Shaman - Horse

Shamanic Books and Personal Exploration

I've written my own articles on the topic of shamanism. From this I've glimpsed the scope of shamanism. Shamanism is a split paradigm of being both universal and culturally specific. There is a rule and exception for everything. The culturally specific books read like anthropological studies, and many of the first books on shamanism were such. Some books are nearly universal books in concept. The Four Agreements is perhaps as an example as it does focus on self exploration and realization of personal power/responsibility.
