Itzcoatl Papalotzin, known as Agustin in Europe, presents his polished personal vision of shamanic philosophy, inviting us to read, enjoy and understand life. The Shaman's Garden is 3 books in 1: a book of knowledge, a poetic book and a book of exercises. Each one is designed to activate a part of your consciousness and create a state of wisdom and well-being. The first part explains shamanic terms, stories and anecdotes in an accessible way, as if around a fire on a full moon night. The second part is full of the mysticism of the navigator of knowledge, taking us on a journey through the cosmic memories of our consciousness. The third part offers the reader access to a methodology that will open the doors to the experience of inner peace.

Agustin (the writer) describes himself as part of the new Toltec lineage. His name 'Itzcoatl Papalotzin' means obsidian butterfly. He is a practising shaman, providing healing, readings and ceremony. The book is adivided into 3. The first book I found very readable and enjoyable, it reads as partly myth and part anecdotes. Sometimes you are led to read on for quite sometime, before realising that the recount is of a dreaming or journey undertaken by the writer. The first part also outlines guiding principles for the path of the impeccable warrior and/or shaman. It is full of teachings; some not always the obvious ones! (Deserves more than one reading and can be dipped in and out of). The second part entitled 'Memories stolen from the dead stars'; is very poetic. It establishes a shamanic world view or cosmology, and reads as a myth from creation to the present time. The last part is more a methodology, a way of getting onto the shamanic path. This part is not really designed to be read from end to end, it is a series of magickal exercises and affirmations. Very worthwhile read to any studying shamanism. Also of interest to those following a magickal path or healers path/self development. I'd file it next to Carlos Castenada 'The Teachings of Don Juan', Taisha Abelar 'The Socerers' Crossing', Michael Harner 'The Way of the Shaman' and Robert Anton Wilson 'Prometheus Rising'.
