"Long before ayahuasca tourism became a pastime for rich gringos, Peter Gorman was knocking around Iquitos and the Amazon. He's traveled the rivers and quaffed the brew with the best (and the worst) of them and been way, way beyond the chrysanthemum on many a dark jungle night. This is the intensely personal story of an old-school jungle rat for whom ayahuasca is not just a hobby, but a life-long quest." -Dennis McKenna, Ph.D, co-author of The Invisible Landscape.
Experience the Primal Spiritual Path of Ancient Egypt. The spiritual traditions of Ancient Egypt are well documented and are at the forefront of the Western Mystery and Magical Tradition. But they are a gloss over a more primal "shamanic" tradition which gets to the essence of Nature and its relationship with humanity, life and death. This book is a practical manual for those who wish to explore that primal spirituality using Egyptian symbolism. As Egypt was one of the village cultures, so Egyptian shamanism was one of the first to operate in an urban environment, making its techniques suitable for modern times. Egyptian Shaman paints the picture of what it was like to be a village priest in ancient Egypt before describing the practical techniques which would have been employed during those times. These techniques, which have never been revealed before, have been adapted for modern minds with the intention of making this a practical spiritual path. The book controversially contains a chapter on exorcism and dealing with the dead, which many have claimed are subjects which should not be published. It shows how later Egyptian texts, such as the Book of the Dead, were Shamanic guide books to the Underworld. This is a book containing the keys to transmute, not only the self, but the whole planet.
For thousands of years hand mudras have been used in India for healing, storytelling, emotional expression, and to evoke and convey elevated spiritual states.
A very unusual book...the results are coherent and timely, adding a different voice to concerns over enviromental degradation. Trees are highly rhythmical and the book makes clear that we disturbed many of their rhythms' -- The Scientific & Medical Network, Winter 2009/10
Peruvian Shamanism - The Pachakuti Mesa by Matthew Magee. From the back cover of the Book: There is an inherent human urge to explore and understand the mysteries of the universe and to discover the role we play within it. In addition, there has also been a consistent inner call to dive into the depths of our hearts, to explore human potential, and to live as examples of authenticity and truth. The Pachakuti Mesa is a personal alter used ceremonially to access spiritual forces and energies for the purposes of healing, the advancement of consciousness, and the restoration of balance on both individual and collective levels. This system of medicine work stems from the Earth-based shamanic practice of Northern Coastal and Southeastern Andean regions of Peru. Ultimately, the Pachakuti Mesa acts as the shamans's tool, an instrument of sacred technology, which is used to access and cultivate an intimate relationship with Spirit, which in its nature is mystery.
