The work of the Institute of HeartMath was originally focused on creating beneficial outcomes in business and in sports. They realized that the work they were doing was useful for everyone. They found that feelings affect our physiology, our performance and our health. A wealth of their research may be found here: When I presented at a conference in 2001 in New Mexico, one of the other speake

As the previous discussions have been getting a bit rancorous I thought I post another topic up for comment! Shamans, particularly in tribal settings, keep a focus on balancing the need of of the human members of their communities with the natural world. They also make offerings to nature to feed the spirits, but also to offer their gratitude. Indeed, gratitude is a central feature of a shaman

I'd say it is a clear need that brings the majority of people to a shamanic healer. These needs can include, feeling "stuck", having a condition that isn't resolved through traditional medical and psychological therapies, working through life transitions, support for a chronic illness and chronic pain, addictions, unresolved childhood trauma in spite of extensive psychotherapy, failu

I love your phase "a deeper understanding of reality's plasticity!" It is true that conscious/mind is now considered a primary feature in physics. The 'new" idea is that a consciousness participates in the transition from wave to particle. Consciousness is the intersection of thought and feeling. Feelings are the energies we project into the world when we receive a stimulus. We

Hi Tom, It sounds like you have found a great deal of benefit in your work. Voices and visions are a natural part of many people's lives. So long as they are helping you to be in the world, assisting with negotiating the sometimes perilous journey of living and do not dissociate you from the collective reality then you are on track. The only addition I suggest that would be supportive is t

The work of the shamanic healer is to work to support harmony within a client. From that place of harmony, their bodies and minds are more able to heal. Even though the practice is done in a spiritual context, I would certainly say that the mind/body connection is involved. The tools employed by a shamanic healer are, extraction/depossession which is the removal of energies that interfere wit

The tutelary spirits I work with do provide feedback as we are in relationship and dialog. They require us, in physical form, to do the heavy lifting around correcting the mess we've made of our environment, but are more that willing to offer guidance, support and provide healing when that is necessary.

Hi Susan, I doubt any spiritual method would pass such a test for that is not its purpose. Shamanism is a way to understand one's self and the wider world in a spiritual context that allows the practitioner to interact (I believe that you would say perceive to interact) with non-human species, and the environment. This is possible as everything is thought of as alive and sentient. It is a

It can be very daunting and depressing to see all that has gone off the rails, yet in our personal practices, we can make efforts that make small inroads that can be shared. For instance, we use no pesticides, fungicides, rodenticides, etc. in or around our home and we keep an area in the back "rough." We also keep a source of fresh water (low birdbath with a heater in Winter) avail

By shifting one's mindset and attending to what is right around them. This might involve, negotiating harmonious relationships with people at home, in the neighborhood and at work, maintaining a ecological harmony in and around the home itself, making choices with more than the self in mind, etc. In addition, using journeying to find ways to make things better for all beings in the local enviro

Hi Mark! It is through intention and discipline that all shamanic experiences are facilitated. I've come to know it as the "infinite fabric of vibrations that creates and recreates all matter." I always begin with gratitude, and sometimes use an offering as well to concretize my feelings. I invite all my soul has ever loved or will love to be present as I do this. I offer gra

Shamans use their abilities to perceive that which lies beyond our ordinary senses to negotiate harmony. This may be within a sick person to create wellness, between people in conflict or between people and the natural world. Of course, this task is also not limited to shamans! Toward that end, let's open a discussion and do some brainstorming about how we may all create more harmonious relat

Hi Susan! 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 nea

Thank you for your questions, Susan! Since consciousness is now thought of as a primary feature of physics, I would suggest that expansion of consciousness beyond the ordinary—through shamanic journeying/trance—does influence our psycho-spiritual evolution. If then, our thoughts, feelings, beliefs and experiences are integral aspects of the epigenetic field that influences how our genetic mate
