David Abram learned to perform magic in college, and that experience eventually gave him access to traditional magicians and shamans in oral cultures, where he learned that such figures are only incidentally healers; their primary function lay in operating as ambassadors between human communities, and their non-human neighbors. An accomplished storyteller and sleight-of-hand magician who has lived with indigenous shamans in Indonesia, Nepal, and the Americas, David lectures and teaches regularly on several continents. He has authored various entries in the new Encyclopedia of Religion and Nature, while his essays have been published as cover articles in Tikkun and such journals as Orion, Parabola, Environmental Ethics, Adbusters, Resurgence, and The Ecologist.
