What Is A Shaman?
A shaman is a person who is seen as having access to, and influence in, the world of spirits. Shamans typically enter into altered states of consciousness in order to commune with the spirit world and they have been known to use a variety of techniques to achieve this, including singing, dancing, drumming and trance.
The term "shaman" comes from the Evenk language of Siberia and originally referred to someone who was able to induce trances. Over time, the term has come to be used more broadly to refer to anyone who is seen as having access to the spirit world and who uses this access to help others.
Shamans are often called upon to heal the sick, either through physical means or by helping to locate lost souls and guiding them back to the world of the living. They may also be consulted for their advice on matters such as hunting, war, and childrearing. In some cultures, shamans are also responsible for passing on knowledge about the natural world and the spirit world to the next generation.
At Centerpoint Healing Services, shamanism is used as a tool for healing. The shamanic practitioner enters into an altered state of consciousness in order to commune with the spirit world and bring back information and healing energy for the client.
