Présentation de l'éditeur
Olga Kharitidi's debut book is a remarkable account of her spiritual adventure in snowbound Siberia. Joining an ailing friend on a spontaneous trip to the Atai Mountains, Dr. Kharitidi is taken into apprenticeship by a native Shaman who guides her through bizarre, magical, and often terrifying experiences that open her eyes to a wellspring of deeper learning. On the road to Belovedia, a fabled civilization of highly evolved beings, she encounters revolutionary mystical teachings while discovering ancient secrets of magic and healing. At once a modern odyssey and a timeless dreamscape, Entering the Circle is an inspiring story of personal growth and an insightful work about the limitless potential of human spirit.

Of course the nitty gritty is the shamanism piece. The jury is out on whether or not I find all this part credible. There are an alarming amount of coincidences. Some things aren't clearly explained. It seems odd that Dr. Olga was basically initiated into shamanism, then just went back to her psychiatry work. Equally odd is that she makes a point of saying that shamans have a blood lineage, but makes no mention of hers. I don't know the first thing about shamanism, so I won't say that it's a fantasy. I think it's a huge risk for a psychiatrist to make such claims if there is nothing to back it up. What does she have to gain? I'm just saying I am not sure I am buying the story. It's really interesting and well told though.
Dr. Kharitidi's modern, educated perspective is invaluable. The writing is straightforward and clear, as it recounts her introduction and exposure to that which predated Christianity in Altai. From my own experience, the "shocks" to her rational mind seem most genuine. In the process of telling her story, she encounters that which she can't fit into her professional training and education, as well as the official party line.
I also appreciated her allowing us to look into her professional practice at a state psychiatric hospital in Novosibirsk, a large city in Siberia; and, into her personal process of integrating her vivid, obviously impactful, introduction to shamanism.
After reading this book, I was eager to get (and I did) her next book, which I enjoyed even more, especially as to a deeper look, again, which shared a different perspective concerning certain significant times in world history...different, that is, from what what seems to pass for how it was according to what was taught in the USA for many years.
Thank you Dr. Kharitidi.
While thinking of her adventure as a possible "story," I've discovered an eye-opening reading experience and absorbed many insights that are contained in these pages that are useful to me on a personal level and contributed to my self-healing. Indeed, it's a book that I could not put down and to be read more than once whenever one feels inclined to.
I would certainly recommend this book for those whom are interested in self-healing, transformation, and even about shamanic way of life.
Ms. Kharitidi's prose leaves somewhat to be desired but the book is well-organized and...well the writing gets better as the book progresses.
