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.

Spirit Releasement

Someone recently sent me these resources, though I don't know much about these particular ones.

"You may find these books of interest, albeit they are written from the standpoint of psychotherapy, as opposed to shamanism. What I most appreciate is that these approaches doesn't just turn entities or dark energies loose, but lovingly sends them on their way to a higher plane. I've got other references for spirit releasement therapy, but these references include the dark energies."

( Bill died a couple of years ago, but his wife is still doing training and healings. I'm hoping
to get some exposure to her when she resumes training next year.)
