Editorial Reviews

Review

I've read the book 3 times now - twice in pre-publication and once just last week. I rarely read a book more than once - in fact I can't ever recall doing so and each time I read Dance of Stones I am taken deeper into the journey. I sum it up in the form of a book review like this: Dance of Stones is a book written about searchers for searchers - those who are not satisfied with sleep walking through life, but rather seek to awaken to their true selves. Cleverly crafted, the Deepenings at the end of each chapter inform the reader about shamanic practice while at the same time the story informs the Deepenings. You cannot read Dance of Stones without being drawn in and changed by the journey. If you have any interest in Western magick or Shamanism, I highly recommend this as a must read! --Marlene Feder

Dance of Stones gripped me. From the first page to the last, it took me along on a true Quest. It is not only the story of two people on a sojourn to far off lands....it is journey of the human soul's awakening. Soli's experiences confirm the presence and process of some Powerful, ancient Source, that yearns to unfold within us....and for those of us hearing the Call....potent tools with which to answer. This book is a transformative MUST read for all Seekers. I wish I would have had it years ago. Thank you Kenn for writing this book! --Celeste Stone

I love to read and I buy many books but I don't always finish them for one reason or another.

A very readable, informative, and potentially transformative read -- I highly recommend this to anyone with an interest in modern shamanism.

The author does a wonderful job of telling the story, making you feel as though you are there with them on their journey.

I love to read and I buy many books but I don't always finish them for one reason or another. This is one that I read from cover to cover, losing myself in the story and living the journey. It is one of the most realistic and down to earth approaches in guiding one on a path of self awareness, development, and empowerment I have come across in a long time. Here is a book for the beginner just getting started on their path and for the advanced looking for refreshing inspiration and reminders. The simplicity of the story and the clarity in describing the path to becoming a modern day shaman both demystifies the subject as well as shows you the way to opening doorways your own deepest mysteries.

Format: Paperback
This is the kind of book I love - one that can be taken primarily as a story or as an easy text about mystical practices that is interwoven with a true story. Each chapter includes both, story and "Deepenings," that balance one another perfectly. The story is about the week-long road trip that 2 people take from Germany to England, for reasons they don't fully understand at first, but trust will be revealed (and are). Kenn and Soli are likable and easy to relate to, the descriptions of the scenery are balanced to enhance rather than hinder the flow of the story, and the interactions between Kenn and Soli and the people they meet on their trip are written in an easy style.

Although Kenn is a real-life shaman, which sounded a little too woo-woo for me at first, he makes his own skepticism of shamanism clear, which allowed me to maintain my own skepticism yet also relax and sink into both the story and the suggested practices. I particularly liked his definition of 'shaman': "There are a lot of different definitions floating around at the moment, but basically they are all talking about a person who uses altered states of consciounsness to access information that couldn't be had by ordinary means." This is written early in the book, and is explained further in both the story and Deepenings.

I also like his humility, as evidenced by his statement "There are many things you can and have to learn from teachers. But you also have to realize eventually that only the process of life can teach you the deepest lessons. That only your inner teachers can reach deep enough into you to see the things you can't - and awaken them to where you can see them.

Format: Paperback
_Dance of Stones_ is more than a road trip -- it is a journey through time, space, and the self, carried on the waves of an engaging narrative that will keep the reader turning the pages. It is the journey and transformation of the main characters, but on a deeper level, it is the journey and transformation of the reader as well. The exercises at the ends of the chapters provide a tutorial for those wanting to personally explore the concepts contained within the story, inviting the reader to embark upon their own journey, rather than just reading about the adventures of others. This book also provides an interesting and readable account of shamanism and its adaptations in modern times, as well as giving the reader the stepping stones to move forth on that path if it calls to him or her. A very readable, informative, and potentially transformative read -- I highly recommend this to anyone with an interest in modern shamanism.

Format: Paperback
This book is an excellent introduction to modern shamanism. It alternates between an interesting road narrative and chapters called "Deepenings" where ideas brought up in the narrative are explored further and exercises presented. In the road story the narrator expresses frustration that so many teachers seem to be unable to present their ideas without a raft of extra baggage and worldview. Mr. Day avoids this problem admirably and the ideas presented in the story and in the exercises are so refreshingly clear that otherwise complicated and difficult ideas suddenly seem simple and attainable. In fact, he's so clear in his writing that you may not realize just how much is being offered in this wonderful book. Recommended.

This book is a beautiful introduction to the mysteries of the spirit world and other realms. Keeping you firmly on the ground, and thoroughly entertained, by the growing (and witty) friendship between two virtual strangers on a roadtrip, Soli and Kenn, it introduces you to the connection to the One Source, the mysteries of the earth, and the gentle (and sometimes not so gentle) tugs of spiritual awakening. You will have to read it for yourself. It is an original work, and it offers as spiritual energy as powerful as its words.

Format: Paperback
The brilliance of this book is in its readability--Kenn Day provides a wonderful introduction to shamanism in a very down-to-earth format. He uses the structure of a travel narrative in very clever ways--while the major story follows two characters as they travel in Europe, it also contains the stories of the deeper journeys these two characters experience along the way. I appreciated both the candour and vividness with which it was written.

"Dance of Stones" is a well written introduction into the world of shamanism. Not obtuse in the least this journey wraps you up in it entirety. You begin to feel as if it is you taking the journey and the book takes on a tinge of the experiential as you read it.

If you are at all interested in exploring the worlds of shamanism do not think twice about making this book your first stop.
