Spirit Matter on July 13, at Timely info here seeing as a Peruvian shaman visited me in my dreams 2 nights ago. This works. They said many are called, but few are chosen. I know for sure you are chosen to help humanity, and your brothers and sisters.

Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. From tripping on ayuhuasca in Peru to sucking the evil spirits out of patients, Harner offers an overview of shamanic methods and practices. However, this book is more the high altitude over pass of the landscape. There are seven chapters. It should be pointed out that not all Shaman use psychedelics and Harner describes in detail alternative approaches to achieve altered states of conscious that involve a combination of drumming and meditative practices.
Chapter four describes the concept of power animals and the role that they have in health and illness. I found an interesting corner being turned in this book. However, in the latter half of the book, it reads as though Harner truly believes that the altered state of consciousness is actually a sort of parallel dimension with an intrinsic reality unto itself. At any rate, the book gets a bit wilder as it goes along. In the beginning, the reader might think the book a discussion of how a powerful placebo effect is achieved, but by the latter chapters it seems one is considering how malevolent spirits can be trapped or extracted from a patient.
As for ancillary material, there are line drawn illustrations, annotations, a bibliography, and two appendices. The first appendix is about drumming and gives details about what kind of drums and rattles the would-be Shaman should seek. Drumming plays a major role in achieving the proper state of mind. The second is a detailed description of a game played by the Flathead Indians. I should note that I read the 3rd edition of this book. The original was published in I found the book intriguing as one interested in how people of various cultures achieve altered states of consciousness, how they experience such states, and why they pursue them in the first place.
Crystal Top Contributor: Paperback Verified Purchase. First published in , this is one the "classic" books on shamanism and in retrospect I can appreciate what anthropologist Michael Harner aimed at accomplishing with this book and his work. Many take offense at his work, especially teaching workshops through his Foundation of Shamanic Studies FSS , but my understanding is he uses the funds raised to preserve and document shamanic practices as indigenous cultures disappear and helped to introduce shamanic practices to the West.
I have watched some of his You Tube videos and he comes across as an academic and rather unassuming. He is also a shamanic practitioner, not just academic or author.
Knowing very little about shamanism and not having read the book before the workshop I had no clue what I was about to experience and in retrospect it was a gift I didn't have any preconceived notions about what I "should" be experiencing. During the workshop my hands and feet began to pulse and I also felt heat in my hands during a shamanic exercise.
Since I had no preconceived notions I know what happened was a "pure" experience. I also had some intuitive experiences during the divination exercise that were on the money that I can't explain. This is not a recommendation for Harner's workshops.
I only want to convey my experience made me a believer in shamanic ways and altered states of consciousness. I know after the workshop shamanic practices are not all psychological bunk, drugs, or placebo effect.
In fact I would recommend not taking any drugs as the experience will be totally pure. Regarding Way of the Shaman, it is well written, not too long, and easy to read.
I enjoyed reading Harner's account of his ayahuasca journey. You get a sense of how extremely heightened the senses become on ayahuasca and also how risky it can be to drink ayahuasca without the assistance of an experienced ayahuasca shaman. You can feel his panic when finding himself lost in the jungle. The age of the book shows when Harner refers to tape cassettes, but the centuries old information is still useful.
Harner was one of the first to put together the common threads from many shamanic cultures into a core practice. He explains where the word shaman comes from and that it was selected for use because it was relatively new term not colored by connotations by words such as witch doctor and sorcerer.
While this work may well fall into what has come to be termed neo-shamanism, I make a distinction between this work and blended or new age shamanism such as Reiki-shamanism, shamanism and chakras, etc. Harner bases his work on the actual shamanic practice and as he uses it himself he stays true to the basics of shamanic practices. I also don't feel he enhanced or exaggerated anything like some authors to make it enticing, exciting or add commercial value. I would recommend this book as a good primer for the novice.

It is a great intro to core shamanism. Harner also includes exercises for you to practice journeying, power animal retrieval, etc.
Harner on the last chapter also point out that shamans care for the healthy being of the patients and encourage them to seek western medical help as well. The book contains lots of great information and I really like the fact that it keeps you grounded.
It never makes you feel like you're excluded from the possibilities described within. The guidance in journeying is most appreciated. Prepare yourself.
