Wizard of the Four Winds: A Shaman's Story is the text that introduced the outside world to shamanic healing in northern Peru. The story of don Eduardo Calderón (who was elevated to almost legendary status as a result of Sharon's research), this book inspired a generation of academics and shamanic seekers alike. Back, finally and by popular demand, this long-awaited and completely revised second edition presents a detailed discussion of Sharon's own experiences as the curandero's apprentice as well as summaries of more than 40 years of scholarship (including Sharon's own extensive work) into the lives and healing arts of other Peruvian shamanic practitioners. More than 70 pages of updated appendices compare and contrast the ritual symbolism of don Eduardo Calderón's mesa with shamanic tools and practices found throughout ancient and modern Mesoamerica and South America. Wizard of the Four Winds: a Shaman's Story is, now more than ever, an indispensable tool for any serious student of Peruvian shamanism!

A collection of student essays that captures the passionate engagement their generation brings to the Harry Potter phenomenon. A Wizard of Their Age began when the students in Cecilia Konchar Farr’s “Six Degrees of Harry Potter” course at St. Catherine University kept finding errors in the available scholarship. These students had been reading Harry Potter for their entire literate lives, and they demanded more attention to the details they found significant. “We can do better than this,” they said. Konchar Farr, two undergraduate teaching assistants, and five student editors decided to test that hypothesis. After issuing a call for contributions, they selected fifteen thoughtful academic essays by students from across the country. These essays examine the Harry Potter books from a variety of perspectives, including literary, historical, cultural, gender, mythological, psychological, theological, and genetic—there is even a nursing care plan for Tom Riddle. Interspersed among the essays are brief vignettes entitled “My Harry Potter Story,” where students write about their personal encounters with the novels. Although a quick Internet search yields a dazzling number of books about Harry Potter, few are as deeply invested or insightful as A Wizard of Their Age. Written and edited by—and for—members of the Harry Potter generation, these essays demonstrate this generation’s passionate engagement with the Harry Potter phenomenon and provide numerous critical insights into the individual novels and the series as a whole.

Geißel in den weniger entwickelten tropischen Ländern sind die (im weitesten Sinne) infektiösen Erkrankungen, und gerade gegen sie vermag die Val ksmedi zi n zumeist weniger auszurichten als unsere hochentwickelte Pharmazie (vgl. H. VELIMIROVIC in diesem Band). Es mag einen "unspezifischen Heiler-Effekt" geben, etwa das, was man hierzulande z. T. etwas abschätzig als die "Droge Arzt" bezeichnet. Wenn man einige Hei 1 er aus einer gegebenen Ethni e quasi als Consi 1 i ari i zu einem Patienten rufen würde, kämen sie, das ist jedenfalls die Erfahrung aus Melanesien, wahrscheinlich selten zu einer einheitlichen Diagnose. Daß sie desungeachtet ihre Rolle als Ärzte, wenn auch selbstverständ lich mit unterschiedlichem Erfolg, ausfüllen, ist vermutlich gerade in dem 'Heiler-Effekt' begründet, zu dessen Wirksamwer den ohne Zweifel eine gehörige Portion Wissen und (im besten Sinne) Intuition, also Heilkunst nötig ist. Die Antwort des menschlichen Organismus auf materielle und immaterielle Stressoren ist trotz der unleugbaren Verschieden heit der Kulturen prinzipiell ähnlich. Wenn aber die unendlich bunt erscheinende Palette der therapeutischen Ansätze nichts destoweniger dazu führt, daß Patienten überall auf der Erde immer wieder von den Heilern ihrer Heimat Behandlung erbitten, müssen Vorgänge eine Rolle spielen, die im Heilungssuchenden selbst, nicht in der Weise der Therapie begründet sind.

Explicitly dealing with the religious aspects of healing and healers, this unique and intriguing book examines illness, healing, and religion in cross-cultural perspective by looking at how sickness is understood and treated in a wide variety of cultures. Centered around three principle themes, the text: A) illustrates how crucial it is to frame illness in a meaningful context in every culture and how this process is almost always bound up with religious, spiritual, and moral concerns; B) shows how many beliefs, strategies, and practices that characterize traditional cultures also appear in Christianity, putting healing in the Christian tradition in a broad, rational context, and; C) discusses the continuities between traditional, explicitly religious, and modern medical cultures -- demonstrating that many features of modern scientific medicine are symbolic and ritualistic, and that many aspects and practices of modern medicine are similar to healing as seen in traditional, pre-scientific medical cultures. For those in the religious, anthropological and medical professions.

The first section of this work is a general review of some of the researches undertaken by the first Europeans who entered the Pacific and who readily perceived the contacts and cultural connections between Asia and Australia, South America and even Africa. The central chapters review the archaeology and associated references in South America with parallels included where appropriate from Asia and more usually with the Ancient Middle East. This section concentrates more on the Inca Origin myths as well as the many references in myth and legend showing that there must have been mariner contacts between Asia and South America probably over 5000 years before the arrival of the Europeans. The middle to last chapters deal with the many parallel cultural aspects that are reflected in the Near Middle East that are most likely the result of this cross-Pacific transfer through Oceania to South America that appear in the available archaeological and iconographical record as well as the evidence preserved in the local oral traditions in myths and legends where applicable.
