A practical guide to shamanic healing, from a pioneer in mind–body medicine "Mike Samuels provides us with new tools and ways of thinking about our capacity to heal. He has been a wonderful teacher for me and can be for you."–Bernie Siegel, MD "Dr. Michael Samuels is one of the leading pioneers in exploring creativity as an important part of every person’s healing journey."–Dean Ornish, MD For more than twenty–five years, Dr. Michael Samuels has been explaining how guided imagery therapy can activate the healing power of our bodies–and make a measurable difference in the treatment of patients with cancer and other diseases. His work has won him respect in the medical community and made him a media favorite (he recently demonstrated shamanic healing on Good Morning America). Now, in this new book, Samuels and Mary Rockwood Lane reveal how to harness the power of ancient shamanic traditions and take guided imagery therapy to the next level. Drawing on Native American and Asian practices, the authors offer a complete, step–by–step program that shows people how to focus the healing power of the mind and achieve real–world results. Among the techniques they explore are creating a sacred space, invoking spirit animals, and using medicine wheels. Filled with inspiring real–life stories of people who have recovered with the help of shamanic healing, this book brings new hope and practical help to anyone on the healing path. Michael Samuels, MD (Bolinas, CA), is one of the world’s leading experts on healing through creative imagery. He lectures and does workshops nationwide, appears on shows such as Today and Good Morning America, and is the author of several bestselling books, including The New Well Pregnancy Book and The Well Baby Book. Mary Rockwood Lane, PhD, RN (Gainesville, FL), an expert on art and healing, is the cofounder and Director of the Arts in Medicine Program at the University of Florida. Together, Samuels and Rockwood wrote Spirit Body Healing (0–471–17674–5).

Ethnographic reports on shamanism portray a varied and specified practice, describing each shaman as identifying with a specific type of medicine power, such as the ability to find lost objects, change weather, or manage stomach trouble. However, contemporary nonnative practitioners seem to have borrowed the term in a very generic sense. Samuels, the author of numerous books on conventional medicine and creative imagery and visualization (Seeing with the Mind′s Eye), and Lane, a registered nurse, author and director of the Arts in Medicine program at the University of Florida, introduce practices that readers can use to become a visionary healer. The authors focus on guided imagery to strengthen intention and commitment, invoke guardian or animal spirits, and "restory" reality. They also provide instruction on making a medicine wheel, moving energy, and creating sacred spaces through prayer and ritual. Undoubtedly, Samuels and Lane are accomplished healers. But while they do remind readers that the shaman′s path is a lifelong endeavor, their book gives the impression hat a few exercises can create an at–home, do–it–yourself shaman, without the rigors or the years of apprenticeship under qualified teachers that traditional shamanism often demands. Recommended for larger alternative healing and New Age collections. — Andy Wickens, King Cty, Lib. Syst., WA ( Library Journal , May 1, 2003)
