It is not about how to become a shaman, as that is a lifetime’s work and very specific and does not fit the western world (apart from a very few people), rather it is about how to use some of the ‘tools’ and ‘ways’ of the shaman to enable a deeper, richer, more spiritual way of life; how to understand oneself better, and more; how to encourage self healing and inner strength; how to find the support and guidance of power animals and spirit guides; how to ‘let go’ of those things we cling to, once we recognise the harm they can do us; how to bring in new ways of ‘seeing’ things and so on. It’s all there in this book. In some ways it’s a little like a recipe book: firstly, Christa notes what you are aiming to achieve; she then gives you examples (for clarity) and the method to achieve it and finally there is the outcome and any little ‘pitfalls’ that may arise along the way and how to deal with them.
This is no mean task. To have written on a subject that could fill volumes, condense it right down into simplistic, meaningful and understandable chapters, with easy instructions on how to go about the various techniques and practices, is an absolute art in itself. As far as I’m concerned, this book is a masterpiece! An absolute MUST to read, to own and to utilise on a daily basis.
Two other books on shamanism complement this one. Michael Harner’s, Cave and Cosmos: Shamanic Encounters with Another Reality, emphasises journeying and provides ample cases to enlighten the modern practitioner. Serge Kahili King, a shaman in the Hawaiian tradition, offers in his book, Instant Healing, the benefits of a long accumulation of shamanic knowledge about a wide variety of healing techniques for numerous ailments. I recommend highly all three books.

In this "new age" of spirituality, it is challenging to find a trustworthy guide amidst a plethora of confusing misinformation, pseudo-healers, and self-appointed gurus who are all anxious to lead you down their own "primrose paths" that often lead seekers off into the weeds.
Any wise seeker, particularly one who wants to explore the vast inner and outer realms of expanded consciousness, needs a guide they can trust. Christa Mackinnon stands out as one of them and "Shamanism: Awaken and Develop the Shamanic Force Within" is the perfect guidebook for those taking their first steps into the great mystery that waits for us all.
