US Review of Books:
The writing is well-researched, eloquent, crisp, concise, and, at times, beautifully poetic. This is an honest, heart-driven account into the reflection of her personal issues. It provides a depth within the education she provides the reader about Iraqi culture including mystical beliefs and traditional healing.

Now imagine being a respected writer who years later has hit a road block. You happen to find a book that resonates with this issue and call up the author, and that call leads to something you could never imagine: shamanic initiation. In between is a juggling of family, life, bicultural challenges, personal growth, a call to bring the Middle East together with creativity, and much more.
Wow. And this writer weaves these various threads flawlessly into a fulfilling story that kept me reading and left me inspired. As a bonus, for those curious about what it’s like to attend Lynn Andrews four year shamanic school, we get an inside look at that as well. Of course there is healing instruction woven within the story, just look and you will find it. Or perhaps it will find you.
Five stars for a well written, inspirational, and entertaining read.
In Healing Wisdom for the Wounded World, Weam Namou shares the memories of her life with heartwarming thoughtfulness. The stories are hand woven, using intrinsic wefts and warps to produce multi layered depths within her daily musings and a lifetime of memories. As Weam Namou shares the lessons she herself has learned from so many of her teachers and family members;I found myself opening up, nodding in recognition. Weam Namou is a complex weaver, sharing her thoughts, feelings and ideas, adding bits of history and interesting facets of cultures throughout her writing.
In Healing Wisdom for the Wounded World, Weam Namou encourages the reader to explore, to excavate the wounds deep within one's self in order to move forward and reach your dream. A person can focus and clarify issues which may be troublesome by using the medicine wheel which is divided into four equal sections, each of the sections representing the four directions, the North (Spiritually), South (physical world) ,West (emotional) and East (mentally). The "wheel" represents balance and connection needed for healing. The wheel is symbolic of the cycle of life, with no beginning nor ending.
I would recommend this eBook to anyone interested learning more about themselves, as well as embracing balance, peace and love.. I found Healing Wisdom for a Wounded World to be educational, intriguing, and easy to read. Weam Namou is an excellent storyteller and writer.I wanted to keep reading her words, to hear her truths, our truths, and to keep learning. I am looking forward to the future books in this series.
