Shamanism is a major thrust of the spiritual reawakening that is going on in the West because of the ease with which the method is learned and practiced. Many of us in the West are learning the ancient time-tested ways of the Shaman. Dr. Hank Wesselman, paleoanthropologist, mystic, and author of both Spiritwalker and Medicinemaker, reveals how access to the spirit world allows shamans to manifest things on behalf of their people.
A shaman discovers, typically at an early age, the ability to induce expanded states of consciousness, journeying out of body into an alternate reality. Dr. Wesselman believes that through collective consciousness we all at least have access to this doorway and through it some learn to spiritwalk.
