The 4 Altars is more than a book, it is a guide which enables us to walk from the unreal to the real, to get to know ourselves better, and be better able to develop our awareness. Rooted in the structure of the 4 elements and drawing on Alonso's 40 plus years of working with sacred plants and walking a sacred path, The 4 Altars, is truly a book of liberation. It was an honour to be able to work on the English edition and publication of this book and it is with great pleasure I offer this through my website. In my opinion, it is essential reading for anyone who wishes to understand the way of sacred plants and the development of consciousness. All proceeds (100%) of sales from this book go to support the Bahuaja Conservation Area in the Peruvian Amazon.
