Read an Excerpt

"I was running from my own shadow, and through my fear; my shadow had the upper hand. This time I couldn't run. I had to solemnly live the nightmare. I relied on a grounding intuition that under¬stood that this marsh, this fear, was only one portion of the island. If I could walk in, I could walk back out. There was no quicksand, no swallowing mud, only my annoying distaste for myself. The terrain changed. A gently sloping spine of ten-foot hills rose on both sides. Now my path was more defined. I looked up. A pair of piercing eyes stared back from a mysteriously dark, circular face. The hawk stood still, perched atop a bush, the shield of her cinnamon breast in full view. She wore a dark chocolate cape. Is she a mirage or has she really allowed me to wander so close? I felt a soft strand of hope spiral between us. The young harrier hawk looked like she had been standing there for centuries, waiting for me to pass. The intimacy of the snug valley was consoling. Then she turned her dark face to something over the crest of the hill, opened her wings, and lifted away.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Stacey Couch's Gracious Wild, A Shamanic Journey with Hawks is a fascinating and tender account of her journey into healing which was aided and mentored by the intimate contact she shared with a series of venerable hawks along the way. A highly recommended, beautifully written story of power and transformation: a lens into a world not often seen or heard from." -Kay Kamala, editor for A Journal of Contemporary Shamanism
