Shamanism is an ancient healing tradition, a way of life. It is a way to connect with nature and live in harmony with nature and all of creation. One could view shamanism as the universal spiritual wisdom inherent to all indigenous tribes. As all ancient spiritual practices are rooted in nature, shamanism is the method by which we as human beings can strengthen that natural connection.
