Publisher's Summary

Shamanism is the oldest living path of spirituality.

Deatsman's book is a what-is rather than a how-to-practice guide that illuminates Shamanism's core teachings, its healing techniques, it's history and practices around the world, and more.

Not an enjoyable listen

What would have made The Hollow Bone better?

The reading appeared to be computer generated. I'ts a reasonably good technology, but completely inappropriate for this content.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Could not get through the content

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The computer generated voice had no intonation or emotion white reading.

Good book -- horrible narrator

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I would change the narrator -- she sounds almost robotic. Terrible choice of voice for this book!

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Arika Escalona?

The author or someone with a voice personality.

Great intro to Shamanism

The book is a well balanced and interesting intro to shamanism. It's worth a listen even when you had some encounters with the subject.
The narrators voice is very agreeable, a worthwhile listen if you're a beginner or intermediary and like a broader, cross culture perspective and practical tips
