Product description

Review

"Nothing is more important for human survival than the preservation of shamanic wisdom and our turning to it for radical healing and radical inspiration. This brave, brilliantly written and exhilarating book by a gifted spiritual pioneer will show you why."
--Andrew Harvey, author of The Hope: A Guide to Sacred Activism and Radical Passion

"Marie-Rose Phan-Lè is a brilliant storyteller. Talking Story is a powerful book infused with beautiful transmissions of knowledge she received from healers around the world. It is touching how these healers trusted Marie-Rose so she could share with us what it means to be a shaman, medium, and healer."
--Sandra Ingerman, MA, author of Soul Retrieval and Medicine for the Earth

"Many dismiss traditional healing as being unscientific or superstitious, while others overly romanticize these healing modalities dismissing much that modern medicine has to offer. The value of Marie-Rose Phan-Lè's perspective is that her feet are planted in both the modern and traditional worldviews. Talking Story is a wonderful bridge that spans across many cultures presenting an expanded view of healing and wellbeing."
--Phil Borges, documentary photographer/filmmaker of Enduring Spirit, Tibet: Culture On The Edge and CRAZYWISE

"Marie-Rose Phan-Lè is a gifted writer and storyteller with inimitable style. In Talking Story she brings to life ancient cultures, traditional wisdom, and the healing arts solely to bring awareness in the hearts of all. She shows that beyond the threshold of analytical sciences is a world waiting to be explored and experienced, that we can immensely benefit from. I am sure this book will enrich many a soul seeking truth beyond the veil."
--Baba Shuddhaanandaa Brahmachari, author of Making Your Mind Your Best

"This beautifully written, magical book is an engaging, honest and often funny recounting of the author's epic journey to document spiritual healing traditions that are in danger of dying out of memory. The story is also an intimate one as author Marie-Rose reluctantly chooses to face her own fears and thus discovers the heart of what it truly means to be a healer, then and now."
--Robin Rose Bennett, herbalist, author of The Gift of Healing Herbs and Healing Magic: A Green Witch Guidebook to Conscious Living

"Talking Story is the extraordinary journey of an unwitting heroine, whose adventure is a testament that the greatest exploration we will ever make is traversing our inner landscape. Such an expedition requires unflinching surrender and a courageous heart. Marie-Rose bravely and fiercely exemplifies both."
---Dr. Elizabeth Kapu'uwailani Lindsey, National Geographic Explorer and award-winning filmmaker of Then There Were None

"Phan-Lè's prose is measured, concise, and unfussy, and she writes introspective and perceptible insights about connecting the experiences of her extraordinary journey to her ordinary life."
--Foreword Reviews
