Publishers Weekly review of memoir (Book 1)

Spiritual coach Namou (The Flavor of Cultures) describes her personal journey in this first volume of her four-part memoir. It begins with a phone conversation between Namou and author Lynn Andrews that was an essential part of Namou’s development; quotes and themes taken from this conversation are woven throughout the book, which recounts how Namou processed and came to terms with her childhood arrival in Detroit, Mich., after emigrating from Baghdad at the age of nine.

Andrews encourages Namou to participate in the Mystery School, a lineage of learning based on Native American shamanic teachings, and this brings Namou a sense of release from the traumatization of being suddenly uprooted at such an early age to move to a vastly different culture. This thorough and descriptive first installment includes a deep look into her Iraqi past and Chaldean Christian background, and explores how that spiritual upbringing has influenced her present life. Spiritual terms and symbols that could be new to some readers are explained well throughout the book. Readers interested in personal journeys of faith will be eager to follow Namou along her spiritual path.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0977679047, Paperback)

Life has an odd way of bringing to you what you need when you need it most. Author Weam Namou learns this through her experience with Lynn Andrews shamanic school.

When one day Namou sits down to write her next book, she feels resistance in her fingertips and a void in her spirit. She soon realizes that years of struggling in her writing career, witnessing the war in her birth country, Iraq, and juggling her responsibilities as a housewife and mother has caused her to lose her literary voice.  

On a quest to once more find her voice, she comes across Writing Spirit, a book that rejuvenates her love for her career. When she calls the author, Lynn Andrews, for some literary advice, she has no idea that the one-hour call will lead her to four years of training in Lynn s shamanic school without walls. Here, she will face her innermost fears and heal her deepest wounds, in order to be reborn into a state of new potential.      
                                
Namou's story reveals how to track the events in your life that lead you to your individual truth. As you take her journey through Healing Wisdom for a Wounded World, you see yourself in each page and you witness how ancient teachings helped transform the life of a twenty-first century writer, wife, and mother.
