What is Ecoshamanism?
There are 5 discreet strand to the principles of Ecoshamanism, which will be discussed further at www.ecoshamanism.net in the future. Please return and join in the discussion when the forum has been set up around these 5 strands. But first and foremost, Ecoshamanism differs from other ecological movements because it is fundamentally based around a connection with Mother Earth.
For now, just to get you thinking:
- In ancient times, people knew how that a symbiotic relationship with the land was necessary in order for eternal sustainability. Somewhere, this went wrong.
- These people also respected the spirits that made themselves available to provide advice and guidance. Again, the knowledge of how to commune with these spirits has been forgotten.
- The symbiotic relationship as well as the relationship with spirit formed the basis of a society that didn't waste, didn't pollute and had enough food for all.
The Ecoshamanism movement is about readdressing this balance and provide healing for the earth. As shamanic practitioners, what can we do to stop the decline of the ecosystem in which we live.
