Awaken your inner shaman

Within each of us is one who walks in beauty and balance—the one with access to unlimited knowledge, power, and tranquility,” says Dr. José Luis Stevens. “I call this true self the Inner Shaman.” … [click on title for the rest of the post]

A shaman is a man or woman with a special calling to live in two realities at once

A shaman is a man or woman with a special calling to live in two realities at once--- the ordinary world we all know well and a deeper, higher reality, both transcendent and profoundly interior, where everything has a spiritual meaning. The shaman sometimes carries a ladder to symbolize the comings and goings between these worlds, and the drum, one of the tools of his trade, may have markings that show the two worlds within a single circle. With his visionary ability to see the spiritual nature of an illness and perceive deep stories hidden within events, a shaman heals and advises his people. ...

Crash course in Urban Shamanism

By Will Hall Urban shamanism is a broader approach, rediscovering the roots of tribal mind for modern people and putting ancient patterns to use in new forms. Urban shamans reinvent spirit healing for ourselves. All of us have ancestral links to shamanic cultures if we go back far enough, because all societies have origins in tribalism. There are no rules and no end to learning and creativity, as we reawaken our indigenous minds and recreate spirit healing in new ways. … [click on title for the rest of the post]

Shaking medicine

I am struck with gratitude sometimes at the mere thought of how many different things can aid us in healing. It's a sad thing that modern medicine is clutched in a sort of poverty mentality so that it cannot even recognize some of our most profound vehicles of transformation. This is why I share as many different modes of therapeutic practice as I can find. We all respond and resonate to different combinations of things and in the end being healthy and whole is just about learning to live well and that means recognizing that which is helpful to us. … [click on title for the rest of the post]

More shamanic dancing and music (or if you want to be clinical, dance and sound therapy)

I have to say that dancing madly to whatever music calls me has been a far more effective trauma release practice than these more clinically oriented trauma release exercises. That said, we all respond to different methods of care. That is why I always talk about listening to our own internal guidance. We know. Our body knows. Better than anyone else. In the end the only compliance that matters is that which we give to our own deepest knowing. … [click on title for the rest of the post]

Shamanism 101

Shamans are often called "seers" or "people who know" in their tribal language because they are involved in a system of knowledge based on first hand experience. Shamanism is not a belief system. It's based on personal experiments conducted to heal and to get information. … [click on title for the rest of the post

Shaking medicine

I really enjoy Bradford Keeney and have read some of his books. He calls himself a recovering psychotherapist. I like that. His methods now are more shamanic in nature and he's coined the term shaking medicine. Shaking is also a good way to release trauma from the nervous system. … [click on title for the rest of the post]
