Deep within us is a spiritual essence and within all living things. This understanding is the common root of all shamanic traditions and inspires a deep love and reverence for the natural world and for all beings, deepening our sense of belonging to this vast community of beings with whom we share our home, the Earth.
Wherever shamanism is found, it has its own distinct cultural flavour, its own soul song. Within the British Isles, we have our own Native British Shamanism. Our ancestors left clues for us in myth, story, legend, ballad and song about how to find our way Home, home to our spiritual essence.
It is my understanding that the Old Tradition or 'Elder Faith' is held in its fullness for us in the Other-world. It is the responsibility of every soul who is drawn inextricably to its mystery, to find her own soul song; to link to her own ancestral traditions and, through her connection to her own divine spirit and to the allies in the Other-world, to reveal her mystery.
