Growing up parentless, Shi Yan, who was left with a large amount of inheritance money, bore a general disinterest in life. The only times he felt alive was when adrenaline coursed thorough his veins. He quickly found that extreme sports, bungyjumping, cave diving & skydiving, gave him the biggest kicks. The bigger the adrenaline kick, the closer he was to death, the more alive he felt. Waking up in a pile of dead bodies in an unknown land, after a diving adventure had ended disastrously, he quickly realizes the body he now possessed was not his own. Follow Shi Yan as he explores this new world where danger lurks around every corner, and death is only a breath away; a world in which Shi Yan could not feel any more alive.

This book is an anthology of shamanic journeys that I have taken over my 35-year exploration of shamanism—the most ancient and most enduring spiritual tradition known to humanity. Each inner journey has a unique story about what led up to the trance experience, and what I learned from it. They were powerful life-changing events for me. Journey work is therapeutic and liberating. My trance experiences were healing, insightful and empowering. They often triggered the cathartic release of suppressed emotions producing feelings of peace and well-being. The process restores emotional health through expression and integration of emotions. Shamanism is based on the principle that innate wisdom and guidance can be accessed through the inner senses in ecstatic trance. We can engage the blueprint of our soul path through the vehicle of journeying. Shamanic journeying is a time-tested medium for individual self-realization. We can journey within to access wisdom and energies that can help awaken our soul calling and restore us to wholeness. It heightens our sense of mission and purpose, empowering our personal evolution. I invite you to journey with me into the inner realms of consciousness.

The Oxford Anthology of the Brazilian Short Story contains a selection of short stories by the best-known authors in Brazilian literature from the late nineteenth century to the present. With few exceptions, these stories have appeared in English translation, although widely separated in time and often published in obscure journals. Here they are united in a coherent edition representing Brazil's modern, vibrant literature and culture. J.M. Machado de Assis, who first perfected the genre, wrote at least sixty stories considered to be masterpieces of world literature. Ten of his stories are included here, and are accompanied by strong and diverse representations of the contemporary story in Brazil, featuring nine stories by Clarice Lispector and seven by Joao Guimaraes Rosa. The remaining 34 authors include Mario de Andrade, Graciliano Ramos, Osman Lins, Dalton Trevisan, and other major names whose stories in translation exhibit profound artistry. The anthology is divided into four major periods, "Tropical Belle-Epoque," "Modernism," "Modernism at Mid-Century," and "Contemporary Views." There is a general introduction to Brazilian literary culture and introductions to each of the four sections, with descriptions of the authors and a general bibliography on Brazil and Brazilian literature in English. It includes stories of innovation (Mario de Andrade), psychological suspense (Graciliano Ramos), satire and perversion (Dalton Trevisan), altered realities and perceptions (Murilo Rubiao), repression and sexuality (Hilda Hilst, Autran Dourado), myth (Nelida Pinon), urban life (Lygia Fagundes Telles, Rubem Fonescal), the oral tale (Jorge Amado, Rachel de Queiroz) and other overarching themes and issues of Brazilian culture. The anthology concludes with a haunting story set in the opera theater in Manaus by one of Brazil's most recently successful writers, Milton Hatoum.

Excerpt...The Time Traveller Dear Melanie. I hope my parting was met with the sorrow I deserved, and that my wishes were fulfilled. Do you remember the time we went for a ride on a dog sleigh while your mother was giving birth to your brother Michael. Do you remember seeing the big white bear on the ice flow? You are probably aware that polar bears have been extinct since the year 2053 and the ice at both poles has long since disappeared. You were eleven and changing into a woman; I thought to tell you then, but I decided it best to wait a while longer. Mrs Mirren, or Marjory, will have mentioned my long periods of seclusion in the attic. I wish you to go there now. You will find the key in the right-hand drawer of my desk....... .....You see my dear; you are now in possession of a time machine. WHATEVER YOU DO, ALWAYS RETURN ONE NANO-SECOND AFTER YOU DEPARTED, AND NEVER BEFORE, AS THIS WILL CAUSE AN IRREVERSABLE ANOMALY. If the instructions are not clear, read them through once more. Please ensure that this device does not leave your possession. If such an occasion should arise, do your utmost to destroy the device, preferably by fire. And, remember this, you have no moral right to change the future, for things don’t always turn out the way you plan them. Go visit the future, say hello to yourself, it won’t be a shock to you as you know of it beforehand. Goodbye, Henry Jones.
