We humans are interdependent with all life, and we share a unity with all things here on our planet.

The moon is a circle. The drum is a circle. We are a circle...
Editor's note from Peter Clark: Tuva is an amazing land in the eastern part of Siberia with its own culture and rich history. With the help of the Foundation for Shamanic Studies, Tuvan Shamanism has regained its respect and recognition among the Tuvan people and the regional government.
