In most of the spiritual books that I read, the apprentice went to find his or her teacher in remote areas, usually outside the United States. With me, my teachers came to my door - at my workplace. This included a man from India and a Native American man and his female partner. Even my most recent teacher, Lynn V. Andrews, I became her apprentice without having to leave home. (less)

“What’s the use of having a great book if you have a lousy life? These days, especially, having a great life can easily translate into a great book.”
Weam Namou, Healing Wisdom for a Wounded World: My Life-Changing Journey Through a Shamanic School: Book 2

“On January 17, 1991 and for the 43 days that followed, I watched CNN’s live coverage of SCUD missiles and bombs fall over Baghdad like rain; then the 12 ½ years of unjust sanctions that killed approximately a million Iraqis, half of which were children under the age of five; then an unjust attack in 2003 that opened the borders to terrorists from all over the world and reduced the cradle of civilization to piles of rubble. The gov. asked us to support their plan or else be considered anti-American and undemocratic and they ask of us the same today, 25 years later, even though history proved they were pro-profit not pro-life.”
Weam Namou, The Great American Family
