don't be fooled
am 11. Mai 1999
I'm a bit upset by the number of people who have been fooled by this book. I can say this because I am Native American, and 'Shamanism' has always been in my family. This author has stolen our traditions, took them as his own, warped them, and is now attempting profit. I would have given this book a lower rating if it were possible. Please don't look to him as an authority on this subject. He doesn't even always focus on the important aspects of 'Shamanism' anyway, he kind of gets caught up in his own ideals of it.
For those of you who're sincerely interested in this subject, just look inside yourself. Realize there is no 'imagination', pay attention to what you feel, and knowledge will come. If you Really want a book on it, try a book written by Natives, such as "Medicine of the Cherokee" by Garrett.
Hey, you wouldn't go to a Russian to learn about South American beliefs, or an Australian to learn about Canadian beliefs, would you?
