In solitude and against terrifying odds [she] has remained faithful to the warriors’ path, and has followed don Juan’s teachings to the letter.
Not since the publication of Carlos Castaneda’s Teachings of Don Juan has there been a book as extraordinary as this- a young woman’s initiation into the world of healers who succeed by ancient lore in curing the diseases that in our world are treated, often less successfully, by drugs, surgery, or psychoanalysis. Florinda Donner immersed herself in the world of sorcery, witchcraft, and healing as the apprentice of a famous healer, Mercedes Peralta, in a small town in northeastern Venezuela.
Donner has succeeded in taking us into the mind and heart of a spiritual healer and illuminating the process, not as an outsider, but as a participant and an initiate.
The Witch’s Dream : Florinda Donner-Grau :
She writes with both remark- able precision and a brilliant flair for the poetry and supernatural complexity of a world in which the healer and the patient relate to one another in the language of sorcery and dreams.
The Witches Dream is a land- mark piece of work, a revelation of the power of the human mind over the human body.
