Shamanism is about nurturing the soul, our most prized self, the only self that comes with us after we die. It helps strengthen our soul, protecting it from invasion by other powers, and retrieving parts that may have been scared away by traumas. As such, shamanism is a precious tool, a birthright of all humans, that has been colonized by religions, by capitalists, and by media and tech.
Reclaiming our direct connection with our soul, with nature, and with higher powers is the basis of shamanism. For a full explanation of the history of shamanism and its basic map listen to Flight of the Spirit by Jyoti Wind (for free). After that you are ready to go on a journey to meet your Power Animal, an excellent way to begin your shamanic path.
