51lEOHLwBLL._AA160_Achterberg, Jeanne, Imagery in Healing: Shamanism and Modern Medicine, New Science Library, Boston, MA, 1985.

A classic in the field of alternative medicine, showing how throughout the history of medicine, including the shamanic healing traditions, the Greek tradition of Asclepius, Aristotle and Hippocrates, and the folk and religious healers, the imagination has always been the most powerful healing resource. Unlike the more recent notions, “in shamanic society health is not the absence of feeling; no more so is it the absence of pain. Health is seeking out all of the experiences of Creation and turning them over and over, feeling their texture and multiple meanings. Health is expanding beyond one’s singular state of consciousness to experience the ripples and waves of the universe.” Jeanne Achterberg (1940-2012).

61TKbNoDesL._AA160_Arrien, Angeles, The Four-Fold Way: Walking the Paths of the Warrior, Teacher, Healer and Visionary, Harper, San Francisco, CA, 1993.

“Many native cultures believe that the heart is the bridge between Father Sky and Mother Earth. For these traditions, the four-chambered heart, the source for sustaining emotional and spiritual health, is described as being full, open, clear, and strong. These traditions feel that it is important to check the condition of the four-chambered heart daily, asking: Am I full-hearted, open-hearted, clear-hearted, and strong-hearted?” Angeles Arrien, PhD (1940 – 2014) cultural anthropologist, educator, award-winning author, and consultant, unveils the four archetypal principles of the Native American medicine wheel (Warrior, Teacher, Healer, and Visionary) and the related meditations. “Four Rules For Life: Show up. Pay attention. Tell the truth. Don’t be attached to the results.”
