Deborah Bryon did an amazing job of weaving together teachings from both the Inca and modern day psychology. Tales of her adventures combined with telling stories from her wealth of knowledge of psychology provide marvelous insights. Lessons of the Inca Shamansis a brilliant work which shares deep and rich stories and powerful practices. I loved reading it.The journey began by working with Amaru the powerful snake of the lower world. It continued with Chocachinchi the commanding jaguar of the middle world and Apucheen the great condor of the upper world. The Q’ero shamans connect to these beings with chakra-like centers in the Belly, Heart, and Mind. The Inca shamans have the task of healing their communities and preserving the energy pathways of Pachamama (Mother Earth). They are reaching out to others, including Deborah Bryon, because their spirit journeys have told them that the next set of shamans will come from the modern civilizations of the Western world. Four years of training, from 2005 to 2009, are included in this book. The second book on her work as a shaman is expected in 2013.
