Shamanic Journeying offers you an interactive learning experience to discover how to journey just as traditional shamans have for centuries.

-The original role of the shaman in indigenous cultures
-How to meet and work with your "power animals" and other spirit teachers
-How to navigate the Lower World, Upper World, and Middle World -- the three divisions of unseen reality
-The keys to successful journeying in our modern culture
Sharing fascinating accounts of the powerful results of shamanic journeying and answers to the questions common to most beginners, Shamanic Journeying is an accessible guide for exploring the visionary worlds of the shaman.
