BACK COVER #
This classic on shamanism pioneered the modern shamanic renaissance. It is the foremost resource and reference on shamanism. Now, with a new introduction and a guide to current resources, anthropologist Michael Harner provides the definitive handbook on practical shamanism -- what it is, where it came from, how you can participate.

BLURBS #
"Wonderful, fascinating . . . Harner really knows what he's talking about."
-- Carlos Castaneda

"An intimate and practical guide to the art of shamanic healing and the technology of the sacred. Michael Harner is not just an anthropologist who has studied shamanism; he is an authentic white shaman."
-- Stanislav Grof, author of The Adventure of Self-Discovery and The Stormy Search for Self

"Harner has impeccable credentials, both as an academic and as a practicing shaman. Without doubt (since the recent death of Mircea Eliade) the world's leading authority on shamanism."
-- Nevill Drury, author of The Elements of Shamanism
