Customer Review

on 1 May 2013
And what is that, you may ask? Here's a clue : "Before me stood the Lady, the goddess of my deepest memories. Her hair fell in golden red lights, the color of flames and embers. Her skin was the pale of moonlight. Her eyes reflected the cobalt blue of a deep moutain lake...." Or maybe "....Grandmother pulled a sacred crystal from deep inside her medicine pouch......she placed it carefully on my heart and held it there until I felt its vibrations flow warmly through my body." Etc. Etc. Etc.

In other words, this is new-agey, crystal toting, "good-vibrations", fairy tale, fictional shamanism.

If this kind of feel-good flim-flam appeals to you and makes you think you're Connecting With Nature and your Real Self, or whatever, go ahead and waste your money. Swan around wearing floaty robes and commune with fluffy wolves (see cover of 2003 edition)! If you're interested in real shamanism, steer clear.

If I was an Ameri-Indian I'd be really p****d off at the way my spiritual culture was being trivialised by people who should be writing for Mills and Boone.
