I am going through the process of removing the word “Shamanism” from my online presence. I will not be changing completed articles but moving forward, there will be a new language which reflects the truth of my practice, which is not based in any culture but the land before me and the spirits who love me.
Bringing the word to the West in order to teach crucial spiritual wisdom has served it’s purpose. Now we see that certain ways of relating to spirit, the land and our communities is a core human way of being. We do not need to source from other cultures for this knowledge. We have been handed off through our initiations to our own spiritual friends and allies as our teachers and healers. We have learned to walk our path, drink from the wells and find our ceremonies through our personal relationships with them. We share what we find with each other and collectively, we grow. This is the way of humans, stars and earth.
Grateful to all the many people’s of the world for their contributions and wisdom. Weaving on and at home with the medicine of the land.
