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.

 

Shamanism


by Barry Cottrell

Many people live today with a strong, growing sense of expectation, often laced with apprehension, as if some radical and rapid process of change has been activated, involving a fundamental break with the past which will release us into a new and unknown future. 

It is as if a fresh wind of the spirit is blowing, drawing us ever more deeply into a whole new uncharted terrain, hurrying us along in a process of accelerated maturation toward a renewed vision of the world as a sacred place...

 

Shamanism


by Maureen B. Roberts, PhD

Some of my most powerful soul retrieval and deathwalking work is done in dreams. In connection with my work with schizophrenia sufferers, many of whom are sensitive, brilliant and artistic young men, I recently had a Monty Pythonish dream in which a terrified teenage boy, who had turned 'mad' and run away into a dense tract of forest, was being pursued by a group of white-coated psychiatrists wielding hypodermic needles. They couldn't see him as he hid in the dense thickets, at which point I offered to find him and calm him down through shamanic intervention...

 

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...

Shamanism


by Anais

If someone would have asked me five years ago what a genie was I probably would have said something about bottles and Arabian nights. Now, having survived two of the most intense seizures of my life, having studied with Malidoma Some, travelling to Burkina Faso, Africa to work with Shamans and having begun to integrate with the many many genies I walk with, I am able to share some of what I know and some of what I experience with them...

 

Editor's Note from Ambica Gulati: Aladdin and The Magic Lamp, Genies have come to earth through this fable. But Anais brings alive the world of genies for us from Africa and other countries.

 

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 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 Tom Pinkson, PhD

We all have choice about how we hold painful events from our past in our mind. Denial, distraction, repression, and projection are unskillful energy-draining ways of dealing with pain...

 

Editor's Note from Sue O'Callahan: This is an excerpt from Tom Pinkson's book, Fruitful Aging, a richly inspired guide for creating a vibrant, conscious and loving life. Tom shares some easy to apply exercises to remove the layers obscuring the authentic self.

 

Shamanism


by Michael Watson

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


 

Editor's Note from Peter Clark: Shapeshifting is a classic shamanic experience or state or practice. It can happen on many levels, though of course we are always most intrigued by the physical shapeshift. John Perkins has studied and written extensively about shapeshifting, and he has practiced it in amazing and deep ways. In essence, he has gone through an incredible personal shapeshift - a transformation from the inside out - in his career and life - moving from a shady economic terrorist (supported by both corporations and governments) to an incredible teacher and shaman of the art of shapeshifting.

 

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: This is a music video of shamanic music from Siberia featuring the mouth harp - an instrument used amongst shamanic people in several places. Though the production is not "Hollywood slick," the music is good and the shapeshifter imagery is right on. Enjoy!
