Shamanism is one of the most popular spiritual practises these days. More and more people are wanting to learn about shamanism and many pagans are exploring the shamanic roots in traditions such as druidry.
A free workshop on shamanism is being run at the 2014 Mind Body Soul Experience in Manchester in May. It is called, The Shamanic Path: Re-dreaming the World - and if you scroll down to the bottom of this page you can find out how to win free tickets to the entire show.
The details I've been sent about the Shamanic Path workshop explain that anthropologists have identified shamanic practises in tribal cultures, both ancient and modern, the world over. Despite being spread over all areas of the globe, it seems that our ancestors, although from a wide range of beliefs, had much in common.
In many shamanic traditions a shaman is chosen or called, sometimes by healing him or herself of a serious illness, such was the case with workshop tutor Jez Hughes who has travelled widely and undertaken many ceremonies with indigenous elders.
Those going to the MBS Experience in Manchester are invited to step away from the hustle and bustle of city life to go on a brief journey to explore the ancient pathway of the shaman.
Using the power of the drum, ritual and ceremony you can learn to connect with the ancestors and the unseen world of spirit, seeking spiritual guardians to help on this journey. In these times of transformation you can discover ways in which we can help re-dream and shape a more harmonious future for ourselves and all of creation by joining Jez at Mind Body Soul Manchester in a renewal of old ways.
