The Shaman and the Magician: Journeys Between the Worlds.

Drury, Nevill

 The impetus for this book comes from anthropologist Drury's conviction that human nature requires mystery: "to know where the sacred aspects of life may be found and how to understand the intuitive." He holds that both shamanism and magic provide the means of transforming the profane world. He describes the common features in shamanism and contemporary Western practices, primarily magic, but also various psychotherapeutic techniques. Drury suggests that the mythic approach to human consciousness plays a vital role in the modern world and that the Western mystery tradition of magic and mythology offers a possible alternative to persons not able to embark on the shamanic path.
