If you wish to learn about shamanism and learn about healing techniques and ceremony, then I recommend the books below. They cover many methodologies, and some include the author's shamanic initiation story.

(This listing is alphabetical by author.)


Plant Spirit Medicine: The Healing Power of Plants
by Eliot Cowan
PLANT SPIRIT MEDICINE by Eliot Cowan
This book explains how to connect with the spirits of the plants we use for healing; it melds the physical use of the plants with their spiritual usage. It integrates shamanism, plants, and healing techniques.

The Way of the Shaman by Michael Harner
THE WAY OF THE SHAMAN by Michael Harner
Michael Harner was the granddaddy of the shamanism rebirth in western society. He was the anthropologist who went beyond the academic study of shamanic cultures and became a shaman himself. This book has many wonderful stories and techniques for you to learn.

Soul Retrieval: Mending the Fragmented Self
by Sandra Ingerman
SOUL RETRIEVAL by Sandra Ingerman
This is the book that changed my life. When I read it, I saw a new and wonderful and different value system that explained the balance between ordinary life and the hidden compassionate spirits always around us. I later went to a shamanic workshop, and my life changed in wondrous ways.

Fools Crow: Wisdom and Power
by Thomas E. Mails
FOOLS CROW by Thomas E. Mails
This is another book I loved reading. Fools Crow led a holy life, and this book immerses you in that as much as any book can. Fools Crow was a great healer. Many of his ceremonies and rituals are described.

Riding Windhorses: A Journey into the Heart
of Mongolian Shamanism by Sarangerel
RIDING WINDHORSES by Sarangerel
This is a book by a woman who became a Mongolian and Siberian shaman. It is full of ritual and ceremonies. It is a personal account and well worth reading and study.

The Shaman: Voyages of the Soul: Trance, Ecstasy and
Healing from Siberia to the Amazon by Piers Vitebsky
THE SHAMAN, VOYAGES OF THE SOUL by Piers Vitebsky
This is a marvelously illustrated book. It presents a great overview of shamanic practices around the world. An excellent introduction to the worldwide scope of shamanism.
