The 'how-to' guidebook that blends stories from Ya'acov Darling Khan's experiences as a shamanic teacher with transformational exercises and rituals designed to bring shamanism into the 21st century.
A new way to connect to the cycle of life through ancient shamanic practices for modern-day spiritual seekers.
Shaman presents a series of principles, structures, and inspirations through which readers can design their own organic rituals in a way that feels meaningful to them, regarless of belief, faith or superstition. Starting with a short history of shamanism, the book goes on to support the reader to understand and experience how rituals can be useful in their day-to-day lives, illustrated with real-life stories from shamanic healer Ya'Acov Darling Khan's extensive experience over several decades of teaching. The core purpose of the book is to educate the reader about how to use the practice of ritual consciously in order to change their experience of life.
In Shaman, readers will find a step-by-step experiential journey through what is called the 5 Dimensions of Engaged Shamanic Practice. These are:
*1st dimension: our relationship with the Self
*2nd dimension: our one-to-one relationship with others
*3rd dimension: our relationship with the community or the Web of Life
*4th dimension: our relationship with the imaginal world and the spirits
*5th dimension: our relationship with the Great Spirit or Source
This book will appeal to long-term spiritual seekers and the growing number of new readers interested in shamanism. Blending stories of transformational journeys with practical exercises, Shaman shows the way to deeply spiritual, ancient practices and how we can implement them in a changing modern landscape.
