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

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.
