The Quest for Authenticity
A Shamanic Pathway to Healing
and Changing Your Life
Spirit Paths: The Quest for Authenticity emerges as a fundamental guide to authenticity. The award-winning book was developed over a six year period from the live workshop series, which began in 2008. Each chapter of Spirit Paths is used as handouts to complement the 6-month long workshop series.
The Spirit Paths™ program is based on a fundamental understanding of the way in which personal work affects change. While the focus and content of the series has evolved since its inception, the intention for individual discovery remains clear: The only thing that you bring to the table in your life is your authentic self. Key questions for participants are:
What do you really want?
Who do you want to be when you die?
Now available to the public, Spirit Paths guides you step-by-step through new ways of understanding perception and beliefs. It challenges you to rethink often long-held beliefs that are essentially false, that may be unknown to you, and that keep you stuck in a life not of your choosing. This program shows you a pathway into authentic relationship, family, community—and your role in life.

"This is one of the most profound books I have read to further personal and spiritual growth. From beginning to end the tone is clear, the philosophy consistent. The reader is challenged but in a way that supports confidence. At no place did I become confused or wonder what the author meant. This book is a practical map of the psyche, one I can navigate in the moment when I fall into old emotions or ideas. The author teaches the power of words, but also the power of images - the different ways to use each. If I had only a few books at the ready to support my personal work, this would be one of them."
"This was a stunning book, and deserves to be held aloft for the world to see. The exercises in the book are powerful and effective with an enduring value. I have no doubt this book will become a classic in time. It is well-written and easy to understand, which is the mark of a great educational book."
"I loved this book. It was easy to follow, well written and organized, and carries a powerful potential to guide the person who decides to engage in the exercises in coming into alignment with the true, sacred self. Kudos to Mr. Starnes for an outstanding contribution to the field of spiritual growth and self-improvement!"
