An intimate memoir of healing and transformation

brave, brilliantly written and exhilirating Andrew Harvey, Author

In Hawaii, when an invitation is extended, the host or hostess will say, ‘Come over and let’s talk story.’ Talking story is about taking the time to linger over the details of the mundane, to ponder the realms of Talking Story: The Bookthe profound, and to surrender any structure of time or agenda. It is practicing the art of listening and of being present.

Based on Phan-Lê’s award-winning documentary film of the same name, Talking Story invites readers to journey with Phan-Lê as she explores some of the richest spiritual traditions in the world, witnessing different forms of shamanism, spirit-channeling, plant medicine, and divination. The book allows readers to enter into a world that most people will never have the opportunity to explore, by offering an intimate experience of ancient healing traditions and the profound events leading to Phan-Lê’s personal transformation as the journey progressed. Talking Story is the winner of the Nautilus Gold Award and Bookvana Book Award.
