Shamanism is a worldview in which the participant experiences all living things as having an energy/life force and should be treated with that respect and honor. It includes the practice of continual gratitude and thankful rituals and ceremonies.
Shamanic techniques are powerful tools in healing the psyche and soul and have been used for over 12,000 years that have been documented through artifacts, petraglyphs and oral history.
