Das größte Abenteuer der Menschheit Europa vor circa 30.000 Jahren: Der junge Eistaucher wird von dem Schamanen seines Stammes nackt und ohne Hilfsmittel in die Wildnis geschickt. Eistaucher ist auserwählt, einst Dorns Nachfolge anzutreten, und dazu muss er nicht nur lernen, in der Natur zu überleben, sondern auch, die Natur und alles, was Teil von ihr ist, zu verstehen. Auf sich allein gestellt, begegnet Eistaucher den wilden Tieren der Eiszeit – und einer anderen Menschenart, die Jagd auf ihn macht. Das Abenteuer seines Lebens beginnt . . . Eistaucher heißt der Waisenjunge, den der Schamane Dorn aus dem Lager schickt, um zwei Wochen allein und ohne Hilfsmittel in der Wildnis zu überleben. Eistaucher ist auserkoren, einmal Dorns Nachfolge anzutreten, und zu diesem Zweck muss er nicht nur das Überleben in der Natur lernen, sondern auch seine Fähigkeit schulen, mit der Welt und all ihren Geschöpfen »eins zu werden«. Eistaucher trägt von seinem Ausflug zwar einige Verletzungen davon, doch seine Visionen waren so stark, dass er sich nicht mehr vorstellen kann, weiterhin bei seinem Stamm zu leben. Aber welche Freiheit kann es für einen Schamanenschüler in einer Welt geben, in der Bären, Löwen und Luchse lauern und eine andere Menschenart – die rätselhaften »Alten« – Jagd auf ihn macht? Eistaucher bricht auf in eine ungewisse Zukunft – die zugleich die Zukunft der Menschheit ist . . . Ein atemberaubendes Panorama des steinzeitlichen Europas und eine faszinierende Nacherzählung der Menschwerdung – mit Schamane hat Kim Stanley Robinson einen historischen Roman geschrieben, den es so noch nie gab.

Tribal peoples believe that the shaman experiences, absorbs, and communicates a special mode of power, sustaining and healing. This book discusses American Indian shamanic traditions, particularly those of the Woodland Ojibway, in terms drawn from the classical shamanism of Siberian peoples. Using a cultural-historical method, John A. Grim describes the spiritual formation of shamans, male and female, and elucidates the special religious experience that they transmit to their tribes. Writing as a historian of religion well acquainted with ethnological materials, Grim identifies four patterns in the shamanic experience: cosmology, tribal sanction, ritual reenactment, and trance experience. Relating those concepts to the Siberian and Ojibway experiences, he draws on mythology, sociology, anthropology, and psychology to paint a picture of shamanism that is both particularized and interpretative. As religious personalities, shamans are important today because of their singular ability to express symbolically the forces that animate the tribal cosmology. Often identifying themselves with primordial earth processes, shamans develop symbol systems drawn from the archetypal earth images that are vital to their psychic healing technique. This particular ability to resonate with the natural world is felt as an important need in our time. Those readers who identify with American Indians as they confront modern technological society will value this introduction to our native shamanic traditions and to the religious experience itself. The author's discussion of Ojibway practices is the most comprehensive short treatment available, written with a fine poetic feeling that reflects the literary expressiveness inherent in American Indian religion and thought.

The brilliant visionary yarn paintings of the shaman-artist Jose Benitez Sanchez emerge transformed into two-dimensional form from fleeting, sublime visionary experiences triggered by the complex chemistry of the divine peyote cactus. Benitez's visions are of the Huichol universe in Mexico's rugged Sierra Madre Occidental, as that world came into being in the First Times of creation and transformation and in the ongoing magic of a natural environment that is alive and without firm boundaries between the here and now and the ancestral past. Modern yarn paintings—more than 30 in the University of Pennsylvania Museum's collection are illustrated here—have their roots in the sacred art of communication with numberless male and female ancestors and native deities, related in the two remarkable Huichol origin myths also presented here to shed some light on Native American culture and provide some understanding of the religious experience that informs it.

This New York Times Notable Book is a “sweeping historical drama” of a physician and his family on the Illinois frontier in the nineteenth century (The New York Times Book Review). Dr. Robert Judson Cole travels from his ravaged Scotland homeland, through the operating rooms of Boston, to the cabins of frontier Illinois. In the wilderness he befriends the starving remnants of the Sauk tribe, who have fled their reservation. In the process, he absorbs their culture and learns native remedies that enrich the classical medical education he received at Edinburgh University. He marries a remarkable settler woman he had saved from illness. The details of how their deaf son manages to become a physician also, despite his handicap, and the story of how the Cole family is sucked into the bloody vortex of the Civil War and survives, makes an exceptional reading experience.

Combining elements of Andrew Weil's SPONTANEOUS HEALING and Carolyn Myss's ANATOMY OF THE SPIRIT with a concept all its own, Alberto Villoldo's remarkable book, Shaman, Healer, Sage demonstrates the healing power of energy medicine - a tradition practised in the Americas for more than 5,000 years - which is finally being recognized today by the medical establishment. As he explores such subjects as the Luminous Energy Field that surrounds our bodies, Villoldo shows us how, by learning to see and influence the imprints of disease on this aura of energy, we can discover not only how to heal ourselves and others, but prevent illness as well. Here too, he explores the subject of life beyond death, navigating this unseen world with the knowledge of a scientist and the wisdom of a shamanic healer. Classically trained as a medical anthropologist and a foremost teacher of the shamanic techniques of the Inkas, among whose descendants he has studied for more than twenty-five years, Villoldo weaves together a host of illuminating stories and exercises to provide an accessible, practical, and revolutionary programme of healing.

A renowned psychotherapist's and scholar's significant and inspiring work on the relation of shamanism to both the psyche and society. Shows the relevance of shamanism to the modern world and how it can lead to a creative and affirmative relationship with life. The Shaman's Doorway is one of the most significant and inspiring works on the relation of shamanism to both the psyche and society. Drawing on his own experience as a psychotherapist and his understanding of primordial shamanic traditions, Stephen Larsen shows the relevance of this path to the modern world and how it can lead to a creative and affirmative relationship with life. Defining the task of the shaman as one of bringing meaning and healing into life, and creating a sense of growing accord with the root of all being, Larsen clearly shows how the shaman, all too often perceived as belonging to the world's past, actually holds the key to our future.

Man, unwittingly, weaves the fabric of his life to perfection, much like the spider mindlessly spins the perfect web. There is great beauty in the process, a beauty which is only perceived in retrospect, toward life's end. Tao Shaman follows one man's journey from youth's blinding impetuousness to the enveloping clarity of maturity's hindsight, only to arrive at the inescapable realization that each man has but one course to follow, a course that he alone can navigate. To this extent, we are all wise men.
