A powerful debut from one of the world's most respected shamanic teachers, following Marcela Lobos's journey in this world and the world of spirit.

The stress, conflict, and crises of the outer world are a signal: the time has come to awaken your inner shaman. However, you don't need to be initiated into arcane mysteries to answer the call from Spirit. In this book, Marcela Lobos reveals how to use the maps offered by the shamanic Medicine Wheel and the hero's journey to activate your inner wisdom and live a self-realized existence of discovery, healing, and wholeness.

From her childhood in a war-torn country to her initiation with the shamans of the Andes and her life today as a teacher and medicine woman, Marcela's story offers a flesh-and-bones context for each step on the archetypal journey to Self. It is also an invitation to step out from your ordinary life and take the first steps on your own quest for spiritual understanding and deep transformation: to learn to walk the Medicine Path and to find your own power and inner beauty.

About the Author

Marcela Lobos has been initiated in the healing and spiritual traditions of the Amazon and the Andes. She was born and raised in Chile, where she leads expeditions, working with women shamans who belong to a matriarchal society that still holds the wisdom and passion of Mother Earth. She is senior teacher at the Four Winds Society and is married to its founder, Alberto Villoldo. Together they travel throughout the United States and Europe, teaching the wisdom of the Medicine Wheel. They founded Los Cuatro Caminos in South America to share the same wisdom in Spanish. Marcela is passionate about taking women through rites of passage that allow them to find their power, grace, and wisdom.
