Daniel Moler, Author
When conscious, I dwell primarily within the Kansas City metropolitan area. I am happily married with two kids, three cats, and five fish. My education consists of two Bachelor’s degrees in Art and English, as well as a Master’s in Liberal Arts with an emphasis in modern/postmodern theory. By day I sometimes work as an adjunct professor, pseudo-project manager, and technical writer to pay the bills. By night I either dive deep into one of the many tomes in my personal library or pound an endless stream of particularly nonsensical thoughts onto the keyboard. Sometimes those bits of nonsense will have a nuance of shape to it, and I’ll turn it into a story. I also like to draw and paint when I am so inclined.
As one can tell from my work, I am very interested in the shamanic arts. I have apprenticed in the Pachakuti Mesa tradition, a form of Peruvian shamanism with lineages in Northern Coastal kamasq curanderismo and Andean Q’ero paqokuna. Additionally, I am a volunteer board member of The Heart of the Healer (THOTH) foundation, a non-profit organization whose mission is to preserve indigenous cultures and restore our Earth. Other than that, one can usually find me tucked away in the dusty confines of a used bookstore somewhere in the trenches of downtown K.C.
Barbara Tedlock, Ph.D., is the granddaughter of an Ojibwe midwife and herbalist and was trained and initiated as a shaman by the K’iche’ Maya of highland Guatemala. She is currently Distinguished Professor of Anthropology at SUNY Buffalo and Research Associate at the School of American Research in Santa Fe, New Mexico. For many years she co-edited The American Anthropologist with her husband, Dennis Tedlock. The author of four previous books and numerous essays, she divides her time between Buffalo, New York, and Santa Fe, New Mexico.Praise for Woman in the Shaman’s Body:
