The art of realizing meaningful coincidence in the seemingly mundane with mystical or esoteric significance."

Strive to Become Your Own Shaman

"Accompanied by his stunning photographs, Phil Borges tells the story of visiting and meeting traditional seers in many parts of the world. 
For over thirty years Phil Borges has been documenting indigenous and tribal cultures, striving to create an understanding of the challenges they face. 
His work is exhibited in museums worldwide and his award winning books have been published in four languages."
I think we are all capable of becoming our own shamans, as long as we stay grounded and don't fall victim to a "messiah complex".
Shamanism is about connecting to the "Collective Unconscious"/Holy Spirit and going within, but also connecting with the world around us, which we are part of too.  
These videos tend to express what shamanism means to me and the words of that great modern shaman written above, Albert Einstein, couldn't have expressed it much better.
I quite like Sue Moondragon's take on Shamanism in the video above...apart from the spinning wheels I'd rather just watch them go round;-)
I'm not endorsing any of the people in the videos above, I just like some of the ideas expressed by them and their idea of what shamanism is.
To me the shamanic journey is about following YOUR own heart, not someone else's.
