Awaken the Inner Shaman by Jose Luis Stevens

Jose Stevens writes that “Within you is a greater, wiser self that is not bound by your fears, worries, or perceived limitations.” And he calls this greater, wiser self, the Inner Shaman – the part of you that connects directly to the true source of the universe.

“The shamans of every tradition know that the physical world we can see and touch is a mere shadow of the true spirit world,” writes Dr. Stevens.

In this wonderful book Jose Stevens walks us through a process to discover and connect with our own Inner Shaman.

  • Seeing through the heart – why the heart offers us the most immediate path for accessing the Inner Shaman
  • Illuminating the Inner Shaman through spirituality, quantum physics, medical science, and experiential knowing
  • The Inner Shaman in action – how to stop living from the egoic mind and put your true essence in charge
  • Eight tools to strengthen your connection to the Inner Shaman, and much more

As Dr. Stevens writes: “The Inner Shaman, suppressed and ignored for centuries, can be discovered in the most obvious place possible – within your own heart.”

I really enjoy this book. Awaken the Inner Shaman: A Guide to the Power Path of the Heart has become part of my basic library that helps me as I follow my own shamanic path.

The Power Path by Jose Luis Stevens and Lena Stevens

In The Power Path: The Shaman’s Way to Success in Business and Life by Jose Luis Stevens and Lena Stevens, based on years of study with shamans, share a new way of thinking about the nature of power. By applying shamanic traditions of power to the workplace, readers learn how to improve work relationships, understand employees’ strengths and limitations, and inspire effective teamwork — techniques aimed ultimately at increasing business success.

According to José Stevens and Lena Stevens, business leaders and shamans share many important traits: the abilities to solve problems, to achieve goals, to see the big picture, and to forecast events. What their previous book, Secrets of Shamanism, did for the growth of the individual, The Power Path does for the growth of business managers and entrepreneurs.
