About the Author
Jaki Daniels lives in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains with her husband of thirty-six years, Chris. Their two grown sons, Colin and Jay, live nearby. Based in Calgary, Canada she has been a natural healing arts practitioner for 27 years. While originally focusing on herbalism, aromatherapy, and natural foods, her practice has grown and evolved to embrace the indigenous medicine-woman healing ways. Having apprenticed in ceremonial protocol with Cree Elder Fishwoman for 14 years she is a Pipe Carrier and Lodge Keeper (sweat lodge), hosting community ceremonies on a regular basis, including an annual Vision Quest with Fishwoman. Jaki offers her unique gifts through her healing practice, teaching, and writing. She released her first book, Heeding the Call, in 2007, and is currently working on her third, tentatively titled The Tranquil Kitchen.

The Medicine Path is an engaging story. Whether you are looking for light read to escape your own daily grind, want to expand your perspective, or you are interested in reading an in depth first person account of a human being walking a spiritual path – this book is a perfect fit. You will get out of it exactly what you are ready to. For me it was both humbling and inspiring to read about this type of service and life. Feeling both the power of everyday miracles and some of the challenges of being human. This book is pointing you to your authentic self, and to see and feel the sacred in every moment of everyday. It’s not an instruction book on how to be a Medicine Woman – it gives you the opportunity to walk a mile in her shoes. Almost. There are many layers in this book and I already look forward to the next time I read it and how deep I get.

An engaging story of a woman trying to walk a path that may seem harder to find in the modern world. The author's story shows that it is possible to find the medicine path and to walk it with integrity, if you can learn to listen to those who hold the wisdom of the natural world, including nature itself. The book is divided into sections so that you can either read it cover to cover or move between the author's personal stories, the teachings she receives from her guides, and the stories of those who have come to her for help. I enjoyed that aspect of the book -- that each section stands on its own and can be read and considered on its own, or can be enjoyed as part of the whole, depending on your own reading style.

An eye opening book on healing, physically and spiritually. Jaki Daniels does a beautiful job in telling us her story, her gifts and her success she has had in helping others. A must read for the Souls that feel there is just something missing in their life in order to heal. Jaki shows us some hope here and perhaps a glimpse into 'medicine' standards of the future for everyone. Thank you Jaki Daniels. I look forward to your next book!

This is a book everybody should read to understand all the possibilities there is to deep healing, at all levels. Thank you for opening our eyes to this world and all these possibilities. This book is like a prayer to what is most beautiful and sacred within us humans and our surroundings.

Every time I pick up The Medicine Path, I get something new from it. Some precious gem of insight that I take away with me and enjoy sitting with and digesting. The book itself is medicine for the spirit.
