Doobie Shemer


Doobie Shemer’s incredible life journey began in his birthplace, Kibbutz Givat-Brener, Israel. Yearning to explore life’s meanings, he has traveled widely and experienced many cultures—mystical India, beautiful Cyprus and the oriental South Korea — before making his home in California, where he is practicing shamanism, journeying for others.


Walking with Elijah: The Fable of a Life Journey and a Fulfilled Soul is the story of Doobie Shemer’s literal and spiritual journey from kibbutznik to shaman. As he recounts the significant events in his life – his childhood in Israel, the loss of his father, the influence of Grandma Tova, his introduction to shamanism – Doobie takes us with him on his journeys to the spirit world to share his vivid mystical experiences and the answers he finds to life’s key questions.

Now, twenty years on since he first met Elijah, his Spiritual Teacher, Doobie has incorporated spiritual work into every aspect of his daily life. As a practicing shaman himself, Doobie regularly helps family, friends, and strangers to find answers and solutions that are both practical and spiritual.

Walking with Elijah: The Fable of a Life Journey and a Fulfilled Soul inspires us to fearlessly explore our own spiritual path and to walk paths never walked before.
