Free as a Wolf – A quest for happiness through Shamanism

My book
“Free as a Wolf – A quest for happiness through Shamanism”,
has been published in France in 2013 and received great reviews.
The English version is now finally available on Amazon (hard copy and kindle version)!


“Can we completely heal from our past wounds? Can we overcome our fears and reinvent our life? Can we discover true Love, towards ourselves and others? In other words, can we simply aspire to a simple and authentic happiness, and a true sense of freedom?

The author tries to answer these fundamental questions, by recounting his own journey: a sincere testimony of a personal quest, interspersed with questions and doubts, but also with extraordinary moments and profound realizations. In particular, he recounts how, thanks to shamanic experiences in Peru and the Amazon, he was able to achieve this coveted inner peace. In this fascinating story, he tells of his work with the Ayahuasca and San Pedro plants, which helped him find the inspiration for this radical transformation.

Many books have been written about experiences with visionary plants, but fewer tell about their integration into our daily life. More than just a work on shamanism, this book presents a positive approach to life, pragmatic and concrete. It describes a philosophy applicable to our Western society, to help us live more in harmony and get back to essentials.

Themes covered in this book: Ayahuasca and San Pedro experiences; healing childhood trauma, low self-esteem, marital crisis, auto-immune diseases and relationship issues; following a healer’s path; reconnecting to self-love and acceptance.”


Amazon comments:

★★★★★ “A beautifully written book about self discovery through shamanism.”
Frederic Calendini has written a beautiful, honest recount of his path of shamanism. He bravely moves through the mysterious process of self-encounter and discovery with plant medicines. Showing us his hard won insights, and the process of integrating the lessons in his daily life.
In it, I found lessons that have helped me move through some of my most difficult times. I recommend this book for anyone who is looking to move past traumas, blockages, to bring a better understanding to oneself, and anyone looking to use plant medicine and to begin to integrate their experience.

★★★★★ “Very powerful!”
A very authentic journey of self love. I was fearful of plant medicine and shamanism. Not after reading the book, it’s a path…simple and logical, no longer foreign to my Western mind.

★★★★★ “Excellent!”
What a fascinating journey! I have read a little about ayahuasca, but reading Frederic’s experiences and insights really captured my attention. Excellent book!

★★★★★ “A profound read for anyone looking to understand their spiritual awakening !”
This is a must-read for anyone on a spiritual journey. What makes it so profound is Frederic’s ability to connect his journey, life lessons and spiritual awakening in a way that helps you to recognize the patterns and healing process in your own life. It will be that book that I always come back to when I need to be reminded that there truly is light at the end of the tunnel. This is a personal story and healing tool of a quest to find the real you. In this book, I learned many knew enlightening concepts about spirituality as well as understanding my own personal spiritual awakening from a new perspective. I highly recommend this amazing book! Thank you!
