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.
