Book Description

Feb. 22 2008
Creating an alliance and working partnership with the spirits of weather to restore well-being and harmony to Earth and ourselves

• Reveals that, intentionally or not, we affect the weather not only through our actions but also through our thoughts and emotions

• Explains shamanic techniques for working with the spiritual nature of weather

• Special section on “weather dancing” details both its ceremonial and therapeutic aspects

With the growing consensus that global warming is a fact comes the realization that the increasingly violent weather we are experiencing is its chief manifestation. Each storm, each flood, each blizzard seems to break 100-year-old records for both intensity and damage. Reducing emissions of greenhouse gases may be too little, too late.

Through a unique blend of anthropological research, shamanic journeys, and personal stories and anecdotes, Moss and Corbin show how humans and weather have always affected each other, and how it is possible to influence the weather. They present teachings directly from the spirits of weather that show how our thoughts and emotions affect weather energetics. They also reveal the ceremonial and therapeutic aspects of “weather dancing,” a practice used to communicate with the weather spirits.

Weather Shamanism is about transformation--of ourselves, and thus our world. It is about how we can develop an expanded worldview that honors spiritual realities in order to create a working partnership with the spirits of weather and thereby help to restore well-being and harmony to Earth.

Product Description

Review

"The book is very well written. The authors are able to explain spiritual and magical things in a way that is easy to understand. Weather Shamanism is a large format paperback, so it is easy to read, and the price is reasonable. I highly recommend it." (Kathleen Gresham, Houston Shamanism Examiner, July 2009)

“In this time of climate change our planet is asking us to raise our consciousness and awareness and to find a state of peace, balance, and harmony within us. [Weather Shamanism] is filled with brilliant teachings that will fuel your understanding and insight not only into weather but about life itself.”  (Sandra Ingerman, author of Soul Retrieval and Medicine for the Earth)

"Nan Moss and David Corbin have given us a beautifully written book, enriched by an abundance of interesting stories that inspire a greater awareness and appreciation of our interrelationship with weather and all of Nature." (Michael Harner, author of The Way of the Shaman)

Weather Shamanism is quite simply a wonderful, profound, power-filled book, alive with sacred stories and loaded with cross-cultural indigenous wisdom. Nan Moss and David Corbin are master shamanic teachers who reveal what becomes possible when we intentionally align ourselves with the ancient forces of nature to alleviate suffering and help restore order when chaos moves in. This book contains very good medicine!” (Hank Wesselman, Ph.D., author of The Spiritwalker Trilogy, The Journey to the Sacred Garden, and coa)

“With global climate change barreling down on us, the techniques of weather shamanism are essential to our collective survival. Nan Moss and David Corbin share their courageous exploration of these ancient spiritual ways of living with and learning from weather. They have brought timeless wisdom and wit into working with clouds, water, wind, and the ethics of believing humans are in control. This book matters--it has guided me through Hurricane Katrina; serious floods; ice storms; long, hotter and hotter summers; and an unpredicted winter tornado that hit my house in the middle of the night. Our ancestors practiced these ancient arts for countless millennia, and now they are even more relevant to the new world of weather we are experiencing. I say thank you to Nan and David and to this book.” (Martha Ward, research professor of anthropology, University of New Orleans, and author of Voodoo Que)

“Nan Moss and David Corbin have written a wonderful and inspiring guide to living spiritually with weather. I greatly value their insights, as shamanic practitioners, into how we can be conscious and respectful partners with the great spiritual forces that pass across the sky, the land, and the seasons. A book for everyone who hopes to live more consciously with the natural elements.” (Tom Cowan, author of Fire in the Head: Shamanism and the Celtic Spirit, Shamanism as a Spiritual Pra)

"Weather Shamanism offers readers a holistic way of understanding weather and relating to it. . . . For readers familiar with shamanism, the book could be displayed to advantage alongside those by such authors as Tom Cowan, Joan Halifax, Michael Harner, and Sandra Interman." (Richard D. Wright, New Age Retailer)

" . . . full of awe, transformative power, and surprising gentleness and humor. . . . I came away from the book with a profoundly deepened trust in the weather, and that alone is plenty to recommend Weather Shamanism for these meteorologically challenging times." (Gina Covina, Terrain, Dec 2008)

