About The Book

Following Lynn V. Andrews on the continuation of her life’s journey as an initiate of a secret organization called the Sisterhood of the Shields, Crystal Woman, the fifth book in the internationally bestselling Medicine Woman series, takes Lynn into Australia and the uncharted territory of the soul.

On a quest to free a story that dwells within her spirit, Lynn V. Andrews goes to Australia where she is initiated in the traditional ceremonies of the First Peoples’ clever women. It is here in the stark desert landscape of the Red Centre, not far from the mysterious Ayers Rock, that this extraordinary woman begins a new cycle in her search for selfhood.
With her Cree mentors, Agnes Whistling Elk and Ruby Plenty Chiefs, by her side, Lynn seeks out Ginevee, a member of the Sisterhood of the Shields and a Koori shamaness. It is Ginevee and numerous other women of high degree who teach Lynn to enter the legendary Dreamtime of the Aboriginal peoples of Australia using crystals as energy links and psychic amplifiers. There she encounters ancient sky beings, evil sorcerers, and animal allies, and visits the hidden places of the psyche—where terror lurks in the conflict between male and female selves, where her healing powers are called upon in a battle between the forces of life and death, and where she discovers the knowledge of becoming a whole person that is essential to us all.

About The Author

The late Lynn V. Andrews was the New York Times and internationally bestselling author of the Medicine Woman series, which chronicles her three decades of study and work with shaman healers on four continents. Her study of the way of the sacred feminine began with Agnes Whistling Elk and Ruby Plenty Chiefs, Indigenous healers in northern Canada. Her quest for spiritual discovery continued with a shaman curandera of the Yucatec Maya people, a Koori Aboriginal woman of high degree in the Australian outback, and a Nepalese healer in the foothills of the Himalayas. Today, Lynn is recognized worldwide as a leader in the fields of spiritual healing and personal empowerment. A shaman healer and mystic, Andrews is widely acknowledged as a major link between the ancient world of shamanism and modern society’s thirst for profound personal healing and a deeper understanding of the pathway to enlightenment.
