`Shamanic Encounters' is essentially a collection of personal accounts of healing trance experienced by individuals when working with the shamanic healer, teacher and martial artist Dan Russell in a highly absorbed state. Here the accounts of individuals who have managed to articulate their experience are openly shared and interwoven with a simple but insightful commentary by the author. The narration builds up a rich and colourful map of the under explored and largely uncharted territory of inner worlds, offering to those with interest a reminder and glimpse into the ancient intelligence and power of the deep mind. This is shamanism in its raw form as applied to and deeply relevant to modern society. From the Author: "This book does not purport to say anything new. The ides that emerge from these reminiscences are ancient, at the cross-cultural core of the human experience. We are printing these words as a signpost. Left as a clue on the path for those who are interested in this approach. A marker to let you know that this is being practised now. That such and such help is available. A resource to share and build upon....to regain that awareness more common in primitive society. In these cultures where the internal views are less cluttered by the promises of technology and 'civilised' society. The shamans aim is to regain awareness of our unseen world - of that separate reality built up over aeons by our ancestors and now lost in the plethora of the twentieth century. This other reality continues, acknowledged or not, in and throughout all our experience. By the processes of trance we begin again to develop a sensitivity to this other empowered dimension in our lives."
