The inclusive two-volume Encyclopedia combines the philosophy, concepts, and practical elements that make up shamanism. With over 750 in-depth entries, organized A-Z, the Encyclopedia of Shamanism contains essential information about shamanic methods and practices across cultures, ten introductory essays that clearly discuss the basic concepts of shamanism, bibliography, and cross reference index. Each entry includes sources for further reading.
“On the whole, I was impressed by Pratt’s personal understanding of diverse shamanic trance methodologies and ceremonial traditions, and her ability to explain those practices in unambiguous language. In fact, I was often touched at how she manages to deftly turn seemingly conventional statements into insightful teachings.”
