Weaving theory and practice together, MaryCatherine Burgess explores the historically difficult relationship between religion and spirituality by applying cross-cultural elements of shamanism and Dani�le Hervieu-L�ger's Model of "Religion as a Chain of Memory" to her study of contemporary shamanic practice in Scotland.

Within the context of cultural and religious change, she utilises Hervieu-L�ger's analytical model to uncover a shamanic worldview that carries in its memory and practice a lineage of spirituality, not belief. This distinction sheds critical light on a new paradigm of spirituality and religion that reflects how many in Western societies currently respond to institutional religion.
