Welcome To Our Information Page
    The Shamanism Web Circle accepts pages from people interested in honoring the animal spirits, walking gently upon the earth, or spiritual healing in general. Your page does not have to be about Shamanism. Pages that fail to honor the right of all life to walk their soul path gently upon the Earth will not be allowed into this ring. We are rated appropriate for all ages. Pages that do not conform to this standard will not be added.

In the spirit of community, our ring rearranges itself randomly each week.
We believe this gives the smaller sites increased exposure.

42. Sacred Hoop - The Magazine Of Shamanic Wisdom
An article that first appeared in Tantra Magazine By Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche.
By Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche
Shamanism, an ancient Tradition found in cultures throughout the world, values a balanced relationship between humanity and Nature. Because of the recent alarming increase in pollution and exploitation of the environment, along with the consequential negative ramifications, such as the emergence of new illnesses, it has become even more important for humankind to recover the principle of harmony central to Shamanism in order to repair the damage done to the Earth, as well as to save people and Nature from negativity and illness.
There is an ancient Tibetan myth on the origin of negativity that recounts the causes of illness:
From the vast voidness wherein nothing exists, there arose light, Nangwa Oden (Appearance with Light), and also darkness. Male darkness, Munpa Zerden (Rays of Darkness) lay with female darkness, Munji Gyatso (Ocean of Darkness), and by their union whe gave birth to a poisonous egg.
This egg was hatched by the force of its own energy and steam issued into the sky, giving rise to the negative energy of space. Thunder, hail and planetary disturbances came into existence. The albumen spilled onto the Earth and polluted it, giving rise to naga-derived illnesses such as physical handicaps, leprosy and skin diseases. The shell gave rise to harmful weapons and infectious diseases, and the disturbances and illnesses of humans and animals came forth from the membrane. From the yolk essence there came forth Chidag Nagpo (Black Life-Stealing Fiend) with bulging wrathful eyes, gnashing teeth, and matted hair with blood rising into the sky like a cloud, holding the black cross (of evil power) in his right hand and the disease-dispensing lasso in his left.

This article is about the practice of shamanism; for the musical groups, see Shaman (musical group) Shaaman or The Shamen
Shamanism is a range of traditional beliefs and practices that involve the ability to diagnose, cure, and sometimes cause human suffering by traversing the axis mundi and forming a special relationship with, or gaining control over, spirits . Shamans have been credited with the ability to control the weather, divination , the interpretation of dreams, astral projection , and traveling to upper and lower worlds. Shamanistic traditions have existed throughout the world since prehistoric times. Shamanism is based on the premise that the visible world is pervaded by invisible forces or spirits that affect the lives of the living. In contrast to animism and animatism , which any and usually all members of a society practice, shamanism requires specialized knowledge or abilities. This might be better expressed as 'shamans are the experts employed by animists or animist communities'. Shamans are not, however, often organized into full-time ritual or spiritual associations, as are priests . It is questionnable whether there was an -ism called "Shamanism" until such a thing was invented in the West out of the diverse practices of indigenous people in particular locations worldwide.

46. Schizophrenia & Shamanism
Looking at schizophrenia from the perspective of shamanic tradition.
Schizophrenia and Shamanism Well, we've all been there. Thinking everyone knows what we're thinking, thinking we're directly responsible for events anywhere in the world. Maybe seeing and hearing weird stuff. Maybe you feel that you've died and are wandering, lost, in the Underworld. It's like you've got a new consciousness and an awareness of the interconnectedness of everything. And it all seems more real than anything ever did before. So what's going on? This situation is nothing new. Amongst all peoples throughout the world, 1% of the population has found themselves in this strange and terrifying place. Amongst indigenous peoples, the individual is considered to be experiencing a shamanic initiation and is taken under the wing of the local shaman. The shaman then teaches the apprentice to live with the new consciousness, and to use it to visit the spirit world, usually to find cures for the tribe members. This site suggests that perhaps the methods that these shamans use to control their new consciousness can work for people in the western world that suffer from so-called schizophrenia and manic depression.

