About the Author

Claude PonceletClaude Poncelet, PhD (1937-2018) was a physicist specializing in nuclear physics, astrophysics, and cosmology who taught at the university level. Dr. Poncelet was involved in many environmental initiatives, and served as chief staff liaison on President Clinton's Council on Sustainable Development. He taught shamanism in Europe and North America for more than 25 years along with his wife, Noelle.


"As a physicist who has taught at the university level, Poncelet incorporates his knowledge of cosmology, nuclear physics, and astrophysics into his explanations of shamanic principles. Among other things, he ties Einstein's theories of relativity to ancient spiritual beliefs about the malleability of time, Heisenberg's uncertainty principle to the traditional mystical concept of the Void, and the discoveries of quantum physics to the principles of nonduality and interconnectedness." --Spirituality and Health

"Claude Poncelet's impressive account of his own deeply rich shamanic life is an inspiration for anyone practicing shamanism today." --Tom Cowan, author of Shamanism as a Spiritual Practice for Daily Life

"A wealth of information. Through his visionary teachings, Poncelet provides new insights into shamanic practice and invites you to deepen your own practice of shamanism with easy-to-understand instructions. A wonderful book." --Sandra Ingerman, MA, author of Soul Retrieval and Shamanic Journeying

"Claude Poncelet gives a much higher meaning to the modern term 'shamanism' by encouraging readers to seek and find their own spiritual roots. And his work is generous: he writes with a deeply compassionate voice, helping those who are hungry of spirit. As a good Elder, he offers readers wisdom to develop a life that is spiritually sourced." --Arkan Lushwala, author of The Time of the Black Jaguar

"The Shaman Within affirms how we each possess the natural ability to experience our interconnected wholeness with all of nature, even as we engage in our everyday lives and the technological activities of this modern world, which too often keep us feeling separate and isolated behind the screens of our computers and smartphones. Poncelet shows us the way." --Richard Miller, PhD, author of Yoga Nidra

"With a physicist's clarity and a shaman's awareness, Dr. Poncelet makes accessible the sacred interconnectedness of all life and the exploration of reality's deeper dimensions. Whether one is an experienced spiritual traveler or a pragmatic cognitive learner, this book will awaken within you higher levels of insights." --Rev. Deborah L. Johnson, author of The Sacred Yes and Your Deepest Intent

"A doorway into the magic of shamanism, a spiritual practice that offers the practitioner an adventurous and powerful inner life. An inspiring book!" --Gay Luce
