Lynn Andrews is New York Times and internationally best-selling author of the Medicine Woman series, which chronicles her three decades of study with shaman healers on four continents. Her study of the way of the sacred feminine began with Agnes Whistling Elk and Ruby Plenty Chiefs, Native American healers in northern Canada. Andrews continued her quest for spiritual discovery with a shaman curendera of the Mayan Yucatan, an Aboriginal woman of high degree in the Australian outback, and a Nepalese healer in the foothills of the Himalayas.
She is initiated as a member of the Sisterhood of the Shields, 44 women who are healers from cultures as diverse as Panama, Guatemala, Australia, Nepal, North America, and the Yucatan. Remaining hidden, the Sisterhood has appointed Andrews as its public messenger. In addition to her Medicine Woman series, she has written 19 best-selling books and workbooks about her work with these women and their unique and deeply profound teachings of the sacred feminine that have been practiced, guarded, and handed down from shaman to apprentice, mother to daughter, for over 5,000 years.
Widely acknowledged as a major link between the ancient world of shamanism and modern societies, she is founder of the Lynn Andrews Center for the Sacred Arts and Training and hosts annual live gatherings for shamanic healing and empowerment.
