Shamanism is the oldest living path of spirituality and healing, dating back tens of thousands of years, yet many people don't know what it is or are confused about the practice. In The Hollow Bone, shaman, teacher, and author Colleen Deatsman unveils the mysterious world of Shamanism as it is still practiced today all around the world.

Deatsman explains that shamanism is not a religion with a doctrine, dogma, or holy book. Rather, it is a spirituality rooted in the idea that all matter has consciousness and that accessing the spirit in all things is part of what keeps the world in balance and individuals healed and whole.

The Hollow Bone examines shamanism's history, its core beliefs, and how it is practiced all around the world. It includes a glossary of terms, resources for finding and working with shamanic teachers, and over two dozen rare photographs and illustrations showing the magnificent range of shamanic tools, rituals, practitioners, and traditions.

This comprehensive introduction answers many frequently asked questions such as:What is shamanism? Where is it practiced? What are the beliefs and understandings inherent to shamanism?Who are the shamans?What do shamans do?Can anyone train to be a shaman?Where can I learn more?

The Hollow BoneA Field Guide to Shamanismby Colleen DeatsmanI learned a lot in this 188 page guide to Shamanism on it's deepest and most basic of levels. I learned that Shamans are energy workers and they are very loving and caring practitioners. I learned about different paths and how they became that way. I found the list of traditional functions of a Shaman to be completely fascinating.What felt very special to me was the thorough way the author helps us to connect to the practices ourselves, and I walked away with such a better understanding of how I can use this sacred path in my own life. I would recommend this blessed teacher to anyone drawn to Shamanism, plain and simple. Thanks Colleen, for your humble labor of love.Love & Light,Riki Frahmannmore
