For a long time, “shaman” was a job description, but in our age of consciousness, we understand shamanism to be a potential for healing wisdom within oneself. Shamanism is the native expression of our inborn understanding of healing in relationship to all life.
In this online mentored course, we will discuss facts and ideas about shamans and shamanism from a modern point of view. Our main focus will be to experience certain shamanic realities and learn the use of certain shamanic tools or skills, so that we might approach healing and spirituality from a native perspective.
Edgar Cayce's life story is a good example of modern shamanism. A common theme of shamanic initiation is to be "called" by one's own illness, as was Cayce. A major shamanic skill is "setting self aside," as Cayce would express it. An important service provided by shamans is "soul retrieval," which Cayce practiced through giving readings and recovering past-life memories. Cayce indicated that souls were created for the purpose of companionship. Shamanism allows for the experience of communication with all life forms, animals, plants, and even minerals. We will explore these shamanic activities.
