North Sea Water in My Veins by Imelda Almqvist is a quest for the reconstruction of an indigenous or native spirituality of the Low Countries, covering pre-Christian material from the Netherlands, Belgium and the region just across the German border. Seeking out and documenting ancient gods and goddesses, practices and traditions, this book asks the question: is there enough material for such a reconstruction? The conclusion is a resounding yes! Please note that a Glossary of Dutch words related to native spirituality, and a Rune Summary for the Frisian Rune Row (a Northern region of the Netherlands) are included in this book.
“Imelda's book on the spiritual traditions of the Low Countries is a wonderful contribution to cultural soul recovery, finely streaming together her poly-linguistic research and depth of experiential work. I am glad that she included some of her dreams and personal encounters with the ancient ones.” ― Robert Moss

As children of Mother Earth and Father Sky we owe it to our children and our children’s children (meaning all children in The Human Family) to anchor a collective vision of healing (making whole again what hurts or has fragmented), joyful cooperation, and respectful cultural cross-fertilization (as opposed to competition, one-upmanship and cultural appropriation). It is of utmost importance for our global elders, (those willing), to share their wisdom teachings with younger generations. It is equally important for their life’s work and legacy to be documented and recorded for future generations. Shamans Directory offers both the vision and the infrastructure to make this happen. I am excited and honored to be part of this!

The Gifts of Ma’at by Zahra Indigo Rønlov offers a potent opportunity to learn about and to work with Ma’at, the Egyptian Goddess of Truth, Justice, Harmony, Balance, Reciprocity, Natural Law, and Cosmic Order. Zahra Indigo guides you on an extraordinary inner journey to align you with Truth so that you may move through your days with a heart as light as Ma’at’s feather.
The 42 Negative Confessions, also knows as The Declaration of Innocence, are the confessions a soul must make before the heart is weighed by the scale of Ma’at and one enters into the after life. Zahra Indigo has beautifully transformed these into 42 Positive Declarations to inspire you to live truthfully and light-heartedly. The book contains seven sections explaining the different dimensions of Truth, and takes you on a journey from the individual microcosmos to the macrocosmos at large.
A series of online classes led to the birth of The Gifts of Ma’at book. With the fifth round of classes starting this October (the first time offering the class after the release of her book), and an oracle deck in the making, you are invited to join Zahra Indigo to learn more, align with Ma’at, and create your own ‘PERT EM HRU’ or Book of Becoming Light.
Zahra Indigo brings to us a true gift, inviting us into the mysterious and sacred world of the Egyptian goddess Ma’at. She crafted this book so beautifully with pure poetry and so much feminine energy. This is such a fascinating work to bring through for our times. Zahra Indigo clearly has a strong connection with Ma’at so she could bring through the true magic of this energy so needed in the world today. ~ Sandra Ingerman MA

Known as the ‘keepers of the ancient knowledge,’ the Q’ero Indians of Peru are the most respected mystics of the south-central Andes. In 1996 Joan Parisi Wilcox traveled to the Andes and was able to record the mysteries of kawsay pacha, the multidimensional world of living energy, through intensive interviews with six Q’ero Paqos, masters of the ancient spiritual traditions of Peru.
The Q’ero are known for having preserved the Inca spiritual tradition more purely than any other indigenous population in the Andes. The in-depth interviews presented in this book recount the direct words of these masters so readers can discover for themselves the mind and heart space of these people. Several chapters focus on the work of the mesa or misha, the Andean form of a spiritual medicine bundle, and its use as a conduit for the healing energies of nature. The mesa is called the “heart’s fire” because it represents the finest energy—the energy of compassion—that a Paqo cultivates while walking the sacred path. An Andean paqo provides instructions on how to make, activate, and work with a mesa, and Joan Wilcox provides other practical exercises showing how we can use the power of the Andean spiritual tradition in our own lives.
Joan Parisi Wilcox has given us a mature and sensitive portrait of a mystical system as seen through the eyes of its practitioners, the Q'ero. Written with heart and respect, this book is a gateway for serious seekers to discover the world of living energy and to learn how to live in harmony with nature and each other. ― Deepak Chopra, author of The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success

The challenge for spiritual seekers has always been how to find a reliable, experienced teacher or practitioner—a mystic, shaman, healer, meditation teacher, mentor, guide. The need for a comprehensive directory for spiritual seekers has been acute, and now, through the visionary work of the Shamans Directory Team, the wait is over. Shamans Directory is an impressive resource, and as it continues to grow it will surely be the most comprehensive resource for spiritual seekers of all kinds. The vision of “One Fire, One Medicine” reverberates throughout the approach taken in this Directory. This open-hearted approach reminds me of something an Andean Paqo once said when asked if he minded that people from many cultures were coming to the Andes to learn from him and others. He said that he welcomed them all, for “Our clothes may be different, but we are all human beings,” and the sacred arts he practiced and taught not only benefit all of us, but in effect belong to all of us. That’s what Shamans Directory achieves: providing a resource for feeding the spirit of all of us.
