Editorial Reviews

"This is a fabulously and honestly presented Truth. Shaman Maggie addresses student questions in this book but in a way that is beneficial for all. I highly recommend this book for anyone that knows inately... or is seeking for... universal answers and personal power. The most meaningful thing I can say here is AMEN." - Altyerre"I loved this book because the questions I would have asked about life and spirituality were answered simply and completely. There were questions about Shamanism, questions about life and how to live in a way that gives me peace, and even questions about why we are here on this earth now. I loved how the answers were so easy to understand, no matter what a person's background might be. And I love the fact that the answers ring true, as if I already know these things and I'm remembering them again. A lot of books on Shamanism talk about recipes for doing journeys, as if anyone can do these, but nothing on real life and how to grow spiritually and live as full a life as possible. You explain how to really get every moment out of life here and now".- OakalakaleahShaman Maggie comes across as very personable and real. Thank you, Shaman Elder Maggie, and your Spirit Guides, for this book"I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for personal truth and a spiritual path to follow. The book speaks the truth." -Diana Gooch"This is a well-done explanation of Shamanism, and how it can be applied to improving one's life anyway if you're not interested in becoming a Shaman. If you are, this is an excellent beginning point for further study." - Wayne Gallup
