About Kris Deva North and Anamarta:
Kris is the author of Taoist Medicine Wheel and co-author with Mantak Chia of Taoist Shaman. He grew up in Kenya, being in contact with ‘Medicine Men’, and at age fifteen the Wakamba tribe initiated him as an honorary member. Dancing in their drum-circles he witnessed the fire-bath, where adepts fell in flames and were unharmed. His experiences living with Kali-worshippers of Nepal; travelling with a Thai Buddhist monk; satsang with Shiva Saddhus in the Himalaya, Shamans of Africa, North America and Hawaii, and Aboriginal men of high degree in Australia; darshan with the Dalai Lama; witnessing last rites in Varanasi and puja with the Brahmins of Pushkar; and practising taoist, tantric and shamanic meditations and teachings on death, life and beyond, in jungle, mountains, city, beach and desert.
Anamarta at an early age became aware of the subtle energies and her own ability to commune with Spirit. Her grandmother initiated her into the family lineage of esoteric practitioners. Shamanic practices and ceremony has been part of her life through her grandmother, and still have a big influence on her Jade Circle work with women. Nowadays, impelled by her free spirit, Anamarta travels from the Indian desert to Hawaiian beaches, from Irish Celtic to South American shamanic lodges, embracing with gratitude the opportunities to share, and to learn tribal and ancient rituals from women of different cultures across the world.
Between them they cover Shamanic traditions from Australia to Hawaii.
