Philosophy and Comments        

Shamanism is an ancient healing tradition and moreover, a way of life. Shamanism involves healing and empowerment through personal transformation and direct experience as well as the healing of our families, communities and environment. By following the shaman's path we can truly learn to inhabit the earth and our being with gentleness and respect.

Ceremony, sacred dance, vision quest, and pilgrimages to places of power in nature are all essential aspects of Shamanism. Through these techniques the shamanic circle embraces us, unifying our lives with strength, healing and love.
