Unusual Book Reading: Tails of a Healer: Animals, Reiki and Shamanism with Author Rose De Dan

Press Release: May 4, 2008

SEATTLE: Author Rose De Dan of Wild Reiki and Shamanic Healing LLC, Seattle, WA, will be appearing at SoulFood Books in Redmond, WA this Thursday, May 8, 7:00-8:00 p.m. She will be reading and performing excerpts from her new book Tails of a Healer: Animals, Reiki and Shamanism, and answering questions from the audience.

Animal lovers have long believed in the power of communicating with their other-legged friends, and Rose De Dan has recorded her journey as a professional healer and animal communicator with the 45 true and heartwarming stories contained in Tails of a Healer: Animals, Reiki & Shamanism. At this book reading event you will meet the colorful and unforgettable animals that populate the pages of this inspiring collection of tales, punctuated by shamanic dramatizations of some of the events, and will be imaginatively swept along on De Dan’s journey as she discovers what happens when worlds collide – human vs. animal, ancient traditions vs. modern world, life vs. death.

Using the ancient techniques of Q’ero shamanism from South America, Reiki from the Far East, and her skills as an animal communicator, De Dan shares her triumphs and her struggles, the highs and the lows of a healer, and relates it to each person’s individual potential for sharing similar experiences and communication with animals.

Featured at the event will be “Two Dogs,” a true story of two lost dogs that found their home again, an early experience of the validity of animal communication for De Dan before it became a part of her professional practice. Also included: “As the Stomach Churns,” a comic chronicle of the madcap adventures of moving with animals, “At the Edge of Two Worlds,” a story of the author’s first encounters with seal pups on the beaches of Alki and the use of Reiki for babysitting; “Guns and Mesas,” a recounting of what happens when a shaman encounters a security check at the airport and the shamanic wedding blessing that the guests at her youngest sister’s wedding will never forget; and “The House That Love Built,” the story of the author’s search for meaning in the death of her father which coincided with the events of 9-11.

Admission is for this book reading event is free and open to the public. For more information contact SoulFood Books, 15748 Redmond Way, Redmond, WA 98052, 425-881-5309.
