9780892816590: The Flowers of Wiricuta: A Journey to Shamanic Power with the Huichol Indians of Mexico

 
The author integrates his apprenticeship with Huichol shamans into his inspiring work with terminally ill children and their families.

The Flowers of Wiricuta is the gripping autobiographical account of Tom Pinkson's decade-long immersion in the shamanic traditions of the Huichol tribe of north central Mexico, who have retained their ancient way of life more thoroughly than other indigenous groups, and are known primarily for the use of peyote in their spiritual traditions. Pinkson has successfully integrated their teachings into his work with terminally ill children and their families. His book is a heart-felt record of a personal search for a clearer understanding of the true self.
