 What is Shamanism?…

Shamanism is the oldest spiritual practice known to humankind. This ancient and powerful path teaches us that everything in existence is alive and has a spirit.  We are part of Nature , not standing outside of it.  Through the web of life we are connected to all  life on all levels; Spiritually, Biologically,  Ecologically  and Socially. We can contact and relate to all there is through this web. We know from the archaeological evidence that shamanism has been practiced  Worldwide; in parts of Asia, Siberia, Europe, Africa, Australia, Greenland and native North, Central and South America for at least 40,000 years. (Many anthropologists believe that the practice dates back over 100,000 years.)  Every culture has their own traditions and ways of contacting, working with the spirits and the spiritual aspects of Nature itself.  The cross cultural experiences of this unseen realm are surprisingly similar the world over…  And the most amazing thing is that shamanism is still practiced worldwide today. A practice that dates back so far and is still practiced today must be potent.

Shamanism is for skeptics!

It is 100% experiential. You are not asked to believe anything or to take anything on faith. Only your own direct experience will guide you. There is no dogma or need for spiritual middlemen. This is a practical results based Spiritual discipline.  Shamanism is not a Religion. It is a personal spiritual practice grounded in direct communication with the divine. This is a path of  personal Direct Revelation. There are no intermediaries that stand between the helping spirits and each of us. We all can choose to access  the healing,  guidance and wisdom of the compassionate helping Spirits.

The word “shaman” comes from the Evenki peoples, a Tungusic tribe in Siberia.

In Shamanic cultures it has evolved to  mean “one who sees in the dark” or “one who knows”, reflecting the extraordinary spiritual abilities and talents as an intermediary between their peoples and the Spirit worlds.  A shaman is a man or woman who interacts directly with spirits to address the spiritual aspects of illness, perform soul retrievals, divine information, help the spirits of deceased people cross over, and perform a variety of ceremonies for the community. Shamans have taken on many roles in tribal communities acting as healers, doctors, priests, psychotherapists, mystics, dreamers and storytellers.
