Medicine Woman

 
9780710204318: Medicine Woman

Lynn V. Andrews takes the reader with her as she goes on inward journeys with the help of the Sisterhood of the Shields, and relates the stories of others.

Join her as she is initiated into the Sisterhood and creates her own shield, which will show her the nature of her spiritual path (Spirit Woman). Follow her to the Yucatan, where the medicine wheel leads her, and she is faced with the terrifying reality of the butterfly tree (Jaguar Woman). Enter the Dreamtime with her, where she emerges in medieval England as Catherine, and encounters the Grandmother, who offers to show Andrews how to make her life one of goodness, power, adventure, and love (The Woman of Wyrrd).

Not all these stories describe the author's own spiritual experiences. Meet Sin Coraz?n, an initiate into the Sisterhood, whose husband abandons her. She nearly succumbs to her inner dark power and unleashes her rage on men and the Sisterhood (Dark Sister). Andrews also writes about the elder women of the Sisterhood: their loves, their lives, their losses (Tree of Dreams).

Andrews shows us how to channel our own spiritual and intellectual energy and balance the need for love with the desire for power (Love and Power). She takes the reader on numerous spiritual journeys that inevitably uplift.

Review:

"Medicine Woman has to do with the meaning of life, the role of women, and the wrestling of power away form the forces of evil that hold it." -- Los Angeles Times

"Medicine Woman is the autobiographical account of a woman's search for identity in a Native American culture... What begins as a search for a Native American marriage basket becomes Lynn Andrews' often terrifying journey into the wilderness of Manitoba, where inexplicable events and dangerous encounters serve as testing grounds for Lynn's spiritual journey... In the light of this odyssey, one wonders if Carlos Castaneda and Lynn Andrews have not initiated a new genre of contemporary literature: Visionary Autobiography" -- San Francisco Review of Books

"A statement of what is called for and possible in all of us." -- Sojourner

"First Class... A remarkable adventure into the world of the spirit." -- San Francisco Examiner-Chronicle

"There is much wisdom here... What sometimes appears as madness may contain its own wisdom; and what may sometimes sound like wisdom may be madness. It is precisely this intricate balance that the medicine woman must learn to keep." -- Santa Fe Reporter