"In print and in practice, Weather Shamanism is about transformation of ourselves, and so our world. It guides us to an expanded worldview that honors and dares to reach out to fearsome, natural forces in order to reciprocally restore harmony to All That Is. I urge everyone who is even remotely drawn to do so to connect to this material and work with the shifts it opens up for you. Our collective efforts will surely be of great benefit!" (Scott Crowenweth, Inner Tapestry, Vol. 6, No. 6, Apr/May 2008)

"Weather affects every aspect of our lives, even our internal organs. Weather working was practiced in ancient days and the authors point out that if we communicate with the weather, we can use this knowledge and practice to not only increase our overall spirituality and relationship with nature, but we can modify it for the better, without the use of contemporary, mechanical means." (Sonia von Matt Stoddard, Awareness magazine, Vol. 15, No. 4, Jul/Aug 2008)

"Weather Shamanism is much less about formulaic technicque than about the quality of our relationships with the natural world. . . . I found this a mature, valuable, and enjoyable rendition of what it means to be in relationsip with the spirits of nature, and how we're all in this together. Highly recommended." (Karl Schlotterbeck, The Henge of Keltria, Issue No. 78,  May 08)

"In a gentle narrative that flows like poetry, Moss and Corbin have written a thorough and encouraging work that will alternately frighten, reassure, and inspire readers." (Curled Up With a Good Book, July 2008)

5.0 out of 5 stars Dancing With Mystery Feb. 24 2008
By Zoeeagleeye - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
If you are like me and you are secretly or blatantly in love with the weather, then you will adore this book. Nan Moss writes with clarity and passion about her knowledge and experience of the various weather beings, angels, spirits and helpers. She brings you into intimate contact with them and then shows you how to go there for yourself. By the time you have finished reading this book, you will be asking yourself: How can I lightly touch, interact with and learn from these divine forces? And you will realize all the answers are in the book and inside you.

Here are some random chapter headings to show you what you have to look forward to:

"What is Weather? Emotion, Reciprocity and Change."
Nan Moss: "The climate and the weather have been master teachers of the principle of change in our world."

"The Sacred Nature of Storm."
Nan Moss: "We have it in our power to cultivate a perspective that is spacious."

"Healing With Weather."
Nan Moss: " . . honoring the weather brings balance and well-being."

Exciting and intriguing, don't you think?

This book is also filled with other people's stories and experiences. You will receive quite a variety of perspectives and methods, but in the end it will come down to your own perspective and method. However, I will bet that even if you are not on a shamanic path, the next time you are confronted with a graphic weather system, from achingly joyful blue skies to dense and determined pouring rain, you will find yourself out there dancing to it with your understanding, your acceptance and your love. Watch, now! See if you don't get a response back!

5.0 out of 5 stars Weather Shamanism March 29 2009
By Dr. Samuel Breidenbach - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Who knew? A warning, if you read this book you will never look at the sky or a cloud in the same way again. Okay, I warned you. For those of you with a scientific bent this has scant pickings, though not completely dry bones. The authors are students of the Michael Harner school of core shamanism and they do great credit to their teacher. So instead of the usual foo foo approach so common in the quick feel good shamanistic style out there this tries to be more down to Earth and generally succeeds.

It is clear the authors have great experience teaching others about weather shamanism and share much that they have learned over the years. In contrast to many other books this is very inclusive of other peoples knowledge and experience and quotes are extensive and well placed.

If you are into shamanism this is an absolute must read. If you are a beginner in this field it may be a bit much, but still a worthy read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful contribution! June 24 2008
By Katrina Leathers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is full of fascinating information, both for people who know about shamanism, and those who are just learning what it is. Gives a wonderful perspective on something we tend to take for granted (weather!), and opened my mind to a new way of thinking about our world, and how we might experience it. Very well written, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating Nov. 8 2009
By Louisa - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I just finished reading this book and already I am wishing for Volume II. I can't believe this is the only book out there covering this vital, fascinating subject! My quest now will be to look for more information. Everyone should read this book; not just shamanic practitioners, but anyone who is concerned about global warming and the extreme weather we've experienced. Anyone who gazes at clouds, loves thunderstorms, and feels alive and awake when the wind stirs, must buy a copy of this right away. I can promise you will never look at weather the same way again. Weather is beautiful, awesome, alive, to be respected, to be danced with.
