Overview

The lives and healing arts of Amazonian medicine men

Two Guarani shamans from the rain forest of Paraguay, South America, tell their life stories, revealing how the spirits of the forest taught them to be shamans in service to their communities. The accompanying CD features their own voices singing healing songs and offering sacred prayers. Illustrated with color photographs, Guarani children’s drawings, and rare images of their most sacred objects, this book provides primary documentation of shamanistic practice never revealed before. An audio CD is also included.
