Marcela Lobos is the author of Awakening Your Inner Shaman, a book we featured in an earlier Review and which proved very popular. This is her follow-up where she takes a closer look at the 10 rites of the Munay-Ki, which she describes in the subtitle as 10 Shamanic Initiations to Heal Past Wounds, Awaken Your Conscious Evolution and Reveal Your Destiny. It’s both a personal journey where we get insights into her own initiation into Andean shamanic teaching and a guide to being able to benefit from these teachings ourselves. She invites us to join her in exploring sacred ways to transform trauma and suffering into wisdom and joy and to understand our place in the cosmos. She also gives examples of this work in the stories she tells of her students and the transformations they have undergone. The book includes a fascinating introduction from Alberto Villoldo, who also happens to be her teacher and her husband!
