According to the Society for Shamanic Practice, “Shamanism is the world’s oldest spiritual practice, utilizing a set of practical techniques that have helped human beings to survive in all continents of the world since Paleolithic times despite having no contact with one another. Although academics heatedly debate the issue, in our view shamanism cannot really be considered a religion because it has no dogma, no organization, no sacred book, and no recognized leader nor does it have a single founder.
Shamanism organically arose from ancient tribes as a response to the needs of the people.”
“There are a number of advantages of seeing a shamanic practitioner in addition to seeking allopathic medical assistance. One is that the shamanic practitioner will include the energetic dimension as well the spiritual aspects of the situation.”
