From Shadows to Light
|Language of origin
From the middle-class districts of Paris to the Brazilian favelas, from the suburbs of Medellin to the Amazon jungle, and the Peruvian mountains to the North American plains, François Demange tells the amazing story of his personal and spiritual evolution.
As a young traveler, he wanders throughout the Orient in search of powerful experiences with nature and psychotropic plants. François then returns to Paris and becomes a heroin addict. He immigrates to Colombia, where he falls into a downward spiral of cocaine abuse and survives an extreme overdose. His quest for personal healing – and the healing of others – leads him to the teachings of shamans from various cultures, extraordinary experiences, and an ever-intensifying life. A captivating story.
