Life As a Badger Taught a Man About Being Human — Science of Us

Lessons from a stint as another species.

 

Hundreds of millions of years ago, long before humans or birds or even dinosaurs, there was a lone mysterious creature, one whose evolution would eventually result in all of the animal species on Earth. Scientists don’t knowexactly what this universal common ancestor was, or what it looked like, but they do know this much: Sooner or later, if we trace our lineage as a species far back enough, we’ll see connections to every animal that’s everlived.

Let them call themselves shamans – Shamanic Reiki Blog – Jonathan Weekes

It’s time to play devil’s advocate on the arguments that as to why people cannot or should not use the term “shaman” to describe themselves.

 

The main criticism I personly have with those who say “you should not call yourself a shaman” is the lack of merit on the ability to actually heal, divine or connect/awareness with the spirit that they are asked to do so on behalf of the client, which after all is the important part of working as a shaman.
