A wonderfully inspirational ‘feel good’ book containing self-told tales from many well-known shamanic practitioners on their moment of shamanic awakening, Shamanic Transformations demonstrates well the variety of forms that personal realization of the ‘call’ to enter a shamanic path can take.
Shamanic Transformations has 47 stories in total including contributions by Sandra Ingerman, Hank Wesselman, John Perkins, Alberto Villoldo, Lewis Mehl-Madrona, Tom Cowan, Don Oscar Miro-Quesada, Lynn Andrews, Linda Star Wolf, Jose Luis Stevens and others.
Recommended purely as an enjoyable read for anyone interested in or practicing shamanism. However Shamanic Transformations may also inspire personal recollections in practitioners and in addition the stories it contains provide a useful source of information for those new to shamanism and looking to interpret their own experiences. Maybe one will even provide a comparative source leading to a personal ‘aha’ moment for some readers!
