Product description


The Way Beyond The Shaman is a call for sanity in a world unhinged, and a template for regaining a sacred regard for our only home. Cottrell's focus is on shamanism -- but, unlike many, he does not advocate returning to some primitive state, but transcending and evolving beyond this way of knowing, retaining its essence in a modern world. There is a compelling reason to take this brilliant synthesis seriously: Our survival may depend on it. This is a superb work, an inspired vision by a master artist and wordsmith . --Larry Dossey, MD, Author: The Extraordinary Healing Power Of Ordinary Things and Healing Words

We are beginning to remember who we are and to regain a sense of belonging to the Earth. In this pioneering book, Barry Cottrell guides the reader through the history of shamanism, expresses its profound relevance to our time of remembering and reawakening, pointing the way to a new sense of freedom that also aligns us to the rhythmns of the Earth. --David Lorimer, Programme Director of the Scientific and Medical Network, author of Radical Prince: the Practical Vision of the Prince of Wales and Science, Consciousness, & Ultimate Reality.

Western culture has bestowed many benefits upon individuals, families, and cultures. But at some point, it took a wrong turn resulting in environmental degradation and existential malaise. In this remarkable book, Barry Cottrell evokes the spirit of shamanism to get civilization back on track. History does not go backwards but The Way Beyond the Shaman brilliantly illustrates how this Earth awareness can insure and improve the future of humankind. --Stanley Krippner, Ph.D., Professor of psychology at Saybrook Graduate School, San Francisco and Co-editor, Healing Tales: The Narrative Arts in Spiritual Traditions


The shaman has become a potent symbol of our mystic participation with Earth's spirit. But can shamanism help us regain this primal awareness? "The Way Beyond The Shaman" answers this question by taking the reader on an epic journey back to the origins of shamanism deep within the last ice age. After penetrating to the very roots of shamanism, the book offers a powerful vision of human consciousness evolving into the future, transformed by life-giving spirit of shamanism. A profound transformation of human consciousness is seen to be taking place today, a realignment of mind and body, so that Earth's spirit may once again be perceived and directly, not only by seers and shamans, but by all.The elegant simplicity of the book's radical central thesis is that you don't have to conduct elaborate rituals or engage in strenuous inner journeys to contact or perceive Earth's spirit. It is right there, in the deep celebratory awareness of the dignity and power of our own physical bodies as aspects and expressions of Earth.

Awakening to the spirit of shamanism is an experience accessible to anyone willing to allow the transformative power and elemental physicality of Earth's spirit into their lives.
