Shamanism is the oldest type of spiritual practice on the planet. It has been practiced for centuries by indigenous cultures all over the world. Anthropologists have studied the practice for years. The core value of shamanism is that all things are alive and embody the spirit. This practice is a path of direct revelation and grants all individuals access to healing and guidance from the spirit world. It's a way of carrying knowledge that we are not separate from each other but are all connected. To access the spirit realm, you must perform the shamanic journey, making use of rattling, singing, and drumming to alter brain patterns to reach a state of consciousness. This state allows the shaman to become the bridge that connects spirit with matter and unseen with seen. These invisible realms house our helping spirits and they are typically in the form of guardians or power animals and teachers in human form. When you have an open communication with your helping spirits, you can send valuable information to and receive from them to explore a timeless healing form. This age-old practice can cure trauma and transform environmental pollution. This book will serve as a guide on your shamanic journey.

Through shamanism, we can become the vehicle for change our world so desperately needs.

A shaman can serve as a healer, storyteller, and a keeper of wisdom—but most of all, teaches Sandra Ingerman, “Shamans radiate a light that uplifts everybody. In our culture, we tend to focus on methods and forget that the greatest way we can offer healing to the world is to become a vessel of love.” With Walking in Light, this renowned teacher offers a complete guide for living in a shamanic way—empowered by purpose, focus, and a deep connection to the spiritual dimensions. “Shamanism remains so relevant because it continues to evolve to meet the needs of the times and culture,” teaches Sandra.

Shamanism can be described as a group of techniques by which its practitioners enter the “spirit world,” purportedly obtaining information that is used to help and to heal members of their social group. Despite a resurgence of interest in shamanism and shamanic states of consciousness, these phenomena are neither well-defined nor sufficiently understood. This multi-disciplinary study draws on the fields of psychology, philosophy and anthropology with the aim of demystifying shamanism. The authors analyse conflicting perspectives regarding shamanism, the epistemology of shamanic states of consciousness, and the nature of the mental imagery encountered during these states.
Is shamanism all that different from modern witchcraft? According to Christopher Penczak, Wicca's roots go back 20,000 years to the Stone Age shamanic traditions of tribal cultures worldwide. A fascinating exploration of the Craft's shamanic origins, The Temple of Shamanic Witchcraft offers year-and-a-day training in shamanic witchcraft. Penczak's third volume of witchcraft teachings corresponds to the water element - guiding the reader into this realm of emotion, reflection, and healing. The twelve formal lessons cover shamanic cosmologies, journeying, dreamwork, animal/plant/stone medicine, totems, soul retrieval, and psychic surgery. Each lesson includes exercises (using modern techniques and materials), assignments, and helpful tips. The training ends with a ritual for self-initiation into the art of the shamanic witch - culminating in an act of healing, rebirth, and transformation. COVR Award Winner
