Publisher's Summary

In the indigenous cultures of Central America, what western medicine terms a mental illness is understood as signaling the birth of a healer or shaman. Mental disorders are viewed as spiritual emergencies that require support from sages in the community who understand the connection we have to the spirit realm. A shaman walks the thin line of insanity and bliss. There is nothing casual about how this calling presents itself. Those who become shamans must make a sacrifice: The mind must be rewired in order to make room for the soul. This is what happened to Lori Morrison several years ago.
Upon the death of her husband of 23 years, American-born Lori found herself living alone on the edge of a volcanic crater lake in El Salvador in contact with the spirits of hundreds of Mayans trapped beneath the waters waiting to be set free by her. In the throes of a full-blown mental crisis, she went from hospital ER to locked ward, to a daring adventure in the jungles of Colombia, where a team of local brujos helped her complete her transition into the role she currently plays as a healer and spiritual counselor. It is a powerful memoir of a woman coming to recognize herself and gifts that she has previously rejected so she may fulfill her destiny.

A wild spiritual journey!

Superbly written and narrated, this audiobook tells the compelling story of the tumultuous events following the death of Lori’s dear husband, Tino, after his gradual decline in health. It is told from an intimate personal perspective of what it is like to answer “yes” to a psychiatrist asking “Do you hear voices inside your head?” After cycling in and out of the psychiatric “care” system, she is guided to healers who help her realize her soul’s purpose. And what a purpose it is! All I will say is that it involves Mayans, shamans, butterflies, and jaguar spirit guides, but I don’t want to spoil your enjoyment of the enthralling tale of her transformation and the scope of what she learns about life, death and beyond. Definitely the most fascinating and moving true-life story of clairvoyance, out-of-body experience (OBE), and afterlife that I have read so far. Inspiring and uplifting, but not preachy, it will appeal to religious and non-religious readers. Well worth 1 credit and 8+ hours!
