A spiritual guide disguised as a novel capable of revealing illuminating prospects on the couple life and the femininity.
Lara is a disheartened woman. Her husband suddenly abandoned her for a younger woman. Desperate, she leaves Milan and, advised by a friend, she leaves for Peru. In contact with a culture and an environment so different from her own, she learns to know herself, becoming strong, independent, feminine and wise. Tata Sabino and Mama Maru, her medicine-healer teachers, guide her in an initiation path that will bring her to overcome trials which she once thought impossible: taming and riding wild animals, looking for visions in the Amazon forest, jumping in freezing lagoons, crossing suspended bridges over an abyss, knowing the sacred sexuality. Until she discovers and makes his own an unknown and more authentic way of being a woman.
The ancient culture of the Andes, contrarily to the Western one, is strongly oriented to the feminine; it claims that the first human being on earth was a woman and has the “Pachamama”, the nature goddess, as the main divinity. It is then a completely different way of understanding society, marriage and sex. Of these Inca traditions, wiped away from the Conquistadores, the Church and the mass media, Hernán Huarache Mamani is a precious guardian and a passionate and fascinating disseminator.
This book of his is an engaging story full of teachings, with references at the same time exotic and familiar, mystic yet quotidian. A spiritual guide disguised as a novel capable of revealing illuminating prospects on the couple life and the femininity.
