Overview

We know intuitively that spiritual intelligence exists, but it is often harder for us to understand how this intelligence develops, how it can be shaped, and how it can be used to improve our lives and those of others. Indigenous people have always recognized this intelligence, and have created ways of nurturing spiritual abilities. The exemplary practitioners of these abilities are called shamans, medicine men and women, curanderas and curanderos. Letters to the Medicine Man is a dialogue across the great divide of science and spirit, describing the education of shamanic abilities within the Native American tradition. Written as letters, stories, and exposition, this book describes tbe development of an apprenticeship between Ten White Bears, a shamanic healer and teacher of traditions, and Barbara Kerr, a psychologist and educator of the gifted.
