WHAT IS SHAMANISM
Shamanism is an ancient tradition, practice, and way of living and healing that is in harmony and balance with the natural world, with a deep respect for the all life, our fellow animals, planet and one another, acknowledging that we are all connected.
It is an ancient strategy for contacting and utilizing hidden reality or non-ordinary reality to acquire knowledge, healing for oneself and others and problem solving.
As Shamanic Practitioners, we are interested primarily with what goes on below the surface of life, the reasons certain situations occur in our lives, why we behave as we do and the nature of our creation and the deeper existential questions of why and the how we came to be.
Shamanic practice is rooted in the belief that everything has an underlying energy, and sometimes healing work needs to be done to return the energy to equilibrium when it is out of balance.
It is a pathway moving us toward wholeness, living our unique expression and living in a healthy, harmonious, respectful and truthful manner.
With nature at the very heart of Shamanism, and a powerful teacher, we are guided by the natural rhythms, flow and seasons of life.
