I'm a shaman and a mindfulness teacher. You may not think that these two identities are at odds, but I'm here to tell you: they are. The Oxford English Dictionary tells us that a shaman, "is a man or woman who is regarded as having direct access to, and influence in, the spirit world which...empowers them to guide souls, cure illnesses, etc..."
