"Can dreams reveal future events? Can we prove that we have had past lives? Are spirit animals hovering to help us? Beery tells stories from his own shamanic experiences to invite readers into the mysterious world where spirit realms intersect with everyday life. As a self-described "atheist Jew who grew up in a communist kibbutz," he seems continually astounded by his own visionary and healing abilities. His questioning attitude make spirit helpers and flying through the air seem possible and maybe even likely. The book features cheerful, straightforward prose; a demeanor alternately awestruck and humorous; and simple, almost childlike vision paintings. A former ad man, Beery in his shamanic role rubs shoulders with businesspeople and celebrities as well as New Agers, and his open invitation to "unleash your inner modern-day shamanic powers, to ignite your natural intuition, and to become a shamanic warrior, one that learns to face your innermost fears and to act decisively to achieve your goals and dreams despite them" may appeal to a wider audience than more esoteric books in this genre.
