Techniques of Modern Shamanism Vol 3 - Touched by Fire
by Phil Hine
Excerpt from Introduction:
The aim of this book is to go some way towards exploring the evolving perspective of 'Urban Shamanism'. It's not really a training manual like its predecessors, but gives one viewpoint (mine) on tackling the problem of living and acting from a broadly shamanic stance, within a city culture. Starting out with the premise that shamanic work is less of a purely personal trip and more related to the recovery of a functional role that individuals may come to play in their community, I have tried to preset a clear picture of my own approach, in the hope that it may point others to explore what remains, largely, unknown territory.
