Publisher Comments:

Traces the journey of a woman as she is initiated into an age-old spiritual tradition. A charismatic couple, Domano and Chea, explain their mission - to hand down the ancient wisdom of their people. She learns how to meditate and hear the Earth Song, and participates in rituals and spirit quests. The author reveals how she began to feel guilty at the increasing duality in her life. Eventually, Whitaker learns to integrate her "real" life with her new knowledge and finds balance and harmony, which she imparts as a shaman.

Synopsis:

This is Kay Whitaker's spellbinding account of her "reluctant" apprenticeship to Domano and Chea Hetaka, two charismatic shamans from the Amazon Basin who come to teach her — a young homemaker — to be a Kala Keh nah seh, a builder of webs of balance," and to hand down the ancient wisdom of their people. In spite of her doubts and fears, Whitaker finds the balance and harmony she was destined to know.

If you're interested in shamanic discovery, this is a very good first-person story of one woman's unexpected initiation. I appreciated her descriptive, emotional writing, her personal, feminine perspective, and the fast-moving narrative - so startling for the reader as to be unimaginable as reality for the writer.
