characters ´ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ☆ Michael Harner

In 1980 Michael Harner blazed the trail for the worldwide revival of shamanism with his seminal classic The Way of the Shaman In this long awaited seuel he provides new evidence of the reality of heavens Drawing from a lifetime of personal shamanic experiences and than 2500 reports of Westerners’ experiences during shamanic ascension Harner highlights the striking similarities between their discoveries indicating that the heavens and spirits they’ve encountered do indeed exist He also provides instructions on his innovative core shamanism techniues so that readers too can ascend to heavenly realms seek spirit teachers and return later at will for additional healing and advice. Published 33 years after his groundbreaking first book The Way of the Shaman Harner shares the wealth of experience he has gathered in training thousands of westerners in the ways of shamanic practice that he has distilled from hundreds of indigenous cultures across the globe This is Harner's magnum opus published only years before his recent passing His is truly a breathtaking legacy Harner compares reports from shamanic cultures and ancient religious texts with reports from the trainees that he has compiled over the last decades to provide a survey of the spiritual landscape accessed through shamanic methods and notes the parallels to reports of near death experiences and parapsychology research that are well documented elsewhere Harner's work has remarkable implications that cannot be easily dismissed The idea of westerners reviving ancient shamanic traditions is a very challenging concept for which Harner makes a remarkable case For anyone prepared to have their worldview radically challenged this is a fascinating read

Cave and Cosmos Shamanic Encounters with Another RealityWritten by the leading authority on shamanism Cave and Cosmos is a must read not only for those interested in shamanism but also for those interested in spirituality comparative religion near death experiences healing consciousness anthropology and the nature of realityPraise for Michael Harner and The Way of the Shaman   “What Yogananda did for Hinduism and D T Suzuki did for Zen Michael Harner has done for shamanism namely bring the tradition and its richness to Western awareness” from Higher Wisdom by Roger Walsh and Charles S Grob   “Wonderful fascinating Harner really knows what he’s talking about” Carlos Castaneda best selling author of The Teachings of Don Jua. I enjoyed reading this book especially the parts where the author recounts his visits to Ameridian population in 50 s and 60 s as part of his first ethnographic study and later as beginner shaman mentioning on the path Alan Ginsberg Carlos Castaneda and others First few chapter give a sense of that time Deliberately I skipped parts which were analysis of westerners journeys Thereby I mean narratives of what the author together with his organization has collected throughout years of facilitating drumming accompanied trance journeys At this point I do not want to be influenced by those narratives At last the author argues for 'core shamanism' which he claims is devoured of cultural context Hence his thesis is that all over the world we had shamanic practices which were embedded in certain culture but that there are also techniues eg drumming that can be isolated from its socio cultural context I have some difficulty accepting this thesis I even noted as a uestion mark on the book is culture free shamanism even possibleI will return to this book and read about drumming instructions in near future for now I am holding it aside
