Pas de longues descriptions anthropologiques dans ce livre. Si Michael Harner nous raconte ses initiations, c'est pour nous faire entrer de plein pied dans ce monde fascinant. Mais très vite il nous propose une pratique moderne, facile à intégrer dans notre vie de tous les jours d'hommes du XXIème siècle. Il a su adapter le chamanisme à un monde apparemment peu fait pour le recevoir, sans déranger, et sans rien lui faire perdre de sa puissance originale.

Michael Harner, the most un-guru of gurus I've ever met. 12 septembre 2009
Par LC1 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
The Way of the Shaman is a good introduction to the teachings of Michael Harner, and a good introduction to shamanism in general.

I'm posting a review of this book, years after he inscribed a copy of this book to me, because of some of the ridiculous, negative comments some reviewers have written. Please be aware that, "Michael Harner received his anthropology Ph.D. in 1963 from the University of California, Berkeley, and has taught at various institutions, including UC Berkeley, Columbia University, Yale University, and the Graduate Faculty of the New School in New York, where he was chair of the anthropology department. He also served as co-chair of the anthropology section of the New York Academy of Sciences." Do people who trash his work think these credentials were made up? Do those critics think Harner made up the bases of those credentials?

Michael Harner is the most unguru of gurus I've ever met. To questions of, "How do I . . . What does this mean . . . Can I . . . I am I any good at this" or anything else you might ask, his only response, every time is "Go ask your power animal!!!" If you want to lean on him, or put him on a pedestal, he's not the guy for you.

In the "Way of the Shaman" (or in one of his workshops) he tells of how he started out life as an altar boy and almost immediately became an atheist. As an anthropologist studying shamanism in the jungles of South America, he pestered the shamans so much about what journeying was like, they told him to do a journey himself. Not only did he remember the journey, unusual it itself, he told his story to the nearest Americans he could find, a pair of fundamentalist Christians, "a cut above the average" missionary. They pointed out that his journey paralleled the Book of Revelations in the Bible. (Subsequently, subversive that Michael is, he was happy to report that those Fundamentalists are now shamans.)

One of the most useful distinctions he teaches is that shamans are aware that the world is divided into ordinary and non-ordinary reality. A shaman walks between these worlds. Our mainstream American culture is firmly rooted in ordinary reality. Those who dwell only in the world of non-ordinary reality might be living full-time in a lunatic asylum. Both worlds exist, whether or not we believe in them.

To further clarify his work, in a conversation we had a couple of years ago, Michael reiterated that he teaches shamanic techniques for divination and healing ONLY! He certainly does not do sweat lodges or anything like that.

As for those who criticize him for taking money. Well, renting or maintaining space takes money. Feeding people takes money. He also points out that shamans are hardly uncompensated for their services in traditional communities. How could they not be? If they are working as shamans, journeying between worlds, they can't be doing other kinds of work, such as bringing home the bacon, figuratively or literally, or weatherproofing whatever dwelling they live in. Shamans have the expenses of living in ordinary reality, too. It just so happens that in our culture, money is usually the medium of exchange.

For those who complain that Michael promises shamanism in return for a week end and fees, go to his website and read the material on it. Is he promising or guaranteeing that people will become shamans in that time? Or is he offering people the introduction to shamanism? As far as bringing shamanism to suburbia: If someone does not introduce shamanism to suburbanites, how else will it reach them?

Some of us have experiences that do not fit into an ordinary-reality paradigm. We have experiences that have no validity in suburbia or any other geographic locality in the United States. A talent for walking in non-ordinary reality is simply not a recognized gift in these here United States. If you are one of those people, it can be enormously reassuring when someone, such as Michael, validates that, yeah, there are ways of looking at the world other than what your mainstream society teaches you, that perhaps, you are not nuts, but merely a walker between worlds without knowing it. Not only are there different ways of looking at the world, there are different worlds.

For those native shamans, try to place this book in context. It was published decades ago, well before a lot of stuff was available on shamanism. It was also written for those with little or no knowledge of shamanism. Your experiences and strengths may be different. Also, if you yourself are a working shaman, you probably live in a culture where your niche in life is recognized and supported, both physically and spiritually. You do not have to be introduced to the idea and reality of shamanism because your culture lives it.

One of the things that Michael pointed out in one of his workshops is that as societies become more "civilized", shamans are the first to go. They are replaced by priests because power structures demand to be spiritually legitimized. People in power need need priests to validate their actions, to say, not in so many words, "Yeah, God is on my side!" Kings and princes do NOT need some shaman piping up, "Well God didn't say that on MY journey!"

Try to give Michael the benefit of the doubt: Try not to approach this book with the notion that he is a charlatan, or a rip-off artist. Remember, he started out life as an altar boy, then as an educator, not a shaman. In this book, he in introducing shamanism to mainstream Western Cultures, that had no knowledge of it, or context in which to place shamanism. Remember, too, that bridging different cultures in ordinary reality is a different kind of walking between worlds.

