Her teaching, based on Buddhist principles, emphasizes that we have the ability to open up to and rely on our inner strength, and we can help others who are suffering to do the same. Joan offers stories from her personal experience as well as guided exercises and contemplations to help readers meditate on death without fear, develop a commitment to helping others, and transform suffering and resistance into courage.--From publisher description.
Shamanic voices : a survey of visionary narratives by Joan Halifax ( Book )
16 editions published between 1979 and 1994 in English and held by 638 libraries worldwide
The shaman is the medicine man or woman, the visionary healer who is the central figure in many tribal cultures-the repository of the group's rituals, myths, and secret lore. Though these individuals have eluded most Western investigators, noted medical anthropologist Joan Halifax, Ph.D., has here collected the words of the shamans themselves-some directly from living people, others from hard-to-get primary sources.These eloquent testimonies include harrowing tales of shamanic initiatory experiences; vivid accounts of visionary jouneys; and revealing expressions of the shaman's unique position as the link between the people of his or her tribe with the timeless, ineffable cosmos of which each person-and each culture-is a part. For whether the account is by a Mesoamerican Indian or and African !Kung bushman, whether from Australia, Siberia, or Alaska, there is a remarkable unity to these diverse voices.

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Cultures lacking in material wealth often have a depth of spiritual wisdom far beyond that normally experienced in affluent societies. An important part of this wisdom is a knowledge of rituals appropriate for rites of passage. Another aspect of this wisdom is a sense of kinship to nature. Halifax emphasizes that, while she has traveled to the ends of the earth seeking various spiritual experiences, this is not the essential function of spiritual practice. Exotic experiences, valuable as they may be, are less important than a life of service.
