Shamanism Book & CD List

Because there are so many junky books out there on "shamanism" (with a capital "S" for silly), people are always asking me for book and CD recommendations.

Besides the extended resource list pages on my animism and shamanism web site,, I have a brand new list of recommended books and CDs at another site.

I just started writing a regional column on shamanism as the new Houston Shamanism Examiner. So I have added a list of books and CDs, with links to review pages, on the right-hand side of every page on my Examiner column. But you need to scroll down to find it below the ads.

I hope you find it useful. These are some of my all-time favorite books and CDs on shamanism, the ones we use in our Shamanism Meetup Group.

This new list includes some books and CDs that did not exist when I built the Shamanista web site. Let me know what you think.

One famous book is, so far, conspicuous by its absence. Let's see if anyone actually misses it.

If you have any suggestions, please comment here, and I'll take a look. I'm always interested in new shamanism information and resources.

Why Shamanism Is Hard to Learn in Houston

I am the new Shamanism Examiner for Houston at I'll be writing a new column on doing shamanic work in the Houston area.

Here is the first post, on why it is hard to learn to do shamanic work in Houston in particular and large cities in general:

I hope you will stop by and take a look. I would love to read your comments.

If you have a question or want to get a discussion going, please leave a comment about it. I might write a column about it.

Thanks for taking a look. I will be back here to post again soon, I hope.
