Shamanism is the oldest form of medicine. All indigenous cultures have practiced it over the millennia—and they still practice it. That’s because it works. Moreover, in the last few decades, this ancient modality has found its way into the mainstream. No longer is Shamanism for the “one” Medicine Man or Woman in the tribe. Now, everyone can practice it.
The word Shaman, or Shamaness if you are a female practitioner, is a Siberian word that means he (or she) who knows. A Shamanic practitioner practices Divination, healing, and journey work through ritual, ceremony and by chanting. He or she moves through what is known as non-ordinary reality with ease, enabling a strong connection with our Spirit Guides.
