Swimming with Elephants tells the eccentric, sometimes poignant, and occasionally hilarious experience of a working mother undergoing a bewildering vocational shift from physician to shamanic healer. During that tumultuous period of answering her call, Sarah met an elephant who would become an important spirit companion on her journey, had bones thrown for her by a shaman in South Africa, and traveled to India for an ancient Hindu pilgrimage, where she received the blessing she had been longing for. Ultimately, she discovered an entirely different way of healing, one that she had always aspired to and that enabled her to help those who are suffering.

drawn by the title, surprised by content
Beautiful book. Lovely to sort of be led in thinking of spiritual dimensions like shamans and totems. Perceptive on healing especially mentally. Super relatable. Glad to see author putting medical degree to good work!

Love, love, LOVE this book!
I am going to a book luncheon later this year where Sarah will be speaking, so I decided to listen to the book early in preparation. I LOVED IT. The narrator was fantastic and very easy to listen to - great choice. And more importantly this book resonated with me. I laughed and I cried. I held my breath with anticipation (trying to find times in my day when I could listen to more of it). There is a raw honesty here about one woman’s journey from the medical (cerebral) world to the shamanic (spiritual and soulful) world. Delicious ❤️❤️❤️
