Review quote

What Yogananda did for Hinduism and D.T. Suzuki did for Zen, Michael harner has done for shamanism.--Roger Walsh and Charles S. Grob, authors of Higher Wisdom "Harner has impeccable credentials, both as an academic and as a practicing shaman. Without doubt (since the death of Mircea Eliade) the world's leading authority on shamanism."--Nevill Drury, author of The Elements of Shamanism "An intimate and practical guide to the art of shamanic healing and the technology of the sacred. Michael Harner is not just an anthropologist who has studied shamanism; he is an authentic white shaman."--Stanislav Grof, author of The Adventure of Self-Discovery Wonderful, fascinating...Harner really knows what he's talking about."--Carlos Castaneda
