Cave and Cosmos: Shamanic Encounters with Another Reality
In 1980, Michael Harner blazed the trail for the worldwide revival of shamanism with his seminal classic The Way of the Shaman. In this long-awaited sequel, he provides new evidence of the reality of heavens.
Drawing from a lifetime of personal shamanic experiences and more than 2,500 reports of Westerners’ experiences during shamanic ascension, Harner highlights the striking similarities between their discoveries, indicating that the heavens and spirits they’ve encountered do indeed exist. He also provides instructions on his innovative core-shamanism techniques, so that readers too can ascend to heavenly realms, seek spirit teachers, and return later at will for additional healing and advice.
Written by the leading authority on shamanism, Cave and Cosmosis a must-read not only for those interested in shamanism, but also for those interested in spirituality, comparative religion, near-death experiences, healing, consciousness, anthropology, and the nature of reality.

“The Harner System was developed for people in the Western World. he took a lifetime of work in anthropology studying primitive shamanic cultures from all over the world. he sorted out the shamanic practices that were common to nearly all shamanic cultures, he set aside practices that were culturally specific. he called what he had.. “Core Shamanic Practitioner”. though anyone can do whatever they wish.
I found his system simple and remarkable, life changing and effective, you don’t get lost in the details of innumerable traditions.”
