EXPLORE THE WAY OF THE SHAMAN This outstanding collection of essays by nineteen noted scholars, religious figures, and practicing shamans from all traditions paints a vivid picture of the mind and soul of the shaman around the world. Chapters by Michael Harner, Mircea Eliade, Joan Halifax, Brooke Medicine Eagle, Serge King, and other experts show why shamanism - one of the oldest forms of religious life- is experiencing so great a renewal of interest. From the Foreword by Jean Houston: "The shaman perceives a world of total aliveness, in all parts personal, in all parts sentient, in all parts capable of being known and being used.for healing, for renewal, and for bringing into the profane world the transformational powers of sacred time and space. This volume covers the field of shamanic practice and belief in as comprehensive a manner as has ever been presented to the general public. From the distant past to the emergent future, and across the boundaries of cultures, the depth culture of the shaman is shown to persist." "This fine work discusses the history, traditions, and modern relevance of shamanism by exploring relevant practices in Native American, Jewish, Australian, and other cultures. well-written, jargon-free chapters.detail information on the relationship between shamanism and ESP, dreams, and magical healing."
