Posts on the Andean Cosmovision

Kudos (selfie) and Reflections

I would like to share with you that my book The Andean Cosmovision was selected as the November book of the month at Shaman Portal.  This blog has served as the place for me to publish rough drafts of the chapters of the book.  Most of the information is available here in the blog for free but the book presents it more coherently and clearly and minus the posts that aren’t relevant to the book.  I want very much to get this information out to as many people as possible.  Might you consider giving it to a waiki (friend) as a Christmas present?

A personal reflection on my book.  Sometimes, when I am in a particular state of mind, I think about my book and I am just blown away (generational translation…’amazed’) that I was actually able to put into words the essence of what I have learned from 20 years of exploring the Andean Cosmovision with don Americo.  This evokes in me a great sense of satisfaction and joy.  It certainly took me a long time, several years, to write the book and yet here it is on my bookshelf.  That is where the satisfaction comes in.  The joy I feel comes from some deep place within me and just bubbles up at times.

  1. What a wonderful feeling and gift!

  2. Thank you very much!
    During the last seminar of Don Américo & Gayle in here in Germany this year, your book had been presented to the waikis participating – they were really glad about it.
