The Shaman's Message (#Q414)
THE SPIRIT OF SHAMANISM
Roger Walsh

Shamans who have healed themselves then function at a higher than normal level. Roger Walsh, M.D., is professor of psychiatry, philosophy and anthropology at the University of California at Irvine. He discusses shamanism in the light of modern science and scholarship, questioning claims that shamans suffer from schizophrenia or epilepsy.
HEALING AND SHAMANISM
Alberto Villoldo

The shaman is more interested in treating the spiritual causes of an illness than the symptoms. Alberto Villoldo, Ph.D., director of The Four Winds Foundation, is co-author of Realms of Healing and Healing States. Here he describes the path of shamanism as one of facing one's fears, particularly the fear of death.
A DEEPER KINSHIP WITH NATURE
James A. Swan

Our connection with nature is expressed in our dreams, in psychic and paranormal experiences, and in our ancestral heritage. James A. Swan, Ph.D. is author of The Power of Place, Sacred Places, and Nature As Teacher and Healer. Here he suggests that we will not be fully able to address the environmental crisis until we learn to develop a deeper kinship with nature, such as is held by indigenous cultures.
TWENTIETH CENTURY SHAMANISM
Ruth-Inge Heinze

Shamanistic practices may be of value for individuals seeking personal growth and self-realization. The late Ruth-Inge Heinze, Ph.D., was author of Trance and Healing in Southeast Asia Today and Shamans of the Twentieth Century. Here she describes shamans as experts in the use of altered states of consciousness and sacred rituals for the service of their communities.

"The task here, when we look at these traditions, is not to look at them through the lenses of our culture, but to step into a reality where anything is possible and everything is possible."
