What Is Shamanism?
What is Shamanism? is the product of a collaboration between eleven leading shaman authors and practitioners, each tasked with the discussion of a particular central aspect or theme. The result serves as both an excellent introduction to anyone coming to shamanism for the first time and a stimulating read for the more experienced shaman interested in engaging with contemporary thinking and debate.
This anthology includes my essay about the foundational role of animism in the shamanic worldview and how it affects spirituality that involves spiritwork practices. This is an aspect of shamanism that many people don't even realize is there, much less how deeply it impacts the way shamanic practice interacts with the world.
