About this product
- DescriptionThroughout history, the uncertainties of life have driven people to seek counsel from prophets, seers and oracles on everything from love to livelihood: people want to talk to their lost loved ones, heal old family traumas, find out about work and determine what the future will bring. In THE WAY OF THE ORACLE, ted scholar, priestess and spiritual leader, Diana L. Paxson, offers a broad overview of the traditions of famous oracles in history: from the pythia at Delphi, the son of Beor, the Irish druidess and the Greenland volva, to today's modern seers who are resurrecting those ancient skills to serve their communities. Paxson identifies the core elements of prophetic practice, her belief in probability rather than predestination and offers exercises and examples to demonstrate how anyone can be trained to do oracle work. Her methods focus on trance skills and improving communication between one's unconscious and conscious mind to brings self-kwledge and help make decisions. THE WAY OF THE ORACLE introduces the practice to a wider audience, by showing how exploring the potential of other minds expands our own.
