Do you ever wish you had an ongoing relationship with a wise, and loving teacher who has your back for life, who you can call on or enter into deep spiritual communion with, any time you need healing, guidance, insight, or body and soul-level purification?
Indigenous shamans, curanderos, medicine men and women cultivate alliances with the spirits of sacred medicinal plants, in a way that is much like a teacher, student relationship. This teacher student relationship is one that may last a lifetime. As the shaman continues his or her study with the Master Plants, deeper mysteries are unlocked, infusing more power into their ability to work with medicinal plants, make medicine and heal people.
While the path to becoming a shaman involves many years of study, practice, and overcoming initiatory challenges and hardships under the tutelage of qualified teachers, anyone can incorporate the principles of shamanism into their daily lives.
