How does one receive the "call" to enter onto the shamanic path? What causes some people to change their safe, uneventful, and ordinary lives and start on a spiritual search? For many it is a singular instant, a flash when the mystical reveals itself and the person is drawn into the world of shamanic power. For a few, it is a more gradual awakening, filled with numinous events that build upon one another until the calling of the shamanic path can no longer be ignored.

In this book of remarkable stories, we learn firsthand about the many different forms of the "aha" moment of shamanic awakening, whether they arise from ceremony, near-death experiences, dream messages, or entheogenic substances. We travel alongside Sandra Ingerman, Hank Wesselman, John Perkins, Alberto Villoldo, Lewis Mehl-Madrona, Tom Cowan, Lynn Andrews, Linda Star Wolf, and other well-known shamanic practitioners as they begin their transformations into the prominent shamans we know them as. We experience the real-life shamanic epiphanies of those with unique shamanic paths--teachers, mothers, social workers, academics, healers, and even rappers who have all experienced a moment in time in which they were awakened and the shamanic path showed itself to them.

As each of these unique and beautiful stories of unexpected realization, insight, and inspiration unfolds, we see how these single moments--usually entirely unexpected--are able to transform the individual's life, clearing their vision and allowing a new consciousness to emerge. As a whole, this collection paints a breathtaking portrait of the intricacies of the shamanic path and the paradigm shift of which we all are part.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is a great book to have on your bedside table or to read while waiting somewhere or just stealing a few moments on a lunch break. Either as a gateway into your own personal journey or simply for a good overview of modern day shamanism, Shamanic Transformations is a great read. Highly recommended." * Facing North, Larissa Carlson Viana, December 2015 *
"A wonderfully inspirational `feel good' book containing self-told tales from many well-known shamanic practitioners on their moment of shamanic awakening... Recommended purely as an enjoyable read for anyone interested in or practicing shamanism." * Indie Shaman, January 2016 *
"In Shamanic Transformations: True Stories of the Moment of Awakening, Itzhak Beery, a shamanic healer, teacher and founder of ShamanPortal.org, has gathered almost 50 accounts of "moments of awakening," called initiation in shamanic practice. Indeed, several times in my head I've called this book Shamanic Initiations. Yet that would be a misnomer, because initiation and transformation are two distinct experiences; the contributors not only recount their initiation, but how it took root and changed them irrevocably" * Spiral Nature, Susan Starr, March 2016 *
