Sound, Synchronicities & Shamanism "He made the whole world an instrument of sound, and an instrument for carrying messages, resounding praise to the Creator of all. - Frank Waters - The Book of the Hopi Sound There is something called the Sacred Sound Current which correlates to the spiritual Hindu "OM" and the Sufi "HU", and the Sant Mat "Shabd". WE DO NOT HAVE SHAMANS: The Case Against "Shamans" In North American Indigenous Cultures WE DO NOT HAVE SHAMANSBy Joseph RiverWind (Boriken Taino) Thanks to the New Age craze that has spread around the world, there are many self-proclaimed "medicine men" and "shamans"—people who claim to follow our spiritual ways, having "learned" everything they know from books bought at the local book store.

How therapy practice can be seen as a neo-shamanic healing journey I have long been intrigued about viewing the process of therapy as a sort of neo-shamanic journey. I am not talking about using ancient shamanic procedures as healing tools.

The Seven Shamanic Levels of Consciousness Preface Although formerly only known by shamans, I present this knowledge now to spiritual seekers and for the benefit of mankind.In 1989 I met a Hungarian Shaman, Joska Soos, in Antwerp, Belgium, who helped people with his private "shamanizations" and classes. Over the years I learned a lot, with new information about shamanism I had never read about in any literature. Among it was the system of seven levels of consciousness. Although he did not talk that much about it, it seemed such a useful system to me that I went further into it myself.
