Healing of the Soul: Shamanism and Psyche
Ann M. Drake gives us one of the most detailed descriptions of shamanic healing in the literature. The text begins with her shamanic initiations in the jungles of Borneo and takes us through her journey as a clinical psychologist dedicated to the healing of her clients. In so doing, she extends the territory of shamanism into clinical psychology by demonstrating, through clinical case histories, how shamanic techniques such as soul retrieval and extraction enhances the healing of numerous types of tramatuc and dissociative disorders. Healing of the Soul is a must-read for all mental health professionals wanting to integrate shamanism into psychotherapeutic practice.
