Forever in My Veins: How Film Led Me To The Mysterious World of The African Shaman.
A book written by a South African film maker now living in the United States documenting many ethnographic experiences and encounters with sangomas.
Lionel Friedberg’s extraordinary career exposed him to the incredible wonders of our planet and brought him into close contact with many unforgettable personalities from maverick scientists to politicians, entertainers and people who survived near-death experiences.
His observations have taught him that life is far more complex and infinitely stranger than we can imagine. When he was struck by an unexpected life-threatening illness his efforts to find a way to save his life took him back to Africa where he encountered the age-old rituals and powerful healing methods of African shamans. Their mysterious ways have much to teach us and are as relevant today as they were in ancient times.
