"If we are victorious in any way we don't have anyone to whisper in our ear that our victories are fleeting. Shaman-sorcerers, however, do have the upper hand; as beings on their way to dying, they have someone whispering in their ear that everything is ephemeral. The whisperer is Death, the infallible advisor, the only one who won't ever tell you a lie."

Don Juan Matus to Carlos Castaneda, "The Active Side of Infinity"

Welcome to Earth Shamans School
As you know, the subject of this course is Shamanism but, we will touch on a lot more than that. Shamanism is a craft and a way of life, not a religion. It can be practiced anytime, anywhere because shamans work with their minds, bodies, and with whatever nature provides. The true nature of shamanism is that while you are learning the craft you heal yourself and, as you heal the self, you also heal others. Learning takes place everywhere; not just in the classroom but from friends, animals, books, spirit guides and life itself. (These lessons are NO Longer monitored)
