Finding Eagle: A Journey Into Modern-Day Shamanism, by Marge Hulburt
Finding Eagle: A Journey into Modern-Day Shamanism offers a rare and candid view of the internal experience of shamanic initiation and healing in modern times. It is the author's story as a scientist, mother, and budding writer who is pulled from depression by the miraculous appearance of a shaman in her life. Unlike more inaccessible stories of those who learn from indigenous shamans, her story begins in a motel room in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The shaman is dressed in blue jeans, his rattle is a box of Tic-Tac's, and his drum is the plastic motel wastebasket. From this beginning, she learns to rely on compassionate healing spirits known to shamans throughout time, she is reconnected with her mother who passed away in her early childhood, and she discovers the purpose of her life. As the foundation is laid for her to become a healer, you will be drawn into an understanding of shamanism and shamanic healing in a modern-day context. You will join her as she learns what the spirits have to say about stepping out of depression, fear, and grief and into a life of purpose. You will experience, from the inside out, a process of awakening and growing into this ancient spiritual practice which is available to each of us in our own way. Finding Eagle is both an example and an invitation to step into your own healing power, whatever path or adventure that may be.
