Newest addition to my bookshelf - The Way Of The Shaman by Michael Harner

"Some call them 'witch doctors' or 'medicine men', but now an increasing number of Western health professionals are seriously studying the astonishing healing powers of the shamans. Anthropologist Michael Harner takes us on a personal odyssey to the source of shamanic healing: one's innermost self. Step by step he leads the reader through simple techniques and exercises to achieve altered states of consciousness without drugs - the shaman's way to profound psychological fitness and curing. Here, in an ancient system little known to the West, is an invaluable aid to modern medicine, and an enthralling work of psychological and spiritual exploration."
