Elemental Shaman is a quest into the spiritual world of shamanism. The author travels around the world and explores spirituality through the practices of the spiritual masters around the globe. The book is divided into 4 parts, starting with the element of fire, where the author talks about the significance of ashes, explaining all the ancient rituals and meanings connected to this element.

Having a background in religion studies, Omar tries to interpret ancient civilization predictions such as that of the Maya, referring to the year 2012 and the end of the world. The readers will follow his quest into spirituality and ecology with ample interest to learn about his latest discoveries. Omar also talks about dreams that connect shamans to pagan traditions. The style is simple enough to apply to readers from all walks of life. It is certainly an enjoyable read that will grip the reader with the mysteries the author describes page by page.
