The Shaman's Body: A New Shamanism for Transforming Health, Relationships, and the Community
From the author of Dreambody - a pioneering method of using crisis as a dynamic opportunity for accessing our inner world, confronting our fears, and catalyzing self-discovery.
From Library Journal
Mindell, the author of Dreambody (1982) and an experienced shaman who has encountered African, Native American, Australian aboriginal, and Indian Hindu healers firsthand, outlines the process of accessing one's "dreambody" and developing a shamanic approach to everyday life. Each chapter wanders freely from modern psychotherapeutic understandings, enriched by Mindell's experiences, to what he learned from traditional cultures; most conclude with exercises to help the reader personally appropriate the teachings. Mindell is especially adept at putting learning from exotic cultures into accessible terms. Recommended for larger public libraries and academic libraries.
