Shamanism is the world’s oldest spiritual pathway. It found its roots in the deep and intimate personal relationships with Spirits, journeying into the Other Reality. In this adventure medicine, magic and mysticism are extremely intertwined in a crowded net of relationships, whose separation is infeasible.
A shaman is a pragmatic dreamer, able to fly with the Highest Spirits and to descend in the depths of the Earth and come back with power to share with the community and the Circle of beings connected with him.
Shamanism has not insitutions and intermediaries. It finds its basis in the personal experience, in the direct contact with other worlds, spirits and misteries. Personal experience can’t be replaced without falling in an artifact. Responsabilities are not given in the hands of someone else, but it is our responsability. It’s a challenge.
The shamanic journey brings you in a tumultuous transformation in the way you look at life, introducing you to a new cosmology, embedded with holistic principles and absence of separation. Shamans know that if people change the way they look the world, accordingly their life will be transformed. Reality is not one! Multiple realities are made by practices and beliefs.
“Life is always a choice in our hands.” (El Abuelo Vicente Jua)
THE COMMUNITY - THE CIRCLE
In a very old Shuar myth the shaman of that story at one point says” A shaman can’t live without a community”. That is definitely true. The reasons are multiple and profound.
The drum circle is a meeting of people that practice shamanism and create a shamanic community, like in the native cultures.
