Recommends it for: people into tha woo or interested in shamanism/animism and some of their applications
so when i originally picked up this book 2 years ago i was kinda hungover on a long car ride when i tried to start it... and i remember being quite skeptical about it.. and now that ive finally restarted it and now finished it, i did end up liking it a lot more than i thought i would. it gets kinda cheezy at times, and it gets pretty woo, but not in that annoying newagey yuppie sort of way. there is a lot of wisdom behind what is on the page. cultural appropriation? perhaps. but the disadvantage...more
Andrews wrote a series of books on her experiences with shaman and their associates in the world. Good read, but belief is suspended. Andrews sells artifacts and after each adventure she returns to Beverly Hills or some such high-end society.

Lynn Andrews is the author of the Medicine Woman Series, which chronicles her three decades of study and work with shaman healers on four continents.More about Lynn V. Andrews...
