by Wendy S. Halley

The ways of spirit are mysterious. Couple that with my tendency to be kind of dense and you’ve got yourself a recipe for utter bewilderment. Such was the case when the spirits came knocking on my door about 12 years ago. At the time, not only was I oblivious to the ‘call,’ but I didn’t even know I had answered. Instead, I just wrote the whole thing off as a very strange experience.

“Life is not measured by the breaths you take, but by its breathtaking moments.” Michael Vance

In shamanism, the belief that there is no death is a concept grounded in the belief of the soul existing in a never-ending process of regeneration...

 

Editor's Note from Peter Clark: Shamans and those who practice shamanism have always worked with both the living and the dead, helping to convey wholeness and healing to the souls of all. Whether the healing is bringing peace and empowerment to one who is dying, resolving open issues and wounds, or helping the spirit of one who has passed get to the place or state where the most positive non-physical experience can occur, shamans help make this incredible transition even more valuable and transcendent. Extraction, soul retrieval, depossession, and shamanic counseling/teaching can help the living before death, and psychopomp can help the dead after their body dies. Both of these can also help the loved ones who remain in the physical after the transition…

 

Shamanism


 

by Franchelle Ofsoske-Wyber

You are sitting on mother earth. The sun has long set and the fire nearby is still burning, although the flames are now small dancing fingers of light. You have been waiting to see the medicine woman...


Editor's Note from Peter Clark: Connecting to the spirit of a plant is the ultimate goal of all flower essence manifestation. The plant spirit represents the consciousness and intelligence of the entire species...

 

Shamanism


by Beth Beurkens, MA

Have you ever stared at the sky when it was scattered with clouds, searching for an answer to an important question? Or perhaps you’ve sought counsel in Tarot cards, the Chinese I Ching or the Celtic Runes. These are forms of oracular guidance and problem-solving known as divination...

 

Editor's Note from Peter Clark: Divination is a cornerstone of shamanic practice. The root word of divination is "divine" - this practice is about seeking the perspective of the Divine. In general, shamanic divination is not about seeking the one true answer - it is not fortune telling, but rather an illumination of many possible paths. There may be a feeling of stronger probability for one of the paths, and if you are a hunter who can only be in one place, you'll probably pick that option. The important part here is that shamanic divination encourages empowered decision making. Perspectives are revealed, along with supporting information, allowing the one receiving the divination to walk with greater awareness on their chosen path.

 

Shamanism


by  Paul Levy

I tried to explain to the psychiatrists that I WAS sick, however, but just not in the way they were imagining. I had a creative, psychological illness, which is to say that my seeming madness was an expression of my creative self, alchemically transforming an underlying perturbance in the field of consciousness so as to heal itself...

 

Editor's Note: A true pioneer in the field of spiritual emergence, Levy describes the correlation between being traumatized, abused, and wounded, and having a shamanic initiation/spiritual awakening. See Part 1.

 

Shamanism


by Paul Levy

In 1981 I spontaneously went into such an ecstatic state that I was hospitalized by what I call the “anti-bliss patrol.” The authorities had become alerted because I was simply unable to restrain my enthusiasm at the “good news” that was beginning to reveal itself to me about the nature of reality...

Shamanism


by Susan Mokelke

I am often asked if there is an article that explains what core shamanism is and how it can be used in everyday life. This article is intended as an introduction to the subject, with references to sources on the Foundation for Shamanic Studies website and to the work of Michael Harner, who originated, researched, and developed it. His classic book, The Way of the Shaman, remains the premiere text on contemporary shamanism...

Native Americans and most of the indigenous peoples of the Earth have known for thousands of years that drumming is a powerful spiritual tool. Only in recent years, though, has the scientific basis come to light...

 

 

 

 

Shamanism


by Steven D. Farmer, PhD

Malidoma Patrice Somé is a healer, teacher, and elder of the Dagara peoples in the small West African nation of Burkina Faso in West Africa. He travels extensively giving classes and workshops, and in one of his teachings, he describes how the Dagara believe there are three levels of intelligence on Earth. Plants are considered to be the most intelligent beings, animals second, while humans capture the ribbon for third place...

 

Shamanism


by Peter Clark,
ATH Asst. Editor of Shamanism

Shamanism is primarily about dynamic experience, rather than static dogma. This brief overview of shamanic cosmology is the result of the experiences of countless shamanic practitioners and shamans over the millennia – perhaps several tens of thousands of years.  It represents the common threads of what has been discovered through the direct relationships the shamans have with their spirit helpers...

 

 

Shamanism


by Ross Heaven

Since 2007 I have worked extensively with La Gringa and her San Pedro. They have guided some of my deepest insights and been present during some of the greatest and lowest moments of my life. She began as my shaman, has become a friend and I now regard her as both of these and as a mentor. I have spoken many times with her about shamanic and spiritual matters and her guidance has always been insightful but I have only formally interviewed her twice about her shamanic practices and healing work with San Pedro...
