In The Shaman’s Mind-Huna Wisdom to Change Your Life Jonathan Hammond shows the reader how to align and transform their own mind to see the world through the lens of the indigenous healers of old. He teaches how to think like a Shaman and attune yourself to a magical spectrum of infinite possibilities, unseen truths, alternative realities, and spiritual support. When a Shaman likes what’s happening, he/she knows how to make it better, when they don’t, they know how to change it.
There is no more practical or effective system to guide us into the of the Shaman than Huna, the esoteric and spiritual philosophy which originated in the heart of Polynesia, it is the foundation of many of the shamanic traditions of Hawaii.
Although, Hawaiian Shamanism or Huna may seem quite geographically specific and rather esoteric, it is a practical philosophy that offers readers and students a universal shamanic paradigm that is cross-culturally related to every indigenous spiritual tradition, and is also surprisingly inclusive of many tenets of contemporary psychology, holistic health, and even quantum sciences. Huna offers a framework for successful living that has resonance far beyond the south Pacific.
While Jonathan’ s style of the book is fun and inspirational, he also wrote to provoke and stretch the reader into new ways of seeing themselves and the world. He asks the reader to actively engage in what they are reading, to be self-reflective, to start to make substantive changes in their lives, as they work through each of the experiential practices that he provides throughout the book. The Shaman’s Mind will publish on July 7th, by Monkfish Publishers.
