What is Shamanism?

Shamanism is an ancient tradition of living in harmony with creation that strives to strike a balance between mind, body and spirit for the overall good of the community and the world around them. Shamans practice techniques that involve trance like states into non-ordinary or altered states of being, or what we call Shamanic State Consciousness (SSC). While in these States of SSC the Shaman experiences deep, insightful meaning and instruction from spirits, animal helpers and guides. Upon return to ordinary reality the Shaman then empowers, heals and restores the balance required for well being to them and the members of their community.
