Shamanism is an ancient form of spiritual healing found in indigenous cultures all over the world dating back to approximately thirty thousand years ago. Traditionally, it is a path and a way of life where one connects with nature and all of creation, and both lives and works from this place.
The word shaman originates from the Tungus tribe in Siberia and is often translated to mean the “one who sees in the dark.” The implication here is that there exist hidden realities in which the shaman voluntarily moves into an altered state of consciousness and acts as an intermediary between these worlds for the purposes of healing.
Shamanic practitioners work with their spiritual family who guides them during the healing session to help remove blocks, plant gifts and help restore balance within the individual.
Shamanic healing is a natural way of healing imbalances and removing blockages in the physical and energetic systems of the body.
Through the use of natural healing tools, individuals are guided by the life force energy that naturally occurs within every individual to facilitate the healing process of the body and create a healthy balanced system. Some natural healing tools include:
- Hands-on placement
- Power animals
- Spiritual teachers and guides
A Shamanic healing treatment plan includes:
- The first session, for assessment and consultation.
- The second session, for specific treatment.
After these two initial sessions, monthly sessions are recommended for sustainment of change and continual growth.
