Paleoanthropologist, Hank Wesselman, first encountered traditional shamans in his fieldwork exploring eastern Africa’s Great Rift Valley in search of answers to the mystery of human origins. Hank is also an author, teacher, and shamanic practitioner, now in the 30th year of his apprenticeship. The books in his autobiographical trilogy—Spiritwalker, Medicinemaker, and Visionseeker—have been published in 13 languages and reveal the nature of his initiation into the shaman’s world of mystery and magic. Hank is also the author of The Journey to the Sacred Garden, Spirit Medicine and The Spiritwalker Teachings both with his wife, Jill Kuykendall, Awakening to the Spirit World with Sandra Ingerman, and now with his recent book The Bowl of Light.
Hank lives with his family on their farm in Honaunau on Hawai’i Island. His new book gives us a privileged look into the mind of an authentic, Hawaiian kahuna mystic, Hale Makua, and provides us with insights into the end of this cycle of ages and the beginning of the next.
