Welcome to Shamanism Books where you will find a wide range of book reviews aimed at people interested in shamanism, animism, spirituality and related topics.
Our book reviews are written to give you information as well as opinion about book content and you can browse by topic, book title or by specific author. We also have a small fiction section, divination card and music/CD section featuring items we thought would be of interest, entitled ‘Soul and Spirit’.
On most reviews there is also an opportunity to buy directly via the website when you see something you like (please note the links for buying won’t appear if you use an ad blocker unless you disable it for shamanismbooks.co.uk). We receive a small commission if you buy via these links which helps with the costs of running this website.
Commenting under reviews is most welcome so if you would like to post a comment on a book you have read or music you have listened to please do!

Richard Rockman won a ‘Hope Gift Set’ containing: 2 Freedom Stick Incense, Hope and Serenity; for personal worries Tibetan Incense for Stress and a bag of mini Worry Dolls; Tibetan Green Tara Incense for our Mother Earth and a ‘Fish’ Incense holder from Nepal which holds both stick and Tibetan incense.
All of the items are available to buy in our shop at https://shamanismshop.co.uk/. Freedom stick incense is ethically sourced by the folk at Ancient Wisdom in Sheffield who put their heads and hearts together with the incense makers of Bangalore, the idea being to give a little from each item sold directly back to the workers who make that product in India. Tibetan incense forms an important part of Tibetan culture, these incenses are usually made from ancient recipes and unlike other incenses do not have a stick inside. All our Tibetan incense are Fair Trade products from Nepal as is the Incense Stick Holder. The Fair Trade worry dolls are from Guatemala – “In the highland villages of Guatemala a tradition exists where every time you feel anxious or worried you tell your problems to a little worry doll and leave him or her under your pillow to take your problems away. By morning your mind will be clear and your worries gone!”
