With captivating lyricism, Amazon Wisdom Keeper transports us into the multicultural upbringing and transformation of Loraine Van Tuyl, a graduate psychology student and budding shamanic healer who's blindsided by startling visions, elusive drumming, and her inseverable mystical ties to the Amazon rainforest of her native Suriname.
Is she in the wrong field, or did her childhood dreams, imaginary guides, and premonitions somehow prepare her for these challenges? Did Suriname's military coup and her family's uprooting move to the US rob her from all that she knew and loved at thirteen to help reveal her soul's purpose, or is she losing her mind by entertaining far-fetched questions and hunches that can't be answered or proven--like wondering if her perplexing life story is shedding light on the double-binds in her field on purpose, and suspecting that her soul's daunting blue print was plotted long before she was even born? Van Tuyl wrestles with these questions and more as she embarks upon her risky quest, enduring test upon test in search of her true self and calling while enrolled in a rigorous academic program that regards intuitive healing methods as unscientific--and even unethical.
