Back in print - a fascinating look at Shamanic healing methods from around the world * Examines shaman training methods and consciousness developing techniques, rituals and ceremonies, heroic feasts and magical powers, psychological insights and spiritual wisdom * Shows that Western medicine and psychology have much to learn from primal healing methods * From the author of Dreamtime and Inner Space This remarkable book shows that healing is not merely the alleviation of symptoms for these extraordinary men and women, but entails a change in consciousness and a transformation of one's relationship to life. Kalweit surveys the shamanic methods of healing and altered consciousness and draws comparisons between accounts of shamans and those of Western researchers into near-death experiences, 'spiritual emergencies' and other altered states. Shamans, Healers, and Medicine Men is a fascinating account showing Western Medicine has much to learn from primal healing methods.
