Itzhak Beery: The Gift of Shamanism



Interesting stories REALLY poorly edited A great anecdotal work consisting the author s personal experiences in shamanism No how tos or instructions but a book that opens the imagination to possibilities beyond this reality Fascinating and often nbelievable real life stories from all different perspectives regarding the Shamanic powers healing potential and skillsMore than the stories loved the most the parts where the author was describing and teaching different methods and how people could tap into their very own Shamanic knowledge Itzhak Beery is a gifted storyteller In his newly released book The Gift of Shamanism Itzhak Beery recounts his journey from a skeptical New York advertising executive to an accomplished shamanic practitioner and teacher Through his riveting stories of visions that manifested in reality Beery reveals that we all have dormant visionary powers waiting to be realized This capacity to bring knowledge and healing from alternative realities and parallel dimensions is the gift of shamanism It is a gift that all we humans share By embracing this gift we can actualize our shamanic potential to change ourselves and the world around s I highly recommend that you read this insightful book and apply its teachings to your life A Wonderfully Inspiring ReadI ve known Itzhak Beery since early 2001 when I first attended the New York Shamanic Circle NYSC then actually called the New York Drumming Circle I had gone there at the suggestion of Edy Nathan a powerful healer in her own right because she felt that shamanism would do me some good It certainly did I was an active member of the NYSC for a good twelve years before becoming what you might call a lapsed shamanic student participating in the monthly circles only intermittently at best and rarely attending workshops and other special shamanic events as I had in the past I do keep p with my daily morning shamanic ritual however calling in the spirits from the seven directions and offering thanks while seeking continued protection and assistance From my time at the NYSC what I remember most about Itzhak a founding member of the group was his warmth and friendliness and how he made me and others feel so at home from the very beginning month after month year after year At some point I learned that Itzhak was a shamanic practitioner but I had no idea of the depth of his involvement ntil I read his inspiring book The Gift of Shamanism Nor had I ever heard Itzhak or other members of the NYSC leadership share his or their own shamanic journeys or mystical experiences Till now In his thoroughly enjoyable book The Gift of Shamanism Itzhak shares his awesome experiences as a shamanic healer providing so many wonderful insights along the way Highly recommended for anyone with an interest in or curiosity about shamanism as well as for those deeply immersed in this ancient spiritual practiceIn the introduction Itzhak reveals that he has gone from skeptic to believer This was news to me Nor did I realize that Itzhak had been raised as a Jewish atheist I d never heard of Jewish atheists before In the intro Itzhak also writes that The shamanic experience is truly about learning to surrender to the magical and.

Join in the workings of life s mysterious forces This resonates with me completely tho as an editor I d change surrender to to accept It s a subjective matter I don t like the idea of surrendering and I don t see a need to hereLater in the introduction we encounter a subchapter on WHY A BOOK OF STORIES Itzhak answers his own estion with I choose to write a book of stories that might connect with you emotionally and guide you indirectly into the shamanic way of seeing I agree wholeheartedly with this approach an approach I followed in my 2007 book Journey Into the Mystic From the Streets of Brooklyn which in the interests of full disclosure Itzhak had so generously endorsed In the first chapter on How It All Started Itzhak begins with a story about a chance encounter at a local bookstore which rings so true The author mentions how his Mortal Sin upbringing as an atheistic Jew on a kibbutz was the perfect introduction to the basic principles of shamanism deep connection to nature close encounters with death boundaries of imagination a sense of history and the importance of community and storytelling The tie ins are in a word or two highly synchronistic His Albert Einsteinote falls right into placeIn Chapter 2 Dreaming Itzhak begins with a John Lennon How to Win an Argument... Even When You Lose uote on how John believed in everythingntil it s disproved I love Lennon but can t go along with his philosophy here As a lawyer okay I m a lawyer I confess I nderstand that the burden of proof never rests on one to disprove a negative It is the responsibility of the person offering the positive version eg Fairies exist to prove his or her point All that aside in this chapter I found particularly interesting Itzhak s account of a scary dream that followed me on and off for than eight years The details are intriguingChapter 3 presents Itzhak s work with past life regression I ve been down this road myself As the author notes Most indigenous societies hold a deep belief in reincarnation So do I And the stories that the author relates support the premise that we have all lived past lives Captivating Soul retrieval is the basis of Chapter 4 As Itzhak notes It s hard to describe exactly what a soul is yet he achieves that objective His stories and experiences regarding soul loss and soul retrieval are most illuminatingChapter 5 is about plant medicine to which I have never been drawn ite the contrary The plant medicine promise reminds me of the Sixties rap which proffered that LSD was the gateway to Nirvana Didn t turn out that way at least not for me More like a horror trip thru Hell From the messages and lessons that Itzhak reports he came back with from his ayahuasca trips well frankly I already knew all that Granted it s one thing to know and another to experience And thanks to Itzhak for sharing his ayahuasca experiences which confirm to me that I d rather take a walk along the summer shore of Brighton Beach after a glass of wine on at Tatiana s on the Boardwalk then embark on a trek thru the jungle to ingest ayahuascaIn Chapter 6 the focus is on shapeshifting with which I am very familiar Here as elsewhere Itzhak s description of his experiences is very detailed and vivid adding even credulity to his accountsI very much enj. Smiss these experiences However by embracing these gifts we can Aquinass Way to God unlock our shamanic potential to change ourselves and the world aroundsRevealing his transformation from skeptic to respected shamanic healer Itzhak Beery explains how after countless prescient dreams and visions throughout his life that he brushed off a series of synchronistic events led to his first shamanism workshop with Michael Harner renowned shamanism scholar and teacher This in turn led to a trip to South America with John Perkins to work with indigenous shamanic healers Beery shares his experiences with ayahuasca rituals in the messages from power animals and plant spirits dreams that foretold future ev.

