Shamans have been healing people for thousands of years in Indigenous cultures around the world. While there are hundreds of specific, nuanced traditions, the common theme of shamanic healing connecting a shaman with spirits in the spirit world to solicit help in restoring the sufferer’s spiritual power. The shaman will usually first take time and focus to enter a trance state to make the journey to connect with the spirit world. Special music or rituals may be used to help the shaman achieve this state. Once in contact with the spirits, the shaman invokes them to gather information and to help in the healing process, removing and clearing blocked energy. Shamanic healing is thought to best serve those who have experienced trauma, illness, or loss of soul. We’ve started gathering valuable information on this topic, but haven’t yet curated the findings.
