"In this book...I have the great honor of introducing you to a number of women about whom I have not previously written, as well as sharing with you additional stories with several of them. Each new story...can be applied to help us move into harmony and a state of grace with the world around us...and the articles are designed to make the wisdom of the Sisterhood of the Shield more accessible in our daily lives."

Lynn Andrews has gathered stories from the most profound teachings she has received over the years from the women of the Sisterhood of the Shield, members of an ancient shamanic society deeply embedded in native cultures and traditions all over the world. These shamanic, philosophical, and inspirational teachings are now condensed into one very important book. Her unique and eloquent narrative style reveals how the application of ancient healing techniques can relate to the modern world for over thirty years, interweaving teachings into aspects of universal truths. Coming Full Circle with Lynn reminds us that there is no beginning and no end to the circle of life. In this time of great fear and confusion in the world, she shows how her teachers have led her- and by extension all of us-to confront her deepest fears and accept without hesitation that there is a spiritual solution to every one of life's problems.

Sky and Earth by Jack Crimmins 255



Early in my work with my teachers in the Sisterhood of the Shields, I dreamed that I would find a way to honor the gifts that these women of such varied cultures had bestowed on me. How could I explain my ability to see lights around people? How could I share the mysteries that I had experienced? The more I looked for answers, the more I looked at the human condition and the meaning of life. I began to explore the lives and teachings of religious people, wise ones, writers, artists of many different beliefs. I knew that I was a writer. I hoped that I could bring a new way of "seeing" to others, so I climbed into the vast expanse of the consciousness and unconsciousness.

Since my first dreams of creating a school and being an author, I have written many books, each centered on a particular theme and different teaching. Each book tells the story of my experiences with teachers. Each story contains a single thread of learning. With this new book, I am able to tie together the fibers of many stories and journeys to share the lessons I have learned with extraordinary women. These very different cultural experiences have empoweered me in my struggle to manifest into words what I have learned and dreamed.

May you have your own dreams and awaken to your new understanding!
