Within the pages of Heeding the Call you are invited into a sacred circle, where the intimate and personal details of the author's journey to a world of ancient healing practices, shamans, ceremony, and the powerful forces inherent in nature are revealed. Let yourself be carried along as she shares her six-year quest, catalyzed by a mystical experience in Alberta's Rocky Mountains, followed by travels in the US, Mexico and Peru, and culminating in accepting herself as a modern-day medicine woman, willing and able to offer the healing gifts she has been given. As you enter into the events of her story, she gently leads you on a journey of your own in a workbook section offering detailed instructions and drawing on time-honoured indigenous teachings. Step outside the ordinary. Learn how to venture into these otherwise hidden realms and experience for yourself how the shamanic spiritual ways can be a personal doorway to the sacred.
