Shamanism has achieved a dramatic modern resurgence. Recent studies by the world’s foremost scholars on shamanism reveal that the contemporary world still hungers for transcendent experiences because the shamanic narrative is hard-wired in us all. Study results demonstrate that the cross-cultural manifestations of shamanism and its contemporary appeal are rooted in innate functions of consciousness.
Many people in today’s world are being called by spirit to become shamans. A yearning exists deep within many of us to reconnect to the natural world. It is a call to a life lived in balance with awareness of nature, of spirit, and of self.
In his third drum guide, Shamanic Drumming, Michael Drake recounts his journey into shamanic practice and explores what someone should do if they feel the call to become a shaman. He has written a guide to becoming a shamanic healer that encompasses the power of the drum, of community, and of the accountability inherent in authentic shamanic practice.
