5.0 out of 5 stars Very readable book about Days' development of modern shamanism., 27 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Post-Tribal Shamanism: A New Look at the Old Ways (Kindle Edition)
Day here shares his own cosmology and shamanic methodology which appears to be some of the content teaches in his workshops around the US. Interestingly, his approach seems to avoid the accusation of "cultural theft of traditional cultures" aimed at many modern forms of shamanism by explaining that his techniques have been taught him by his own spirit guides and this book certainly contains some methods which are not the usual "core" shamanic techniques used by many shamanic practitioners in the West. I also detected some elements of the Western Mystery Schools in his spiritual approach and it is none the worse for that. Day gives practical details of various shamanic journeys and techniques throughout the book which some people may wish to try and others could find distracting. Overall I found this book quite refreshing and stimulating and I think it could be enjoyable to a "newcomer" to Western forms of shamanism, as well as to someone who has been practising various shamanic techniques for some years.
