Jane Shutt is a down-to-earth Yorkshire woman who leads an extraordinary life as one of Britain's leading shamanic healers. Shamanism is an ancient spiritual path that exists all around the world; and a shaman uses his or her close affinity with nature and spirits to help those in need of healing. In The Spirits are Always with Me, Jane Shutt explains what shamanism really is, and how it is especially relevant to us in the modern world as we seek to connect with our roots and with our own sense of inner purpose. She shares her own incredible story and the stories of many of those who have come to her for help and healing. Jane reveals the ways in which shamanism can dramatically help people to turn their lives around. She recalls her own shamanic journeys to other levels of reality, including adventures in the Otherworld, spine-tingling visits to the Land of the Dead and other reaches of existence. She shows how shamanism can offer inroads into anything from curing a physical ailment, to dealing with mischievous household sprites, through to healing a whole city.
"This wonderfully grounded book reveals how shamanism heals our everyday world when we acknowledge the wisdom of our spirits"
"fascinating and insightful"
"This book is an absorbing and inspiring read...There is much compassion, humour and love in this unique volume, with experiences so vividly and colourfully recounted that I felt as though I was actually there with Jane as she journeyed...This is probably the most inspiring read I have yet encountered on this subject. Highly recommended"
"No drama, no sensationalising, just a highly readable account of the author's work with spirits, plus absorbing accounts from the experiences of her students and clients. This gives a unique and informative 'fly on the wall' insight into 'how', 'where' and 'why' shamanism operates...Reading this book, I felt the warmth and expansion of perception found in workshops and sharing circles, where everyone is contributing from their experience, and sharing from the heart."
