What is Shamanism?
Shamanism is humanity's oldest healing practice; as nearly as anyone knows, it is as old humanity itself. The word shaman means "to know" or "to see in the dark" in the language of the Tungus people (modern-day Tuva, in central Asia), and refers to the capacity of the shaman to access spiritual and healing powers beyond the physical world. Shamans gain this knowledge and power by making contact with spiritual guides and teachers, both in this reality and non-ordinary reality. They use their gifts for the benefit of others and the community, and to maintain balance between their people and the rest of the world. True shamans never use their gifts to harm or gain power over other people. Shamanism is not a religion per se, and so it is compatible with all religious practices -- though naturally the specific form of shamanic practice will be shaped by a person/culture's religious beliefs.
Shamanism in Nepal is mainstream. It exists alongside medicine as a viable healing system. Shamans are consulted by politicians, priests, and laymen alike for healing, divination and as intermediaries with the spirits. The ancient wisdom tradition of Tibetan and Nepalese shamans is passed on through pilgrimage type full-moon initiations in which master shamans, like those with whom we work, transmit power (sakti) for the healing of self and the prosperity of the community.
Participants receive teachings, healings, and initiation from Tibetan and Nepalese shamans, Buddhist lamas, Hindu sadhus, shamans, and cultural experts, as well as visit the major residences of the deities (shrines).Participants will sit in circle with master shamans . come and make the understanding of culture, custom, myth, ritual, and heart-to-heart conversation with shamans. Experience a unique once-in-a lifetime opportunity to study ancient Tibetan shamanism from masters who learned the shamanic ways of divination, extraction, healing and trance from their elders in Tibet. Receive healings and teachings from shamans whose practice reflects traditions that predate Buddhism in Tibet, and share their stories.
Shamans function as spiritual leaders, doctors and physicians, granting healing through the restoration of belief. For the Mien and other Southeast Asian hill tribes, a shaman functions as a religious specialist who works with spiritual forces, serving as a bridge between the spirit world and the physical village community. Shamans consult spirits regarding problems such as curing the sick and guiding the souls of the dead. The spirits then prescribe a ritual, which the shaman must perform as a solution.
