For generation after generation, Toltec shamans have passed down their wisdom through teaching stories. The purpose of these stories is to implant a seed of knowledge in the mind of the listener, where it can ultimately sprout and blossom into a new and better way of life. In The Wisdom of the Shamans: What the Ancient Masters Can Teach Us About Love and Life, Toltec shaman and master storyteller don Jose Ruiz shares some of the most popular stories from his family's oral tradition and offers corresponding lessons that illustrate the larger ideas within each story. Ruiz begins by explaining that contrary to the stereotypical image of "witch doctor," the ancient shamans were men and women who fulfilled several roles within their communities: philosopher, spiritual guide, medical doctor, psychologist, and friend. According to Ruiz, their teachings are not primitive or reserved for a chosen few initiates but are instead a powerful series of lessons on love and life that are available to us all. To that aim, he has included exercises, meditations, and shamanic rituals to help you experience the personal transformation these stories offer. The shamans taught that the truth you seek is inside of you. Let these stories, lessons, and tools be your guide to finding the innate wisdom that lives within.

In Discovering Your Spirit Animal, shamanic healer Lucy Harmer presents a practical approach to understanding spirit animals and applying their power to specific situations in daily life. Written in clear, simple language and featuring compelling stories and anecdotes, the book explains what a spirit animal is, describes its purpose, and shows that understanding the “medicine” of one’s spirit animal—assimilating its qualities and characteristics—allows one to apply the lessons and messages they convey and use them for personal transformation. Lucy Harmer notes that particular animals that cross one’s path or appear repeatedly nearby probably want us to share in their medicine, their teaching, their energy, and their spirit. Discovering Your Spirit Animal provides guidance for meeting and getting to know one’s spirit animal through easy exercises and shamanic techniques. Lucy Harmer explains how to discover the strengths, qualities, and skills one shares with one’s personal spirit animal, enabling one to learn how to reinforce this connection and access innate wisdom and inner power, overcome fears, increase natural healing capacity, and improve relationships.

Shamanic Secrets Lost Wisdom Regained

Shamanic Secrets  Lost Wisdom Regained

You don’t have to get along without things you need. You need food, comfortable shelter, good health, and time to enjoy life. This book does not provide all the answers to all your questions.

Due to wars, natural disasters, a shaman not being able to train a successor, and many other reasons, Isis (through Robert) says that 95 percent of the accumulated shamanic wisdom has been lost. Now it is important to regain this wisdom as young people who are able to learn and use these processes are being born now. Beings who lived as shamans and healers on Earth at various times now speak through Robert Shapiro and bring these lost teachings and techniques to a humanity waking up and discovering it has the talents and abilities to use this wisdom for the benefit of all. “This is a time on Earth when people are being rent asunder by dramas in their lives and are overwhelmed by dramas in the lives of others or are sometimes attached to the dramatic events of the day. In times gone by, there were people who provided knowledge, wisdom, and comfort to ease life for their people. “This book is entirely about finding comfort and ease through life. You don’t have to struggle. You don’t have to find substitutes for things you don’t have. You don’t have to get along without things you need. You need food, comfortable shelter, good health, and time to enjoy life. This book does not provide all the answers to all your questions. Rather, it is the beginning of much more to come. “Some of you are interested in how others lived their lives in the past, but most of you — especially those who need something, want something, or are desperately trying to acquire something — are interested in how people from the past acquired those things. Some of the suggestions will seem fantastic or impossible to you. Don’t assume that. Some of you will find you can produce, in some way, a portion of what those shamans from the past were able to do. This might be easier for those of you already on your spiritual path. Even if you are not on any particular spiritual path, don’t assume you cannot do these things.” — Speaks of Many Truths

