Long time ago, things were different
The entire Earth was sacred
Now is the time to return to nature,
to your inner power, to oneness, to life
Now is the time to return to your breath and to the basics
Everything you need is inside of you
Now it’s time to let it all out
Shamanism is a life journey, it is the timeless wisdom of Spirit.
With its origins in the deepest human past, Shamanism is to be considered neither as a religion, mysticism, New Age spirituality nor a series of esoteric teachings.
It is free of time, notions and paradigms. It is natural and holistic.
As Michael Harner describes: “A two-way spiritual communication that resurrects the lost connections our human ancestors had with the awesome spiritual power and beauty of our garden Earth.”
What is essential is love, harmony with all life and oneness. In fact, from the Shaman’s point of view, our surroundings are not “environment” but family. Restoring our connections with nature and our own authentic nature are at the heart of this ancient understanding.
Many of the practices in holistic health field represent the rediscovery of methods once widely known in tribal and folk practice to help healing and the maintenance of wellness.
For the Shaman, everything is interconnected in an infinite Cosmic Web.
The Shaman bridges between Ordinary State of Consciousness and Shamanic State of Consciousness by stepping out of time. Is the one who mediates between the visible and invisible domain, dances between the World of matter & energy(mana)- the undisputable building blocks of all creation.
This holistic perspective sees no distinction between the physical, emotional and spiritual realms of our existence. Diseases may occur due to either some weakening of a person’s spiritual energy, disharmony in the flow of his/her life force, or not being in alignment with life. In whatever condition we are, our personal power constitutes the basis for our health. In today’s modern terminology, Shamanic practices may also be described as “ancient technologies that create sacred spaces for healing.”
Shamanic healing opens us up to the truth of Love and that we are not lonely; creates space for the body’s innate healing systems.
It makes a new map possible and available.
It is an awakening to the fundamental qualities of who we actually are- whole, healthy and interconnected.
