About the Author

The pioneering work of MICHAEL HARNER, PhD, brought shamanism to the West. In 1979, he and his wife, Sandra Harner, created the Center for Shamanic Studies, which later became the Foundation for Shamanic Studies, the world's foremost shamanic training organization. In 1987, he left academia to devote himself full-time to shamanism. His classic books on the subject have been translated into many languages.

Reviews

Praise for Michael Harner and The Way of the Shaman

"What Yogananda did for Hinduism and D. T. Suzuki did for Zen, Michael Harner has done for shamanism--namely, bring the tradition and its richness to Western awareness."
--from Higher Wisdom, by Roger Walsh and Charles S. Grob

"Wonderful, fascinating.... Harner really knows what he's talking about."
--Carlos Castaneda, best-selling author of The Teachings of Don Juan and The Active Side of Infinity

"An intimate and practical guide to the art of shamanic healing and the technology of the sacred. Michael Harner is not just an anthropologist who has studied shamanism; he is an authentic white shaman."
--Stanislav Grof, author of The Adventure of Self-Discovery

"Harner has impeccable credentials, both as an academic and as a practicing shaman. Without doubt (since the recent death of Mircea Eliade) the world's leading authority on shamanism."
--Nevill Drury, author of The Elements of Shamanism

"Michael Harner is a great shaman. He also proves that a person can be both a scientist and a shaman."
--Bo Bair Rinchinov, Siberian Buryat shaman

"Michael Harner is the world's best-known expert on shamanism."
--Parabola magazine

"Without doubt essential reading and destined to be a classic on the subject--just as much as his ground breaking Way of the Shaman, written all those years ago."
--Sacred Hoop magazine

"A contemporary classic of shamanic studies."
--Nefer Khepri, Magickal Musings

"Cave and Cosmos demonstrates with many examples of shamanic journeys from [Harner's] students that spirits really do exist and they want us to know that they exist."
--Riverdrum.com

"Cave and Cosmos is likely the most important modern work on the perservation of shamanism and our renunion with humanity's original spiritual heritage."
--Marc Star, New Dawn magazine

"Since the publication of The Way of the Shaman Michael has established The Foundation for Shamanic Studies and has been actively promoting his work through regular workshops and lectures. Cave and Cosmos is a relfection on a great deal of the intervening years research...It is a highly-readable and thoroughly engaging account..."
--Peter J. Morris, MysteriesofSirius.com
