Shamanism is the oldest living path of spirituality and healing, dating back tens of thousands of years, yet many people don’t know what it is or are confused about the practice. In The Hollow Bone, shaman, teacher, and author Colleen Deatsman unveils the mysterious world of Shamanism as it is still practiced today all around the world.
Deatsman explains that shamanism is not a religion with a doctrine, dogma, or holy book. Rather, it is a spirituality rooted in the idea that all matter has consciousness and that accessing the spirit in all things is part of what keeps the world in balance and individuals healed and whole.
The Hollow Bone examines shamanism’s history, its core beliefs, and how it is practiced all around the world. It includes a glossary of terms, resources for finding and working with shamanic teachers, and over two dozen rare photographs and illustrations showing the magnificent range of shamanic tools, rituals, practitioners, and traditions.
Colleen Deatsman is a licensed professional counselor, licensed social worker, Usui Reiki master, certified clinical hypnotherapist, certified alternative healing consultant, and shamanic practitioner. She has been exploring health and wellness, self-healing, personal growth, and spiritual development for over twenty-five years.
