Dear Reader,

A way to expand your inner world, that makes your outer world more "spacious," is to journey shamanically. There are so many books, online and in-person courses, and shamanic practitioners in this area and beyond who can show you how to get started and then mentor you from there if you need. I recommend getting to know this spiritual practice as it is a sure-fire way to get to know yourself in all its multi-dimensionality. It's not a religion but more of a method to explore the inner worlds and to get in touch intimately with your essential self/selves. Below are some shamanic practitioners, healers, and teachers that I recommend.

The Art of Shapeshifting:
Visionary Art and Healing
By PaulaBarkmeier

Within every one of us there is a wild and natural creature, a powerful force of instinctual and creative being. My work speaks of a longing for wildness. Opposing forces of dark and light find their place.
The creatures inhabiting my installations of art are hybrids of real entities in nature and imaginary forms. Different perceptions of reality are questioned. Where do animal and human meet? Human and animal parts morph to form new species. Boundaries between the conscious and unconscious realms are blurred. One is invited to question the relationships between these creatures, and how they interact with us in our dreams, psyche, and everyday existence.

Shamanism in a Modern World
By Alberto Villoldo, Ph.D.
Four Winds Society

We live in an age that suffers from loss of Soul.  We learn in school that the world is inanimate, that the universe is dead, that the Earth is an island of life in a lifeless Universe.  We learn that the stars are not the eyes of god, but nuclear furnaces that will become white dwarfs and eventually explode, spewing their lifeless innards into the void of space.

We have learned to explain too many things.  To an Indian child high in the Andes, or on a Hopi reservation in the Southwest, life is a mystery, the sky is inexplicably wondrous, rocks are beings that talk to you and counsel you.  They know that rivers don't lie, that when the mountain speaks it whispers with a voice that was heard on the first day of creation.
