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.

For My Friends in Sedona


Be unharmed, be at at peace
Release and be
Envision any coming shock's charge
As a bolt of beauty
A new space unvisited
Reveals a breath change unlimited

My you find your way
with protection absolute
Let the day and Night within you
Bring you
Sing you through
Fixed journeys and moving destinations