Oyed the chapter 7 on Seeing with the mind s eye I have never heard the concept expressed effectively than how Itzhak describes it Impressive is the stat which Itzhak gives indicating that In my workshops96 percent of the participants successfully see one or true elements about their partner I appreciate statistics like this could have Bijoux en origami used of them eg for X number of success stories presented here there were Y number of failures Chapter 8 is about shamanic journeying the hallmark of the NYSC The chapter begins with aote from Michael Harner who spearheaded the interest in shamanism among Westerners All of nature has a hidden nonordinary reality Harner states via Itzhak Yes to be sure Itzhak writes of journeying to other realities and while this may sound far fetched to the The Hokku or Epigram Versus of Basho uninitiated Itzhak s experiential stories demonstrate individually and collectively how effective and healing shamanic journeying can beCandle reading is the topic of Chapter 9 This is a process in which we have occasionally engaged at the NYSC I like Itzhak s intro stating that Around each person s physical body there is an invisible energetic body or illuminated body sometimes called the aura which houses our memories emotions traumas and the spirits of our ancestors and the living The personalized stories areite movingIn Chapter 10 Itzhak embarks into psychonavigation ie long distance viewing Interesting in particular how Itzhak recalls one experience that had a strong impact on me and that was Prison Ramen uite terrifying It s not all a ride down Easy Street as Itzhak points out and as I have learned the hard wayThe experiences Itzhak shares in the chapters on holographic experiences house clearing healing ceremonies Aztec seeing andsing shamanic vision in business are like all of the discussions in the book easy to read crystal clear and highly inspiring I especially appreciate how throughout the book Itzhak humbly admits that he continually experienced self doubt and would at times dismiss his visions as a fluke Been there felt thatI would be remiss if I didn t mention Itzhak s illustrations which are interspersed throughout the book His artwork effectively captures shamanism in the act something I ve never witnessed before We Are All Shamans is the title of the book s epilogue which begins Learning from my clients life stories and from my own childhood I believe that as young children we come into the world highly open to the world of magic and mystery I couldn t agree Itzhak continues with a few suggestions to help you develop your intuitive skills including Take notes of your life s strange coincidences aka synchronicities accidents or flukes Nothing happens without a reason I tend to agree for the most part but as Itzhak indicates in his book sometimes it takes a while to figure out the reasonIn sum Itzhak Beery s The Gift of Shamanism is a book well worth reading for anyone at all interested in learning about the shamanic way For those of s who ve been at it for years the book is an insightful excursion into and meaningful validation of that which we have experienced I love this book says premier shamanic teacherauthoranthropologist Hank Wesselman on the acknowledgements page Ditto say I here.
