A shaman is a man or woman who enters an altered state of consciousness – at will- to contact and utilize an ordinarily hidden reality in order to acquire knowledge, power and to help other persons. The shaman has least one, and usually, more, 'spirits' in his personal service.

Harner, Michael. "The way of the Shaman" (1990), p. 25.

Why Shamanism

Shamanism is not a religion but rather a spiritual philosophy based on the knowledge that what we see with our eyes in normal reality is not all there is. It has been practiced by indigenous cultures throughout the world for tens of thousands of years and involves the traveling from ordinary reality to non-ordinary reality through the use of sonic drumming. This journey is made to enlist the aid of spirit helpers to deal with a client’s concerns. The shaman does not do the healing but rather functions as a "hollow bone" through which the spirits offer their assistance.
