"A landmark application of (shamanic) wisdom to early developmental wounding where the ills of society begin. Anyone interested in the future of psychology should read this book."

Larry Dossey, MD,
Author of Prayer Is Good Medicine

"Shamans in indigenous cultures were and are also the psychologists of the community. In our culture we have split the roles. It’s time to marry the system together, and Jeannette Gagan, through her expertise, shows us how."

Sandra Ingerman, MA,
Author of Soul Retrieval, Mending the Fragmented Self

"This phenomenal book…shows how the separating and controlling energy of violence transforms into healing unity. This is ‘must read” as we work toward a world of illumination and cooperation for the coming millennium.”

Twylah Nitsch
Seneca Elder and granddaughter of Moses and Alice Shongo

"In these times of spiritual awakening, this book serves as a beacon lighting the path, unifying into one complete circle the cycles of pain into the realities of healing body, mind, and spirit.

Grandmother Waynonah Two Worlds
Native American Elder of the Bear Clan Lodge

"Impressive in scope and depth, this text provides a new way of looking at the origins of psychotherapy and an understanding of shamanic healing in terms that are relevant to contemporary culture and psychology."

Larry G. Peters, PhD,
Psychologist, ethnologist, and professor
