From Library Journal
These books have similar concepts and attitudes but reflect different hierarchies, worldviews, and writing styles. King relates one of the many traditions of Hawaiian shamanism, distinguishing between mystics and shamans and between warrior shamans and adventurer shamans. Shamans use their skills for the benefit of the world, and King offers insights on such skills as divination, meditation, and healing. Accessibly written, this is full of intriguing concepts and possibilities. Markides, who introduced the teachings of a Greek Cypriot healer in The Magus of Strovolos (1985. o.p.) and Homage to the Sun (Methuen, 1985), here considers a number of healers attuned to higher levels of consciousness. They argue that human beings are multidimensional and that the higher we ascend to superconscious self-awareness, the greater the love and compassion we feel for others. Their teachings also incorporate the teachings of Christ. Recommended for large collections on spiritual subjects.

Kahili King writes in a conversational, easy-to-read, style that gets to the heart of his meaning without unnecessary words. It is personable to the point that I feel like I'm sitting with him as he speaks.
This isn't a book to rush through and put on the shelf. There is so much here, not just to understand, but to use in practical living. I'm going to have to read it a few more times, and I see it becoming a reference I reach for often.
I also recommend Huna, Ancient Hawaiian Secrets for Modern Living, also by Serge Kahili King.
The book is comprehensive and practical. Urban Shaman brought together so much of what I've discovered scattered in hundreds of books on psychic development, spirituality, healing and philosophy for a happier life.
This book is a treasure!
This is a book that gives tools that can actually be used anytime, anyplace. I am very glad I chose this book!
