What is shamanism?
The word shaman originated from a word in Siberia and
eventually came to be applied to all medicine men and women of indigenous
cultures who's practice includes the flight of the soul. Anthropologist studying indigenous cultures throughout the
world, began to find that for different cultures, there were similarities in
the way the medicine men and women worked with healing and connecting to the
spiritual aspect of people and the world. While there were
differences specific to culture, removing the the cultural reference revealed a core
system of practice. The core practices are called core-Shamanism - a phrase coined by
Shamanism is the practice of these core
techniques, either for healing or to gain spiritual knowledge. Shamanism is sometime
studied with the cultural reference, sometimes without, but the essential nature
of the shamanic practice does not change, nor has it changed since ancient times. It has adapted to fit the times
or the culture, but its essential core has been the same.
Shamanism is not a religion, not unless you want to make it
into one. It has been and is being practiced by peoples of many
religions, from Christianity, to Judaism, to Hinduism. You will find
shamanic practitioners of every faith.
So what then is shamanism?
It is a direct experience of spiritual knowledge.
Because of the direct nature of the work, it tends to facilitate growth in
every religious faith. People will share shamanic experiences in groups,
but the insight you gain from shamanic practice are unique to you.
As a healing practice shamanism has been very powerful
for both the people of today and those reaching back into the
beginnings of recorded history.
The reason that it is so powerful is because
each healing is tailored to the needs of the individual being healed.
Western medicine seeks to find one cure that works for many, if the number it
helps is too small it isn't offered at all. The shaman provides unique
treatment, which holistically addresses what a person needs at this time.
