  The Ishmael Community: Questions and Answers

The Question (ID Number 709)...

    ...and the response:

    The subject you want to study is shamanism. A "subject" search on shamanism at amazon.com will give you plenty to read. Shamanism by Mircea Eliade is considered the definitive modern work on the subject.
