This is a gripping account of an almost incredible journey Keeney, a prolific author, professor, and psychotherapist, took into shamanism as practiced in remote areas of several continents. Keeney believes himself to have been led by the spirit of Black Elk, an Oglala Sioux medicine man who died about the same time Keeney was born. After being well established at a university and without hallucinogens or spiritual teachers, Keeney had visions that led him to shamans all over the world and to a merging of diverse spiritual practices and a strong belief in human equality. Recommended for New Age collections and large public, academic, and seminary libraries.
