Publisher's Summary

Today, practicing shamanism doesn't mean you have to live in a rain forest or a desert. Thanks to a modern renaissance of shamanic spirituality, practitioners from all walks of life now use powerful indigenous techniques for healing, insight, and spiritual growth. With Awakening to the Spirit World, teachers Sandra Ingerman and Hank Wesselman bring together a circle of renowned Western shamanic elders - Tom Cowan, Carol Proudfoot-Edgar, Jose Stevens, and Alberto Villoldo - to present a comprehensive manual for making these practices accessible and available in our daily lives, including:

  • How the original practice of shamanism shaped the world's spiritual traditions and why it is still relevant today.
  • The art of the shamanic journey-a time-tested meditative method for experiencing important spiritual lessons and truths.
  • Guidance for avoiding common pitfalls of shamanic practice.
  • Instruction for working with your dreams, connecting to your spirit guides, and healing yourself and your environment

Informative but limited

The book is very informative in the ways of Shamanism or awakening to the spirit world. It is a very good start if someone isn't at all aware of such things. I found this good. But towards the end, it seemed a little off. The deeper it went through the chapters, the more i was losing the point in how and why the practices are the way they are. The viewpoint of the practitioners, though very open in various shamanism ways old and new, are limited to just that, shamanism, which the books is what totally is about. They seem to neglect religious practices from different sects and ignore how they can compare and contrast on what each religion does. Its a good starter book.

Deeply heartfelt and insightful

Loved this. I experienced many shifts in the duration of listening to this audiobook. Helps you to go deeper within yourself and teaches humility. I think the biggest take away for me was in that being unforgiving towards someone is also taking a piece of their soul and chains a part of you and the other person. Forgiving someone releases both of you. There are many sections in this book I have bookmarked that I will need to go back to and sit with in sacred ceremony. Thank you for this wonderful gift!
