An Invitation to Awaken to a Reality of Wonder and Infinite Possibility
In a time when our scientific understanding of the universe has never been greater, why do so many people feel unhappy and alienated? As Dr. Hank Wesselman explains, our search for objective knowledge has come at the cost of a deeper, intuitive rapport with nature and our spiritual selves. The result is a profound disenchantment, one that affects us individually and collectively. What we need now is a "re-enchantment"—a way to renew our relationship with nature, reawaken to spiritual reality, and reclaim the sense of connection and hope that gives meaning to our lives.
The Re-Enchantment offers a compelling blueprint for the emerging transformational spirituality—not a return to the superstition and ignorance of old beliefs, but a "modern upgrade of the path of the shaman" that reconnects us to our inner sources of intuition, power, and healing. Here he explores:
• Challenging the cultural mythos—why a new story is arising about who we are and where we fit in to the greater whole
• The role of the shaman as a mediator between the material and spiritual worlds
• Guides, helping spirits, oversouls, and masters of deception—unseen spiritual forces that influence our lives
• Empowering ourselves to be agents of change through the shamanic path of "direct revelation"
"There is new spiritual complex coming into being in our world," writes Dr. Wesselman. "This mystical mosaic draws from many traditions and many cultures, and has the potential to refresh and perhaps replace our current mainstream religions with new perceptions and new insights." With The Re-Enchantment, this leading teacher presents a provocative call to action—to engage the world with a newborn’s eyes, a shaman’s heart, and soul dedicated to a wiser, more compassionate future.
