Every indigenous society throughout the world has had its own version of the shaman - a man or woman, who can, at will, enter into altered states of consciousness in order to acquire knowledge and healing power. Today, people in the Western world are beginning to recognise that in our drive for material comfort we have lost our vital connection with the sacred dimensions of life and, as a result, our own authentic selves. Our culture is once again turning to the shaman to help guide us back into a state of divine reverence, for ourselves and the world around us. In Traveling Between The Worlds, Hillary Webb invites us to eavesdrop on her conversations with twenty-four of the most influential teachers and writers of shamanism today. The conversations cover a multitude of topics pertaining to the shaman's path. For anyone who has ever had the desire to look at the world through the eyes of the shaman, Traveling Between The Worlds is a treasure trove of insight and exploration into the teachings of this ancient path.
"From this diversity of modern shamanic teachers, a truth emerges; we need to connect with the sacredness of everyday life in order to learn how to deal with the problems of today. Traveling between the Worlds shows us how." --Arnold Mindell, author of The Shaman's Body and The Quantum Mind and Healing--Reviews
