News Release #1
The “Winds of Spirit” have been unleashed from the Caves of Time. Readers can learn the ancient secrets of the winds, helping them find their pathway to life and achieve their own total healing.
From time immemorial, there have been Wind Deities – Gods & Goddesses. They influenced lives and illuminated the path to our success and happiness. But then they disappeared, along with their messages of peace and secrets. Renee Baribeau – Shamanic Coach, and Inspirational Speaker – is humbled to have re-introduced these powerful and loving spirits to people throughout the world.
“Winds of Spirit” contains enduring Shamanic secrets and illustrates how the wind can be used to discover and connect with one’s true and happiest self (the Spiritual Magnetic North), use the body as a compass, and never get lost again. By working with the omnipresent winds, anyone can restore harmony and balance, heal the body, and inspire creativity.

“Wind is the invisible force of nature whose thumbprint leaves an indelible mark on time and space. According to Sandra Ingerman, “Winds of Spirit will transform you into a lover of the wind”. The book reveals the rich mythology and cultural significance of wind, while also presenting a powerful Wind Work® system to help you recognize and utilize the subtle energies in your life to heal yourself.
The Wind Work® system relies on time-honored sacred techniques used by farmers, shamans, and sailors alike. It shows how to navigate one’s path, providing insight into how to manage the wind patterns and shifting conditions affecting their quality of life. Readers will learn how to invoke Wind Deities from around the world, as well as the Cardinal Winds from the four quadrants of the sky. Each Wind Deity relates to the inner landscape of life: Mind, Emotions, Body, and Spirit. In Part IV of the book, there are 28 unique Wind Deities from which to choose. The reader can open “Winds of Spirit” to any page to gain a deeper understanding of how these energies might be influencing their thoughts, feelings, and actions.
“Beautifully written. Truly Inspiring. Practical and applicable. This book will help guide you to the true path of finding your own inner wisdom and verified faith. Read it, apply the wisdom and together we shall create a positive change on this planet from the inside out.” Noah Levine, Refuge Recovery.
