In two parts, this concise and convivial exploration explains what shamanism entails, describes who shaman are and what they do, and chronicles the various contributions of shamanism to psychology, spirituality, and medicine. It goes on to provide an introduction to the shamanistic vision through firsthand accounts of the author’s own travels throughout various regions of Latin America. It also investigates the possible connections between shamanism and depth psychology-the psychoanalytic approach to therapy and research that takes the unconscious into account-with which it shares various assumptions and techniques. What emerges is a thoroughly profound picture of a way of thought that proposes a genuine integration among human beings, nature, and the cosmos and that offers answers to crises, pain, sickness, and death.


En dos partes, esta exploración concisa y amena explica qué es el chamanismo, quienes son y qué hacen los chamanes, y describe las diversas aportaciones del chamanismo, tanto para la psicología y la espiritualidad como para la medicina. Luego provee una introducción a la visión chamánica a través de relatos de primera mano de los viajes del autor mismo en diferentes regiones de América Latina. También indaga en los posibles puentes entre el chamanismo y la psicología profunda-el enfoque psicoanalítico a la terapia y la investigación que toma en cuenta el inconsciente-con la que comparte varios supuestos y técnicas. Lo que resulta es una profunda imagen de un modo de pensamiento que propugna una genuina integración entre el ser humano, la naturaleza y el cosmos y que ofrece respuestas a las situaciones de crisis, dolor, enfermedad y muerte.
