Book Review: Elemental Shaman: One Man’s Journey into the Heart of Humanity, Spirituality & Ecology by Omar W. Rosales

Posted August 9, 2019

A delightful true story of Omar’s exploration into four ancient healing traditions, including Toltec, Cherokee, Maya, and Buddhist. These adventures started as Omar searches for a cause and cure for his mother’s illness. I loved how the author interspersed cultural tidbits and historical facts in among the fascinating recount of the places, people, and sights through which he journeyed.

From harrowing near misses to charming interactions, these tales kept me engaged during travels to and from Winnipeg to support my mom during her cataract surgery. I am grateful that my mom’s health concerns were more routine and mundane than Omar’s. A fun summer read.
