First released in 1988, "Medicine Cards" draws on ancient wisdom and tradition to teach the healing medicine of 52 "power" animals and provide insight into life's purpose on Earth. Author Jamie Sams is of Iroquois and Cherokee descent, serves as a medicine teacher, and has authored several books. She is joined by her co-author, David Carson, who is of Choctaw descent.
“Medicine Cards” was revised and expanded in 1999 to include eight additional power animals, expanding these important Native American teachings even further. The medicine cards discussed in this impressive tome truly pave the way to spiritual healing in ways that you might have never thought possible before. Whether or not you’re looking to the cards to learn a new way to healing or simply want to appreciate and learn from what Native American shamanic traditions can teach us today, this is one set of medicine cards that you simply can’t pass up.
