"In the West, we’re accustomed to looking to doctors and experts to guide us in our healing, growth, and learning. Our schools, businesses, religions, and government are hierarchical. In the Amazon, however, there are no levels of management between us and Spirit. The shaman—the wise old man or woman—is honored as a healer but is not regarded as superior to other members of the village. The shaman is simply a skilled facilitator who interacts with both the visible and invisible worlds to help restore balance to body, mind, and soul.
The message of One Spirit Medicine is that you don’t need to track down a shaman to find Spirit, or look outside yourself to find health. You only have to look within. That’s where you will receive One Spirit Medicine.
If you have the courage, One Spirit Medicine can pull you into an entirely different life, one with new health, new wisdom, new activities, new relationships, new opportunities. You’ll begin to feel more at home in your own skin. Changes you make will stick, and nothing will deter you from following your dreams."
