self-respect, and self-responsibility. This volume describes in detail how the practice of these four principles can assist in achieving and maintaining greater health and well-being on all levels: physical, mental, emotional, creative, and spiritual. The reader is invited to walk the Circle of Wholeness, discovering the body/mind/soul connection to nature, the environment and community as well as learning how healthy habits, wholesome lifestyle patterns, interpersonal relationships, and everyday choices can enhance well-being.

Ayahuasca Awakenings: Interview with Rev Dr. Jessica Rochester
Ayahuasca Awakening, A Guide to Self-Discovery, Self-Mastery and Self-Care, Volumes One and Two, were written in response to frequent requests for me to put into a “guidebook” the theories and concepts that I teach. It is my sincere hope that these books will provide readers with the information they need to navigate their personal journey of self-discovery. Jessica Rochester D.Div. March 4, 2022
