I'm reading posts made by scared colleagues about Entheogens on Facebook. And realizing how many "shamanicly inclined" people it's out there which are so very scared of what they don't understand.
(Firstly I want to point out that in this post I am strictly talking about the religious use of Entheogens practiced by experienced Shamans. Do not confuse this topic with something else or generalize.)
An interesting TED-talk by Graham Hancock. Inspirational for some perhaps. For the dreamers among us.
Graham Hancock speaks wisely about the ancient knowledge that have become lost among western cultures and the need to reconnect with shamanic allies in nature. We are not alone on this planet.
On this day when we are going towards brighter days, give out light and warmth to your fellow human being on this beautiful earth. I'm sending you my hopes of a wonderful, human and peaceful future! I wish you all a great winter solstice!
An interesting way of shamanic learning which can be both an profound adventure as well as moving spiritual experience is doing an outdoor Sitting in nature, also known as "Utesittning" in the northern tradition or "Vision Quest" in Native American cultures.
First off you need to understand that it is very important to recognize that this is a spiritual practice and a way of meditation and should not be taken lightly. So do it because it means something important and research the traditions of doing a sitting before you do.
