Synopsis

The Shaman's Spirit Discovering the Wisdom of Nature, Power Animals, Sacred Places and Rituals by Mike Williams

The shaman is a visionary who has the ability to connect with nature and the spirit world, and to heal. Shamanism is increasingly popular today as we recognise its power to reaffirm our links with the natural world and bring us to greater awareness and spiritual fulfilment. Drawing on traditional ethnic as well as contemporary Western practice, this beautifully illustrated book reveals the ancient heart of shamanism and its continuing relevance for the way we live today. It contains practical exercises that anyone can perform. Part One, Place, explores sacred sites and landscapes - key places of spiritual power where we can tune into natural energy flow, through vision quests and medicine wheels. Part Two, 'Plant', looks at plants for healing and spiritual development, with reference to sacred cacti, the energies of trees, and herbs. Part Three, 'Animal', focuses on the role played by power animals - as spirit guides and intermediaries between worlds. Part Four, 'Ritual', explores traditional ways of finding your spirit power, including sacred dance, shape-shifting and sacred objects. Finally, Part Five, 'Spirit', offers powerful practices such as soul retrieval, divination and spiritual protection, describing how to work with these for spiritual growth and development.
