More About This Title Kalahari Bushmen Healers
Twenty Bushman healers from the Kalahari Desert in Botswana share their knowledge and wisdom about healing the human body, mind, and spirit in this guide. Traditional Bushman healing most often involves the intimate touch of shaking bodies aroused by the singing and rhythms of ecstatic dance. Invited by the Bushman to join their dance, the author documents firsthand its color, energy, and power with descriptive text, personal interviews, and exciting photographs of the ceremonies. The combined stories, illustrations, and recording provide a unique insight into this fascinating demonstration of a mystical healing power. It also includes an audio CD.
