Shamanism is the oldest spiritual practice on the planet and has been part of society on six continents. It is fundamentally a system of direct revelation. The word “shaman” comes from “šaman” in the Tungus language spoken by the Evenki people of Siberia. Many other cultures have their own words for the person who fulfills the role of the shaman. Although the term itself is imperfect as applied beyond its original culture, when distilled to its defining essence, shamanism is about a practical and personal relationship to the spiritual.
