Book Overview

The word shaman means one who sees in the dark. Shamans consciously choose to live in two different worlds at the same time. They have one foot here in the everyday world and one foot in the world of the spirits. The fact is, we all live in these two different worlds, but are commonly not aware of the other, less visible one. This world does not exist in some other place, but is right beside us, just outside of our usual perceptions. Seeing in...

Deeper Than Expected

As a shamanic practioner, with over two years of intensive training, I bought Colleen and Paul's book with the expectation that it would be a good review of knowledge already acquired. I was more than pleasantly surprised, however, as Seeing In The Dark proved to be of considerable depth, and not at all a beginner's manual, though it would also be excellent for beginners. The first thing that impressed me was the profound sense of purpose and mission presented in the book. The authors are clearly dedicated to bringing blessing and improvement, and a higher consciousness, to the world. I also found the contents to be incredibly rich in understanding, knowledge and skill. The material will provide a seeker with many weeks, and probably many months, of intensive experiences in the form of the suggested journeys and other assignments. I also discovered it to be truly challenging to me as a person, encouraging me to strive for the utmost in integrity and deep spiritual practice. After I finished a read-through, I placed it at my bedside, to be consulted regularly for wisdom, and so that I can work through the many exercises. I highly recommend it to all who are interested in deepening their spiritual experience.

A New Look At Shamanism for the Real New Age

"Seeing in the Dark" takes on and succeeds at the herculean task of reintroducing shamanism with language we are familiar with in the 21st Century. This book is a bridge between the flights of fancy of what was, and the concrete pragmatism of what will be, indeed must be, in the years to come as we pull away from the wish-fulfillment thinking which has plagued the New Age. What worked for the ancients will not work for us in the same way. Post-modern man is unfamiliar with the spirit of the buffalo. It is meaningless to him and therefore empty. But, the structure of the human thinking machinery, the understanding that soul is the prime mover in the genesis of human thought, is something we can employ to our benefit and make work as citizens of the new millennium. Deatsman and Bowersox weave the old throughout the new, never stripping shamanism of its mysticism, but unrelentingly championing the retooling of the shamanic worldview towards practical application. If you want to see where shamanism has been, and still catch a ride on where it is going, buy this book. You will be glad you did.

An intriguing and practical resourse that changed my life

It might be helpful for you to know that I am a practical man. I like things simple, down to earth, and real. I am not into spiritual matters, or any matters, that are "out there". If they don't apply in useable ways, forget it. I am a psychologist and Coordinator of case-management at Community Mental Health. I look for things that help me help people in substantive ways. Every now and then I come across a book that I just know from the moment I open it and read the Introduction that there will be information throughout the book that will inspire, challenge and motivate me to make important changes in my self and life. Seeing in the Dark is one of those few books. From the first chapter to the last, Colleen and Paul take you through step by step explanations of tools and methodologies, unique and enlightening wisdom about consciousness and being a soul, and offer over a hundred journeys from their solid foundation of years of personal and professional experience. If you are seeking knowledge, profound self healing and deep peaceful comfort, you will want to absorb this book from cover to cover. With each chapter I found thorough discussion of the information and was taken by the authors into the heart, soul and dynamics of the content and journeys with ease and understanding. Those who are drawn to work with the depth and power of their own soul, the guidance and support of spirit, and the energies of nature, whether beginner or experienced, will receive great benefits in absorbing this gem of a how-to book.

Seeing in the Dark: Claim Your Own Shamanic Power Now and in the Coming Age

Seeing in the Dark: Claim Your Own Shamanic Power Now and in the Coming Age If you are feeling unfulfilled or incomplete in some way, if you cannot quite figure out why your life isn't working the way you expect, or if you are just searching for something more, then you have found the right book. I've recently read Eckhart Tolle's New Earth and began to put it into practice, that is, to some extent. There was still something not quite right. I was having difficulty staying clear. After reading Seeing in the Dark, I discovered that it was my "programs" or things I learned as a child that became self limiting behavioral patterns that blocked my progress. This book shines a light on that and follows through with a direction. Where Eckhart lays the groundwork for new thought patterns, Seeing in the Dark drives it home with insight, knowledge, and airy meditations. Seeing in the Dark is clearly THE FORERUNNER to ALL shaman books. If you are ready to clear the fog of your self deluding behaviors, this IS THE PRIMER!!!

Self-empowerment at its finest

Seeing In the Dark is packed full of information and exercises that will assist the reader in realizing their own Shamanic power and making true connections with themselves and others.
