Shamans, Saints, and Sages: What is a Spiritual Hero, and What Does it Take to Become One?
Date: 2007-08-06   By: Roger Walsh
Throughout history, certain extraordinary individuals have lived, loved, or excelled so well that ordinary mortals have regarded them with awe and bewilderment. Ordinary mortals have wondered and puzzled about the shamans, healers, saints, and sages, even venerated or worshipped them, feeling that they must be more than merely human, even when the heroes themselves made no such claims. Who or what are these heroes? What does it take for ordinary mortals to become one?

Elemental Shamanism: The Power of Fire, Earth, Water, and Air
Date: 2009-04-13   By: Omar W. Rosales
From the steppes of the Himalaya to the jungles of Guatemala, shamanism is a ritual belief system that has been practiced for over 27,000 years. By understanding Shamanism's inherent and integral connection to the four elements--fire, earth, water, and air--we can gain a unique understanding of this enigmatic spiritual tradition. Omar Rosales, author of Elemental Shaman, describes how the shamanic journey truly begins with the four elements.

Date: 2010-01-04   By: Mike Williams
Despite living many thousands of years ago, our ancestors shared with us the same emotions with which we are familiar (love and grief, for example), but they also shared with us a trait with which we may be less familiar: the ability to enter trance to access healing, both physical and mental, of ourselves and others both living and dead. Mike Williams, author of Follow the Shaman's Call, explains how to—and why we should—tap into the shamanistic skills passed down by our ancestors.

Basic Elements of the Shamanic Worldview
Date: 2009-11-13   By: Llewellyn

If one thing has been sacred to our species since time immemorial, it is our trees. Dwelling between the realms of earth and sky, we humans are beings of both worlds, and our very life is a balance and synthesis of form and spirit, below and above. What more appropriate symbol for this could there be than a tree, rooted in the earth, and... read this article