From the rainforests of the Amazon to the remotes of the Andes, an eminent seeker describes the path that brought him to discover the traditions of Huachuma shamanism. Based on the clear laws of nature in both the material and energetic dimensions, the shaman's world reflects 5,000 years of Huachuma philosophies of harmony and oneness-as shown through totem animals, elements of nature, physical archetypes, and energy postures. His experiences offers possibilities for deep healing in all aspects of life, including wellbeing, relationships, and child rearing, and his ideas are presented as simple, profound wisdoms that are palatable and beneficial to other seekers without requiring additional shamanic experience."Shaman's Wisdom is a book that will become a source of reference for years to come and should be part of the library of everyone seeking wisdom and enlightenment. Well written, in depth research and a subject truly engrained in the author's soul, make this an excellent read that is highly recommended by this reviewer." - Shirley A. Roe, Allbooks Review International allbooksreviewint.com"Thank you Tony for writing from your heart and the deepest part of you. This is the first book of yours I'd ever read, thanks to the interview of you in front of a loud London train (thanks again, YouTube), and the book was a page turner I could barely put down - From your personal experiences to the spiritual insights, message of Unity and Totality and loving, practical wisdom and Shamanic exercises, and more - This was exactly what I needed to read at this stage of my journey." - Vivian Bryan, USA"I can honestly say my life's changed over the last few years with the help of his teachings which are filled with profound wisdom yet are simple and accessible to understand. This book helped me to reconnect with life's essence. I am so grateful for having access to one more product of Tony's work!" - Sibra, Portugal"Having personally worked with the author, this book brought me the freshness of his words into a format which is possible to savour slowly, get back to, read again certain parts. It shows in a very easily readable and interesting way the teachings and what the author learned himself from the many years he spent in south america with indigenous people." - Kaya, Portugal"There's a quality of authenticity, depth and sensitivity in this book that keeps me inspired each time I read it. And I've read it many times! Tony Samara is for real, there is no hogus bogus or false new agey shamanism here. He's lived in the Amazon with the shamans for many years, has been initiated in their healing ways and then decided to leave South America, to share these ancient peoples' wisdom with the western world. I love shamanism and have read some books on the topic (all the big names out there) but almost always have felt disappointed - they are far too left brained, analytical, methodological, or, at the other end of the spectrum, unrealistic, unworkable, with a focus on the psychoactive experiences of Ayahuasca or other sacred plants... but forgetting all the other aspects of what it means to be a shaman. Tony's book is totally different - it makes the bridge between the fantastic and sometimes inaccessible world of the shamans and our real lives. Dozens of practical helpful tips, meditations, breathing exercises, chants, are included for everyone who wants to go deeper into themselves and bring the wonderful world of shamans into their everyday lives. The book is easy to read, accessible and the profound wisdom contained in it is passed on to the reader without us even noticing it! That's the beauty of this little magical book.

For anyone who’s ever had the desire to look at the world through the eyes of our indigenous ancestors, here is a unique opportunity. Traveling between the Worlds is a treasure trove of insight and exploration into the ancient spiritual wisdom of such diverse cultures as Ireland, Africa, and the Americas. The keeper of this wisdom is the shaman--a man or woman who can, at will, enter into altered states of consciousness in order to acquire extrasensory knowledge and healing power. In this important book, Hillary S. Webb invites us to eavesdrop on her conversations with some of today’s most influential teachers and writers of shamanism. While the conversations cover a variety of topics pertaining to the shaman’s path and practice, this book explores how we in the modern world can use these ancient teachings to help ourselves, each other, and the world around us. Included in this book are conversations with:Renowned author and environmentalist John Perkins, who brings corporate executives to the Amazon to teach them the value of merging business and eco-philosophy.Rabbi Gershon Winkler, who uses the beliefs and techniques of the Jewish shamanic tradition to bring Israelis and Palestinians together on common, and more peaceful, ground--their indigenous roots.“Renegade” shaman Ken Eagle Feather of the Toltec tradition, who explains how modern technology can help us evolve into the next level of perception.Peruvian shaman Oscar Miro-Quesada, whose ideas on life and death may alter your view of reality itself. And that is just the beginning.

The Wisdom of the Serpent

The Wisdom of the Serpent

A veiled but distinctly discernible reference to shamanism is reported in The
Valley of Dry Bones, while The Death of Odin conveys the spirit of mantic wisdom
combined with inspired action to be learned in this type of death and rebirth
pattern.

The tribal initiation of the shaman, the archetype of the serpent, exemplifies the death of the self and a rebirth into transcendent life. This book traces the images of spiritual initiation in religious rituals and myths of resurrection, poems and epics, cycles of nature, and art and dreaming. It dramatizes the metamorphosis from a common experience of death's inevitability into a transcendent freedom beyond individual limitations. "This is a classic work in analytical psychology that offers crucial insights on the meaning of death symbolism (and its inevitably accompanying rebirth and resurrection symbolism) as part of the great theme of initiation, of which [Henderson] is the world's foremost psychological interpreter. This material is really the next step after the hero myth that Joseph Campbell has made so popular, and provides an understanding of how not to use the hero myth in an inflated way as a psychology of mastery, but as an attainment progressively to be died beyond. [Henderson] is helped by the presence of Maud Oakes, who is a trained anthropologist with exquisite taste in her choice of mythic materials and respect for their original contexts."--John Beebe

A doctor's astounding story of promising new treatments from the rainforests of Brazil for diseases that compromise the immune system. During a working visit to Brazil, Dr. Thomas David was given a packet of leaves and bark by a native patient as thanks for his work, and a shaman gave him a recipe for a tea used by the rainforest people to treat a variety of ailments. Dr. David began using these plants in his clinical research in Europe and soon discovered that they were producing amazing results among patients suffering from cancer, AIDS, and other diseases that compromise the immune system. Preliminary studies performed at Stanford and Harvard have substantiated his findings, bringing Dr. David international attention for his groundbreaking work. Dr. David's story is significant not only for its account of research that may herald a major breakthrough in curing diseases that have been the scourge of the modern world, but also for its emphasis on the vast and largely unrecognized pharmacopoeia of the rainforest that is in imminent danger of being lost forever.
