Shamanic Psychopomp: Guide of Souls
by F.J. Fritz
Publisher: Feedbooks 2003
Number of pages: 66
Presented in an effort to provide the seasoned practitioner familiar with the basic concepts of shamanism with a guide, I provide first hand accounts to assist the reader with examples of how to accomplish the sacred task of psychopomp. Additionally, I explore why some spirits are unable to complete the crossing and how the shamanic practitioner deals with the trauma entailed in performing the role of psychopomp.
