This is an ongoing US and global project to help enthusiasts, scholars, practitioners, and curious parties learn more about shamanic living in a contemporary culture. The space here is devoted to sharing info, experiences and opinions about all forms of shamanic expression covering shamanism's multiple permutations. Among subjects explored are traditions, techniques, insights, definitions, events, artists, authors, and creativity. You are invited to draw from your own experiences and contribute.

Deep Purple

Bleeding deep within.
Ripping the gut to pieces.
Internal pain releases.
Fear begins to speak.

Washed away in tears.
Lifted toward the light of life.
A new voice is heard.

I am FREE...
I am INFINITY.....
