Shamanism is a worldwide earth-based mystery tradition which grows from a single root. This root is the understanding that emerges when a single soul looks out across the land in awe and understands that Nature herself is the divine incarnate. From that root is born the knowledge that behind everything in nature is a spiritual or divine intelligence, whether that is a rock, a tree, an animal or a human. From this one common root grows the knowledge that we all form part of the one divine being.
shamanism is found, it has its own distinct cultural flavour, its own
soul song. And though it may be passed down along ancestral lines, it is the
responsibility of every soul who is drawn inextricably to its mystery, to find
his/her own soul song and reveal his/her mystery.
