“A shamanic practitioner is known as one who can “see”, to be able to perceive the worlds that are beyond our ordinary reality.”
Shamanism is among the oldest spiritual practices in the world. With the rise of organized religion many of these practices were lost within cultures around the world. My work is influenced by the teachings of Micheal Harner an anthropologist who studied with indigenous cultures around the world and chose to teach core practices that he found to be near universal among the cultures he studied. I have elected to work with the Foundation for Shamanic Studies because the methods are solid, disciplined, and grounding. A shamanic practitioner is known as one who can “see”, to be able to perceive the worlds that are beyond our ordinary reality. The practitioner can travel the unseen realms with the aid of known helping and compassionate spirits for the purpose of gaining knowledge and healing help for others. The work of a shamanic practitioner focuses on the spiritual aspects of a client’s well-being. This practice can be simple, practical, and profound.
