This classic on shamanism pioneered the modern shamanic renaissance. It is the foremost resource and reference on shamanism.

Michael Harner is not just an anthropologist who has studied shamanism; he is an authentic white shaman."

This is an interesting introduction to shamanism. The book discusses shamanism as much as it gives instruction in certain practices. I doubt you actually could become a shaman from simply reading this book, maybe if you were extremely dedicated or had a special talent for it you could. This is more to find out what it is, and what it is not.
The formatting of my copy was not the best, and the writing style not one I found gripping, so it was not a quick or easy read for me. I would have liked for it to be more engaging, but this is a non-fiction book not a story for pure entertainment. This is something to read out of genuine interest of the subject matter, otherwise you will not enjoy it. ( )

Excellent on technique, rather boring to read, another "go-to" manual for people practicing shamanic healing work. ( )

I read this because it was on The Ultimate Reading List for "Inspirational Non-fiction." It was one of only a few on that list I thought might be of interest to me given Harner was a anthropologist that had studied shamanism in the field as well as practicing it--I thought he might have some insightful things to say about it. I found this instead to be a rather silly book I couldn't take seriously. I probably should have known better given where the book was located in the bookstore--under "New Age - Magical Practice." I'm a thoroughgoing rationalist, really not the target market for this book, so I considered neither rating nor reviewing. In the end I decided to do so to:

1) Remind me I read this already and not to ever bother again to read Harner.

2) Let those on my Goodreads friends list who actually believe in Wicca and the like know something about the book so they'll know if this is something they'd like.

3) Tell my writer friends, some of whom write speculative fiction, about this book in case they're looking for something upon which to model fictional magical practice.

Harner defines a shaman as a "man or woman who enters an altered state of consciousness--at will--to contact and utilize an ordinarily hidden reality to acquire knowledge, power, and to help other persons." In the first chapter, "Discovering the Way," Harner relates how after taking psychedelic drugs given to him by the Conibo tribe of the Amazon river, he experienced hallucinations he believed to be genuine visions. He then went back to an Andes tribe he'd studied, the Jivaro, and asked for mystical training--more psychedelic drugs, more "visions" and after that he became a practicing Shaman.

In his introduction he says of his book that the "main focus here is to provide an introductory handbook of shamanic methodology for health and healing." He proposes various exercises to alter consciousness without drugs, primarily through "drumming, rattling, singing, and dancing." His first exercise is designed to take you on a "Shamanic Journey...through the Tunnel into the Lower World." Also described are rituals such as a "spirit quest" to find your "power animal," and once found, how to keep this spiritual guide by regularly "exercising your animal." There is also mention of "power songs," "power intrusions" and "medicine bundles" filled with "power objects" that include the indispensable "quartz crystal."

In other words, the usual New Age stuff, but not anything that really discusses rigorously Shamanistic practices in indigenous and pre-Industrial cultures or useful to someone interested in ethnography or comparative religion. ( )

This book a classic when it comes to neoshamanism and core shamanism

This book has some issues for me though. I think one of the biggest ones being that the author doesn’t really go into the dangers of journeying outside a few mentions and doesn’t really give any techniques for defenses. Another is that a few techniques and ideas for practice are not very practically to most people, such as the use of tobacco, the idea of a partner drumming for you while journeying, using games that involve more than two or more people to practice shamanic techniques, and so on.

However, as a basic read on core shamanism and for a read on a classic which helped begin it all, its not a bad book to add to a list to start off with though its certainly not the best stand alone book. ( )

While I truly appreciate the information and insight Harner has brought to the west, his writing is amazingly academic and cerebral. If you are seeking an experiential glimpse of shamanism or a more instructional text, this book is not it. To learn *why* shamanism, absorb every page. ( )

Shamans --- whom we in the "civilized" world have called "medicine men" and "witch doctors" --- are the keepers of a remarkable body of ancient techniques that they use to achieve and maintain well-being and healing for themselves and members of their communities.
