Recommended Reading for those interested in the Shamanic Path

The Shamanic religion as we know it, and that which is practiced herein, cannot be contained in a single text, but has a great many layers and dimensions.  There is not a single sacred text in Shamanism and much of the work we do cannot even be put into words. It is something passed down by oral tradition and practice. It is learned by a student from a teacher through the act of observation, practice and diving into oneself.  The below are suggested texts for the adherents of the Sacred Heart Medicine Faith, though it is important to note that the best learning one can do is through their own self practice and healing.  These books are simply a jumping off point to embracing a Shamanic view of life:
