Discover the Secrets of Shamanic Prayer
Prayer is an intensely personal communication that covers the range of human experience: from gratitude, worship, and celebration, to grief, affliction, and suffering.
This incredibly potent spiritual practice is one of humankind’s most ancient and enduring activities and is as prevalent today as it was thousands of years ago.
In How to Pray the Shaman’s Way author José Luis Stevens offers an insightful guide to this universal, transformative practice, and explains how engaging in shamanic prayer can lead to deeper healing, a more grounded outlook on life, and an ever-expanding sense of connection with the natural world, our fellow human beings, and the divine universe.
This book is not only an in-depth exploration of shamanic prayer, but also a practical guide for initiating or deepening your own prayer practice.
Packed with a wealth of inspired prayers that can be adapted for your own use, this book is a dive deep into the world of personal transformation, healing, and spiritual guidance.
