    • This is the book for you if you want to understand as much as possible about the shaman; who they are, how they do the work that they do and the worlds that they travel to. It is like Mircea Eliade's "Archaic Techniques of Ecstasy" in scope and depth but extremely user friendly as it is is written from the point of view of the practitioner AND scholar. I think of this book like a series of first hand reports from the first sailors who set off for the new worlds and reported that the world was no [...]


    • This wasn't a quick read. The info is more dense than it first appears. There are also plenty of first person experiences in the book to illustrate the points being made. I ended up putting the book down several times, just so I could let the info perk through my head for a while.


    • Some points and ideas were really interesting, but this very strange citation has underminded my trust in the author´s critical thinking: "Early in 2004 I was diagnosed with alpha 1-antitrypsin deficiency (A1AT). A1AT is synthesized in the liver, and when deficient, results in emphysema. Replacement therapy is available through weekly IV infusions since 2004, however, my lung function continued to decrease."The narrator then attends the Foundation´s course on Shamanism and is healed during a g [...]


    • Michael Harner's second book that brings shamanism to the Western world is an interesting place to start. I hadn't read Way of the Shaman before starting this one. The beginning of the text is a cryptic introduction, and the Universal maps of journeyers worlds was of great interest.I read this during my time with a motley crew of students who were interested in psychology and anthropology, and we created our own shamanic drumming circle at nights by Lake Pontchartrain and in members houses. We'd [...]


    • A remarkable book, exploring the experiences of those persons who willingly venture into the spirit world using traditional techniques. Taking a scientific approach, it seeks commonalities to "map" the spirit world. More than that, it provides profound insight into the practice of shamanism in a deep and meaningful way.


    • The author presents a scholarly and existential picture of shamanism. My recommendations on shamanism include is Mircea Eliade (Shamanism: Archaic Techniques of Ecstasy), Michael J. Harner (Cave and Cosmos by Michael J. Harner (Cave and Cosmos: Shamanic Encounters with Another Reality) and Peter Kingsley (A Story Waiting to Pierce You: Mongolia, Tibet and the Destiny of the Western World).



    • A great source about Shamanic journeys with detailed anecdotes. A little promotional though about the author's workshops, but still relevant.
