Shamanic Breathwork will give you insight into the world of the shaman and help you connect with your own healing wisdom.” (Lee Lipsenthal, M.D., ABIHM, founder of Finding Balance in a Medical Life)

Roberts, M.D., coauthor of Blackwell Complementary and Alternative Medicine)

"During each step of the process, the author includes her own experiences as well as accounts from a wide variety of workshop participants. Their accounts indicate the benefits of the program for the general reader or participant as well as for those who have been in dependency relationships, or who are involved in recovery programs." (Richard D. Wright, New Age Retailer, Feb 2010)

I highly recommend this practical guide for turning the ideal into the real deal.” (Steve Bhaerman, author of Driving Your Own Karma and coauthor of Spontaneous Evolution: Our Positive)

“The Shamanic Breathwork practice is the perfect way to journey beyond the limits of the self. I am very happy to see a book about breathwork from the shamanic perspective.” (Leonard D. Orr, author of Breaking the Death Habit: The Science of Everlasting Life and founder of R)

From the Back Cover

SHAMANISM / SELF-TRANSFORMATION

“There is tremendous power in Linda Star Wolf’s words like there is power in the breathwork she practices and teaches. The stories, insights, and information found here touch the heart, soul, body, and brain. Shamanic Breathwork is a must read for anyone ready for a major shift in consciousness.”
--John Lee, author of The Flying Boy and The Anger Solution

“In the Shamanic Breathwork journey, Star Wolf weaves her own healing experience into a powerful, compassionate process of deep inner work for others.”
--Jacquelyn Small, author of Awakening in Time and The Sacred Purpose of Being Human

Incorporating psychospiritual tools with her Shamanic Breathwork practice, Linda Star Wolf shows how to spiritually journey in the same way shamans entrain to the rhythms of drums, rattles, or music by using the breath. Much like traveling to sacred places or ingesting entheogens, this practice can be used to enter altered states of consciousness, connect to cosmic consciousness, increase paranormal abilities, and awaken the shaman within. Breathwork can also be used to resolve traumas and shapeshift unproductive modes of thinking in order to move beyond them.

Utilizing the healing power of breath along with chakra-attuned music, Linda Star Wolf explores the five cycles of change--the alchemical map of Shamanic consciousness--and how these cycles affect you as you move through major shifts in your life. Filled with personal stories and case histories, the book also includes a 70-minute CD of shamanic trance rhythms and a guided meditation to awaken the chakras during practice.

LINDA STAR WOLF,  founder  of  Venus  Rising  Institute  for Shamanic Healing Arts and  the Shamanic Breathwork process, has led transformational workshops worldwide since 1984. The coauthor with Nicki Scully of Shamanic Mysteries of Egypt and The Anubis Oracle, she lives and works at her Isis Cove Retreat Center in North Carolina.

Linda Star Wolf is the author of several books, the creator of Shamanic Breathwork™ and the Founder of Venus Rising Association for Transformation, a 501c3 non-profit organization. She is the Founder and President of Venus Rising University for Shamanic Psychospiritual Studies, established August 6th 2010, in the state of North Carolina. Star Wolf and her husband, Brad Collins, co-founded the Isis Cove Community and Retreat center in western North Carolina where they reside. Star Wolf also created the Wise Wolf Councils, an annual gathering of women and men from around the world to share wisdom teachings and vision for the future of our planet, and the Shamanic Ministers Global Network, a world-wide network of Shamanic Ministers and Shamanic Congregations dedicated to "Embodying Shamanic Consciousness in Every Day Living."

Starting out as a therapist in the mental health and addictions fields in the 1980's, Star Wolf is a nationally certified alcohol and drug counselor. She holds a BA in Human Services from St. Leo College and a Doctorate of Ministry and Ph.

Star Wolf was originally introduced to Holotropic breathwork by its founder, Stan Grof, and trained extensively with Jacquelyn Small, founder of Integrative Breathwork, becoming one of the lead trainers at Small's Eupsychia Institute. Star Wolf also studied shamanic earth wisdom teachings with Grandmother Twylah Nitsch, a Seneca Wolf Clan elder and founder of the Seneca Indian Historical Society, a school without walls that promotes Native teachings. Grandmother Twylah adopted Star Wolf as a Spiritual Granddaughter and gave her the spirit name of Star Wolf.

