Earth Magic

Circle Network Book Review: Earth Magic - Ancient Shamanic Wisdom for Healing Yourself, Others and the Planet by Steven D Farmer, 265 pages published by Hay House. 

Our lives have become detached from nature and this book provides a way to relate once again to its beauty, meaning and importance and it helps us to appreciate, watch, value, learn from the seasons and cycles of life. Our sacred assignment is to be a steward of this planet and to care for all species. The price of civilisation is one of consumerism, addictions, pollution, global warming and extinction of species. Ancient tribal spirituality, known as shamanism, honours the Earth and has the capacity to heal through the rhythms of the drum, through dance and meditation, through ceremony, storytelling and ritual and through connecting to the Otherworld. The author develops contemporary shamanism around philosophies and practices, giving ancient knowledge a modern approach. We are provided with philosophy and exercises which enhance our understanding of the natural world and how we can work ecologically to heal our life. Drawn rom personal experience and reports from others, the book describes how we can renew our relationship with planetary energies. Steven D Farmer is an ordained minister, licensed psychotherapist (soul healer), an author of several books including Animal Spirit Guides and is the radio show host on Earth Magic Radio. He lives in Laguna Beach, California. I liked this book and was inspired by it. I recommend it. Review by Wendy Stokes
