The urge to open your soul in rituals and create an inner bond with nature is as ancient as humankind itself. Even in this day and age rituals are a path to stable footing and self-awareness. Wolf-Dieter Storl focuses on the traditions of European forest peoples – Celtic, Germanic, and Slavic groups – and on various rituals from America, Asia, Australia, and Africa.
What is the right time and place for a ritual? Why to perform one at all, and what aspect of life does it relate to? Practical questions that will be answered in this book. It showcases ritualistic objects, smoking and auxiliary agents but also plants and animals that are relevant for shamanic nature experiences.
Wolf-Dieter Storl shares essential background knowledge on shamanic nature and self-perception.
Wolf-Dieter Storl: Cultural anthropologist and ethno-botanist. Lectured at various universities and published numerous books that became long-selling successes. He lives on a solitary farm in the Allgäu.
