I was held fast by the energy and action of the plot, moved by the characters and their stories of growth and breakthrough, and brought to tears by the ending. There is so much to learn in this book. William knows what it means to choose growth and a life led by the principles of truth, love and service. He has guided thousands of people on this journey and lives it authentically himself. William's deep understanding of the pitfalls and challenges involved in choosing to be a creator, as well as the magical breakthroughs and breath-taking potential of living from our true selves is served to us here in a compelling, vivid, inspiring and above all practically valuable read.
The Last Shaman truly works to the shamanic principles of its title. "Shamanism...is about a journey to another realm, where the forces at play in the dimension can be harmonized to create a corresponding harmony in our world" (The Last Shaman). My experience of reading the book was that of diving into a metaphorical illustration of my own life, and of the ways I could work through and transform some of the areas in which I was feeling stuck. Everyone I have spoken to so far who has read it has had a similar experience. Within the story I received insight after insight into what I was playing out, and was reminded of the simple tools available to me to challenge and shift that experience to align with what the truth of what my heart would love.
With Love and an Open Heart,
I understand that there is another book before this one---one I haven't read---but I think you will be ok reading THE LAST SHAMAN by itself. The character Dumani tells Vale something he had learned himself: "How easy it is to be seduced by reason when you don't have the key to the whole truth." This means that with the truth we can help in creating the world that we want. Our future doesn't have to be set. We can decide to be active participants in the change we want.
This lesson shows itself later in the book where Vale is reminded of the importance of transcending our circumstances. This came to him at a time of loss, but it is a discovery that can do much to shape who we are and how we can deal with the world around us.
Whitecloud is a storyteller that can give us valuable information in the guise of fiction. That is what makes the book so powerful, and the message so timely and profound.
Regardless of what you might believe THE LAST SHAMAN will draw you in through its story but give you the tools need to transform the way you see yourself. Who could ask for more than that?
I was riveted and thoroughly entertained by the story as it deftly manages to bridge esoteric themes with the subjective human experience. The result is a practically applicable roadmap to authenticity that acknowledges both human frailty and greatness. It manages to avoid preaching a doctrine of mastery but rather offers an invitation to explore and materialise what is highest in ourselves. The Last Shaman is truly a significant contribution to the evolution of human consciousness.

The book was very slow. I also thought there was too much dialogue/gibberish between Vale and Dumani. Not a fan of massively long chapters either.Published 22 months ago by William Corazo
