The Book of Snake
*Please note: to order the book, please contact Andrea directly by email. (email@example.com)
The Book of Snake is based upon sixty shamanic meditations as well as a lifetime of dreams and real encounters with snakes at numinous moments in Andrea’s life. With Snake as her guide in the timeless imaginal realms, Andrea learns the etiquette of relating to a creature whose reputation ranges from fearful repulsion to reverential respect. The insights she gains in these meditations are both intensely personal and highly pertinent to our times. Their dialogue through these remarkable adventures explores the deepest interiority of the body and the mysteries of the cosmos. The Book of Snake will alter how you experience your own life-energy along with your perceptions of the world.

In sharing her intimate and multi-layered relationship with Snake, Andrea Mathieson gives us a rich example of the transformation and healing that is possible in interspecies relationships. Magical worlds open when we are willing to step out of ordinary human perception and into these realms. Nancy Windheart, Animal Communicator www.nancywindheart.com
To be pursued by Snake can be terrifying but once we let him take our hand (as the red anaconda took Andrea’s hand in the dream) the transformation of our deepest instinctual impulses becomes the basis for our intuition. Andrea’s journey is both fascinating and unique as she learns about a whole new way of being. Elinor Dickson, Author: Dancing in the Flames and Dancing at the Still Point
Andrea Mathieson has written a deliciously sensual, imaginal book. The body itself becomes the intimate reader, sensing along the way, the true deep nature of the creating wrought by Eros from below. Through tactile listening we come into union with the deepest aspects of the soul revealed through the body by Snake. What he does when invited to awaken the imaginal-real body alters forever how life occurs. Robert Sardello, Ph.D, Author: Silence: The Mystery of Wholeness and Heartfulness
The Snake who comes to us through Andrea Mathieson is quite simply the wisest guide I know. That’s because His wisdom derives from the power of Eros. Like Eros, Snake has been hated, feared and suppressed for millennia. Now, in this moment of global brokenness and volcanic change, His time has come.
