The beginning of my second book, Bat Dreams. The first was Gateway Mexico. Two more are in progress in the Nighttime Daydreams quadrilogy. In this episode, I describe the quadrilogy and summarize Gateway Mexico, then launch into the story. It's October 1994 and I've gone to Ecuador for a second time to meet up with my teacher and study ayahuasca shamanism with him. Chapter One describes the first ceremony and flashes back to memories of father-figures in my life. The rainbow serpent, the spirit of the ayahuasca vine, makes an appearance in a vision.
