Banyen's Description: 

Within every person—as well as every animal, rock, machine, particle, or planet—is a spirit that seeks to connect and communicate with the rest of the universe. Dr. Claude Poncelet calls this “the shaman within.” In his visionary new book, this scientist and shamanic teacher offers a compendium of practices and wisdom for connecting to the power of the spiritual forces in our lives. Filled with accessible instruction, insights from a lifetime of deep inquiry, and guidance for transformative journeys into non-ordinary reality, The Shaman Within explores:

  • Modern shamanism—an ever-changing practice that welcomes both scientific discoveries and our personal experience
  • Shapeshifting—a powerful method for building empathy, gathering insight, and experiencing our fundamental relation to every part of reality
  • Combining indigenous wisdom and contemporary physics to revolutionize your understanding of time, space, and your authentic self
  • Spiritual adventures to unexpected places—from the edge of the cosmos to the subatomic realm
  • Using shamanism to enhance your work and family life, reveal novel solutions to life challenges, heal the environment, and more.

As both scientist and shamanic practitioner, I see no inconsistency between science and spiritual knowledge. In fact, when shamanism and science inform each other, we gain a far greater access to the wonder and possibility of reality.

In The Shaman Within, this extraordinary teacher invites you to discover the 21st-century evolution of shamanic practice—one that will delight you, empower you, and open your eyes to new dimensions of our strange and marvelous universe.

Free will, I have learned, is the freedom to align the functioning of that marvelous and complex machine called the human body and its brain with pure consciousness, the spirit that has incarnated this body and brain…

I have felt the call to help evolve a shamanic practice that serves our world today as we all really live it, with all its trappings and shortcomings, with its miraculous inventions and discoveries, and with its myriad blessings. This modern version of shamanism, while it looks different from the shamanic traditions of the past and those found today among indigenous people, is firmly rooted in basic shamanic principles. I wrote this book to serve as a bridge between our modern world and those time-honored principles.
