Desert Shamanism was not written originally to share with the world. It was written as a man's personal journal. Bishop Maley has offered us a rare opportunity to travel with him as he goes on his Vision Quest in the Arizona Desert. Armed with a doctorate in theology and the wisdom of Native American Spirituality, he ventures into the desert. His Vision Quest was initiated by his search for the answer to a question. We are invited to travel with him as he speaks to Spirits, questions his sanity, rejoices, suffers and runs the gamut of emotions. At the end of three months in the desert he is blessed with an answer, although not to the original question he asked. He experiences a numinous transformation. The author writes with such honesty and innocence expressed in a unique, beautiful simplistic style. I laughed, cried and at times had to take a deep breath, put the book down and come back to it. I have read Desert Shamanism three times and each time found something new. I give Desert Shaminism the highest recommendation. It is an account of a man's soul in search of the Truth. Mind shaking and profound. A "must read" for everyone.
