Read full description of the books:
Having studied with several of the top Andean spiritual teachers have a particular appreciation for the information in this book. This book delves deeply into a lot of the esoteric and less prevalent aspects of the Andean culture and cosmology. It is a perfect supplement for any student of the Andean spiritual teachings. It is dense and packed full of a lot of information that may not appear related. However, in order to understand WHY many of the practices exist, it is essential to understand the history, beliefs and world views that are carefully constructed in this text. this book made many other things made sense in a way that some of my teachers never could or would explain. My work as a healer and teacher benefited greatly from the understandings gained from reading this book. My only comment would be that I am not sure INCA is the correct term- although here, it is probably used more accurately. The culture was an Andean and or Quechuan culture, and the term Inca, if I was taught accurately, refers to the high class of priests or enlightened ones, the spiritual class(?). In this case, it may be an accurate usage, often however, the term Inca seems to get used erroneously;)
Read information about the authorSullivan completed his B.A. in English at Cornell University, studied linguistics at Germany's Heidelberg University, and earned an M.A. in German at the University of Oregon.
In 1985 he backpacked 1000 miles across Oregon's wilderness. His journal of that adventure, "Listening for Coyote", topped the New York Times' year-end review of travel books and was chosen one of the 100 most significant books in Oregon history.
Since then he has written many novels, hiking guidebooks, and historical works. His memoir, "Cabin Fever", describes the 25 summers he and his wife Janell spent building a log cabin by hand along a roadless river in the wilds of Oregon's Coast Range. Each summer he still lives and writes at the cabin.
Sullivan reads in seven languages, plays the pipe organ, undertakes backcountry ski expeditions, and volunteers to support libraries.
