So what should you read when you want something meaningful, something that might change your life? No, this time it's not going to be about fiction. This time I want to encourage you to read S. Kelley Harrell's "Teen Spirit Guide to Modern Shamanism".
You are not a teen anymore? Doesn't matter! I believe the book is good for teens (mature and intelligent, the rest might have difficulties with understanding) but also for adults who enter the world of spirituality.
It is a good introduction for anyone interested in shamanism with instructions step-by-step how to begin this incredible journey. Written in a format of a handbook with tasks or questions at the end of each chapter (titled 'What do you think?') help to introduce all the new information into your daily practices.
And what if you are not keen on practicing shamanism? It's still a book for you: broaden your horizons and understand lifestyle and believes other than your own. Who knows, maybe reading it will light that little spark of curiosity just a bit more?
