What does it mean to bring indigenous wisdom to the postmodern world? How do divination and ritual fit into modern society? How does one integrate ancient spiritual teachings into a western mindset while remaining true to the original meaning?
Notes from a Diviner in the Postmodern World: A Handbook for Spirit Workers is a guidebook for both diviners and spirit workers of any tradition. In this book Dintino describes what she calls the landscape of the otherworld, revealed to her through spirits—ancestors, archangels, elemental and light beings—in her divinations.
Whatever your spiritual tradition, there’s always a shared landscape of the otherworld. Understanding the landscape will help you navigate your own spiritual terrain.
Learning how to be an effective diviner and spirit worker also means that you must interact fully with the wisdom of the place where you live, which includes learning from all living things including mountains and water.
This powerful handbook teaches you how to heal your world by exploring inter-dimensional realms and ultimately becoming a spiritual steward of the Earth.
