Indigenous and Shamanic Traditions
School of Consciousness and Transformation EWP 6496 3.00
This course explores indigenous knowledge and traditions from the perspective of ancient and current life practices and beliefs of indigenous peoples from all over the planet. Shamanic techniques that arose from indigenous worldviews are studied along with modern-day neoshamanic practices. The animistic belief systems shared by most Earth-based peoples are explored as a way to understand not only indigenous spiritual traditions but also ourselves.
