What they’re saying about Post-Tribal Shamanism...

Post-Tribal Shamanism: A new look at the old ways is based on the author, Kenn Day’s experiences and the teachings he passes on from Grandfather, his spirit ally, friend and mentor, as well as from his 30 years of practice passing on these teachings in person through workshops.

First going into the background of shamanism and the role of a shaman the author explains that ‘It is difficult to find words to describe clearly the unseen worlds of the shaman and the work the shaman does’.  However Kenn Day seems to have managed this task admirably and this book contains a vast wealth of information including a wide range of useful practical exercises.   The book continues with further definitions and topics including social evolution and post-tribal ethics, also exploring the differences and similarities between the work of the traditional shaman that the author has met and his path as a contemporary post-tribal shaman.  

The practical information and exercises include such essentials as: connection with our ancestors; journeying techniques; working with a wide range of spirits; soul retrieval and healing the invisible wound.  However it also further including exercises in lucid dreaming and ceremony and ritual, going right through to preparing for death.  Another added value to this book is that Kenn Day uses and includes alternative methods to altering your consciousness other than the usual drumming.  While drumming is an excellent method, as he states, it is written about extensively in many other places and isn’t necessarily the best choice for every person or every situation.

In Post-Tribal Shamanism: A new look at the old ways Kenn Day explains that no book or workshop can make you into a shaman but the tools of the post-tribal shaman can benefit and enrich anyone’s life.  In this book he has provided a multitude of excellent tools for the reader to explore plus a wide range of information about shamanism and the work of a post-tribal practitioner.  Highly recommended reading for anyone interested in shamanism.

Dance of Stones: A Shamanic Road Trip

What they're saying about Dance of Stones...

A shamanic journey that is both personal and universal, sharing its heart in a modern way with the myths of old, revealing sacred mysteries in the form of a story and with added deepening clarifications. It is an ideal introduction to a modern form of shamanism that is useful for life in modern society. But this is more than an introduction and revelation, it is also an initiation for thosewho wish to take the plunge into a mystical voyage into a reality with no beginning or ending. An ancient tale in a modern form that is well worth the telling.

....Donald Michael Kraig, Author of Modern Magick

Dance of Stones: A Shamanic Road Trip is a story of three journeys: the tale of a physical road trip; the shamanic journey of emerging screenwriter-shaman Soli; and the journey this book will take you on as you travel through its pages, absorbing information effortlessly as you go. The ancient tradition of teaching through story telling works very well when the tale itself is told as engagingly as this – but don’t be fooled by the ease of reading, like shamanism itself, this book contains many layers and at some point you realise you are on a journey of your own alongside the author and Soli. 
Post tribal shaman, Kenn Day relates his tale with a likeable humility and there is something in it for everyone. Personally I loved Kenn’s honest portrayal of his occasional struggle to find the words to explain aspects of shamanism, interspersed with the moments when the words come from within/elsewhere and just fall right. This will sound so familiar to many other practitioners and help explain why sometimes we sound like bumbling idiots and at other times immensely wise. 
Dance of Stones: A Shamanic Road Trip has something for everyone whether you are interested in knowing more about what contemporary shamanism is, have newly heard the call to shamanism yourself, have been practising shamanism a while, or just enjoy a good story. Highly recommended – I have a feeling I’m going to re-read this book more than once.
