Told from the perspective of a shaman healer, this unique anthology reinvents old stories and creates new ones designed to guide and inspire readers in their own personal spiritual quests. In the manner of old-time teachings, ancient wisdom is revealed through poetry and fairy tales. In this telling, Cinderella, here named Ashera for the cooking ashes, chooses not to marry her prince and instead becomes an apprentice to a powerful healer. The poem, Gifts, offers an insightful perspective on mystical thinking. Like a kaleidoscope coming into focus, each entry reveals layer upon layer of depth. Some of the stories are lighthearted and fun while others are darker and more serious, yet all are thoroughly entertaining. This book is truly a delightful journey into the magical world of the hero/heroine with its potential for healing, wholeness, and adventure.
