The shaman would become one with the forces of nature and the earth, gradually coming to command those forces when called to. They live with great love for the earth, nature and all of life, radiating this through their being and uplifting all they touch. For this reason, shamanic practice is deeply grounded in the things of the earth, thereby strengthening our connection with our mother, the earth.
There has been a recent surge of interest in traditional shamanic societies and practices, both from our own distant heritage and particularly those from around the world. This has called many to study the healing practices of these shaman.
