Product description


"A very interesting and important book by a major authority on contemporary Tibetan shamanism and on shamanism in general. He makes a contribution not just to shamanic studies, but to the preservation of the threatened spiritual heritage of the Tibetans themselves."
-- Michael Harner, PhD, author of The Way of the Shaman and Cave and Cosmos: Shamanic Encounters with Another Reality

"Larry Peters has devoted his life to studying Nepalese shamanism as both an anthropologist and as a practitioner, and so writes with a rare combination of deep personal experience and professional expertise."
--Roger Walsh MD, PhD, University of California, author of The World of Shamanism

"Larry Peters has spent decades researching the healing practices in Tibetan shamanism. Tibetan Shamanism: Ecstasy and Healing is an ethnography of shamanic healing and the transmutation of soul in a Buddhist culture that ostensibly does not recognize the concept of soul."
--Sandra Ingerman, MA, author of Soul Retrieval: Mending the Fragmented Self and Walking in Light

"Larry Peters has an intimate knowledge of ecstatic healing methods among Tibetans and Nepalese, and his book shows how close he is to the shamans, and that he has an understanding of their reality made possible by extended field stays. I met many of the people Peters writes about during my stay in Nepal in 1970/'71 and meeting them again in Tibetan Shamanism is a most welcome experience."
--Per-Arne Berglie, PhD, professor emeritus, History of Religions, Stockholm University

"I've known Dr. Larry Peters's deep work on the shamanic healing practices of the Tibetan peoples for two decades. Professor Peters's experiential knowledge of this healing tradition makes this book a must read for anyone interested in Tibetan shamanism or shamanism in general."
--Bhola Banstola, Nepalese Shaman, president and founder of Nepal Shaman
