Journalist Stephanie Guyer-Stevens and anthropologist Françoise Pommaret traveled to the Himalayas to meet seven Bhutanese female shamans and to help make their stories known. Together Guyer-Stevens and Pommaret wrote Divine Messengers: The Untold Story of Bhutan's Female Shamans. The book offers an intimate narrative of these shamans’ spiritual experiences and important roles in Bhutanese society. On The Point, Mindy Todd interviews Stephanie Guyer-Stevens about the book and her experiences in Bhutan.
