What is shamanic healing

Shamanic healing

Contents The main part of the book is made up of case histories from Ms. Hackl's practice. These are structured according to various aspects, which makes orientation easier. These case histories are interesting and convincing. Before the main part, Ms. Hackl describes what shamanism is, which is certainly helpful as a basis for understanding the main part. It also describes the lower, middle and upper worlds as well as a few exercises on how to approach these worlds yourself. From my point of view, this has little connection with the actual concern of the book, as Ms. Hackl herself repeatedly emphasizes that not everyone can be a healer and that one should not fool around without training, which I fully agree with. In addition, there are good introductory books as an introduction to the basic techniques of shamanism. The book concludes with a connection between shamanism and the Christian religion. Here, too, it is not entirely clear to me how this relates to the main concern of the book, even if the information provided is of course interesting and informative. Subjective impressions I have already read a lot about shamanism and in the more “theoretical” part I found some things that I had already read differently in other sources and whose new point of view and explanation could not fully convince me. Ms. Hackl repeatedly points out that you have to find a real shaman, that he needs a good education etc. I can only agree with that, even if it annoyed me a little while reading. I read the case studies with pleasure. Again and again I am fascinated by what can be achieved with shamanic methods, even if it remains a mystery to me. But as the saying goes: He who heals is right. And with that in mind, no one should be withheld from healing or relief. I find it very positive that Ms. Hackl also repeatedly points out that conventional medicine and alternative methods should work hand in hand. However, I would have liked a little less often even better besser The use of Anglicisms is certainly not necessary, as there are also German terms for the corresponding things or concepts. Conclusion I can warmly recommend this book to anyone who would like to get an insight into healing work with shamanic methods. However, if you want to become a shaman yourself (e.g. for your own interests), we recommend other introductory works that deal with the introduction to these methods in more detail and in a more targeted manner. I am pleased that I had asked for this book to be sent, and thank the publisher for making the review copy available.
