5.0 out of 5 stars White Eagle Medicine Wheel 27 Mar 2007
This is a superb set of book and cards that introduces the beginner to the Medicine Wheel and also gives the more experienced practitioner much to think about. It is well written and unambiguous, guiding the student through the three stages of Apprentice, Student and Elder. The cards are beautifully illustrated and fully explained in the text. Sample readings enhance the value of this remarkable resource.

I have used this for myself and other people, and it can be useful at the right time. It is not the most insightful or in depth of these types of products but sits happily in the middle of the available options.

2.0 out of 5 stars Beginning Shamanism (Not Native American or Animal) 6 Jun 2005
By D. W. Carper - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
"White Eagle Medicine Wheel: A Native American Way of Life" by Wa-Na-Nee-Chee is an excellent introduction to the tools that shamans use. This book is divided into learning from three groups - animals, grandmothers and grandfathers, and totems. In addition, Wa-Na-Nee-Chee inserts himself into the book to guide the reader into the inner mysteries of shamanism. By doing the card spreads and readings, the reader has a safe way to begin the practice of shamanism. The reader can discover their own meanings of each concept that "White Eagle Medicine Wheel" presents.

Although, Wa-Na-Nee-Chee presents his book and card set as "Native American" wisdom, people would do better by learning the cultures of specific tribes. Medicine Wheels are usually found in Plains Cultures, and Totem Poles in only Northwest American Cultures. You would not find the two together in the same culture, as the author seems to imply.

Although, the writings of the animals are similar to "Medicine Cards" by David Carson and Jaime Sams, the beautiful cards do offer an intuitive way to know the animals. In addition, the animal teachings can be read alone or with teachings such as `record keeping' and `birthing'. To learn how to integrate animals into a shamanistic practice, the reader is well served by this book. However, if the reader is interested in learning more about animals or Native American cultures, they should seek out other books instead of this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love these cards! 27 July 2002
By Annie Zalezsak - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
They are beautiful. Very colourful, with detail, lots of symbology and meaning. The book is easy to read from cover to cover, and as a reference book. I highly recommend this set over the others that I've seen.

5.0 out of 5 stars answered my question while other cards could not 9 May 2007
By pwindsinspirations - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Every one has their own opinion which can make or ruin the outcome of a reading. Go into it thinking it is silly it will turn silly. If you open yourself to the deck, the meanings will come forth for you. Being of open mind makes the deck work, not just the cards themselves tho your reaction to them can aid in the discovery.... I was needing an answer that I could not get from my other decks.(not even Jamie sams) WHY? It was the pictures in this one that I found warm, inviting and calmer because the colors on the cards were comfortable. I sat down with these and opened my energy to them, gave of myself and the cards gave back. I AM A PROUD OWNER, (or maybe owned by,) OF THESE CARDS. What I have been taught by these cards I will cherish for as long as the cards choose to stay with me. I almost put them up for sale till I had a warm feeling come over me and I decided to at least try them. I am now making a beaded pouch to keep them in. DO not listen to others until you yourself have opened up to the energy of these cards which will mix with your own.
