Présentation de l'éditeur

Today, practicing shamanism doesn't mean you have to live in a rain forest or a desert. Thanks to a modern renaissance of shamanic spirituality, practitioners from all walks of life now use powerful indigenous techniques for healing, insight, and spiritual growth. With Awakening to the Spirit World, teachers Sandra Ingerman and Hank Wesselman bring together a circle of renowned Western shamanic elders to present a comprehensive manual for making these practices accessible and available in our daily lives, including: How the original practice of shamanism shaped the world's spiritual traditions and why it is still relevant today. The art of the shamanic journey--a time-tested meditative method for experiencing important piritual lessons and truths. Guidance for avoiding common pitfalls of shamanic practice. Instruction for working with your dreams, connecting to your spirit guides, healing yourself and your environment.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Remember your true origins....... 5 mars 2010
Par ~Kiwi~ - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
This is a lovely book.....inside and out. I particularly love the crow on the cover; I have a murder of crows which live on my land and I just adore their silly-ness and their sense of humor.... But enough about the cover..

Shamanism is an ancient study/awareness of the Universe in my opinion. There are many indigenous peoples who hold these sacred practices from their ancestors, in high esteem. This book helps to allow some of these special ceremonies and magic to surface. It gives us knowledge and ways to communicate with the energy and the spirits who surround us. There is also a drumming CD included, which is a very nice touch.

I was drawn to the chapters on Dreaming and Death because these two subjects are pertinent to me. These are such important topics for healing and for release. I believe humans should be more informed with end of life issues and to embrace this time as a special journey, rather than shunning it, out of fear. Everyone should be allowed the dignity of dying with grace. These chapters help greatly in explaining this powerful rite of passage.

The Dreaming chapter is just as revealing and should be read by everyone. Our dreams are so important to our *knowing.* Our Spirit Guides are here to help with our questions and they love nothing more than to help us. Learning from them and honouring them should be part of our daily thanks. The paranormal is normal, the supernatural is natural. Nature is the way back to ourselves.

I wouldn't call this book a manual, it's more of an eye opener or an overview. But it is a journey worth taking and a way to learn how to relax and spend time with the unknown. Highly recommended and I feel it would make a very thoughtful gift.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Should be top of the list for Shamanic Studies 15 mars 2010

Very well written, easy to read book with a lot of thought and insight and research put into it.
I was delighted when I saw it - it is a gorgeous book with a really gorgeous cover - I LOVE that art - but I was pleasantly suprised that it came with Shamanic tracts on a CD. I had not realized the book came with a cd! I had no problem finishing this book. I read it in sections, and looked forward to my time alone with it.
What I liked might be hard to put into words....as one that's been on a Shamanic pagan path for many years, this book coincided very well with my beliefs and the ritual elements that it discussed, they are already my own, and I will vouch for their effectiveness. But it wasn't THAT... There's tidbits in this book, especially some of the words from the shamans interviewed for this book, that sort of flipped some switches I didn't know I had. I gathered some very AHA! insights from this book, which are well worth the cost in time and effort put into reading it. I felt PUSHED along on my current path, perhaps saving me unknown amounts of time and meditation on certain things. It's a bit surreal, it is by it's nature hard to express.
The CD tracks are also very effective - the author(s) have studied beats from many cultures, many Shamans, and have found that they have a lot in common, and that is what the trance drumming is based on.
I do think that Wiccans and Neopagans would enjoy this book as well. Some of the ritual elements certainly overlap.
This book was recently featured on a Coast to Coast radio show. If you read it, and like it, you might catch that on the web or something. One of the authors talked more about his personal journey and the effort of research that went into this. This book was well researched by a well educated scientist.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Exploring the Mystical Life 7 juin 2010
Par Alejandra Vernon - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
"Awakening to the Spirit World" is an excellent overview that covers a lot of ground, giving us a bit of history of the beginnings of shamanism, the indigenous cultures that have nurtured the teachings, and how their spiritual leaders, whether they be called shamans, medicine men, or something else, have tapped into the supernatural and touched the unknown, become acquainted with their spirit animals, wandered the inner worlds, and received revelation. Sandra Ingerman and Hank Wesselman have brought us other voices to join them in this volume: Tom Cowan, Carol Proudfoot-Edgar, Jose Luis Stevens, and Alberto Villoldo. All of them have their own experience to add to this wide-ranging teaching, and if you read this book with an open mind, I have no doubt that you will get nuggets of pure wisdom from it.

