What is Shamanism?

Shamanism is a way of being. It is the medicine path where we walk hand in hand with our spirit allies to find healing, for self and greatly, for community. Community includes the stone people, the tree people, the ocean people, the people in the sky and under the earth, the winged people and the four-legged people as well as the people who live in the faerie mounds, co-created by ourselves and the elements.

Everything that happens in shamanism happens through deep relationship with all of these people, never forgetting our spirit teachers and allies. We don't go anywhere, we don't do anything in the realms without them. For we become their hollow bone.

Shamanism is not a religion. This deep medicine of relationship to the land and the spirits is primal human way of being. It is not bound to one culture. It has been practiced by many cultures across the world that have had no contact with each other, for thousands of years. You can find it in most indigenous cultures as well as in the roots of some of the world's largest religions.

Shamanism holds a world view that everything on this planet counts. All things are beings reflecting the sacred. We are not separate from nature - and certainly not nature's guardian. We are part of nature. We are flesh and blood, bone and dirt. We breathe, we think, we do, we commune; all of these things affected by and affecting all other beings.

We find our center in this magnificent web and we find joy, we find love and rebalance.

We find love and responsibility, for self, others and for our mother, the greatest Boddhisattva, Earth.
