Shamanism is a spiritual practice that has persisted since ancient times in Siberian, Mongolian, Indian, Native American, South American, Australian and other cultures around the world.
Originally shamanism developed from our tribal ancestors’ ways of exploring and working with the universal forces of the sprit worlds and interacting with them to achieve healing and balance for their communities and its members, reaching higher state of consciousness and remarkable spiritual knowledge and skills in the process.
Today, people from any walk of life can choose to follow a shamanic path to open up their life to natural healing, expansion of consciousness and personal growth. In this book, discover the origins, background, cosmology and practices of traditional shamanism before being introduced to the first steps in your own shamanic journey, from power animals and guardian spirit, to working with nature, ancestors and soul retrieval.
