The Essential Book of Shamanism: Meet Your Powerful Healing Allies

by Suzanne Edwards Author

Shamanism is one of the oldest spiritual practices in the world. The word itself derives from the word 'saman,' meaning 'to know' or 'to heat oneself' in Tungus. In this book author Suzanne Edwards offers you the tools to undertake your own shamanic practice and to reconnect with the intuitive and imaginative side of your being that is so often repressed as we go about our day-to-day business in the modern world. There are many different varieties of shamanism, and Edwards suggests that your practice be non-dogmatic and creative, drawing freely from whatever sources of inspiration you may encounter. This book offers the initiate into shamanism an excellent starting point, and the more experienced shaman a way to diversify and evolve their practice.
