‘What is Shamanism?’ – A question that causes many a lively debate or even outright arguments on social media. And What is Shamanism?, the book, wisely doesn’t seek to give one definitive answer but instead explores the question by sharing eleven authentic, insightful essays by established authors and practitioners in the field which discuss a variety of the questions and issues that are frequently raised about shamanism and animism.
As each essay is written from the author’s own experience and beliefs, a variety of viewpoints are presented for the reader to delve into and discover which resonate with them personally, enabling exploration not just of their own thoughts on the question itself but also of many of the issues surrounding the practice of shamanism today in contemporary society.
Another useful, compact yet packed and delightful book from Moon Books Shaman Pathways series, What is Shamanism? is a compact treasure trove of material providing an excellent source of information and much food for thought for further research for both practitioners and readers new to shamanism.
