What begins as an anthropological study is transformed by a strange coincidence into a mystical journey of life and death. Based on a true first-hand account, The Lightning Spirits will take you into a lost world where myth and reality meet. A journey back in time. The book reveals ancient knowledge hidden in the mythology and ceremonial practices found deep in the mountains of Mexico. Beginning in the microcosm of a small traditional village, this book offers a rare in-depth view of a practicing shaman healer and provides unique insights into the near-death experience. Transcending borders, The Lightning Spirits then journeys into the deep antiquity and global significance of shaman healers worldwide. Much of the information in this book is endangered and of historical significance.
