Review

I felt as if a whole new world has opened up with astounding possibilities for both communication and personal growth. -- Sharon McCarthy, customer

I have known the animals in this book personally. Reading their stories explained so much about their life's journey. -- Dr. Anna Maria Gardener MA Vet. MB, Holistic Veterinarian

People have always learned about the mysteries of shamanism from stories. The adventures of Carla Person will amaze you -- Tom Cowan, Author of Shamanism as a Spiritual Practice for Daily Life

About the Author

Carla Person is an accomplished animal communicator and shamanic healer whose work has touched hundreds across the globe. Carla has studied with many important humans, but her true teachers are the wise, loving spirits you meet in The Calico Shaman.

Once a marketing manager for Kenner Toys, Carla's own story is a compelling one of a marketing executive who turned her back on the corporate world in order to study core shamanism and live her dream of helping animals. She understands the challenges of being a woman engaged in a spiritual life, and generously shares her personal journey with Calico Shaman readers. Carla teaches and hosts shamanic healing workshops across North America and Europe, as well as from her farm in Veneta, Oregon. She is also the author of the DVD, Speak to My Heart: Carla Person's Step-By-Step Method for Shamanic Animal Communication.

I am a holistic veterinarian and I have worked with Carla personally, for my own animals, and a lot of my clients have also used her with great success. Indeed a couple of my feline clients stories are told in this book, and I greatly enjoyed reading more about their inner lives and shamnistic journeys. Most intriguing!

This book has some wonderful and heart warming stories of animals and also some funny perspectives. I would highly recommend "The Calico Shaman" to anyhow who loves animals, and is interested in connecting with them at a deeper level.

I bought this book because I am an professional animal communicator and I have studied shamanism, but have not used shamanism in my practice. I was curious and also loved the title and the book.

I have been recomending this book to many of my students and friends. This book is so much fun. Each chapter is an amazing adventure with a new animal. The reader journeys with Carla to meet her teachers. The purpose of each journey is to help an animal and their person solve a problem, change a behavior, learn if it is their time to cross over or just understand the animals point of view.

Each case, or story, is an amazing adventure. The book was a very fast read, leaving me wanting more.

I recomend this book to anyone that has an animal companion, that likes animals and/or is interested in learning more about shamanism.

Thank you Carla for sharing your amazing adventures with us.

I purchased this book several months ago. When I first looked at it, I found the drawings crude and the writing simplistic. Now I am grieving the loss of my little girl cat, and I'm finding that this book speaks directly to my heart.

This is NOT "another animal communication book". The stories are so rich in detail, meaning and symbolism and still manage to be both entertaining and informative. This is one that you will read over and over!
