Review by Lee Prosser - firstname.lastname@example.org
For those interested in the complex topic of shamanic dreaming, this is a concise and well-written approach, filled with keen observations and details. Merilyn Tunneshende is also the author of two other shamanic nonfiction works.
This book details the account of the author under the tutelage of don Juan Matus, the same Toltec shaman who mentored Carlos Castaneda, and the sorceress dona Celestina. The author details what she comes to learn under the guidance of Matus and Celestina. The descriptions are invigorating and the writing is enjoyable. Readers will be amazed at the description of the journey from a peyote pilgrimage in the mountains with the Huichols of western Mexico.
This is a study of mystery and revelation. Exercises are given for gaining experiences through "extra-lucid dreaming." Healing and enlightenment are the goals.
If you are interested in beyond-death states, this is a book which will prove invaluable with its keen insights, exercises, and discussions. Highly recommended for the personal home library, as a special gift for a friend, and definitely as a purchase item for your local Public Library to order for its library patrons.
This is a book to savor and enjoy. Twilight Language of the Nagual is uniquely original, educational, and exciting reading. Tunneshende is a gifted writer who knows her topic completely, and honestly.
