Reviews of The Way of the Shaman

Wonderful, fascinating...Harner really knows what he's talking about.

Carlos Castaneda

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.

Stanislov Grof, author of The Adventure of Self-Discovery

Harner has impeccable credentials, both as an academic and as a practicing shaman. Without doubt (since the recent death of Mircea Eliade) the world's leading authority on shamanism.

Nevill Drury, author of The Elements of Shamanism

Reviews of Cave and Cosmos

"Cave and Cosmos" is a treasure trove of information on core shamanism and is bound to become a classic in the global renaissance of shamanism that Michael Harner initiated with his earlier "The Way of the Shaman."

Stanslov Grof, author of Psychology of the Future and When the Impossible Happens

Not since Eliade's "Shamanism" and Harner's "The Way of the Shaman" has there been a more valuable contribution to the field than "Cave and Cosmos." Definitely a classic for all time.

Angeles Arrien, PhD, anthropologist and former president of the Foundation for Cross-Cultural Education and Research

Harner calls shamanism "a path of independence leading toward spiritual freedom — freedom to know, not just believe." In "Cave and Cosmos," readers will find experiential stories and practices, leading from a "belief" in spirits to be replaced by "knowledge." Spirits are as real as family and friends in ordinary reality.
