AWAKENING TO THE SPIRIT WORLD is more of an experience than it is reading a book. Not that the writing by Sandra Ingerman and Hank Wesselman is less than excellent: these two spiritualists communicate the road to the Shamanic path with great ease and easy to understand verbiage. It is that the manner in which the information shared so warmly and realistically in this book is of another place, a place the authors are inviting us to explore, to become. Having spent hours with this book and the accompanying CD of drumming, this reader has experienced some transformations that seem to fall out of the field of 'reviewing' a book. And that is hopefully what many people will find if they take the time to enter this sacred space - this oneness with Nature. As is quoted from the book defining what is necessary to achieve the level of oneness, the following summarizes only one of the issues: 'Three necessary tools are gratitude, or the ability to see through the false ego to the heart; seeing, or cutting through falsity to the true nature of Spirit; and blessing, or recognizing the Spirit flowing through one. Shamans are viewed as hollow bones or empty reeds, people who learn "to move ... ego out of the way so that the power of the universe may work through and within them." Words and critiques of a book of this sort fall short in describing the atmosphere the reader (rather the willing reader!) discovers. Try not to enter this world on the recommendations of others, but commit to the elevation of exploring Shamanism from your own need if not curiosity. It is not new, it has been present since life began, it is a meditation that takes us beyond ourselves and into ourselves all at one time. AWAKENING TO THE SPIRIT WORLD is a gift from Ingerman and Wesselman. Accept their offer. Grady Harp

A very nice book which goes over a lot of different things. I was slightly of put by the authors not really going into any warnings and mentions of the potential dangers of journeying however as well as stating that all spirits were especially helping spirits. In general though I enjoyed the book and have a lot of interesting information and thoughts.

I kept feeling like the writer was looking for acceptance by the reader. I want a teacher who is sure about who they are, and what they know, not my approval (after all we are all free to feel and do things that we feel is correct for our own pathways... nothing is EVER written in stone).
