Wizard of the Four Winds: A Shaman's Story is the text that introduced the outside world to shamanic healing in northern Peru. The story of don Eduardo Calderón (who was elevated to almost legendary status as a result of Sharon's research), this book inspired a generation of academics and shamanic seekers alike. Back, finally and by popular demand, this long-awaited and completely revised second edition presents a detailed discussion of Sharon's own experiences as the curandero's apprentice as well as summaries of more than 40 years of scholarship (including Sharon's own extensive work) into the lives and healing arts of other Peruvian shamanic practitioners. More than 70 pages of updated appendices compare and contrast the ritual symbolism of don Eduardo Calderón's mesa with shamanic tools and practices found throughout ancient and modern Mesoamerica and South America. Wizard of the Four Winds: a Shaman's Story is, now more than ever, an indispensable tool for any serious student of Peruvian shamanism!

A collection of student essays that captures the passionate engagement their generation brings to the Harry Potter phenomenon. A Wizard of Their Age began when the students in Cecilia Konchar Farrs Six Degrees of Harry Potter course at St. Catherine University kept finding errors in the available scholarship. These students had been reading Harry Potter for their entire literate lives, and they demanded more attention to the details they found significant. We can do better than this, they said. Konchar Farr, two undergraduate teaching assistants, and five student editors decided to test that hypothesis. After issuing a call for contributions, they selected fifteen thoughtful academic essays by students from across the country. These essays examine the Harry Potter books from a variety of perspectives, including literary, historical, cultural, gender, mythological, psychological, theological, and geneticthere is even a nursing care plan for Tom Riddle. Interspersed among the essays are brief vignettes entitled My Harry Potter Story, where students write about their personal encounters with the novels. Although a quick Internet search yields a dazzling number of books about Harry Potter, few are as deeply invested or insightful as A Wizard of Their Age. Written and edited byand formembers of the Harry Potter generation, these essays demonstrate this generations passionate engagement with the Harry Potter phenomenon and provide numerous critical insights into the individual novels and the series as a whole.
Ever wish to ride upon the wings of an angel? Ever wish to be friends with a whimsical gnome? Ever wish to be a part of a world where magic rules in the place of law? Of course you have. These wishes are better known as fantasies or dreams as dreams help us to live a more fanciful life as our lives might not be that of which we had hoped. Fantasies... Thoughts we can only dare to dream as the dream may never come true but for one boy it has... Burris Samson is a magical boy of eleven, going on twenty. A boy put in the position to decide the fate of a parallel world of wizardry, creatures of fantasy’s belief and so far, has done what most men, kings and warriors fear to dare. Burris Samson accepts the challenges of an alternate world without prize but will come to discover more than he bargained for. Death’s wish of a love returned. A lost desire to know the man of whom he thought had abandoned he and his mother long before his birth. A journey he heavies, not just for the world whom appointed him but a journey of self, which he still fights alongside the magical friends he has made throughout his fantastical dream.
Explicitly dealing with the religious aspects of healing and healers, this unique and intriguing book examines illness, healing, and religion in cross-cultural perspective by looking at how sickness is understood and treated in a wide variety of cultures. Centered around three principle themes, the text: A) illustrates how crucial it is to frame illness in a meaningful context in every culture and how this process is almost always bound up with religious, spiritual, and moral concerns; B) shows how many beliefs, strategies, and practices that characterize traditional cultures also appear in Christianity, putting healing in the Christian tradition in a broad, rational context, and; C) discusses the continuities between traditional, explicitly religious, and modern medical cultures -- demonstrating that many features of modern scientific medicine are symbolic and ritualistic, and that many aspects and practices of modern medicine are similar to healing as seen in traditional, pre-scientific medical cultures. For those in the religious, anthropological and medical professions.
