More Reviews of Love and Spirit Medicine.
"Love and Spirit Medicine is heartfelt and engaging, a fascinating story of one woman's shamanic path to liberation. It provides hard-won insight for others, particularly women searching for identity and healing, who would find themselves with spirit guides, on shamanic journeys, through the ingestion of sacred (psychoactive) mushrooms. Western doctors would do well to try to find commonalities with the shamanic approach Home uses, viewing shamanism and efforts such as Home's shamanic path as a source of convergent validity, not the rejected "other." Shonagh Home shares her personal journey from a dying marriage, through an array of fascinating shamans and other teachers, as a conduit for spirit, and ultimately to a place of self-knowledge and service. Written with humor and infinite heart, "Love and Spirit Medicine" is an immediate classic of transformative personal and spiritual development."

"Shonagh Home's vivid encounters with spirit guides teach her about the shadow side of her psyche. She offers honest accounts of the confusions and misunderstandings that can occur during highly altered states of consciousness and the challenges of finding herself between the worlds. Love and Spirit Medicine is a courageous story of her shamanic initiation and her journey of awakening and empowerment."
-Annie Oak, journalist, filmmaker, and founder of The Women's Visionary Congress
"Love and Spirit Medicine is a poignant and brutally honest memoir about personal empowerment and transformation in a time of rapid global change. Full of humor and heartbreak, one woman's deeply personal journey toward self-discovery becomes a roadmap for individual and collective healing beyond cultural programming. Shonagh Home shows that by trusting inner wisdom and learning from one's shadow, one can see life's fiercest challenges as opportunities for conscious growth. It is a powerful testament for our evolutionary potential."
-Nese Devenot, Founder of the Psychedemia Conference and Contributing Editor for Reality Sandwich
