The word shaman has its roots in the Tungus language group. It means "the one who knows" or "The One who sees."
Until you have had an experience of shamanic journeying in which you discovered information that you had no prior knowledge of and that you could then prove was correct, I don't think any of this would make sense. I have been using this method for nearly 30 years and am continually surprised by what I learn.
My connection to he new physics is through Amit Goswami and Mark Comings (who has since retired after the death of his wife). Bruce Lipton was a presenter at our medical center's conference.
