Magic Medicine: Homeopathy as Shamanism by Gloria St John.
Book Signing Event-May 25th @11am
In her newly published book, Magic Medicine: Homeopathy as Shamanism, Gloria St John links the centuries-old form of healing - homeopathy with the oldest form of healing on the planet - Shamanism. The surprise is in how she shows that the little white pills in homeopathic remedies pack the same powerful punch as the power animals and nature spirits tapped by shamans. The book also serves as a clear introduction to many processes in homeopathy such as how remedies are discovered and how they are made in laboratories. This highly readable and enjoyable book takes the reader on an easy journey into the world of natural medicine. The price is $20. Available on Amazon.
Gloria St John, who recently returned to Amador County, has practiced homeopathy for 20 years and is known as an excellent clinician as well as a passionate teacher on the subject of self-care and natural medicine. She can be reached firstname.lastname@example.org
