Olga Kharitidi

Jump to: navigation, search

Olga Kharitidi is a Russian doctor and psychiatrist who emigrated to Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA, where she lives and works. She was born in Siberia and worked for some years in a Soviet mental hospital. She travelled in Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and Siberia to discover secrets of healing and magic which she believes can help the world if the material is presented in the right way.

Shamanic sources

Kharatidi encountered ancient and hidden knowledge of healing that reinforced her connection with it. She believes the shamanic teaching from peoples of the Altai Mountains are the source of the world's mystical traditions.

She is the author of Entering the Circle, a New Age themed memoir about her shamanic experiences in the Altai Mountains; as well as The Master of Lucid Dreams, about her similar experiences in Samarkand.

Of the nature of trauma as transformation and development, she writes, 'Ancient cultures understood that human life is a journey with inherent transitions that are innately traumatic, and need to be managed.'[1]
