In an age when much of the Earth's surface has already been explored, mankind's search has extended both outwards, beyond earth into outer space, and inwards to the non-physical realms that lie within ourselves. This inner space is the domain of the Shaman who knows that everything has life and that there is an invisible essence which links all that exists. Thus, through deep connection with nature and the more subtle levels of existence generally, the Shaman understands the correct place of all things - including himself. The shaman knows this information because he has experienced it for himself. We all have the potential to know and experience the inner realms. In this way we can discover our true purpose and find real happiness and fulfilment generally. This text explains practical contemporary shamanism and shows how to apply its principles and techniques to everyday life.

A guide to reconnecting with Jesus, Mary, and the saints as shamanic teachers of divine mysteries • Contains meditations, contemplations, parables, and active ritual tasks that help bring forth a shamanic understanding and practice of Christianity • Shows shamanic experience to be the root of mystical communion When the missionaries came to North America to “save” the American Indians, they were perplexed to discover that while they talked about Jesus, some of the Indians claimed to talk directly with him. Among Christians there is almost complete silence on the subject of the place of shamanism in experiencing the divine, yet shamanic experience is at the root of all mystical communion. Shamanic Christianity offers a chance to rekindle the shamanic practices of Christianity to those who wish to restore their direct connection to the spirit world. In the tradition of contemplative practice, this reconnection takes the form of devotions. Presented in four forms, these devotions begin with a specific contemplation, followed by a meditative focus, then a parable from the author’s own visionary experiences, and finally an active mystical practice to help ground the meditations and contemplations in a ritual or ceremony that involves active participation. These four forms serve to reintroduce Jesus, Mary, and the historically renowned saints as shamanic teachers of divine mysteries whose spiritual presence is readily available to contemporary lives. The author also presents specific directives for handling everyday challenges in a shamanic-inspired manner, drawing upon creative activities and resources that encourage approaching the world with the imaginative and playful spirit of a child, whose personal freedom and creative expression is always wide open to possibilities.

This book on Nanai shamanic culture is based on first-hand information provided by shamans and recorded in the years between 1980 and 2012, a time of rapid socio-cultural change in Russia. It sheds light on the lively indigenous discourse in which social factors such as the splitting of society into different paternal lineages relates to spiritual troubles that Nanai people experience as collective ‘shamanic disease.’ But inter-clan confrontations are not only mediated in shamanic rituals, as these must not be separated from folk narratives, dances and other forms of art. Furthermore, the book provides profound insights into the plurality of contradictory discourses on indigenous knowledge as well as those delivered in non-indigenous contexts. The latter arose or became more intense in the Soviet and post-Soviet periods, and often led to experiments in new shamanic practices.

Utilizing the healing power of breath to change consciousness • Explains how to enter altered states of consciousness, increase paranormal abilities, and resolve old traumas using breathwork • Introduces the Five Cycles of Change that bring about major life shifts and how to work with them Incorporating psychospiritual tools with her Shamanic Breathwork practice, Linda Star Wolf shows how to spiritually journey in the same way shamans entrain to the rhythms of drums or rattles using the breath, either alone or together with music. Much like traveling to sacred places or ingesting entheogens, this practice can be used to enter altered states of consciousness, connect to cosmic consciousness, increase paranormal abilities, and awaken the shaman within. Breathwork can also be used to resolve old traumas and shapeshift unproductive modes of thinking in order to move beyond them. Utilizing the healing power of breath along with chakra-attuned music, Linda Star Wolf explores the Five Cycles of Change--the Alchemical Map of Shamanic Consciousness--and how these cycles affect you as you move through major shifts in your life.

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.
