The Spirits of October - Giveaway #2
The graveyard I toured last week was set on a rolling hill. The grouping of graves to the back of this photo above are all much older graves, as are the ones in the photo below. Many date to the 1940's and earlier. A small portion at the very back of the graveyard, up on the highest point, was reserved for the oldest graves. One stone had a date from the late 1880's inscribed on it.
As I walked toward the oldest section of the graveyard, there was a definite feeling of the air becoming thicker. I'm not sure how else to describe it. It was like sharing space in a crowded room. This was one of the few graveyards I've visited where I really felt a palpable energy.
The second book in The Spirits of October Giveaway is "Awakening to the Spirit World - The Shamanic Path of Direct Revelation" by Sandra Ingerman & Hank Wesselman.
From the website:
"Thanks to a modern renaissance of shamanic spirituality, practitioners from all walks of life now use powerful indigenous techniques for healing, insight, and spiritual growth.
With Awakening to the Spirit World, teachers Sandra Ingerman and Hank Wesselman bring together a circle of renowned Western shamanic elders—Tom Cowan, Carol Proudfoot-Edgar, José Stevens, and Alberto Villoldo—to present a comprehensive manual for making these practices accessible and available in our daily lives, including:
-How the original practice of shamanism shaped the world’s spiritual traditions and why it is still relevant today.
-The art of the shamanic journey—a time-tested meditative method for experiencing important spiritual lessons and truths.
-Guidance for avoiding common pitfalls of shamanic practice.
-Instruction for working with your dreams, connecting to your spirit guides, healing yourself and your environment.
-A CD of drumming to facilitate your shamanic journeys."
As always, all you need to do to put your name in the hat for this book is be a follower of the blog or blogger in some capacity (follow the blog, follow on Twitter, find me on FB or subscribe to the RSS feed) and leave a comment. That's it!
