"The Woman In The Shaman's Body"
I was researching something and stumbled upon this book called "The Woman In The Shaman's Body: Reclaiming The Feminine In Religion And Medicine." by Barbara Tedlock Phd.
Archeologist's had found during an excavation a particular burial-where a spearhead had been placed near the head of the deceased and the body of a fox was placed in the hand. The body had been painted red over sixty thousand years ago. There was no doubt due to the clues the body was of a shaman, but the skeletal analysis revealed it was a woman. It is interesting to note that the oldest skeletal remains of a shaman belong to a woman.
I do not have this book but I am interested in it being a woman myself to see the shaman through the feminine. To learn about the moon cycle, and midwifery.