Star Wolf created the Shamanic Breathwork™ Process as a synthesis of her personal exploration and direct healing experiences with breathwork, shamanic wisdom, depth psychology and addictions recovery methods. The Shamanic Breathwork™ Process is a practice using the transformative healing power of the breath, sound healing through chakra-attuned music, energetic bodywork, soul return and extraction, shamanic art processes, scribing and dynamic group processing techniques to enter an altered state of consciousness, connect with one's soul and spirit guides, heal trauma experienced earlier in life and receive visions in order to gain clarity about one's sacred purpose and next right actions in the world.

When one purchases a book entitled "Shamanic Breathwork," especially when it comes with a CD, it might be concluded that you will be taught the basics of breathwork. Not so with this book. You discover how this process came about, how it helped many people, the visions experienced by people doing it, and the use of artwork and journaling afterward. The only instruction you get for breathing is "breathe with the music." An incredible disappointment... The only reason this book deserves a star at all, is that the music by SoulFood on the included CD is very good.

This is a primer on shamanic breathwork, written by the woman who created it. A thorough and comprehensive explanation how breathwork works as a modality for therapeutic healing; The book explains very clearly what breathwork is, what it does, why it is a successful approach to working with and helping people work through all the various emotional issues that we deal with brought on by external and internal forces: depression, ptsd, physical and emotional abuse, addiction, etc. It talks about why shamanic breathwork is successful where other forms of therapy have failed. This book explains how Ms. Wolf developed this process and gives precise accounts from people who have been able to turn their lives around for the better to become productive healthy and joyful adults in the world community. It teaches how all humans have the capacity to reach their full potential and in doing so, affect change in their world. I highly recommend this book.

This work focuses on old and new techniques for expanding consciousness safely and consistently. Linda Star Wolf is the master of Shamanic Breathwork and has produced a book that explains the process as well as how she is bringing this discipline to the world through her work with her husband, Brad Collins. I liked it especially as it explains a difficult concept (and one that may be dismissed by some as too "far out") in simple terms and logical sequence. It opens a new method for self discovery that is absolutely astounding in its simplicity and power. Great book.

The first half of the CD is a nice compilation of various "trancy" tracks.The second half is instructional talking....not good. The book itself is mostly "lightweight"... personal experiences described, generalities, non-specific wanderings about the subject. But "Journying Beyond the Limits of the Self" way overstates the possibilities of breathwork...at least, for the vast majority of people. Breathwork might work for a very tiny minority, but a book like this misleads people towards a way which is very unlikely to be a productive consciousness expansion technique. My advice....combine breathwork with other techniques, simultaineously, or sequentially (first chant, then meditate while doing breathwork, then do yoga...which have been very effective for me in my own experience. And doing all of the above with a small group of like-minded friends and aquaintences is a really necessary part of this. ( And also, the sweatbath is a good addition, when combined with these other activities)

I really appreciate Star Wolf's work -- for example, the wonderful Anubis Oracle which she did with Nikki Scully. This book is deeply felt and written with great love. It provides much-needed support and information for people struggling with spiritual and substance abuse/addiction issues. More general books on shamanic practice don't have the space or focus that this complex combination needs. Star Wolf describes her own journey, the techniques used at her healing center, focused ways to practice, and recorded meditations/journeys. She also includes many other people's stories and examples of their healing art work. It's a wonderful resource!

I feel the title does not serve the book well, as this book is focused on a specific area of need and practice, rather than shamanic breathwork generally. Properly titled, this is very definitely a 5-star book. I'm also feeling that the publisher could have provided much better reproduction of photographs; in their current form it is hard to see in them what Start Wolf is discussing. I know top-notch photographic reproduction is expensive -- I would rather have had far fewer photographs with clearer, richer details.

This book has so much to offer that I'm hoping for a second edition that really does it justice!

I'd highly recommend this book to anyone who is serious about getting down to doing the work around the things that stand in the way of our personal and global transformation. Shamanic Breathwork is a powerful way to see what is unseen in our psyche, and gives us an opportunity to heal the parts of us we don't even realize need healing...until our soul points it out in through breathing. Shamanic Breathwork, in my opinion, is one of the most powerful pieces of shadow work out there. The entire process, from breathing to art, to group sharing and integration, creates a completly integral experience. Linda Star Wolf has written the definitive book on SBW, and why not? She created it.
