What is Shamanism?

Shamanism is widely believed to be the most ancient form of spiritual healing on the planet, dating back tens of thousands of years. It has been found in many indigenous cultures in North and South America, Australia, New Zealand, Central and Northern Asia, Eastern and Northern Europe and Africa.

The techniques used have withstood the test of time and are amazingly similar around the world, despite geographic and cultural differences among those practicing this mode of healing. Shamanism is about restoring wholeness and balance to people and places. Shamans believe that every cause of illness or disease and dis-ease (lack of ease) has its root cause in a spiritual imbalance and the practice of shamanic healing seeks to heal and restore balance and wholeness.
