Author(s): Michael J. Harner

mind spirit religion philosophy

In 1980, Michael Harner blazed the trail for the worldwide revival of shamanism with his seminal classic "The Way of the Shaman. "In this long-awaited sequel, he provides new evidence of the reality of heavens.
Drawing from a lifetime of personal shamanic experiences and more than 2,500 reports of Westerners' experiences during shamanic ascension, Harner highlights the striking similarities between their discoveries, indicating that the heavens and spirits they've encountered do indeed exist. He also provides instructions on his innovative core-shamanism techniques, so that readers too can ascend to heavenly realms, seek spirit teachers, and return later at will for additional healing and advice.
Written by the leading authority on shamanism, "Cave and Cosmos" is a must-read not only for those interested in shamanism, but also for those interested in spirituality, comparative religion, near-death experiences, healing, consciousness, anthropology, and the nature of reality.

The pioneering work of MICHAEL HARNER, PhD, brought shamanism to the West. In 1979, he and his wife, Sandra Harner, created the Center for Shamanic Studies, which later became the Foundation for Shamanic Studies, the world's foremost shamanic training organization. In 1987, he left academia to devote himself full-time to shamanism. His classic books on the subject have been translated into many languages.
