"Beautifully written, intriguing and mysterious, a
work both of adventure and of serious research."
Graham Hancock, international bestselling
author of Fingerprints of the Gods

"Omar's adventures in Elemental Shaman are
inspiring and lively, with a lot of useful insight and inspiration." —Robert A. F. Thurman, professor of Buddhist studies at Columbia University and author of Why the Dalai Lama Matters

This fascinating true story chronicles one man's journey into the mysteries of spiritual consciousness and the indigenous healing practices of four shamanistic traditions: Toltec, Cherokee, Maya, and Buddhist.

In his travels around the globe, Rosales witnesses the powerful channeled spirit Niño Fidencio, receives messages and healing from a Toltec shaman, and experiences a dramatic soul retrieval from a Cherokee spiritwalker. Rosales travels to Guatemala, where he meets a Mayan high priestess, or a'j' r'ij, and the secret brotherhoods called cofradias, whose mission is to guard Maximón, the last living Mayan god. Rosales's last journey is to Bhutan, the Land of the Thunder Dragon, where he spends time with a holy lama.

"Superb. A real thriller!"

From the steppes of the Himalaya to the jungles of Guatemala, shamanism is a ritual belief system that has been practiced for over 27,000 years. By understanding Shamanism's inherent and integral connection to the four elements--fire, earth, water, and air--we can gain a unique understanding of this enigmatic spiritual tradition. Omar Rosales, author of Elemental Shaman, describes how the shamanic journey truly begins with the four elements.

The mighty dead, divination, and portals to other worlds… there are so many places to celebrate Samhain in the northeastern United States… The cooler weather, the colorful leaves, and, as the memes say, "Pumpkin everything!" Like so many witches, autumn is my favorite season, and Samhain, my favorite Sabbat. As a child I loved... read this article
