Andy in Shamanic Wisdomkeepers

Andy is featured in "Shamanic Wisdomkeepers" by Tim Freke as a representative of the Celtic Shamanic Tradition. It tells some of the story of how he discovered shamanism and includes an introduction to his teachings.

In it Tim writes:

'Andy Baggott is a Celtic shaman and healer. Like many westerners who have been drawn to Shamanism his life has been an inspiring story of spiritual awakening...Andy's understanding of Shamanism has been shaped by many traditions, but it is his indigenous Celtic tradition which he feels is the ground from which he works. Although often regarded as a "dead" tradition, for Andy Celtic spirituality is still very much alive.'

Other medicine people featured include Jamie Sams (Cherokee and Seneca Traditions), Martin Prechtel (Tzutujil Mayan Tradition), Lama Khemsar Rinpoche (Tibetan Yungdrung Bon Tradition) and Ernesto Alvarado (Apache Tradition).
