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.

MEXICAN APACHE: "Someone who has simply learned to give freely of themselves..." AUSTRALIAN ABORIGINAL: "...a teacher or healer, a wisdom keeper of knowledge... (who) takes people to a door and encourages them to enter." W. AFRICAN DIAGRA: "views every event in life within a spiritual context." HAWAIIAN: "...human bridges to the spiritual world and its laws and the material world and its trials..." QUECHUA INDIAN: "embodies all experience." AMAZON: "...willing to engage the forces of the Universe...in a beneficial end for self, people, and for life in general."

World Peace Day, September 21st

This video was inspiring and it felt right to share. I wonder if there is something we can do as a tribe to "lift the consciousness around the most fundamental issue: protection of each other"?

Thanks Night Sings,

Sign me up !

What do you have in mind ?

Here's my first impression:
Perhaps we all go to our favorite or closest tree, connect to it and thru it's roots connect to each other and then to the world. (at a specified time)
Perhaps, you already have something wonderful in mind !

Just let know - (Sept 21 is this Sunday)

I linked this video on my facebook page and also sent it to my friends asking for participation. I'll also be doing a journey to connect through nature. Peace out!
