What people are saying about this work:
"This newly released book is a scholarly, but quite readable, collection of short essays about shamanism by one of our own from Camano Island, Professor Norman Wilson, PhD. Dr. Wilson has had a lifetime of interest in the subject since his first encounter, together with his mother, with a shamanka, a female shaman, at the tender age of seven. These essays reveal what a shaman is, what they do, and how they do it, while dispelling a number of misconceptions about them. He briefly describes the shaman as a healer who regularly travels between the worlds of spirit and ordinary reality to assist the patient in reintroducing harmony among the body, mind and soul. This is a fascinating read and leaves one wanting to dig in deeper." ~~Bill Thorn
"Shamanism: What It's All About is an intriguing work. Kudos to Dr. Wilson, and I look forward to his fiction series, The Shamanic Mysteries." ~~Jacquie Rogers
