This book is mostly on the symbolism and mystical qualities that
different cultures ascribe to different animals, but it has a few
rituals that can be practiced. One of these is described as
Please note that you don't actually physically change shape, but
rather you alter your state of mind so that you become the animal
in your mind. So really, we're talking about a mental
transformation. Also, while I list this under animal - because
that's how it is described in the book - modifying the practice a
little bit could allow you to produce other effects, such as
becoming another person.
Even though the book provides a small warning, I don't think it
stresses it enough, so I will state here, be careful when toying
with altered states of mind. If you get carried away with it, you
may find that it can get carried away with you.