When you hear the word "shamanism," what images jiffy-pop into your mind's eye? Most folks picture feather headdresses, buffalo hides, medicine wheels and dream-catchers—all images associated with Native American cultures. But contrary to popular opinion, a "shaman" is not an Indian medicine man, and "shamanism" is not a Native American religion. In fact, many Native Americans find the terms "shaman" and "shamanism" offensive. The word "shaman" actually originates among the natives of Siberia, where it describes a specialized type of holy person. The shamans of Siberia interact with deities and spirits not only with prayer, ritual and offerings, but also through direct contact with the spirits themselves. With the aid of rhythmic drumming and chanting, the shaman enters a very deep or "ecstatic" trance. (In discussions of shamanism, the word "ecstasy" is used in its original sense, from the Greek roots

This section on the ANAM site is devoted specifically to Irish Celtic shamanism and shamanic healing practice. Discussions, courses and holidays exploring our interaction and relationship with the land, our ancestors, finding our true life purpose, and coming home to the heart. Our emphasis is on the practical aspects of shamanic working and in sharing our own experience. Each worker's practice is unique, grown of their own work, experiences, and relationships with guides, animals, spirits and teachers. Perhaps the one thing we all have in common is our deep connection to land and spirit. I am blessed to live in the countryside in Celtic Ireland so this is where my practice is based. Great insights and awareness are always found in openly sharing between all our different paths and traditions....

A Dynamical Systems Model of exceptional encounters in Brazil.
Carlisle Bergquist, MA, Ph.D.c.

Introduction A blue gray horizon loomed outside the window of the plane as it slowly banked and turned toward the airport still miles ahead of us. The plane turned as another glow punctuated the breach between the zodiacal light and the darkness that enveloped the earth below. The glow had the yellow-white tinge of city lights reflected up from a huge urban aggregate of life, power, and activity. As we descended into the dark landscape a long tentacle of lights reached out below, stretching from that still distant aurora. More tentacles appeared below stretching in all directions. Motionless, they laid full the valleys, extended up ridge lines and spilled over crests as if to defy containment. At last the conglomerate of lights radiated below us. We sailed through the sky above it for thirty minutes or more. It was as if we were gazing down at some giant primordial sea creature that had flung itself from the ocean depths and wedged among the rolling hills to await the warming sun of morning. The sprawl below us was not what I had expected. This was not the emerald forest I had imagined, rather it was a jungle of humanity into which we descended. It was not my preconceived notion of idyllic tribal life with the local witchdoctor to show us his healing gifts. It was a world of urban shamans. Not the chic metropolitan healers suggested by the cover of Gabrielle Roth's book titled

Please check back here frequently as new things will be added. Also please visit the home page of the Golomt Center for Shamanist Studies for detailed information about Mongolian shamanism and mythology. Buryat and Mongolian shamanism are essentially one and the same, the distinction of Mongol and Buryat comes late in history, for until the latter part of the 17th century present day Buryatia and adjacent Buryat Mongol regions were an integral part of the Mongolian Empire and had been since the time of Chinggis Khan.

The Contribution of Buryatia to World Culture
"Tenger, humans, fire and water, those are the elements. If we think about it, there is the vast arch of the sky, and the sun and moon, like Tenger's eyes. If we look, the sun is fire, the moon is water. In 50 years' time all of humanity will realize that clean air and pure water are the most important things in the world."
Urgunge Onon

The thing most commonly associated with the Buryat-Mongolian culture from a Westerner's standpoint is the tradition of shamanism. No book about shamanism fails to mention Buryat or Mongolian shamanism. It is without a doubt one of the oldest religious and cultural traditions in the world.

Shamanism from other Siberian Traditions
Here are some sites I have found on the Web about Siberian shamanism from other cultures besides the Buryats. You will find that there are a lot of similarities with Buryat shamanism, which should not be surprising. The similarities are especially strong among the Altaic groups, who are linguistically and genetically close to the Buryats. Furthermore, there has been a lot of sharing of traditions since Uralic, Altaic, and Paleo-Siberian tribes has lived in close contact with one another for thousands of years. I will be continuing to add more sites as my research continues. Please feel free to e-mail me if you have any further links that should be added.

