Colleen has done a masterful job in showing how shamanism fits into our world today, why it is important, and how to find your own way in making this world a better place for all. Read this book as soon as you can - and 'see the soul of the world in every rock, stream, bird, and cloud."

"A fascinating look at a worldview that is both ancient and timeless. Like any shamanic practice worth its salt, reading The Hollow Bone will challenge cherished beliefs and stretch readers way beyond comfort. Open it, read it, and apply it - only if you dare."
"In The Hollow Bone, Colleen Deatsman reveals how the ancient ways of the shaman offer you timetested pathways to the heart and soul of living in deep wholeness. Stepping back into relationship with the spirit of yourself, nature and the cosmos can provide you with a joy that is both lasting and profound!"
"A comprehensive exploration of shamanism and its application to the needs of our modern times, The Hollow Bone brings clarity to a word often misused and misunderstood. True to Colleen Deatman's expressed purpose, her words are a bridge between the worlds and bring the possibility of Spirit to the collective challenges we all face. Over the years, I have hoped for a book that demystifies shamanic work and makes it accessible to a wider audience. This is that book."
"The Hollow Bone is a treasure trove of information on the origins, symbolism, and history of shamanism, humankind's first spiritual discipline. But much more than informative, the text is experiential, guiding the reader through the author's apprenticeship and initiation into the spirit world of the shaman, and demonstrates that Spirit is still vibrant and active in our hearts, as it has been since the beginning of time. A must-read for everyone journeying on the shaman's path."
