Olga Yahontova, also known as Olga Kharitidi, is a trained psychiatrist from Siberia. In search of knowledge hidden within traditional cultures, she has traveled extensively through Europe, Asia, and Africa. Her first book, Entering the Circle, has become a classical introduction to the reality of shamanic practices and has been published in more than twenty countries. Her follow up, The Master of Lucid Dreams, continued her exploration of healing stories and presented a radically new approach to the healing of traumas. After more than a decade away from the public eye, Yahontova has returned with Michael Gate to start a new series of transformational books stemming from her personal, extraordinary experiences. She currently works as a forensic psychiatrist in a facility for the criminally insane. From her recent interview: "I construct the narratives of my stories to make them sort of a Rosetta Stone for collective imagination, so they become a tool to interpret the matters of the Invisible and to translate its most hidden elements into the matters of everyday life and vise versa."