A vague term used by explorers of Siberia in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries to designate not a specific religion but a form of savage magic or science, by which physical nature was believed to be brought under the control of man.

(From Shaman or Saman , a word derived by Bantzaroff from Manchu saman , i.e., an excited or raving man, by van Gennep and Keane from Saman a Tungus word; others say a later dialectic form of the Sanskrit sraman , i.e., a worker or toiler.) A vague term used by explorers of Siberia in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries to designate not a specific religion but a form of savage magic or science, by which physical nature was believed to be brought under the control of man. It prevails among Turanian and Mongolian tribes and American Indians, and blends with their varied religious beliefs and customs. Thus the Turanians believe the shamans were a class created by the heaven-god Tengri to struggle for men's good against the evil spirits . The Buddhist Mongols call Shamanism shara-shadshin , i.e., the black faith, the Chinese tjao-ten , i.e., dancing before spirits. The shamans are variously designated, e.g., by Tatars kam , by Samoyeds taryib , by Ostjaks tadib , by Buriates boe , by Yakut Turks oyun , by American Indians medicine men , In the Bhagavata Purana the Jains are called shramans. In Persian-Hindu the term "shaman" means an idolater. In Tibet Shamanism represents a Buddhism degenerated into demonology. Thus the Mongols say that shamans are closely allied with Odokil, or

hamanism is perhaps one of the oldest divinatory practices in the world to promote healing . By archaeological and anthropological evidence the practice has existed for some 20,000 to 30,000 years, perhaps since the beginning of the human race. Evidence of shamanism has been found globally in isolated regions of the Americas, Asia, Africa, regions of Europe and Australia. Usually shamans are called to their profession in two ways: by heredity or by spontaneous and involuntary election by the Supernaturals. There are some who seek out the training, but these individuals are not considered as powerful. An exception to the latter is found the Native North Americans because many undertake vision quests to ask for healing power or the help of a guardian spirit . The shaman is distinguished from others by the greater number of his guardian spirits, by the intensity of his vision, and by his greater power. Although differences of practices are found among the cultures similarities are found too. The shaman lives in two worlds: the ordinary and the nonordinary reality, also called the "shamanic state of consciousness." To enter the shamanic state the shaman must experience an ecstatic trance , or he will not be able to perform all the required functions or duties. This qualification is what sets the shaman apart from all other priests and adepts.When entering the nonordinary reality, which is an unique altered state of consciousness (see

Information and discussions on shamanism. How to live in harmony and balance withthe Earth, Nature and all that exists through alternative spiritual
Greetings my friends,
Shamanism is a set of tools and techniques used to interact with the spirit world and the world around us. It has no specific pantheon of gods and is attached to no particular culture. It is a way of looking at the world and at yourself. There are no hard set rules, no hierarchy to try and work through. Shamanism is the oldest known form of spiritual practice. It is a time-tested practice, what works is kept, what doesn’t is left behind. When our ancient ancestors prayed that the spirit of the Deer would come to them allowing them a good hunt, they were using shamanic techniques although I am sure that was not the word they used to describe it.
Shamanism is a personal quest for knowledge and inner power, but it is a quest that has traditionally taken place within the confines of a tribe or family group. The same holds true for those who follow a shamanic path today, but our groups might be different. We could work to guide and aid our family or a group of friends or a pagan circle. These groups are just as valid and appropriate a place for a modern person walking a shamanic path as a tribe was to an ancient one. A shaman's place is within a community, not apart from it.
Shamans have held an important place in many different cultures throughout the world since our beginnings. They have been mediators, ceremonialists, healers, diviners, many different kinds of artists and much more. They learn and work with power for both themselves and the good of those around them. They understand the connection and need for balance amongst all things, that all aspects of the world that we share with the rest of creation is alive, humans, animals, plants, rocks, and even the wind.