I have some favorite sections: Carol Proudfoot-Edgar on working with our animal companions in Chapter 2, "The Shamanic Journey," a chapter where we learn exercises to prepare and travel on our own personal journey. Chapter 7, "Creative Art as a Bridge," which talks of the power of words, and how we can heal and bless with what we say. Chapter 11, "All Change Involves Death," and the erasing of personal history to remove the emotion out of past events that prevent us from moving forward. Among the things that blessed me most in the book was Hank Wesselman's respectful version of the Lord's Prayer in Chapter 5. Saying it aloud is transformative.

The book includes a CD with 4 pieces of drumming and other instruments, specifically made for journeying, that is most helpful. Total time is 62.21, enough time to journey and to relax (this is especially useful for city-dwellers, to drown out any extraneous noises).

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good introductory book & CD, a few disagreements & additions 9 septembre 2011
Par Crystal - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Good introductory book on cross-cultural shamanism written from a Western point of view and preparation for initial journey work by Sandra Ingerman and Hank Wesselman which includes contributions from others such as Tom Cowan, Carol Proudfoot-Edgar, Jose Stevens and Alberto Villardo. The CD was also fine for journeying and is pretty much straight rhythmic sound rather than guided meditations encountered in some other materials on shamanism and in some of Sandra Ingerman's other works. I'm not much for guided meditations. If a clear intent is set and an altered state of consciousness achieved I haven't found any more is needed. Plus, why should the spirits or the experience be restricted or guided? I enjoyed there are a lot of different aspects of shamanism covered such as art and shamanism, reconnecting with nature and merging with the elements, making your own ceremonies, dreaming, and death. The book discusses the definition of shamanism and how the word has become so amorphous. Sadly, I would have to agree as you see the word shaman or shamanism tacked onto so many commercial products so buyer beware.

I would perhaps add on to or disagree with a few things, but this is based on my personal experience, beliefs, and reading so far. In African spirit possession for healing, those truly called by the spirits cannot maintain their abilities if they engage in harmful sorcery. I would define sorcery as ego based such as craving to control others, using your ability mainly for self aggrandizement or profit, doing intentional harm to others, etc. While the book discusses different "classes" of shaman beginning with the ego based shaman to the enlightened shaman, this section does not make certain aspects clear. Yes, the sorcerer also has spirit allies, but these are what I would call the spirits of the shadow side or what some might call demonic in nature. The book also does not discuss spirit possession as a method or type of shamanic work.

The focus is on the sacred and developing respectful relationships, the book doesn't particularly emphasize ecstasy or how playful the spirits can be at times. While shamanism may not all be love and light, at the same time it is not always deadly serious either. The book also doesn't emphasize lineage or genetics in shamanism. For many indigenous cultures the medicine and spiritual leaders are often from family lineages and these lineages can be emphasized in their communities. The book takes a more democratic attitude.

This book discusses and there are a lot of materials asserting the near death, psychotic break, or other traumatic even as a type of initiation or opening to the spirit world. While I read this often, I question it. At least in the healing community there are many healers who haven't had a near death or particularly traumatic event that led them to the path of healing. It can be simple curiosity.

There is some discussion of psychedelic or hallucinogenic drugs and speculation that these plants may have been the original doors opening humankind's contact with the spirit world. Perhaps, but my experience tells me this also happens spontaneously. In DMT: The Spirit Molecule: A Doctor's Revolutionary Research into the Biology of Near-Death and Mystical Experiences, you come away with the lesson that while the drugs produce all sorts of interesting visions and experiences they don't appear to lead on their own to cosmic consciousness or enlightenment, at least on any permanent basis such as a fully awakened guru or spiritual master has achieved. There are also some born with the knowing. Many psychics report hearing spirits or knowing things as children. I feel this is our natural state and in Hawaii where I was born contact with the spirit world is common in the Asian and Pacific cultures, but Western culture has de-emphasized or doubts this experience and perhaps this is why so many Westerners seem to emphasize drug ingestion to facilitate or as the initial contact with the spirit world. And Western and particularly American culture likes things to be instant. Sadly it only emphasizes spiritual emptiness.
