Medicine Woman Series
Lynn V. Andrews takes the reader with her as she goes on inward journeys with the help of the Sisterhood of the Shields, and relates the stories of others.

Join her as she is initiated into the Sisterhood and creates her own shield, which will show her the nature of her spiritual path (Spirit Woman). Follow her to the Yucatan, where the medicine wheel leads her, and she is faced with the terrifying reality of the butterfly tree (Jaguar Woman). Enter the Dreamtime with her, where she emerges in medieval England as Catherine, and encounters the Grandmother, who offers to show Andrews how to make her life one of goodness, power, adventure, and love (The Woman of Wyrrd).

Not all these stories describe the author's own spiritual experiences. Meet Sin Coraz—n, an initiate into the Sisterhood, whose husband abandons her. She nearly succumbs to her inner dark power and unleashes her rage on men and the Sisterhood (Dark Sister). Andrews also writes about the elder women of the Sisterhood: their loves, their lives, their losses (Tree of Dreams).

Andrews shows us how to channel our own spiritual and intellectual energy and balance the need for love with the desire for power (Love and Power). She takes the reader on numerous spiritual journeys that inevitably uplift.

Through the creation of her own shield-both a physical and spiritual tool-she comes to know the full ancient power of women, as well as her own spiritual path. This seminal work will be read and reread by generations to come.

    For nearly two decades since the original publication of Medicine Woman (now in its fortieth printing), Lynn Andrews has interpreted the wisdom of her Native American teachers, offering unique insight to achieve personal growth, spiritual fulfillment, and knowledge of the sacred. After sixteen published books with more than two million copies in print, Andrews is a leading voice in personal development. Now she turns her eye to the changes and transitions each of us must negotiate in daily life.

    In Tree of Dreams, she invites us to explore not only the inevitable process of aging and death, but also the many "little deaths" that occur in life, such as divorce, the loss of a cherished relationship, the unexpected loss of a job, or sudden illness. We see the powerful, independent women who comprise The Sisterhood of the Shields as they gain strength, wisdom, and respect during transition into "elderhood," and we learn how to apply these lessons to our own lives. With disarming candor, the author shares personal spiritual and metaphysical battles as she comes to understand her own shortcomings and failures, which, over time, become the hallmarks of wisdom and the battle scars of the elders.
