Here she tells how she developed a close connection with shamans from Mongolia who visited the United States in 2004. As a result of this connection, she was invited to present at a conference on shamanism in Mongolia. She describes a variety of adventures with shamans in Mongolia, including some in which it appeared to others that she was quite ill. Eventually this led to her receiving initiation into Buryat Mongolian shamanism, although the details of the initiation process will wait for a future interview.
