Presentation on Pablo Amaringo at Canning House 

Wednesday 12th September at 2 Belgrave Square, London SW1X 8PJ

18:30 – 20:00 – FREE EVENT

A drinks reception will follow the talk with Peruvian speciality Pisco Sour being served courtesy of the Peruvian Embassy.

Pablo Amaringo (1938-2009) was an Amazonian shaman who became increasingly concerned by the disappearance of Amazonian ancestral knowledge and the destruction of the rain forest.

 He taught himself to paint and used his talents to teach a new generation to value indigenous ways and develop a new kind of spirituality free from dogma.

This evening’s talk, illustrated by Pablo’s paintings, will explore the stories behind the pictures and what they aim to transmit. We will delve into the world of Amazonian spirits and beings and see what they say about restoring balance to the world.

Peter Cloudsley is a musicologist and author who has worked in Peru since 1980 and co-authored ‘The Ayahuasca Visions of Pablo Amaringo’ published last year.
