The word "shaman" is from the indigenous Siberian language, Evenki. Shamanism describes practices of entering altered states of awareness to interact with spirit worlds, returning with knowledge, guidance, and healing for the shaman’s tribe and individual members. Shamans have been called witch doctors, medicine men, and curanderos, but fundamental shamanic principles are shared by all. Explore shamanic traditions from the Americas, the Himalayas, Central Asia, and Hawaii on Gaia. "Humans are a part of creation and shamanism is our way of connecting with the whole." ~ Will Adcock
