Entering the Circle: Ancient Secrets of Siberian Wisdom Discovered by a Russian Psychiatrist
A strange (and purportedly non-fiction) memoir about a Russian psychiatrist’s adventure in treating a Siberian shaman whom she initially diagnoses as schizophrenic. Turns out her story becomes this spiritual sci-fi epic that draws her in to generational shamanic power struggles, spirit channeling, astral travel, parallel realities, and secret Russian time-travel experiments. I know.
