Come explore the magical world of Shamanism from a cross cultural perspective! The word Shaman originated in Siberia, and is a Tungus word, meaning “the one who sees in the dark”. The Shamanic practitioner enters an altered state of consciousness to access other dimensions and realities to acquire knowledge, power, and healing. The shamanic practitioners also learn to work with spirit helpers and teachers to aid them on this journey. Shamanism is the oldest form of spirituality with traces going back 50,000 years.
