Respected kamasqa curandero Oscar Miro-Quesada teaches shamanism as a tradition of healing, power, and wisdom that sees all life as interconnected and sacred in SHAMANISM: Personal Quests of Communion with Nature and Creation, the seventh book in our exciting Common Sentience book series.
It would help if you lived the path to understand it. Explore the shamanic art of a noble death, becoming a hollow bone, traveling through the three worlds, and how to embrace the imaginal beauty of a living, sentient, and ever-evolving cosmos. SHAMANISM is the medicine our world needs for seven generations and beyond.
