Several years ago I was facing an illness that no amount of medication was remedying. It was during this episode I began looking for alternative ways of healing that led me to a Celtic Shaman - an Irish woman whose healing qualities had been inherited through her bloodline for generations. It was at this crossroads where I began my quest.

This is just a sampling of the books responsible for this journey.  My hope is they will open a door for you too, and help to de-mystify what we call Shamanic Healing.


One writer explores the mysterious connection between the physical and spirit worlds—and finds healing in the process.

With warmth and compassion, Sandra Ingerman describes the dramatic results of combining soul retrieval with contemporary psychological concepts in this visionary work that revives the ancient shamanic tradition of soul retrieval for healing emotional and physical illness.

Shamanic journeying is the inner art of traveling to the invisible worlds beyond ordinary reality to retrieve information for change in every area of our lives from spirituality and health to work and relationships. 

In this beautiful treasury of sacred wisdom, Mara Freeman shares the rich legacy of the Celts -- the festivals, gods and goddesses, saints, faeries, music, poetry, and storytelling that anchor this magical tradition.

By Oak, Ash, & Thorn: Modern Celtic Shamanism

Take one part of the world''s oldest spiritual system (shamanism), mix in one part of one of the world''s most popular spiritual cultures (the Celts), and bring it up to date by blending in modern forms of shamanism. 

Tom Cowan has pursued this theme in a lyrical cross-cultural exploration of shamanism and the Celtic imagination that examines the myths and tales of the ancient Celtic poets and storytellers, and outlines techniques used to access the shaman's world.
