I am rediscovering Lynn V. Andrews Medicine Women series. I read her books in the late 1980s and early 1990s after finding her books through synchronicity at a Seattle library. I was drawn to the woman empowerment and shamanic themes and at the time I first discovered Lynn's books, I was exploring Native American cultures.

Now, at the age of 51, I'm seeing different themes in Lynn's book, still focusing on woman empowerment, but from a different perspective. Revisiting these books is bringing imm

"Words are a sacred tool and must be honored as such. When used carefully, words have magical healing properties. When used to judge, to hate, or to separate, words are deadly. The words you will be using in this workbook are your basic tools for healing on this journey. Treat them with respect. Honor your words." ~ Lynn V. Andrews

So I like the book so far. It has horses in it. Horses represent the instinctual wild side of woman.

Shelves: horses, magick-woo
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. I was turned off by her willingness to use Native American lore and secret societies to further her own career. I think the shamans have a sense of humor thought in some the spots they put her in.

I bought this book on a Cole's discount table. It was okay, but... too "far out" for me. Will probably try it again. I did buy the next in the series, which says something, although I don't know what.)"

Great writing, great plot in the ongoing drama. I never could figure out if most of the experiences Lynn writes about are fictional or not! Like most writers, I guess, truth is mixed with imagination.
Not my favorite in this series, but still a good read. Lynn shares her spiritual, mystical world in a powerful and entertaining way.
I can't even remember why I picked this up, but she was kinda hot sh-t back in the 80s. Now it just seems ridiculous.
