What is Shamanism?
Shamanism is a practice that involves accessing altered states of consciousness in order to encounter and interact with the Spirit World and channel these transcendental energies into ordinary reality. A shamanic practitioner is a person regarded as having access to, and influence in, the Spirit World. They typically enter into a trance state during a ritual, and practice journeying to non-ordinary reality for divination and healing. Ultimately, shamanism is about producing results, healing disease and disharmony and reconnecting with our place in the web of life.
