This well-crafted timely book will introduce you to the Shamanism way of life. It will satisfy your thirst for information like nothing you have read before on the subject.

“Shamanism is the most ancient spiritual practice known to humankind.  As a method, it is a form of meditation combined with a focused intention.  As a spiritual practice, shamanism can become a way of life and may utterly transform the one who practices it.”

Sandra Ingerman is a licensed therapist and shamanic practitioner whom teaches workshops on shamanism and how to reverse environmental pollution around the world.  Widely acclaimed for bringing together ancient healing practices and modern culture, her books include Shamanic Journeying, Soul Retrieval, Medicine for the Earth and more.  She resides in New Mexico.

Hank Wesselman, PhD, is a paleoanthropologist and shamanic teacher who has worked with noted anthropologists investigating the mysteries of human origins in Africa.  His books include Spiritwalker, Medicinemaker, Visionseeker, Journey to the Sacred Garden, and Spirit Medicine (coauthored with Jill Kuykendall, RPT).  He lives in Hawaii.

The authors create an atmosphere in which you feel like you are actually sitting with them and having a conversation.  Sandra and Hank address many of the questions you would ask during a conversation.  The book is informative without being as sterile as a textbook.  The flow of the book is very comfortable in the conversation-style that is so easy to read page after page. It is almost calming to the reader.  I found myself nodding with approval while I was absorbing the contents of the thought-provoking pages.

I so enjoyed the exercises contained in the book.  This part of the book was my favorite as I believe we all learn from practice.  I felt transformed during these exercises and amazed at my own abilities in this practice time.  It was so enjoyable to bring the knowledge you just learned into a practical experience that helped make the knowledge your own.

The book contains a CD that is very helpful in the exercises but it is not a requirement. 

There is also a 2-CD set that may help you with:

--Connecting to your helping spirits – journeys to make contact with your power animals and spirit teachers for healing and wisdom.

--The shamanic initiation into oneness – an experience of your true self beyond the body and mind.

--Looking through “spirit eyes” – merging with a helping spirit to extend your perception into the unseen world.

--The grounding tree journey – an essential exercise for returning to your center after exploring the spiritual realms.

This book is a comprehensive and clear guide to many aspects of the sacred path of shamanism.  The book provides very practical tools to help us connect to our own journey.

This book was very thought provoking and stimulating for the mind to entertain.  I personally would recommend this book to anyone seeking spiritual answers to the chaos, confusion, and uncertainty in ourselves and in our world.
