Most of us would agree with authors Dana and Shana Robinson that relationships play a profoundly important role in our lives. Yet, tragically, many people today are plagued by a deep, pervasive sense of loneliness. Shamanism & the Spirit Mate offers an ancient, time-tested 'cure' for this modern malaise of loneliness and disconnection. The authors examine numerous cultures throughout history and around the world today that ackwledge the existence of divine partners who can help address our deepest needs for relationship, love and healing. Spirit Mates do t replace or supersede any of the existing relationships in our lives. Rather, they have the potential to enrich and expand them. When cultivated through the power of the shamanic journey, our experience with a Spirit Mate can deepen our spiritual connections, assist us in healing practices and inspire creativity in our daily lives. Drawing from the many shamanic workshops they have conducted, the Robinsons offer probing questions and valuable activities to assist the reader in exploring and personalizing the fascinating world of the Spirit Mate.
