"I don’t treat modern shamanism as a religion in this book. There is no tribe or group, no group rituals, no priest-like authority.
Nor do I view it purely as medicine, in the sense of it having a beneficial effect on the body and the mind.
My focus is on a spiritual yet at the same time very concrete, tangible connection and bridge between people and nature. This connection builds on active forces such as compassion, love, empathy, and attention.
The words “compassion” and “love” trigger almost automatically a religious/spiritual attitude in most people. This, however, must constantly be contrasted with the very concrete and real connection to nature, which forms the basis for shamanism."
Modern shaman is available as POD (print on demand) - and ebook (EPUB, from Spring 2023). If you have speciel wishes (a pdf ebook for instance) or questions, please send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
