Overview

James Endredy, who has studied with tribal shamans all over the world, offers a rigorous and authentic new philosophy of shamanic practice called ecoshamanism. Rejecting the consumer/industrial worldview and the spiritual deadness that accompanies it, ecoshamanism leads to a fundamental shift in consciousness-first, by becoming aware of the sacred natural world and our role within it, and next, by forging a spiritual alliance with the sentient forces that sustain our planet. Using the powerful ceremonies, sacred rituals, and everyday practices in this guidebook, you can transform your life as you save the world.

“In this excellent book, James Endredy makes the case for understanding sustainable living practices and ecological awareness by incorporating the age old Shamanic tradition. Ecoshamanism is at once a powerful contribution to the shamanic literature and a call to action.”
-José L. Stevens, Ph.D, author of Praying with Power: How to Use Ancient Shamanic Techniques to Gain Maximum Spiritual Benefit and Extraordinary Results Through Prayer

“James Endredy has a deep respect for the sacred traditions of indigenous cultures. His work of bringing people closer to Mother Earth is an important contribution to restoring balance between the human community and the larger web of life.”
-Casimiro dela Cruz Lopez, Huichol emissary and illustrator of The Journey of Tunuri and the Blue Deer: A Huichol Indian Story

“When will modern culture remember that the land on which we stand is holy? Thank you, James Endredy, for the humbling reminder that while many of us on the spiritual path spend thousands of dollars flying off to exotic locations to get a glimpse of 'Truth,' Divinity itself is right outside our door, waiting to reconnect with us. Read this book and begin the remembering …”
-Hillary S. Webb, author of Traveling Between the Worlds and Exploring Shamanism

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The sources drawn upon by Endredy (Earthworks for Body & Spirit), a student and teacher of shamanic practices, are the natural world, direct experience, and studies with shamanistic teachers and cultures in the Americas. Endredy sees himself as a bridge between the ancient cultures and the modern world and asserts the importance of being connected to the natural world through a relationship of reciprocity. The most interesting parts of this book are infused with his personal experiences in trying to be spirit-led rather than ego-driven. His goal is nothing less than transformation via changes in lifestyle and world views. Endredy describes more than 50 ecoshamanistic practices, including ceremonies, rituals, and chants, designed to provide connection to the spirit world and heal the earth. Harmony and balance, he believes, are created through fostering states of awareness and new ways of seeing by working with the elements, animal spirits, sacred trance, and dance. A hopeful and encouraging book but for a limited audience. Recommended where there is interest.-Nancy Almand, San Diego Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

Meet the Author

James Endredy is a teacher, mentor, and guide to thousands of people through his books and workshops. After a series of life tragedies and mystical experiences as a teenager he changed direction from his
Catholic upbringing and embarked on a life-long spiritual journey to encounter the mysteries of life and death and why we are all here. For over twenty-five years he has learned shamanic practices from all over the globe, while also studying with kawiteros, lamas, siddhas, roadmen,
and leaders in the modern fields of ecopsychology, bioregionalism, and sustainable living. James also worked for ten years with Mexican shamanic researcher Victor Sanchez learning to share shamanic practices with modern people.

On a daily level, his experiences have inspired him to live a sustainable lifestyle as much as possible while still working within mainstream society. He writes, leads workshops, mentors private clients, visits schools and community centers, speaks at bookstores,
and volunteers in his community. His books have thus far been published in four languages and include Ecoshamanism, Shamanism for Beginners, and Beyond 2012.
