Recommended Reading and Audio in Shamanism

Following are my Recommended Reading and Audio in Shamanism.

I have read the books and listened to the audio listed.

Shamananism has been practiced worldwide for some 10,000 years although the names of the practice, and the practitioners, is specific to the culture in which it is found.

Recommended Reading and Audio in Shamanism

My shamanic practice in my daily life is based on Core Shamanism, Celtic Shamanism, and shamanic practices from my teachers from other cultures including Mexico, Zimbabwe, Canada, the UK, and the USA, that they have shared with me either directly or through the books and audios listed on this page.

Celtic Shamanism in particular resonated with me as my ancestral background is Scottish, Welsh, English, Russian, and Finnish.

Core Shamanism

As my shamanic practice is based on Core Shamanism I recommend beginning with two books by Michael Harner the founder of the The Foundation for Shamanic Studies:

  1. The Way of the Shaman, and his follow-up
  2. Cave and Cosmos.

These two books will give you a solid insight into the history of shamanism and Core Shamanism as well as providing you with instructions on how to begin to add shamanic practice to your life.
