The Shaman’s Doorway is one of the most significant and inspiring works on the relationship of shamanism to both the psyche and society. Drawing on his experience as a psychotherapist and his understanding of primordial shamanic traditions, Stephen Larsen shows the relevance of this path to the modern world and how it can lead to a creative and affirmative relationship with life. “Life dismembers us,” Larsen says, and a new grasp of these ancient techniques for altering consciousness is required to escape from the alienation and confusion caused by our demythologized and industrialized environment. Defining the task of the shaman as one of bringing meaning and healing into life, Larsen clearly shows how the shaman, all too often perceived as belonging to the world’s past, holds the key to our future.

Look through the shaman's door into her/his world...even if only from the temporary view afforded a tourist. Your tour guide will be the psychologist author-who comes with a good set of credentials. Don't worry, you won't need to leave a trail of bread crumbs to find your way back out through the door. Your psychologist/guide will see to that. Honestly though this book is an interesting insightful guide for anyone interested in an integrated synthesis of East/West/mythology/shamanism and contemporary American culture. Im glad I read it!

Rather than focusing on shamanism as such, Larsen writes about the 'doorway,' which he identifies as the mythic imagination. Much of the book will will be familiar to those who have read the likes of Joseph Campbell, M. Eliade and C. G. Jung. The part I found most helpful is on Eastern religious practices. With an Indian teacher Larsen did yoga and meditation for three and a half hours each day. He expected to have more energy, but found he had less. When he had psychic upheavals his teacher could not help him. Larsen observes that Eastern teachings usually say how hard it is to subdue the 'monkey' mind. The mind is a living entity that does not wish to be eliminated. Larsen notes that Westerners are 'eternal seekers of experience: adventurers, not renouncers.' He also questions techniques of sensory deprivation, for they can lead to anxiety, delusions and compulsive fantasies. Paths that deny the self and the world, and espouse nothingness, are life denying. Larsen is in favour of working with the psyche, not obliterating it. Westerners who have tried Eastern practices and found them wanting will gain from Larsen's ideas.

this is one of the most informative books I've read concerning the history of shamanism, mythology, and the dawn of orthodox religion. I recommend it to anyone interested in the subject matter.

This book is useful for creative artists- especially performers who write their own material. It gives concrete and practical information to those looking for alternative methods of sourcing material that is both personal and universal. I use it as a textbook and recommend it frequently.
