Make shamanic journeys to the Upper or Lower World to get the answer to this question.
~Michael Harner, internationally renowned anthropologist who pioneered the return of shamanism to the West and is the originator of core shamanism, a methodology founded on practices and principles shared by shamans across cultures worldwide. In 1979, he and his wife, Sandra Harner, established the Center for Shamanic Studies (which later became the nonprofit Foundation for Shamanic Studies) in order to study and return the lost knowledge of shamanism to contemporary life and to help preserve the knowledge of the remaining indigenous shamans. His classic book, The Way of the Shaman, has long been considered the premier text on modern shamanism. His more recent book, Cave and Cosmos: Shamanic Encounters with Another Reality, is already recognized as another classic, and shows the cross-cultural reality of shamanic experience.
