by Tom Cowan, PhD

These weeks around the winter solstice are undoubtedly the most nostalgic season of the year. (Except for maybe summer.)  The trappings of this season remind us of all the trappings from previous years:  holiday songs, candles, trees, lights, ornaments, tinsel, gifts, wreathes, and the cookies...

 

Editor's Note from Peter Clark: Shamanic experiences in non-ordinary reality happen outside of linear time and ordinary space. Tom Cowan brings that understanding of existence into the cyclical realm of the feelings that many of us often have around the many holidays associated with the winter Solstice. Some feelings and memories may be wonderful, or… not so much, but whatever they are, we can become more self aware of ourselves and our relationship with the rest of the natural world by paying attention to them. Learning from the past is crucial to a more conscious Now and Future.

 

Shamanism


by Isa Gucciardi, PhD

Shamanism is the core spiritual and healing practice of most indigenous cultures. The Shaman serves as the medical, psychological, and spiritual counselor of these cultures. One of the primary responsibilities of the Shaman is to interface between the world of the seen and the unseen...


Editor's Note: This is a wonderful overview of the Shamanic Journey.

 

Shamanism


by Daniel Mirante

Anyone who has ever worked with the Great Medicine will respect what strength of character, courage, determination and powers of surrender are required to follow such a path. His book, Singing To The Plants is an excellent contribution to the field of shamanistic studies, Ayahuasca research, Ethnography, Botany, Anthropology and also that undefinable field of direct experience and knowledge.

 

Steve uses his own compelling experience with meeting and knowing Mestizo Ayahuasca shamans to thread together a detailed understanding of the rituals and worldview of the Ayahuasquero, expressing his understanding of the deep aspects of his subject, such as the entities and forces of the shamanic realms, with a refreshing phenomenological purity, humility, and respect for the mysteries.

Our theme for the past few months has mostly been about how unusual the weather has been – that is, if you consider snowstorms in May, 112 degrees just north of San Francisco, huge tornado outbreaks, and coastal super-storms as unusual!...

 

Editor's Note from Peter Clark: Nan and David publish a weekly blog on the weather - most often from a shamanic perspective. In their introduction to this blog, they write: "To this end Weather Thor’s Day is a space for pertinent, provocative and celebratory teachings, anecdotes, factoids, current events and more regarding weather’s many manifestations, spiritual nature, and how weather and humans affect one another."

 

Shamanism


by Dr. Steven Farmer, PhD

“The old people came literally to love the soil and they sat or reclined on the ground with a feeling of being close to a mothering power. It was good for the skin to touch the earth, and the old people liked to remove their moccasins and walk with bare feet on the sacred earth..."

 

 

Shamanism


by Sarah Finlay

The Wine Spirit is an ancient being who has been brought into ceremony and shared her knowledge and healing with people since pre-historic times.  (My sudden reflections on the significance of wine in the Christian sacraments began to take on a whole new meaning.)  My plant spirit guide, continued to explain that the mind altering medicinal plants might be seen on a hierarchical ladder…

 

Editor's Note from Peter Clark: Ever wonder why alcohol is referred to as “spirits”? One possible answer to that question is contained in this article written by Sarah Finlay. The shamanic worldview holds that all physical forms have associated spirit aspects. Some physical/spirit partnerships have stronger affect on us people than others. This article puts forward a fascinating theory about the spiritual effects of alcohol, and how our awareness and intention is vital to our health in conjunction with the ingestion of the physical/spirit substance.

 

Shamanism


by Sandra Ingerman, MA

Rivers have always reminded me of the magic of life.  My love for rivers led me to wonder whether or not it is possible to reverse river pollution, which led to an interest on a broader level of the reversal of all environmental pollution...

 

 

Editor's Note: Sandra is devoted to teaching people how we can work together as a global community to bring about positive change for the planet and this article describes some of the ways how.

 

Shamanism


by Gretchen Crilly McKay

I am a sangoma. What does this mean? A sangoma is an African traditional healer who merges with her ancestors for the purpose of healing. It is a spiritual calling, not a chosen profession. An apprentice sangoma, called a thwasa, studies with a mentor for approximately two years and must learn how to prepare herbal medicines (muti), how to interpret dreams, how to incorporate spirits, how to diagnose illness through divination with bones, and how to heal both physical and spiritual illness...


Editor's Note: Having personally had the privilege of working with Gretchen in the past, I can attest to her amazing abilities and skills as a shamanic healer trained in the African heritage.

 

Shamanism


 

by Fearn Lickfield

Reconnecting with the spirit of the earth is our deepest healing! Geomancy and the study of Earth Mysteries are returning as recognized and respected fields of knowledge and practice. As our world becomes less stable we turn back to what worked in the past. It is time we transition from a state of reaction and unconsciousness regarding our world, to deep awareness, love and partnership; co-creating with the Earth the vibrant, harmonious world of our dreams...

 

Shamanism


 

Editor's Note: Shamanic practitioner and teacher Gerry Starnes, explains in a very clear way, the fundamental concepts of the shamanic journey practice.

 

Shamanism


by John Brennan

The oversoul is a pure and personal link to the spirit world which comes to us as we take our first breath, and leaves us when we take our last. If our three souls (body soul, mind soul, and oversoul) are out of balance, then our thinking and actions are also out of balance...

 

 

 

Shamanism


by  Paul Levy

The would-be shaman has to pass through the experience of madness without getting stuck in it. In the experience of madness the shaman descends into the underworld of the unconscious, where they have to come to terms with the darker parts of their being...

 

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 and Part 2.
