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 Howard G. Charing

In traditional wisdom and knowledge, life is a continuum that does not end at the moment of death. One of the most important traditional tasks of the seer, shaman, medicine man or woman is to assist people who are either dying or the spirits of those who have died to make the transition into great domain of consciousness...

Editor's Note from Peter Clark: Hank Wesselman recounts his first meeting with Hawaiian shaman Hale Makua, the wisdom he learned that day, and the relevancy of that wisdom to the current state of our world. In the metaphor he uses, we each have a bowl filled with varying amounts of light. Unfortunately, the men who predominantly rule this planet have very little light left in their bowls. We are all challenged to bring more light into our bowls and into our lives. See a related article here.

Whether you agree with American foreign policy or not, it’s difficult to imagine disagreement over the fact that soldiers returning from war should be given the best possible care to recover from physical and psychological injuries incurred in military service...

 

Editor's Note from Peter Clark: Shamanism is a broad practice of accessing knowledge and healing from non-physical intelligent sources - spirits. There are many ways to connect with spirits, and some use psycho-active substances - plant spirit medicine - to make the connection. This article presents one of those ways. I do not have direct knowledge of Iboga, but I do know that the traumas suffered by soldiers in war time are treatable by many forms of shamanic healing - with and without the ingestion of plant spirit medicine.

 

Shamanism


by Mackenzie Blyth

A lot of people pursue connections with spirit. Some are successful, some not. But for some who are successful, they sometimes get a lot more than they bargained for, and it turns out to be a nightmare.

There are also individuals who are not looking, and spirit comes to them. And it’s unwelcome, and it disturbs them. And in some cases it drives them to clinicians with drugs

"The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you're inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save...

 

 

 

 

 

Shamanism


by Wendy Halley

There once was a tiny seed that secretly lived in an old woman’s heart. For thousands of years the little seed slept, nestled in the darkness of the woman’s heart, until one day it felt a slight quiver deep inside its shell. The seed opened its eyes and whispered, “Spring is coming.” The old woman smiled...

 

Editor's Note from Peter Clark: I know some men involved with shamanism, but really, this spiritual path/practice is dominated by women - like so many other awakening paths of the current spiritual renaissance. It feels to me that many more women are "waking up" to walk away from the small boxes they discover around their minds during the dark night of the soul. Wendy Halley is one of these.

 

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

“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 Llyn Roberts

Ipupiara, whose name translates to “Fresh Water Dolphin”, was born into the indigenous Ureu-eu-wau-wau – the “People of the Stars” – when the tribe numbered 2,400 in 1943. Because their Amazon rainforests contain minerals, oil, and precious resources the Ureu-eu-wau-wau have been severely exploited during Ipupiara’s lifetime and only 42 survive...

 

Editor's Note from Peter Clark: Llyn Roberts was a long time friend of Ipupiara Peixoto. She had many amazing experiences with him, and this article recounts one of deep spiritual connection and shamanic healing. Ipu, also known as Bernardo Peixoto, was a multi-talented man whose impact was/is/will be felt in countless lives. A double PhD, speaker of many languages, consultant to the Smithsonian Institute, shamanic ambassador bridging several cultures, educator and healer, Ipu was cofounder of Native Cultural Alliance, an organization dedicated to the preservation and sharing of native cultures and wisdom.

 

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.
