Hank Wesselman

Biography:

Anthropologist Hank Wesselman, PHD., is one of those rare, cutting edge scientists who truly walks between the worlds. He received his Master's degree in zoology at the University of Colorado and his Doctoral degree in anthropology from the University of California. Hank first became interested in indigenous spiritual traditions back in the 1960s. Since then, his work as an anthropologist has allowed him to spend much of his life living among traditional peoples in remote areas, seldom, if ever, visited by outsiders.

Since the early 1970s, he has conducted field research exploring the ancient, eroded landscapes of East Africa's Great Rift Valley in search of answers to the mystery of human origins. He is currently doing research in the Middle Awash Valley in northern Ethiopia. It was out in the tribal lands in southern Ethiopia, that Hank first began to experience spontaneous altered states of consciousness similar to those of traditional shamans.
