Animist and Shamanic Spirituality, Mindfulness and Meditation Practices
Reconnecting to the Sacredness of the World
Drawing on ancient animist knowledge and shamanic spiritual (upper-world) practices and applying these to modern life, this book is full of eye-opening and profound insights and is grounded in effective and practical exercises. If you are interested in cultivating a spiritual awareness in your everyday life that is:
- sane, attainable and free of dogma, beliefs and clutter
- life-affirming, embodied and life-enhancing
- rooted in the natural world and in the sacredness of all life
then this book is an offering to you.
For tens of thousands of years, our ancestors were alive to the sacredness of the world around them. For them, the spiritual was not something separate from the world, but their everyday and living experience of the world.
In deconstructing the myths and clutter of modern-day spirituality and showing how we have lost our way, Paul Francis guides us back to these deep roots (and wide branches) of our original, healthy spirituality, one that is of service and use to the world. He eloquently shows us how this is needed not just for our own spiritual development, but vital if we are to heal our profoundly broken relationship with the world around us and begin to put right the damage we have caused. A spirituality that, although ancient, is still deeply relevant and needed now more than ever.
For those unfamiliar with shamanic spirituality and upper-world practices, the book is a practical and comprehensive guide. For those familiar with other spiritual practices, it offers unique and refreshing perspectives and insights.

Praise for "The Shamanic Journey", the first book in this series.
This book is the fourth in the best-selling “Therapeutic Shamanism” series. It is not necessary to have read the other books in the series, however this book does assume prior knowledge of the shamanic realms, and the ability to do shamanic journeys for yourself, all of which is covered in the earlier “Therapeutic Shamanism” books.