Shamanism defined in an understandable way 30 mars 2000
Par David Aquarius - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Mr. Harner has taken a misunderstood and often misinterpreted subject and has written a very good book for those who have little to no experience with cultural shamanism. He has extensive experience with native shamen and tells of his adventures in a way that allows the reader to grasp the ecstatic methods of these priests. His is not the sum of all knowledge on shamanism and it can be seen as a condensed version, but this is still a very good book to begin with. His techniques are good enough to allow one to develop a shamanic connection from within themselves and their own culture. This book is NOT a rip-off of native practices. No one culture can claim to be the first shamen, everyone's ancestors practiced it at some point. For those who wish to journey, this book will guide you to your path and from there, you can fly.

Read it if you must-but take it from where it comes. 16 juillet 2006
Par wolf woman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I have been teaching Shamanic workshops, and practicing Shamanic healing for many years ( never charging a penny for my services).

I have been enraged by Harner"s book, and his money making workshops since I 1st read his book. I am an indigeneous person to the US but that is not how or why, I became a Shaman. All cultures, from all over the planet have had Shaman, who unfortunately dissapeared

for a reason I don't know. Shamans do not need outside stimuli to journey into Spirit World. It is used as an aid to help people relax so they can achieve a trance like state and let go of their fear of the unknown. ( One does not have to be A SHAMAN journey ).

The definition of a Shaman is " One who walks between the worlds

( or realities), an experienced Shaman can do this while doing something else. Harner, in this book makes a lot of statements concerning evil you might meet on a journey, such as beware of spiders

and insects. I have journeyed many hundreds of times and have never been harmed by any being I encountered, how could I be? I am in Spirit World, Spirit is not going to harm you no matter what form you see. I have NEVER used a mind altering substance to journey, some, especially the South American Shaman do, and again not all. Not all Shaman are alike, we do different tasks

assigned to us by Spirit. I do hands on healing, others do soul retrieval and so on. I know I'm jumping around I feel like I have so much to tell you. Here are my last 3 comments: after I had read this book by Harner I asked the Shaman I had apprenticed with for 4 years about the spider and insect and fanged being warnings he gives and her reply was simply: " Who is Michael Harner to limit Spirit". # 2, Shamanism never was, and is not now a Religion. Thirdly, don't believe something because it's in a book, research it to find what is real.

A misleading book 29 mai 2003
Par Makula Aulanchis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I think Harner's error is not that much in that he takes shamanic work out of native context, but that he puts people at danger by making them believe his sanitized teflon-wrapped package. If this is all day-dreaming - then it's no big deal, why can't suburbanites spend some time reconnecting with their subconsciousness?
If, on the other hand, we take this stuff for real - if there is an energy body, if there are worlds into which the energy body travels during the "altered states of consciousness", then the Harnerian method is not only irresponsible, it is downright dangereous. It takes decades to train an indigenous shaman precisely because these passageways into the astral and beyond are so tricky, its inhabitants so unpredictable and our mind so untrained and incapable of distinguishing between what is personal and what is impersonal. Any would-be "shaman" working out of his own personal space, or "subconsciousness" is asking for trouble.
I have, as the years go by, started to look at the Harner Enterprise (which he runs together with his wife) as a tremendous money-making machine. It is all rather shameless and it is perhaps no wonder that Harner himself is not being taken seriously anymore.
If you want to be a shaman, go into nature, pray to God, talk to your allies and ask them to send across your path a true teacher who will be devoted to your progress into this amazing Mystery. God ALWAYS answers when the plea comes from a pure, humble heart. I think the Harners lost that innocence necessary for contacting the spirit world in a wholesome and beneficial manner. Moreover, they have apparently never been trained in understanding the energy body and how it works during ASCs. That's why this book is unconvincing, unreliable and potentially dangereous.

A Wonderful Introduction 4 août 2006
Par Ed - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book, recommended by a friend, was my initiation into the world of shamanism. I think Harner gives a great overall description of what shamanism is and where it comes from. There's no mystical, magical ramblings. It's very straighforward and based upon the research Michael Harner did personally as an anthropologist. He's taken the mystery out of shamanism, and presents it more as a science, or methodology.

I think it's sad that almost all the negative reviews of this book seem to be coming from angry or resentful "native" people who seem to have more of a personal issue with Harner than an objective opinion of this specific book. The claim that Harner is trying to create everyday shamans is a crock. He clearly does not present anything to lead the reader to this conclusion. From my understanding, he presents a method for the modern-day person to explore shamanism, incorporating traditions from many different parts of the world. Shamanism is not exclusive to, nor are the rights owned by, Native Americans. The core of this approach seems to be derived in large part from Siberian tradition. Either way, it's interesting to me that two negative reviewers both used the term "suburbanites" as a derogatory term aimed at those who study shamanism without being the blood descendant of a sacred medicine man or something. I don't know where this bitterness comes from, but it is in no way a fair assessment of the book we're supposed to be reviewing.

It seems to me that every single one of us is "indigenous". Unless some of you are from another planet...(which wouldn't surprise me in the least.) We should try to remember that spirituality belongs to no one.

p.s. This is a great book!
