Deborah Bryon describes her ongoing experiences, lessons, and initiations she receives from Inca shamans in Peru. The central teachings the shamans now wish to pass on to Western culture include the interconnectedness of all creatures (ordinary and spiritual) and our connection with Pachamama (Mother Earth).
The book continues the story of Dr. Bryon's personal journey as she receives more training with the medicine people of the Andes. Included in the training are sacred initiation rites where she receives energy from the mountain spirits. She also participates in dialogs with the spirits who are allies of the healers she is working with.
