Very captive and tangible stories

First of all a huge thanks to the author for providing me with the copy of the book and secondly a huge hug for being so kind and patient when I have taken so long to leave my review of the book

For me the introduction itself set the tone for the book. In the beginning of the book, there is a very powerful and beautiful story about Shaman Stone Soup and that story simply blew my mind and thereby preparing me for the experience of the book

The book itself introd

I have absolutely no intentions of putting this book back down till I finish reading the last page. Heartwarming true-life accounts of miracles, enlightenment, and spiritual healing.
Constant chills and goosebumps with every turn of the page. This will be a book that will forever stay with my soul. Another stepping stone in my path of enlightenment and understanding.

Read this front to back today, and even after an hour of putting this book down, its contents have stayed with me. Definite feelin

There are two ways of looking at things: one is as if everything is a miracle, and as if everything isn't. The author falls into the former category. I found parts of this book absolutely silly, like claiming to have changed the course of a hurricane, and thinking schizophrenia is a misuse of spiritual connection to negative spirits. I've known people touched by a schizophrenic person in their lives, and it is a tragic mental illness. Overall, it's a quick to read uplifting book, which serves to ...more

I was lucky enough to receive a free copy of Shaman Stone Soup through Goodreads First Reads....The book was an easy read and full of positive messages. It would be a great read for someone new to the concept of Shamanic healing as it is not bogged down with confusing language or concepts. The book gives you a look into the authors personal journey and life experiences and gives you the chance to reevaluate many of your own conclusions about spirituality in general.

I loved Shaman Stone Soup! Shaman Elizabeth Herrera relates her personal experiences to convey a powerful message about miracles in life. She offers a view of miracles from a perspective that is easy to relate to, and shows how they can be experienced by everyone. Reading her book has been a truly uplifting experience!

I received my copy in a first reads giveaway.

I enjoyed reading about Elizabeth’s experiences during shamanic journeying...many thanks x
3 stars = I liked it. It wasn't my favorite book, but at the same time, I'm glad that I had the opportunity to read it. It wouldn't be a book that I would have purchased from the store; I would have preferred to borrow it from the library or buy it for my Kindle.

It is nonfiction. Many of the stories seemed too incredible to be true-to-life experiences. However, I know a small amount about shamanism, and the author's descriptions of her shamanic journeying and experiences rang true based on my p

Well written and very interesting. I have known and worked with a number of shamans and greatly believe in and respect the written that they do. However, I do worry sometimes that people will have too much faith in someone's ability to heal things such as schizophrenia to the point that they drop ask their medications and such. I've seen it happen when so called 'shaman' take advantage to devastating results. The real thing can be amazing, but there are lots of people less ethical. ...more

I was a goodreads giveaway winner of Shaman Stone Soup. Elizabeth Herrera is a Shaman. She has spent the last couple of decades helping people with her Shaman powers. These are the stories of the people she helped. Each chapter ends with a spiritual message that is meant to be healing. I found this book to be pretty good. I learned something about what Shamans do for others.

The reader has to have an open mind for this book. Many people would find this book spiritually challenging. I found it refreshing. Anyone who discovers a spiritual path to a higher good is doing the right thing in my opinion.

Two thumbs up!! I did not really know much about shamanic journeying. The author introduces the topic through beautifully written, easy to read, short stories about her experiences. It is a feel good read!
I won a copy of this book through a goodreads giveaway. I found it uplifting and will probably re-read sections of it when things should look bleak at some point in the future. It is a series of miracle stories, just the thing when you need a little boost of faith. I am glad I received this copy.
I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway. Book was well written. Short, easy to read book. Did not align with my personal spiritual path so I did not finish the book.

“Pain exists only in the mind. Whether an event is real or not doesn’t matter, only that the mind believes it is. Suffering can be suspended by achieving new beliefs and perspectives. We see what we want to see, and feel what we want to feel. Never doubt that the life you lead is the life you want.” 3 likes
“Guilt—the universal punishment. For what? What have you done? Illusions of deeds gone wrong, misspoken words, actions that seemed to kill or harm others, all are dreams of injuries to ourselves and others, and yet they are only dreams. The spirit realm, where all the loved ones wait, is a much more accurate portrayal of yourself. Yet even this is incomplete. You are ultimately only love, extending itself for all of eternity.” 2 likes
