Overview

Presented in what the author calls a "cookbook shamanism" style, this book shares recipes, ingredients, and methods of preparation for experiencing some very ancient wisdoms: wisdoms of Native American and Wiccan traditions, as well as contributions from other philosophies of Nature as they are used in the shamanic way. Wheels, the circle, totems, shields, directions, divinations, spells, care of sacred tools and meditations are all discussed. Wolfe encourages us to feel confident and free to use her methods to cook up something new, completely on our own. This blending of ancient formulas and personal methods represents what Ms. Wolfe calls Aquarian Shamanism.

In the Shadow of the Shaman is designed to communicate in the most practical, direct ways possible, so that the wisdom and the energy may be shared for the benefits of all. Whatever your system or tradition, you will find this to be a valuable book, a resource, a friend, a gentle guide and support on your journey. Dancing in the shadow of the shaman, you will find new dimensions of Spirit.

Meet the Author

Amber Wolfe is a master-level educator and psychotherapist in private practice. She follows an American Shamanic path, using the wisdoms found in the Celtic forms of Craft, Church, and myth that are her heritage. She also honors the sacred teachings of Native American medicine elders who have shared their knowledge of the nature of this land.

Amber Wolfe calls herself a Ban Drui, a term that has several meanings. Among them are Wise Woman, Druidess, White Oak Woman, and (as described by William Butler Yeats) a "Faerie Doctor." These titles represent her style as a writer, teacher, and therapist, whose work emphasizes the magick qualities of self-transformation and personal evolution.
