  “Compelling storytelling…celebrating the extraordinary power and freedom found in passionately living our truths.”  

JoAnne Dodgson, author of
Gifts of the Grandmother
and Cocooning


"A colorful sacred journey to the inner self. This well-written tale is much more than a story - it illuminates the way home, if you are willing to walk it."


Alan Cohen, best selling author of The Dragon Doesn't Live Here Anymore and Why Your Life Sucks and What You Can Do About It

  “Reading Sacred Link was like eating a box of truffles (a rare indulgence, but one where you savor every bite!). After reading a portion of a chapter, I was so filled that I had to put it down and hold it in my heart space to truly grasp the power of what she had to share. It was a very transformative read!”  

JoEllen Koerner author of
Mother, Heal My Self

  “The world more than anything else needs balance; Sacred Link is a bold giant step in that direction. Kay Cordell Whitaker brings ancient wisdom into the modern world and opens us to marvelous transformative experiences! This book redefines the meaning of ‘spiritual sensuality’ -- an ecstatic state of living in the present that is an essential bridge to higher levels of consciousness.”  

John Perkins, author of Shapeshifting, The World Is As You Dream It, Psychonavigation, The Stress-Free Habit, Spirit of the Shuar

  Sacred Link sent chills up my spine – what a compelling, empowering story!”  

Christiane Northrup, M.D. author of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom (Bantam, 1998) and The Wisdom of Menopause (Bantam, March 2001)


"Kay Cordell Whitaker's second book Sacred Link is a love song to creation. With rich and evocative language, she relates not only how, under the guidance of her Peruvian teachers, she learned to fully open her senses and make contact with all of life, but entices the reader to do the same. This expanded definition of "prayer" which includes communion with a vibrating, responsive world, and the remembering of our unique "song", our original state of openness and joy, is surely one of the great teachings to be found in modern literature, as well as a practical guide to what part we all can play in helping to put the world back into balance."


Nancy London, M.S.W., one of the original authors of Our Bodies, Ourselves" and author of Hot Flashes, Warm Bottles: First-Time Mothers Over Forty.


"This book contains treasures beyond all the gold ever taken from the Eastern Andes Mountains!"


Dr. Seefeldt, Psychologist

  Sacred Link is a must read. It helps us to recognize and find our individual life force or ‘song,’ and through living this song our everyday lives become prayers to Creator. It allows us to awaken to the possibility of living our song in harmony with all songs of the universe, guiding us to a life of loving, harmonious communion. Reading this book is a  transformative healing experience.”  

Eve Bruce, MD, author of Shaman MD


“In today's world the separation of consciousness from the realm of the body and the earth is causing brutality, misery, and a toxic environment. But our ancient knowledge of the body is not lost. In the shamanic tradition of the Native Americans, long-guarded knowledge offers us crucial information about the sacred nature of embodiment, both in terms of our individual bodies and the great body of the earth. Kay Whitaker’s wonderful new book will help you relearn how to fully inhabit your senses, glory in the true nature of your sexuality, and come to a deep appreciation of the wonder of physical life. Read this book with all your attention.”             


Lara Owen, author of Her Blood Is Gold and Honoring Menstruation.


"I have just finished reading Sacred Link...Whooowwww. I read The Reluctant Shaman many years ago and re-read it many times over the years. It has always been my favorite of the shaman type books, but THIS BOOK... I am not sure what to say; I do not think I have been as profoundly effected by a book in my life! I have been doing body practices for many years and have never encountered the freedom and openness described in this book."


Phyllis King, Bodywork

  “With great generosity of spirit, clarity of language and metaphor, Kay Cordell Whitaker shows us the role that sense-abilities play in our soul growth. The power of her story compels us to seek the peace, beauty and wisdom that lies buried deep inside each one of us. In this space the differences that divide melt away, making room for emergence of the unconditional love essential to healing the planet and our Selves.”  

JoEllen Koerner author of
Mother, Heal My Self


"The rhythm, patterns, passion, symbols and syntax, all carefully crafted, may evoke from within, not the usual vicarious experiences, but the deep cellular personal memories of the spiritual relationship with the energies of our planet and the universe."

Smoak Vondell, Author, Editor

"In Sacred Link, Kay Whitaker invites us to open not only our eyes but all of our senses if we are to be truly alive, and to do so with honor and regard for all of Creation."

Dr. Carino, Clinical Psychiatrist
