This award-winning experiential guide reveals how you can immediately begin to transform your life by following the ancient path of the shaman. Using hands-on exercises and engaging true stories, the book draws on decades of shamanic practice and academic study into ancient European traditions.
Within its pages, you will discover how to journey to the otherworlds of the shaman and meet your power animal and spirit guides. You will use dreamwork to find answers to problems, use natural omens to predict the future and understand the past, and clear your home of all that holds you back. Following the authentic role of the shaman, you will also learn how to heal, extracting harmful spirits and bringing back the soul to those who have lost them.
Written to appeal to both beginners and experienced practitioners, and winning a Silver Medal at the 2010 Independent Publisher Book Awards, Follow the Shaman's Call shows how to use shamanic practices to take charge of your life, heal your friends and community, and live in harmony with the world. Called 'life-changing' by one reader, this book shows shamanism is an ancient path for modern lives.
"[This book] clearly explains the basic concepts and worldview of shamanism. It is therefore both a ‘doing’ and a ‘theory’ book all rolled into one, and all the better for it. [Mike] writes in a clear way which brings the subject alive, and throughout I found it an interesting and thought provoking read. If you have an interest in early history and a desire to expand your shamanic practice…this is a book for you.” Sacred Hoop.
“The style is informal and accessible, and each chapter begins with a dramatized account of an ancient event…which draws the reader in. The author advises rather than dictates [and] all the teachings and exercises are of relevance to modern life, whilst having their roots in the past.” Touchstone.
"Williams does an excellent job of describing just what Shamanism is, how to go about practicing it and just what kind of life you'll lead as a shaman. He doesn't pander, he doesn't pull punches. He just tells it like it is and I really liked that. I found it immensely helpful and I plan on making it wholly dog-eared by the time I'm done with it." GoodReads.
