This book aims to be a resource for a clear and practical understanding of contemporary shamanism, with a primary focus on Core Shamanism, ( i.e. Harner Method/Western shamanism). The book's main aim is to demystify shamanism and offer an easy to understand overview of the subject through authoritative yet easy to understand A-Z information. As popular interest in shamanism grows so do popular misconceptions of what shamanism is and what a shaman does. 'An A-Z' will be a clear statement of what the practice is and explore simply how it can be of benefit individually, socially and ecologically. The shamanic journey is the most important practice and this modern approach to an ancient spoiritual technology is explained in everyday language to demonstrate its use and extraordinary power.
