We are initiated many times in our lives. First loves, school graduations, and marriages are initiations, as are illnesses, broken hearts, and job losses. Death may be seen as yet another initiation.

 

Thirty years I worked for three years with Dhyani Farmer (now Wyahoo) and Louise Sunfeather. I had landed in Vermont, after fleeing the pollution and arrogance of Washington, D.C.. Louise was working to integrate traditional Cherokee teachings and Western ideas about psychotherapy...

 

Shamanism


by Ambica Gulati,
Co-Editor of Shamanism

Since my journey with shamanism and spirit guides, I have encountered demons, animal guides, spiritual blockages, plant spirits, and I realised that we act out lives in tune with our soul’s choices. And whenever the choice of the soul does not blend with the physical world, suffering comes in. It is this suffering that then takes us back to our masters and guides who reveal to us our choices and path...

 

Editor's Note from Ambica Gulati: Karma unfolds in many ways. It speaks to us at all times but we understand the language only when our soul becomes a mirror to the universe.

 

Shamanism


by Julie Hoyle

I would be standing on the shoreline looking out at the ocean, watching in trepidation as a huge, dark tornado was forming. Growing in power and strength, the entire sky would blacken, the wind would grow in intensity and the sand beneath my feet would vibrate...

 

Editor's Note: I have also occasionally chosen unwisely not to listen to the Spirits and every time, there was Hell to pay. It has been quite awhile since then and life has been much easier. Shamanism is about relationships, your relationship with your loving and compassionate teachers. The more you practice the easier it becomes to "know' the voice inside.


Shamanism


 

Editor's Note from Peter Clark: Shamanic healing is strictly on the spiritual level - at its essence it is not mental, emotional, or physical. But in the paradigm of the shamanic worldview, the spirit of something, anything, anyone, from human to ant to galaxy and beyond, is considered to be fundamental and core. As a result, shamanic spiritual healing can have profound ripple effects on other aspects of self. When a therapist uses shamanism in conjunction with more generally practiced psychological healing, the results are often quite spectacular. Persistent mental and emotional pathologies that had stubbornly remained under conventional therapy can melt away with the assistance of helping compassionate spirits.

 

Shamanism


by Ida Lawrence

The first question for us to consider is, how do we seek out beauty? We seek out beauty however we must! Years ago when I first moved to the heart of Chicago’s inner city, I was in shock. My thoughts were: “There is no beauty here… there is no nature, no flowers, nothing but lifeless gray! How can the people survive?...”

 

Editor's Note from Carolyn White: Preventive Energy Medicine is all about maintaining our body, mind, and soul in "good" spirits, i.e. keeping our energy level such that life's challenges can be met with grace and courage. After hearing the quote that "beauty is the antidote to fear" Ida Lawrence tells us why it is imperative to find beauty in each our lives and what this discovery can do for our energy.

 

Energy Medicine


by Benjamin Norris

As we go about our daily routines we often pick up the energies around us. Everything has energy, even inanimate objects. People’s energy can be very powerful and affect us deeply in our spirits. Performing a regular spiritual cleansing meditation is a good habit to get into...

 

 

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Cleansing meditations are good, good, good. Another one to try (our author gives two examples in this article)... is to find your quiet place and visualize that you are a strong, hearty tree (really work on getting the visual). Then imagine your roots going far into the earth (spend time here sending them down... further... further)...

 

Meditation


by Beth Beurkens

We humans are interdependent with all life, and we share a unity with all things here on our planet. We are connected to the oceans, the whales, the mountains, the bears, the trees and birds, the sun, moon, and stars. Witness this ancient Sammi Song: The sun is a circle. The earth is a circle. The moon is a circle. The drum is a circle. We are a circle...

 

 

 

 

Shamanism


 

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. This video goes back to a trip that members of the FSS took to Tuva in 1993.
