A Review



Based on more than a decade of the author’s successful workshops, this resource expands and refines the unique combination of the hands-on healing modality of Reiki with the life-changing shamanic journey. The resulting knowledge is presented clearly and concisely, making it possible for those with no previous background in Reiki or shamanism to understand, appreciate, and enjoy the teachings while those more experienced can glean new insight for their own healing work. Providing generous examples of shamanic journeying beyond ordinary reality and citing hundreds of case studies from the author’s own private practice, this reference also lists internet references for further research.


"Energy healing is not so much a matter of technique as it is a matter of being able to perceive and follow intuitive guidance from spirit allies. Dreams of the Reiki Shaman offers insights into how to awaken those abilities along with easy-to-follow, practical exercises designed to assist the reader in nurturing healing skills and spiritual growth. I predict that Jim Pathfinder Ewing’s latest book is destined to become a classic for both new and experienced Reiki and shamanic practitioners."

—Rose De Dan, author of Tails of a Healer: Animals, Reiki and Shamanism


"With Dreams of the Reiki Shaman, his growing body of work, and his social networking following, Jim PathFinder Ewing may just be the Carlos Castaneda of a new generation."

— Grace Walsh, Reiki Master Teacher, author of Divine Arrows: Weaving the Path of Divine Guidance


"Jim PathFinder is a competent guide through the realm of the miraculous, putting us deeply in touch with our selves."

— Rowan Storm, musician, educator and frame drum designer for Cooperman and Remo


"The author bridges the worlds of the unseen and the seen to open a door for the shamanic traveller."

— Nicholas Breeze Wood, editor, Sacred Hoop Magazine


"As Jim Pathfinder Ewing so eloquently states, ‘there are many ways to perceive this Dream of the World that we inhabit.’  From the science of shamanism through to a generous sharing of firsthand experience and practical exercises, Dreams of the Reiki Shaman is a marvellous treasure trove of information to increase your awareness of infinite potential realities and expand your own horizons."

— Indie Shaman magazine

n his previous book Reiki Shamanism, Jim Pathfinder Ewing first introduced us to his unique way of combining the powers of shamanism and Reiki. Here

in Dreams of the Reiki Shaman he takes us deeper into his world, his way of working and shares with us insights into his own practice.


The 1st chapter on Apprehending Reality is a fascinating look at how we may

experience expanded states of non-ordinary reality. Quantum physics is used in a very real and practical way to help us understand that; "What one sees and

touches is verifiably; Nothing". By comparing the shaman's and scientist's ways of looking he shows us how although both views are equally valid and relevant, the shaman's view is more expansive and thus gives a different perspective.


The section in chapter 1 is both entertaining and thought provoking explaining

how our minds dismiss the glimpses of non-ordinary reality or the 'little

people' as we move through our day.


Chapter 2 looks at shamanic journeys and the work of a Reiki Shaman in terms of the healing session. This is where, through the sharing of his own experiences and the experiences of his clients, Jim Pathfinder Ewing gives us clear explanations of how he works to remove unwanted energies and to retrieve power animals and soul pieces.


In The final chapter we given more insight into ways of dealing with malevolent spirits, energetic cords, using spirits to provide protection and how Reiki may be used to protect. Explanations and examples of working with light beings or allies, psychopomp and journeying into past and future lives are also shared.


Although there are a few exercises in Dreams of the Reiki Shaman the book's real strength comes from the examples of Jim Pathfinder Ewing's own work. It is here that those who practice Reiki and Shamanism may find new ideas for their own work or even, as I did, look at similarities and differences in ways of working and thus view their own work in a new light with new understanding. It also gives one of the simplest and clearest explaarions of psychopomp I have seen anywhere and takes away a lot of the fear that other authors sometimes generate around some aspects of shamanic practice.


For anyone interested in healing, Reiki or shamanism, this book is a real gift,

a generous sharing of firsthand experience which may open doors to new ways of perceiving reality.-
