What is Applied Shamanism?

as_icon_large.jpgApplied Shamanism is the study of techniques that are common to most, if not all, shamanic cultures. Through the study of these ancient practices, students gain greater understanding of the nature of reality and healing. In traditional shamanic systems, the Shaman interacts with the world of spirit on behalf of another person. This generally involves providing healing assistance on a physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual level. Today, shamanic practitioners are in a unique position to effect change on many levels. They are informed by modern medicine and psychological thought, and are grounded in the wisdom of the ancients. Shamans and shamanic practitioners recognize that even the slightest trauma has potentially negative long-term effects, and are able to provide assistance on a spiritual and emotional level during surgeries, births, and the loss of loved ones. The study of Applied Shamanism offers a fresh perspective on the nature of healing and provides effective methods for maintaining health on a mental, emotional, and physical level.
