Michael Harner, "Beating the Drum for Shamanism" by Neal Vahle (New Realities, 1988)

Michael Harner discusses his life and profession in this wide-ranging interview. Michael saw his life's work as an effort to help humans rediscover their spiritual connectedness to the planet and all its inhabitants. Shamanism is an "important part of our ancient human heritage, and essential to the return of spiritual authority to the individual."

"Waiting for Inca-God: Culture, Myth, and History"

One of Michael's classic papers, which addresses a significant riddle involving the persistence of highly evolved artwork among the Conibo people of the Peruvian Amazon. ©Shamanism Annual, December 2018, Issue 31. Reprinted from South American Indian Studies 1:51-60.
