Modern Shamanism Is Like Ancient Shamanism
Some things never change. Technology changes, society changes, and people change, but in essence we still don’t know much about ourselves and the universe, and how it all makes any sense. Modern shamanism tries to make sense out of these big questions. Yet the word shaman is a loose term. It only describes a type of wiseman or women from a small geographical location.
The word “shaman” probably originates from the Tungusic Evenki language of North Asia. Yet all around the world similar shamanistic practices have been done by a different name. The general meaning of shamanism can summoned up like so:
“A shaman is someone who is regarded as having access to, and influence in, the world of benevolent and malevolent spirits, who typically enters into a trance state during a ritual, and practices divination and healing.”
Yet it goes much deeper than that, and takes us beyond preconceptions of what healing is.
Modern Shamanism: Standing On The Edge
Although there have been many shaman throughout history and the world, I think there is one commonality.
The shaman is the one who stands outside the box, and is criticized for it. The shaman is the one who can see beyond the status quo, into the great mystery, in order to have it reflect back upon humanity, so we may know the truth about who we are.
In this way modern shamanism can include, in my opinion, anyone trying to bring clarity to the human conundrum. This can include scientists, like Robert Lanza, monks, like the Dali Lama, philosophers, like Omraam Aivanhov, even politicians, like Bernie Sanders, who truly have our best interests in mind.
All of these people can bring healing. Of course, there are the Shaman that follow traditional lines, and you can get a taste of it below.
