A READER: This is a thought-provoking book which stands apart from all others
dealing with Celtic shamanism. Cowan offers detailed analyses on many different
aspects of the Celtic brand of mysticism; he clears up the "clowdiness"
that is often present when dealing with this complex system of symbology and myth.
A wealth of subjects are covered, from the traces of shamanistic practice we find
in the lives of Celtic heroes to the deeper significance of the Arthuran legends.
The most interesting part of the book for me was the section on the Sacred Wound,
a vital but mysterious part of shamanic initiation. This witty, energetic exploration
of the Celtic mystical experience is definitely a must have for all interested
in this genre.

firstname.lastname@example.org from Colorado, USA , 02/22/98, rating=9: The indispensible
guide on Celtic shamanism For those called to or interested in a Celtic path,
Harner's "The Way of the Shaman": is useful in a broad sense, but basically
useless in the specific, as it ignores almost totally the Indo-European traditions.
This books fills that information gap, and does much more as well. More scholarly
than some of the other books on the subject, but still very practical, it provides
a good mix of information and exploration. The only major problem is in the early
exercises; Matthews emphasizes their importance, but the instructions to do them
are very vague, making this book a little more difficult for the beginner to enter
into; nonetheless. it is still where to begin..

Mindell's is one of the most sober-minded and informed recent books on the
subject. He warns us, for instance, that shamanism is not an individualistic search
for peak experience but a form of psychic community service. His is an unsentimental,
unsensational view of shamanism that emphasizes its challenges rather than its
ego-gratifying power. Using the vocabulary of Carlos Castenada's Don Juan books,
Mindell discusses shamanism in many aspects of Western life--for instance, in
therapy, medicine, and partnering. His strong, mature voice merits wide hearing.
