A guide to shamanic practices for those seeking to develop psychic powers.

• Contains 19 practical exercises based on shamanic practices from around the world.

• Includes 47-minute CD of shamanic drumming to induce meditative states of deeper awareness.

• Written by the author of Earth Medicine and The Medicine Way.

Motivated by the spirit rather than the intellect, shamanism extends conscious awareness and awakens dormant potential for spiritual wisdom, healing, and personal growth. Shamanic Experience offers a unique opportunity for the Western reader to access the domain of the collective soul through an experiential learning program based on the distillation of shamanic wisdom from cultures and traditions around the world.

Nineteen practical exercises allow readers to discover their aura, develop shamanic breath, energize power centers, develop relationships with power animals, and engage in a Vision Quest. The lessons of Shamanic Experience culminate with a trance-state journey induced by the rhythmic drumming sessions recorded on the accompanying CD.

"Honestly written, concise and clearly stated, everything in the book serves to help."
