What is Shamanism? (Ancient Shamanism Vs. Traditional Masculine Shamanism)

“Shamanism, as it should be lived, is the embracing of the Many by the One. Shamanism today is the One asking for assistance and allies from the Many. It tries to control the Many…” — Almine

In anticipation of the upcoming Red Deer, Belgium and Moscow retreats, I ask Almine to define shamanism. Almine speaks of the restoration of the original, ancient shamanism that incorporates both masculine and feminine. And she contrasts this with our common understanding of shamanism, which is a shamanism that overpolarizes into the masculine and is therefore prone to distortion. Almine also explains why shamanism is a special theme in her spiritual retreats in 2014.
