Neoshamanism refers to contemporary practices that are inspired by or blend traditions and techniques from a variety of traditional Indigenous shamanistic practices. Some practitioners of neoshamanism have trained in a specific tradition but share their wisdom to a broader audience outside of the tradition’s original context. Shamanism itself is a religious practice of interacting with the spirit world for the purpose of directing spiritual energies to the physical world. We’ve started gathering valuable information on this topic, but haven’t yet curated the findings.
Today, practicing shamanism doesn’t mean you have to live in a rain forest or a desert. Thanks to a modern renaissance of shamanic spirituality, practitioners from all walks of life now use powerful indigenous techniques for healing, insight, and spiritual growth.
